    • Synopsis
    • Paolo Bressan spends his days at Gustino’s, who runs a tavern in a small village close to Gorizia. A 40 year old misfit, cynical and misanthropic, a true drinking professional and a compulsive liar, who reluctantly works at a retirement home cafeteria and is still unsuccessfully going after the dream of winning back his ex-wife Stefania.
      But things are about to change when Zoran shows up: a 15 year old kid with big glasses, whom Paolo “inherits” from a distant Slovenian relative, who speaks in a weird way and seems a little bit retarded.
      He finds himself being an uncle, and that to him is just sickening. Only when he notices that his nephew Zoran is a true phenomenon at playing darts, he changes his mind.
      Every year the world darts championship grants a top prize of 60 thousand euros and Paolo has no intention of letting this opportunity go by. Thanks to Zoran, he starts thinking that this could finally be his chance of hitting his
      life’s bull’s eye…
      Is he going to make it? One thing is undisputable: Paolo has emerged from a state of hibernation that lasted since forever and has started chasing his own personal redemption. But, before winning any darts game, will the unreliable Paolo, the intolerable Paolo, the alcoholic Paolo be able to defeat himself?
