What happens when the teenage children of the most diverse people on earth fall in love?

Giovanni is a politically active intellectual and a prophet of social integration living in the center of Rome. Monica is a former cashier of a supermarket, dealing every day with the multicultural challenges of her suburban neighborhood. They have a common goal: the love story between their children must end!
