Artemio, a poor farmer grown up in countryside, leaves for the first time the village (he managed to avoid the military service). He's 40 years old and he wants to witness how is the big city life. Anyway it's not easy for him to deal with the rat race. There are three gags that deserve to be mentioned: the one in which he met with his cousin Severino (the fart man), when he's involved in a spot related to washing powder well-known in advertising at that time and the TAC gag in the tiny little kitchen.

Pozzetto at its best help enjoying this comic B movie
