PLOT: Antonio, a former shipyard worker, leads a meek and quiet life: he plays bocce with friends, takes care of his elderly mother, has an ex-wife with whom he is on excellent terms and Emilia, his only and beloved daughter. When Emilia announces her engagement, Antonio is overjoyed; he can finally make her dream come true by giving her the reception that they've always dreamed of and that he's saved a lifetime for.
However, his long-time bank seems to be hiding something: the staff is suddenly evasive and the management is a revolving door.
