Mariano and Miranda are a married couple in a small Tuscan town. They work hard at their vegetable stand. As we get to know them, there is an amateur production of "Grease" being staged. As players, these aspiring thespians do not stand a chance to make a living in the theater. The saving grace is their circle of loyal friends who are also merchants in the square where they sell their wares.
One day, Andrea, a photographer, wanders into the square and spots the gorgeous Miranda. He takes pictures without her knowledge. He has a wonderful idea, how about asking Miranda to pose for what he thinks will make one of those theme calendars in which she will appear surrounded by fruits and vegetables of the season. Andrea sells the idea to his publisher and Miranda suddenly becomes an object of desire, when she decides to pose for the pictures, with Mariano's skeptical approval.
Leonardo Pieraccioni, an actor who directs his own projects, works in comedies that are targeted for audiences wanting to have a pleasant time at the movies. He stars in all of his movies always playing the Tuscan everyday man. This film is good for a few laughs as everything is done with an eye to pleasing as well as entertaining. Laura Torrisi is Miranda and Gabriel Garko is seen as Andrea.
