Matteo is a twenty-year-old who is impulsive and very little committed to his studies. He and Margherita fall in love. She is a young, strong Slavic woman who is older than him and who has already taken her place in the world of work. However, Matteo's insecurity ruins this potentially very beautiful love story. His jealousy transforms itself into a morbid obsession. Things are getting worse and worse at school too. Is everything sliding down towards a tragic epilogue?

"Ecco fatto tells the story of the invisible line that separates a judicious relationship of a couple from that which is unhealthy, unreasonable, and immature" (G. Muccino).
