This is the story of one day in the life of two brothers, Antonio and Marco, who have not seen each other for a long time. In fact, Antonio has just gotten out of jail. This day is the birthday of Marco, the younger brother, and they decide to celebrate it together by going on a little trip joined by Niki, Antonio's girlfriend. However, all of a sudden and against his will, Marco gets involved in an "incident" that allows him to discover the more brutal and pitiless side of his brother. The two seem to be separated by an unreachable distance. When they return to the city, they have a last try at reconciliation. There is a new appointment for that evening, which, however, holds something dramatic and unforeseen in store.
