    • Synopsis
    • Nicola, 40, is the owner of a factory he inherited from his father, on the brink of bankruptcy. Nicola is throttled by debts and banks, in Turin, a city plunged in the great economic crisis suffocating the whole Italy. But he is proud and tenacious. He decides to solve his problems with no scruples, exactly like the finance companies trying to knock him out.
      His wife Laura is getting farther and farther. He’s losing her, he realised that, but he does nothing to approach her again.
      Besieged by the workers pressing him to know their future, and waiting to establish a joint venture with a German company, Nicola feels something spoiling the only certainty left: his marriage. However, instead of speaking frankly to Laura, he starts suspecting her. And he follows her in secret.
      Everything collapses. The German refuse the agreement and Laura declares her will to separate. Nicola starts floundering and takes out the worst of him.
      Then the wheel of fortune turns. Everything seems to go back to its place: the firm, his marriage, and social success.
      But Nicola is keeping more than one secret...
