It is summer in Casale Monferrato, a commune in northern Italy. Luigi, 25 years old, has just failed his law exam at the University of Turin. He gets a tattoo and acts in a film, but nothing seems to appease him. Only walking with his dog Scarlett and driving in his car singing and rapping offer him comfort. Between rage and tenderness, and at the dawn of having to make choices for his adult life, Luigi offers a portrait of youth in present-day Italy.
