An enchanting melancholic comedy with a big heart.
Sandro, a poker-faced history teacher in his forties, is still a bachelor despite the constant matchmaking efforts of his parents and his best friend, Ivan. Everything changes when he falls for Manana, a married woman whose husband is about to be released from jail. Unfolding unpredictably during a blind date in which nothing is what it seems to be, this bittersweet comedy paints a gentle portrait of a good-hearted man constantly caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. [12A]
