Paolo Coniglio is a naive and bumbling writer in a publishing house of comics, bullied by the director and by his future mother-in-law. To escape the dreary daily routine, he finds himself the protagonist of very vivid daydreams in the company of Dalia, the beautiful heroine of the comic books who is responsible of translating. His visions play with popular heroes of the literature and comics, like Parsifal, Superman and Tarzan. Every time his awakening is increasingly more abrupt, when one day, doing the grocery shopping, he meets a charming blonde girl identical to Dalia that, against his will, involves him in a shady intrigue.
