In Rome, Gianni leads a lazy life, a glass of wine at hand; his only job is caring for his mother in their condo. The administrator pays Gianni a visit on a hot August day because he hasn't paid the condo fees in years; the association members want Gianni and his mother evicted. The visitor makes an offer: he wants to leave the city for ferragosto, a mid-August tradition, and asks to leave his mother in Gianni's care in exchange for writing off some of the debt. Gianni and his mother agree to do it, and the administrator brings his mom - and his aunt. Then, Gianni's doctor pays a call and asks the same favor. Can Gianni make the best of it, or are real surprises in store?
