Over fifty years old, Gianni Dubois has not made a film in years. Now he finally has the chance to direct a young TV star but he cannot come up with an idea for a story. And to further complicate things, a leak in his apartment in Tuscany has ruined the 16th-century fresco in the chapel next door. To avoid being sued and publicly shamed, Gianni agrees to direct Good Friday celebrations in exchange for immunity. He finds himself spending a week trying to put together a Stations of the Cross, with the apostles, Pontius Pilate, the crucifixion, and a terrible local actor playing the part of Christ.
