A young man named Alessandro begrudgingly accepts a job as a companion for Giorgio, an elderly poet with Alzheimer's. As they banter during their daily walks, they slowly piece together Giorgio's long-buried memories, revealing clues to a hidden treasure.
"Alessandro (Carpenzano), on the face of it, is like any number of an adolescent, working-class yob in Rome, dropped out of school and has no fixed job, he is thick as thieves with Riccardo (Bruni), Tommi (Propizio) and Leo (Vitiello), and covertly engages some hanky-panky with Riccardo's mother Claudia (Finocchiaro). But his lounging days are going to change when he reluctantly accepts the odd job as a walking companion of the 85-year-old poet Giorgio (Montaldo), who is afflicted with Alzheimer's, but sane and ambulatory enough to be a beacon figure to set Alessandro onto the right track, especially by his writings etched on the walls of his study, it may or may not conceal the clues of a hidden treasure, that is what Alessandro and his co. determines to find out."
