Ernesto is a simple man who tries to pursue his own ambitions without losing sight of the real values in life. Upholsterer, nursery-school cook, mover, driver, film extra: he’s a jack of all trades. With him and his best friend Giacinto, we relive the crucial phases in the history of the country from the 1970s to the present, from the Red Brigades and the ‘Years of Lead’ to the rise and triumph of Berlusconi. With its lucid and ironic perspective on the vices and virtues of Italy and the Italians, the film encapsulates the modern saga of an entire country through the adventures of a hero.
