Everybody dreams about cinema. Three Italian friends, from a tiny town in Calabria, decide to start shooting a movie about their native place. Only two roles are missing: the director and the main character. For the first role, they find a director who’s been there on holidays for 4 years. However, for the second role, they don’t have much choice, so they decide to go to Rome to find the perfect actor. After a thorough search, they find a French guy: Gerard Depardieu. To celebrate his participation, they decide to organise, a very big party, involving all the town’s inhabitants: a real “abbuffata”. Unfortunately, an unexpected event does not let them realize their dream.
