Sandro, a single high school teacher in his forties, still lives with his parents. Together with his childhood friend they spend their leisure time dating women online. Everything changes when Sandro meets the married Manana who quickly conquers his heart. When her husband is released from jail early, Sandro’s predicament takes on absurd dimensions. He gets caught up in wild family disputes in which everyone meddles with everything but no one really listens.
