Renowned director Pupi Avati, whose previous work includes The Best Man, creates this sweeping ensemble drama set against the striking backdrop of rural Italy. Young Ines (Valentina Cervi) is hired as a touch typist for an antique dealer. She soon finds herself falling for the man's feckless son Angelo (Libero De Rienzo).
Though the guy doesn't seem to notice her, she dreams of meeting him at the annual dance. Meanwhile, lovelorn loser (Gianni Cavina) tries to round up bachelors for said dance, which is run by his brother Loris.
