Orlando is a solitary man, lazy and on his way to give up. He lives day-to- day on the banks of the Po river, until the 2012 earthquake forces him to takehis life back into his own hands, to take care of his niece, to deal with an old love and, above all, to bring his old band back. He ends up rediscovering the beauty of doing things together. A story told amid the dance halls known as “balere,” poplar forests, and life along the shores of the great river which, with its undulating banks, assembles, pulls apart, and brings with it the wisdom of a culture that, despite its modernity, never forgets its identity. A colourful and light-hearted comedy, brought alive by music, landscapes, love, and a desire to get back n the game.
