Italian actress and director Valeria Golino follows up her debut Honey with this drama, an expressive tale of two brothers getting to know each other in extremis.
When successful entrepreneur Matteo (Riccardo Scamarcio) is thrust back into the life of his brother Ettore (Valerio Mastandrea) the encounter is uncomfortable. Matteo is audacious, charming and energetic. Ettore still lives in the small provincial town where they grew up and teaches in a middle school. Ettore is a cautious, honest man who has always held back a little, sticking to the shadows.
