Jep Gambardella (Toni Servillo) is a writer who spends his life in Rome’s high society, yet suffers an aching sense of loneliness. Shocked by the death of Elisa, the only woman he has ever truly loved, he gets to know the stripper Ramona (Sabrina Ferilli), the prince of the church Cardinal Bellucci (Roberto Herlitzka) and the playwright Romano (Carlo Verdone). During a journey, a memory of the first time he met Elisa renews his sense of hope.
