Francesco Di Narnali is a world champion billiards Italian and American, with a particular talent for spectacular performances, in particular to be able to pit fifteen balls to the pool with a broom instead of a stick; hence the nickname "Mr. Quindicipalle".

One day, Francesco went to the cemetery by his father and, attempting to steal the flowers to the graves he meets a woman named Sissi, who turns out to be a prostitute.

After the movie "Occhio Pinocchio", which will be remebered in the movie history as the most expensive Italian film and for its low incomes as the biggest Italian flop, Francesco Nuti comes back with this movie. This is his third movie where Nuti talks of pool, and the plot has always the same structure: the shy man meets the woman of his life. Feelings like jealousy, are badly expressed, and the feeling to remember when the end comes is only one: boring.
