Giovanna (frequent Ozpetek collaborator, Giovanna Mezzogiorno) is a young mother of two, beaten down by her marriage to hapless underachiever Filippo and her soul-sapping job as a poultry inspector. The last thing she needs is an amnesiac pensioner in her house, but that's what she gets when her husband invites Simone (the great Massimo Girotti, in his final film role) to stay after finding him wandering the streets of Rome. Gradually, Giovanna warms to the old man, especially when she discovers he shares her love of food. What's more, a tragic love in Simone's past seems to mirror her infatuation with Lorenzo (Raoul Bova), the dashing bachelor who lives opposite. Slowly, as the neighbours join forces to uncover the confused geriatric's true identity, Giovanna realises her life is at an emotional crossroads.
