Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Filmmakers Gianluca Rossi and Daniele Giometto team for this pointed satire of Italian politics concerning a grieving widow who accidentally runs over a prominent politician while driving in a fierce thunderstorm. Matteo's wife Livia has just been killed by a piece of an airplane that fell from the sky. Consumed by grief, the newly widowed Matteo settles behind the wheel of his car to take a drive and clear his head. But the rain is falling rather hard today, and in the confusion of the storm Matteo runs over an unknown pedestrian. Could it be that the unfortunate victim of this fateful accident was actually newly elected politician Silvio Berlusconi? If so, Matteo's grief is about to get a whole lot worse.
