He lives his first day of freedom after a period spent in the community, proves to be an eccentric person, but also inconsistent and unable to cope with life. They are two completely different people who have nothing in common except the fact of living in a city like Bari, the former because it is perpetually engaged to a place, the second because the community was in a farm in the countryside.

Both end up being easy prey for the local boss, a shady guy who calls himself Matera, which obliges them to spy a pizzeria located in Bari Old, just in front of the Basilica of San Nicola and named in honor of the saint , SAN NICOLA ORIENT EXPRESS, pizzeria run by Turks and that will force the sequence of events, Antonio to yield to Said, the manager of the pizzeria, known as bisexual.
