In this offbeat romantic drama, Francesco (Lothaire Bluteau), a cartoonist who draws an adults-only sex-and-adventure feature, finds his relatively quiet life in Messina turned upside down by the arrival of a film crew from England, who've moved into town to shoot a movie under the direction of an eccentric American filmmaker (L.M. Kit Carson). Yasmin (Laila Rouass), a beautiful actress from Pakistan, is starring in the film, and Francesco soon finds himself falling in love with her. Yasmin finds herself attracted to Francesco as well, much to the annoyance of her director. L.M. Kit Carson, who also served as executive producer on this film, is best known as a screenwriter, having worked on films as diverse as Paris, Texas and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2.
