The Dew Point

Il punto di rugiada

Carlo 25 years of age and given to excess, is the prince of cocaine-fuelled parties. One night, upon leaving a club drunk, he crashes into a car coming from the other direction, severely injuring the driver. At trial, he is sentenced to one year of community service at a nursing home: Villa Bianca. Thus begins the account of an entire season spent inside the nursing home. There, along with Manuel, a small-time, big- talking drug dealer, and thanks to the home’s residents (and to Dino in particular: eighty years old, cultured and sarcastic, embittered by life to the point of having attempted suicide on several occasions), Carlo will change his outlook on the world and on life itself.
