    • Synopsis
    • Dino Fabrizzi is the number one salesman at Nice’s Maserati dealership. At age 42, he’s come to a crossroads in his life; he’s inches away from being promoted to general manager, and the girl he’s been dating for one year has every intention of marrying him.
      Life is beautiful for Dino. But this perfect life is built on a lie.
      Dino’s real name is Mourad Ben Saoud. Neither his boss nor his girlfriend – and even less so his parents – are aware of his false identity.
      In ten days, Ramadan will begin and Mourad, who usually skips it every year, will be forced to observe the religious rite to honor a promise made to his sick father: to observe Ramadan in his name…
      For Dino “The Italian,” this most certainly won’t be easy!
