On Christmas' Eve, uncle Greg and uncle Lillo are suddenly forced to take care of 8 year old nephew. His parents were mistakenly arrested for cultivation of drugs. The two uncles are very different, and inadequate to the task. Greg, single rocker, seek the help of Genny (Ambra Angiolini). Lillo, just left by his wife (Paola Minaccioni) and jealous of her new boyfriend, a forced tattoo artist (Paolo Calabresi), take advantage of the situation to win her back. To complicate matters, the surprise visits of two bizarre but zealous social workers (Francesco Montanari and Riccardo De Filippis) to the "strange family" to verify its suitability.
