It is a meeting of actors that worked together some years ago. They meet in order to play again in a comedy with the aim to help Sardinia's fisher against the extinction of lobsters (aragosta in Italian) - and the subsequent strong reduction in fishers' income. In the past, the same political point of view was the strong glue in the group: now it is clear that the link between them is much deeper. That, despite different pieces of life, not told in the picture, but poetically represented in the different way of playing. In Italy people was told this would be a political film: on the contrary here the life is depicted and one can understand that politics can be a technique or a matter of life.
