Three friends – Aldo, Giovanni, and Giacomo – have to travel from Milan to Gallipoli, in Apulia, for Giacomo's wedding. The bride's father, who is Aldo and Giovanni's employer and father-in-law as well, is a rich and vulgar businessman who doesn't like his sons-in-law and has given them the task of bringing him a wooden leg, the work of a famous artist who's about to die and will soon become of great value. The three men set off on their journey and soon meet Marina, a young woman on her way to Greece. Her car breaks down and Aldo, Giovanni and Giacomo will try to help her, which will lead to the blossoming of a beautiful friendship and a deep connection between Giacomo and Marina that will make him and his friends question the whole point of their journey.
