Storyline

Alex, Ivo and Pacifico three Sicilian twin brothers are reunited for their father's funeral. Alex is the only one who has never left home, a no gooder photographer, fat and happy to be tended by his several female relatives. Ivo emigrated to the North of the country a few years back, has become a hard man, an industrialist who breeds ferocious dogs to have his workers bitten. Pacifico is the best of this odd trio : he is a meek high school teacher who still knows how to take pleasure from the little things in life. Written by Salvatore Santangelo <pappagone2@libero.it>
