In a small village in Umbria, the film director Gianni is in deep creative crisis. He lives like a bum, no longer an idea to create a movie when its problems if there is another bigger than all the others. His home water pipe broke, flooding as a precious fresco of the church in the country. Gianni has two choices: pay the damage or finance and direct a sacred representation of the Passion of Christ. Since we do not have the money to pay for the damage to the fresco ancient, Gianni agrees to regain the Italian public by directing the sacred representation.
