Set in the Eternal city of Rome, this comedy is actually an apotheosis of the Italian cinematographic art which glory is, sadly, fading away in the digital and high-tech 21st century. The story starts with a tragic event - a famous film producer is found dead in the Tiber river. The date is 3rd of July and the terrible accident happens on the day when Italy and Argentina play the football semi-finals for the 1990 FIFA World Cup. The police suspects that three young screenwriters are responsible for the producer’s death. They are detained at the police station and it is a an emotional night full of sentimental outpourings.
