Synopsis

In southwestern Sardinia, lobster fishing is no longer as abundant and profitable as it once was, and local fishermen struggle for their own sustenance. The actress and film producer Sabina Guzzanti comes to their rescue accompanied by the historic cast of the Avanzi variety. In the seaside village of Su Pallosu, the company writes a stage play in order to raise the public awareness on the subject. During the rehearsals of the play, memories, weaknesses, aspirations and failures of the cast members emerge, portraying a generation bruised by its own dreams and a declining society.
