SCIOCCHEZZE DA STAGNARI
Claudio and Luciana are a young Roman couple. He is a plumber and she is a beautician. They have been married for a few years and live in the suburbs of the capital. They lead a peaceful life amidst the many difficulties of an economic crisis and the lack of prospects. One morning, however, things change. Their treasure, (a small sum of money) kept and saved, the only guarantee for a better future, is in danger. This will bring the couple to the point of no return, but will it really be the case? The finale shows that the devil is not always as bad as it seems, but that the truth is often different from the one on display before our eyes.
