Synopsis
Antonio is a driver, a science-fiction buff with an imaginary alter ego called Morgan. Maria has run up debts to buy a frozen-food store and is worried she will lose her daughter Lisa, whose paternal grandparents have gone to court to obtain foster care. Antonio falls in love with Maria and tries to help her solve her problems. When he discovers she has to pay Saverio huge repayment installments, Antonio offers his work in exchange to cancel the debt. Saverio tries to tell the boy the way things are, not what they should be: his idea of the world contrasts totally with Antonio's, who is however obliged to do the work he is given. He does it for Maria without her knowing.
