The plot in this movie has probably already been developed elsewhere but the way it's delivered is original. Filippo is a selfish and arrogant TV journalist who goes to the Canary islands to shoot a documentary about storks. At first everything seems to be normal but the day after he realizes that he's still living the day before. Plus he can't leave the small and lovely island he's on because every day the sea is in storm. So every day Filippo is living the 13th of August, always having the same situations and dealing with the same people. However, knowing in advance how people will act and what kind of situations he'll go through, he manages to get a kick out of his experience by doing crazy stuff among which being arrested and committing suicide. Besides the comic side of the story, there is the serious one in which Filippo every (same) day that passes learns to be a better man and be helpful to his friends and to the local community.
