Mirko is back home after 8 years spent in jail. He wants a second chance, dreaming for a fresh start, leaving violence and crime behind once and for all. He aims to win back the love of his two daughters, to start over with his wife and finallyu do something good for himself. An unexpected opportunity arises when he's surprisingly elected President of a Social Association of his neighborhood, an almost forgotten area in the outskirt of Rome. He puts all his efforts in it: he manages to organize a soup kitchen and to offer a real job to the outlaws of the area by transforming an abandoned piece of land in a flourished tomato field. But once you've been criminal for so long, spreading so much grief and sorrow, it's incredibly hard to infect people around you with good and happiness.
