The irreverent and politically incorrect film by Giancarlo Fontana and Giuseppe Stasi tells the story of Claudia (Miriam Leone) struggling with the economic problems of her art restoring activity linked to a substantial non-payment by the State. Claudia, in order not to fail, relies on the pension of her beloved grandmother. The life of Claudia, of the restoration company and of her two collaborators Rosanna (Lucia Ocone) and Margie (Marina Rocco) seems destined to fail when the grandmother suddenly passes away, bankruptcy seems to be looming, so Claudia, with the complicity of her staff, “freezes” her grandma so she can continue to collect her pension until the state pays her what she is due. Is it acceptable to swindle the state when the state swindles you? The spirit of adaptation and desperation mean that the three decide to go to extremes to be able to continue to receive grandma’s pension until the moment in which Claudia can collect the coveted check for 160 thousand euros that the State owes her. In this grotesque situation appears the figure of Marshal Simone Recchia (Fabio De Luigi), Officer of the Tax Police, the upright champion of justice who, through misunderstandings, paradoxical situations and various lies, meets the beautiful Claudia and falls hopelessly in love with her but amidst ingenious deceptions, disguises and misunderstandings, the young art restorer’s scam will begin to melt like a frozen grandmother in the sun.
