Contemporary Milan is the backdrop for this comedic examination of the strained relationship between a father and son. Giorgio is a successful television host; Tito is his layabout teenage son who enjoys nothing more than hanging out with his friends, biking through the streets, playing video games. The tension between them is heightened further when a woman from Giorgio’s past resurfaces with surprising news that could upend Tito’s romantic life.
