Vincenzo Salemme wrote, directed, and stars in this romantic comedy about an unusual agreement among friends. Salemme plays Roberto, a doctor with a roving eye for women, but he's always had a soft spot in his heart for a beautiful Swedish women named Frida (Eva Herzigova). Frida, however, is uncooperatively married to his best friend, Michele (Carlo Buccirosso). Roberto is diagnosed with a serious heart condition and instructed to travel to the United States for major surgery from which he is not likely to recover. Before Roberto leaves, he asks Michele for one final favor -- permission to make love to his wife, just once. Leading lady Herzigova is best known as a successful model who was the original poster girl for Wonderbra.
