  • Genre: Drama
  • Runtime: 95′
  • Year: 2011
  • Synopsis:
    “Bruno Beltrame has let it all hang out, for quite a while. All that’s left of his old talentas a writer is just enough to ghost-write “other people’s books”, biographies of football playersor television personalities. His passion for teaching has given way to an apathetic routine of tutoring equally apathetic students, including fifteen-year old Luca, who is as ignorant as the others, but vivacious and irreverent. One day the boy’s mother turns up, like a ghost from the past, revealing a secret that turns Bruno’s life upside down: Luca is his son, a son he knew nothing about… And that is not all: the woman is about to leave for a six-month job as a volunteer in Africa, and the boy cannot follow her there. She asks Bruno to take the boy in, and take care of him, but without revealing his true identity to him. A wonderfully touching and comedic debut feature from the award winning screenwriter of The First Beautiful Thing.”
