Attracted by the myth of adventure, a job on easy street, and sex at every corner, a nineteen-year-old bets the whole bundle of his young and confused existence on a study-trip to London. He gets there full of hope and with five-hundred-thousand liras in his pocket. His dreams, however, soon run up against unexpected reality: the rarity of sunshine, difficulty in human relations, London’s complex social reality and, moreover, the difficulty of finding a job when you don’t know a word of the language. Washed up on the shores of a downtown Mc Donald’s, he spends his time scouring burners and invests his meagre earnings in a school to learn English, while spending his free time in desperate search of a girlfriend. Despite the devotion to his purpose and a wide range of experiences with people, nothing seems to fall in the right place. One failure after the other leads him aimlessly northward where, in the solitude of the forests and castles of Scotland, he begins to sort out dreams and reality, and prepare his grand return. A tasty, close-up narration, unabashed and free of mannerisms that digs right into a sizeable chunk of modern-day life.
