Dark humor and drama figure prominently in this comedy about two brothers and their attempts to keep their comatose mother (Emilia Della Rocca) alive. Cris (Luciano Manzalini) is a successful, portly businessman who likes chasing women while his rail-thin brother Ivano (Eraldo Turra) likes to drink and tries to stop trucks by raising an iron bar in road. With help from a device invented by Professor Perrier (Felice Farina), the brothers try to keep their mother alive in the basement. The Laurel and Hardy-like duo are known as the Rugerri Twins in their native Italy.
