Alex, Oreste, Giacinto and Fanny are the four adult sons of Sergio, a very beloved father who five years ago has entered a coma and seems destined not to ever wake up again. Alex is a good for nothing womanizer who runs a sports club; Oreste is a frustrated classical musician reduced to directing concerts of young boys with little talent; Giacinto is a hard, unforgiving, businessman who never smiles; and Fanny, a conflicted former wife abandoned by her husband who preferred a much younger woman to her. When Alex finds himself in financial difficulties and the survival of his sport club is in danger, the other brothers decide to help him by selling the beautiful family villa in the countryside where the four brothers have grown up and get rid of all its contents. To buy the property will be Zaffarano, the greasy former playmate of the four brothers with a ten-year crush for Fanny and the secret desire to belong to that lucky and happy family that has always looked at him with ill-concealed contempt. This is why Zaffarano bought the villa and has absolutely no intention to give it back to them when Sergio miraculously awakens from his coma the day after the signature by the notary and the sale of his home. The doctors strongly advise the brothers to avoiding any upheavals and reintroducing the parent into a welcoming and familiar environment. Thus began for the four brothers the hunt for old furniture, family heirlooms and even the beloved dog. The play and a complicated collection of good lies also begin.
