Tommaso has two things in mind: women and work. After a discussion with his boss, he leaves the factory he works at in Bari’s industrial area. He seeks a radica return to nature. But his free wandering doesn’t last long when his wife leaves him, taking their children with her. Without work and without love, he falls into misery. A rare Italian film starring Alessandro Haber inspired by Tommaso Di Ciaula’s book Tuta blu.
