Synopsis

Political comedy following the fortunes of two brothers growing up in Italy during the 1960s and 1970s. Set amidst an ever-changing political landscape, the lives of brothers Accio (Elio Germano) and Manrico (Riccardo Scamarcio) are on a collision course. With their political stances diametrically opposed - Manrico is a communist, while Accio follows Fascism - they both also share a love of local girl Francesca (Diane Fleri), which continually simmers away, and occasionally boils over, pushing them even further apart. The story follows the changes both siblings go through over a period of 15 years, as their lives, values, and loyalties change in ways they could not imagine, but which ultimately come to highlight the many similarities they share.
