This road movie is the second feature spin-off from the popular Italian TV comedy series Never Say Goal. Three hardware store sales clerks (Aldo Baglio, Giovanni Storti, and Giacomo Poretti) travel from Milan to southern Puglia. Aldo and Giovanni are married to the daughters of their boss Eros (Carlo Croccolo), and Giacomo is on the brink of wedding the third. On the road, they carry Eros' pet dog and a valuable sculpture of a leg. Unfortunately, they accidentally kill the dog. After they pick up vacationing Chiara (Marina Massironi), Giacomo falls for her. There are more misadventures with the leg -- while Eros becomes furious over the delays. The film includes parody sequences satirizing vampire tales, gangster movies, and Italian neo-realism.
