During the last week of June 2009, 16 year-old Andrea decides to skip the summer camp while his parents are on vacation. The boy's plan is clear: he schemes to be alone with Eva, a beautiful girl who wants to make love for the first time, and with him! His plan is hampered by his younger brother Tommaso, a smart and introverted kid whose idol is Michael Jackson, and Cesare, an old man who pretends to be their grandfather. Ready for a hilarious adventure on the road?
