Titta di Girolamo apparently has a regular and tedious life with nothing extravagant apart from his own name, as he tends to say. He's been living in a hotel in the Swiss city of Lugano for eight years, spending his days waiting for some kind of change in his boring life. His existence is too rigid and detached, full of loneliness and repetitive routine. Titta ignores everyone and probably has no emotions at all. But one day he decides to break all his personal rules and starts exchanging some words with Sofia, the barmaid at the hotel. His situation suddenly changes, with emotions, love, mafia and death come back violently into Titta's life.
