ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
La vita di Andrea Scotto è tutto fuorché perfetta, specie quando c'è di mezzo la famiglia. Fotografo quarantenne, single e ostinatamente immaturo, Andrea ha sempre preferito tenersi alla larga dai parenti: dal padre Libero, comandante di navi a riposo, procidano, trasferitosi a Napoli con i figli dopo la morte della moglie, e dalla sorella Marina, sposata, con due bambine e un evidente problema di ansia da controllo. Quando però Marina è costretta a partire e a lasciare il padre gravemente malato, tocca ad Andrea prendere il timone. È l'inizio di un fine settimana rocambolesco, in cui il divieto di mangiare dolci e fritti imposto da Marina è solo uno dei molti che vengono infranti. Tallonato da Cane pazzo Tannen, un bassotto terribile che ringhia anche quando dorme, costretto a stare dietro a un padre che si rifiuta di farsi trattare da infermo e che continua a sorprenderlo con richieste imprevedibili, Andrea sbarca a Procida e ritorna dopo anni tra le persone e i luoghi dell'infanzia, sulla spiaggia nera che ha fatto da sfondo alle sue prime gioie e delusioni d'amore e tra le case colorate della Corricella scrostate dalla salsedine. E proprio in mezzo a quei contrasti, in quell'imperfetta perfezione che riporta a galla ferite non rimarginate ma anche ricordi di infinita dolcezza, cullato dalla brezza che profuma di limoni, capperi e ginestre e dal brontolio familiare della vecchia Dyane della madre, Andrea trova finalmente il suo equilibrio.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
Andrea Scotto's life is anything but perfect, especially when the family is involved. Forty-year-old photographer, single and stubbornly immature, Andrea has always preferred to stay away from relatives: from his father Libero, commander of ships at rest from Procida, who moved to Naples with his children after the death of his wife, and his sister Marina, with two little girls and an obvious problem of control anxiety. But when Marina is forced to depart and leave her father seriously ill, it's up to Andrea to take the helm. It is the beginning of a daring weekend, in which the ban of eating sweets and fried foods imposed by Marina is only one of the many that are broken. Heeled by a mad dog Tannen, a terrible dachshund that growls even when he sleeps, forced to stand behind a father who refuses to be treated as a sick person and who continues to surprise him with unpredictable demands, Andrea arrives in Procida and returns years later to the people and the places of childhood, on the black beach that has been the backdrop to his first joys and disappointments of love and among the colorful houses of Corricella peeled from the salt. And right in the midst of those contrasts, in that imperfect perfection that brings to the surface unhealed wounds but also memories of infinite sweetness, lulled by the breeze that smells of lemons, capers and brooms and by the familiar rumble of the old Dyane of her mother, Andrea finds finally his balance.
