This comedy was the last film produced by Carlo Mazzacurati before his death in 2014. Valerio Mastandrea and Isabella Ragonese star in this hilarious treasure hunt for happiness.
A broke beautician (Ragonese) is the recipient of the last words of a dying old lady, which implied the location of treasure, artfully hidden in an old chair in the lady's mansion. On her quest to find the treasure, the beautician discovers that all of the old lady's belongings have been confiscated and auctioned. The beautician seeks help from her neighbour, a tattoo artist who does everything he can to assist. The pair soon discover that there are eight identical chairs scattered around the region. The quest for the lucky chair takes the couple on a journey around Veneto, where they attempt to persuade the chairs' new owners that they don't need them.
