This Italian comedy opens by detailing the listless lives of a quartet of angry punks, all named Antonio, who live in the rural coastal town of Pescara in 1990. The focus changes, however, when one of them manages to go to Bologna to study at the local university. Books and college girls seem beyond him, so he drifts about the seedier corners of Amsterdam. A second Antonio joins him and the events of the Gulf War help to reshape the second Antonio's views, and he becomes both a conscientious objector and a protest leader.
