Synopsis:

It was unlikely that Angelo and Alberto’s paths would ever cross. Angelo (Kim Rossi Stuart), a solid family man, is married with two kids and a third on the way. A thoughtful and generous man, he runs his own garage that provides a good life for his family. A very different personality, Alberto (Antonio Albanese) is a successful writer, but a loner; loudmouthed, clumsy and a little bit crazy.

They meet in the emergency room, befriending each other on the night as Angelo says, “their engines seized” – each suffering a heart attack. The heart attack makes Angelo rightly fear for his family’s future, while Alberto cannot commit to the woman he loves and suffers from writer’s block. But when Angelo and Alberto are together, they feel better and stronger.

Sinossi:

I cuori di Alberto e di Angelo ingrippano nella stessa notte. Diventano amici in sala rianimazione. Si legano in modo istantaneo, sorpresi loro stessi di capirsi così profondamente. Ma sono due maschi, e quindi paludano spesso le emozioni dietro lo scherno, lo scherzo. Come adolescenti al primo viaggio in tenda.

Appena fuori, la vita gli sembra talmente cambiata, che diventano indispensabili l'uno all'altro. Alberto, che è strutturalmente un uomo solo, non riesce a dare stabilità al suo rapporto con la fidanzata, e si installa a casa di Angelo, lì al Pigneto, sopra la carrozzeria specializzata in auto d'epoca dove lavora. Ma in quella casa c'è una famiglia, una moglie, Rossana, attraente di suo e in più incinta; e i due figli, Perla e Airton, una adolescente furiosa e un bambino impaurito dagli eventi.
