Like thousands of other “bamboccioni” in Italy (“big babies”), Mario is thirty, unemployed and lives with his mother; a victim of high housing prices, low wages and mama’s good cooking. With opportunities far and few between, he’s resigned to his lot until suddenly he’s offered a position with the city council, which may pave the way to fulfilling a life-long ambition. Mario throws himself into his new job, but soon finds that success comes with its own set of problems, until a beautiful woman gives him the courage to live his life on his own terms.
