Synopsis Mimmo Savarese, 50 years old, was the greatest sports commentator of his generation. Now that his career is in decline, he could make a comeback thanks to an unusual job offer, which hides the opportunity to avenge a dramatic wrong suffered as a child. He will succeed in retaliating against life with the talent he wields best: the exercise of words. With a cameo of the comedian Frank Matano.
Director’s bio-filmography Valerio Vestoso (Benevento, 1987) in 2009 wrote Erennio Decimo Lavativo, a theatrical comedy directed by Ugo Gregoretti, and then he landed on the world of cinema with the mockumentary Tacco 12, which was presented with over 40 awards.
