A film by Matteo Oleotto



Paolo, passes his days dragging himself between drinking sessions in the local bar with his friends, an unsatisfying job and an unsuccessful dream of winning back his ex-wife.
One day, he comes across his nephew Zoran, a curious boy of fifteen, born and raised in the mountains along with an aunt that Paolo did not know to have. After her death, Paolo is the only person who can take care of the boy. One day, he discovers that Zoran has a bizarre and unexpected gift: he is a real champion in playing darts. This is an opportunity for Paolo to take a revenge against the world.
But things do not always develop as we would like them to.
