On 3 July 1990, during the semi-final between Italy and Argentina at the 1990 FIFA World Cup, a film producer is found dead in the Tiber and three young aspiring screenwriters are the main suspects in the murder. During a night in the barracks, their sentimental and ironic journey is traced, describing the splendour and misery of a glorious period of the Italian cinema that is slowly fading away.



The film has been presented on 27 October 2018[5] at the Rome Film Festival[6] and came out in the Italian theatres on 8 November 2018.[3]
