Oreste (Alessandro Gasman) is a personal trainer with a despotic wife and the dream of opening his very own gym, a dream for which he is missing 15,000 euro. His father Giovanni Passamonte (Gigi Proietti), afraid of flying, promises him that amount in exchange for a specific task, to accompany him by car to Stockholm, where the old writer will have to pick up the Nobel Prize for Literature. And Oreste, who never accepted money from his father and tried to live as much as possible out of his shadow, finds himself spending a week between Italy, Austria, Germany, Denmark and Sweden, in the company of Giovanni and Rinaldo (Rocco Papaleo), his father’s long serving assistant. They will be joined in the road trip by Lucrezia (Anna Foglietta), Oreste’s half sister and a neurotic pushover of a blogger, who decided to go with them to document the whole enterprise on the Net and increase the number of her subscribers. Giovanni’s progeny tries to define their identities by contrast but what identifies the patriarch is an instinct to harsh truths that drives him to a cruel frankness towards the children that highlights their mediocrity. In the role of Giovanni there is Gigi Proietti, who is a giant of the film screen exactly like his character is a giant in the plot, perfect in the portrait of a man who has traveled the world and has not denied any experience but has exhausted the inspiration and desire to live. During the many legs of this journey packed with unexpected twists and turns, the group bumps into a variety of curious people who ironically call into question all of the lead characters’ certainties, finally forcing them to discover surprising family dynamics and get to the bottom of who they really are.
