    • Synopsis
    • Gloria, a strong-willed woman and mother of two, wins 1 million Euro gambling at the casino.
      Her husband and children, being well aware of Gloria's weakness for gambling, persuade her to go to a psychologist, hoping to prevent her from spending the winnings.
      They decide to go to the renowned Fabio Macchiavelli who, in order to help the woman, tells her about an old patient of his: Alvise Fantin. He is a nobleman from Venice, unemployed and impoverished by gambling. He is a kind man with good manners, but when he's in front of a slot machine or inside a casino he loses touch with reality. Alvise tries to find the money he owes in the most creative, desperate and daring ways, more out of desire to "save face" than to pay his debts.
      However, one day he cheats the wrong person and, due also to his mom involvement, who does not approve of his ways, he will have to repay his entire debt by doing a humble and honest job.
      In this new condition, Alvise is clumsy, having to face absurd and hilarious situations.
      Will Alvise be able to get used to his new job and to overcome his weakness for gambling?
      What about the psychologist? Will he be able to help Gloria and her family?
