A college graduate looks for work in this low-budget but dead-on Italian comedy. Sergio is proud of his shiny new degree in agronomy and is anxious to put it -- and his theories on growing crops in arid areas -- to good use. To this end, he purchases a copy of "The Practical Guide to Finding Work," an extremely upbeat guide (passages are narrated during the action) that tells him how to pen a resumé, gives him interviewing techniques, and offers many other useful tips. The book works, and Sergio finds himself in line for a plum job in Africa. Unfortunately, before he can go, he must surmount a few obstacles, including his ex-girlfriend Rita and his womanizing, lazy roommate Enzo.
