A quirky comedy from the screenwriter of Tale of Tales and Gomorrah. It’s a perfect comedy about an almost perfect town!

Pietramezzana, located high up in the stunning mountains of southern Italy, has become a ghost town. Most of the young people have gone, leaving just a small group of ex-miners, unemployed after the closure of the local mine. But when the opening of a new factory is announced, it could be the solution to all the town’s problems. There cannot be a factory without a local doctor and the only physician around is a yuppie plastic surgeon from the north – Dr. Gianluca Terragni (Fabio Volo), who is stuck there temporarily. The miners must find a way to convince him to stay, but how could they ever make him forget all the comforts of a modern metropolis, such as wifi, sushi and jazz?

The determined villagers, led by the exuberant Domenico (Silvio Orlando) hatch a plan to convince him that theirs is truly the perfect town for him to live.

NOTE: The film is in Italian with ENGLISH subtitles.
