Soap operais a brilliant comedy, which tells the stories of hatred and love, misunderstandings, complications and emotional trajectories which tie the bizarre residents of a building together, just a few hours before the clock strikes twelve on new year’s eve. Francesco (De Luigi) is still in love with his ex Anna (Capotondi) who discovers she is pregnant, Paolo (Memphis) is expecting a baby with his wife, but is having doubts about his sexuality, beautiful Francesca’s (Sednaoui) boyfriend has just committed suicide, Alice (Francini) a television soap star has a thing for men in uniforms, Gianni and Mario (Ale and Franz), the hilarious brother duo, are intimately tied to each other after a car accident forced one into a wheel chair. They will all live a night full of dramatic turns, at the end of which their lives will be changed forever.
