    • Synopsis
    • Tommaso is the youngest child in the large, eccentric Cantone family
      who own a pasta factory in Puglia: his mother Stefania is loving but
      suffocated by bourgeois conventions; his father Vincenzo has
      unrealistically high expectations of his children; his aunt Luciana is an
      eccentric; his sister Elena a frustrated housewife; his brother Antonio
      works with their father at the pasta factory; and then there is his
      rebellious grandmother, trapped in the memory of an impossible love.
      Tommaso, an aspiring writer, has come home from Rome for an
      important family dinner at which his father will hand over the
      management of the pasta factory to him and his brother. Determined to
      assert his own personal choices, Tommaso plans to announce at the
      dinner that he is gay. But that evening, just as he begins to say “silence
      please”, he is upstaged by his brother who, to Tommaso’s surprise, and
      everyone else’s shock, reveals his own secret! Vincenzo orders Antonio of
      the house, kicking him out of the family and the factory. He then
      collapses from a heart attack and the family is overwrought.
      Tommaso reluctantly steps in to run the factory but his heart isn’t it. He
      misses his friends and his life in Rome, but how can he come out now
      and risk damaging his father’s health further? A surprise visit from his
      friends forces the family secrets to the surface with other surprise
      revelations in this warm, generous and moving comedy.
