Of political life is only an opening sequence, before the titles of the head, is the closing speech of the fortyfifth congress of the party among the carnations, the first pages of the Next!, cheers of fellow party members and a vote "proportions Bulgarian". Between them is off Vincent , Giuseppe Cederna , ex-worker, a friend, a leader who wants to offer his resignation, which warns the president: "Every night they come into my office and rummage among the papers" but the President doesn't care. All the rest of the film will be set in Tunisia, the disease, and the close relationship with the daughter Anita ( Livia Rossi ), the most troubled relationship with the son ( Alberto Paradoxes ), judges who condemn, the tourists who cross over to the beach and the insult, the old friends that come to Hammamet to meet him, the old political rival ( Renato Carpentieri ), the lover ( Claudia Gerini ), and then a mysterious character, oniric, a boy, Fausto, who has a secret mission ( Luca Filippi ).
"There are people that put in motion a story, I was in need of an antagonist. For this I chose to insert this character of the son who reminds the child to Strike at the heart (the films of Amelio, 1983, ed), there was terrorism, here the judgments which have become res judicata, nodes to choose from, looking for a culprit, and there is someone who wants clarity. He was questioning the father and then the search for the man who started it all. The entrance scene of Fausto in the life of the President triggers the conflict, their is almost a duel".
