The film is the story of Nicola, forty-years-old, who inherited a factory from his father in Turin, now on the verge of bankruptcy. Strangled by debt and the banks, the great economic crisis which stifles the whole planet, Nicola decides to solve his problems without any scruples, just as they would do the financial institutions. Laura, his wife, is more and more distant. He is losing her love, but he does nothing to bridge the gap that now separates them. Besieged by the workers who want to know their fate, he is now waiting to conclude a joint venture with a German company. Nicola feels that something is troubling that the only left certainty: his wife. But instead of opening his heart with Laura, he begins to suspect her and spy her. Everything falls. The Germans reject the agreement and Laura announces that she is going to divorce. Nicola goes crazy. Then the wheel of life turns and everything seems to go right again...
In Italian with English subtitles.  A light reception will be offered.

Currently active in all the major cities of the five continents, the ninety Italian Cultural Institutes serve as an ideal meeting place for intellectuals, artists, and cultural operatives, as well as for ordinary citizens, both Italian and foreign, who wish to establish or maintain a relationship with our country. By acting not only as a showcase and source of current information on Italy, but also as a driving force behind initiatives and projects of cultural cooperation, the Italian Cultural Institute has become a focal point for both the Italian communities abroad and the growing demand for Italian culture throughout the world.

By extending the role of Embassies and Consulates, the Italian Cultural Institutes offer the most effective tools for promoting a worldwide image of Italy as a center of production, preservation, and dissemination of culture from the Classical Age until today. Along with organizing cultural events in a vast array of areas, including art, music, cinema, theatre, dance, fashion, design, and photography, the Italian Cultural Institutes:

  • Offer the opportunity to learn Italian language and culture through the organization of courses, the management of libraries and the preparation of educational and editorial materials;
  • Provide the networks and the premises to facilitate the integration of Italian operators in the process of cultural exchange and production at an international level;
  • Provide information and logistic support to public and private cultural operators, both Italian and foreign;
  • Continuously support initiatives aimed at promoting an intercultural dialogue based on the principles of democracy and international solidarity.
