Pietramazza, a small town in the mountains of southern Italy – basically, in the middle of nowhere – is dying out. All the young people are leaving, and the few residents left, mainly former miners, survive on just their employment insurance. One could easily be discouraged, but these people are not. Lead by the exhubearnt Domenico they think the opening of a new factory could be the answer to their problems and they start working to make it possible. First they will have to find a doctor willing to move there, since there cannot be a factory without a doctor. Luckily they meet Gianluca Terragni, an ambitious plastic surgeon from Milan. But now- and this is far more complicated- they’ll have to convince him to stay.
How will they make him forget all the comforts of a modern metropolis, such as wi-fi, sushi and jazz? Will an unorthodox cricket team and the gorgeous Anna be enough?
