A director and his assistant are traveling around Europe to seek financing for a film with and about four international artists: Polish Krzysztof Bednarski, Danish Thorsten Kirchhoff, American Mark Kostabi and Malaysian H.H. Lim; all of them stars from the world of art and in love with Italy.
We will see them in extraordinary moments of their Italian experience: Bednarski’s offer from a Neapolitan gangster’s widow; Kirchhoff’s adventurous drive to save his art installation; Kostabi’s pilgrimage to the burned down site of the Napoli’s Science City - a few steps from Sophia Loren’s native home; Lim’s obsession with a beautiful woman spotted in the crowd of a Roman café and her wanderings into the city outskirts…
Contemporary art confronts with comedy and combine to reveal its nature of a happy carnival made of improvisation and open-mindedness. Hilarious and quirky, the film is a refreshing piece of comedia del arte contemporary style
