Noted Italian filmmaker Leonardo Pieraccioni follows up on his cowboy epic My West (1998) with this good-natured fable about the fleeting and shallow nature of fame. Pure-hearted carpenter and amateur novelist Arturo (Pieraccioni) stumbles into fame after his collection of children's stories, entitled "The Fish in Love" finds its way onto the lap of a bigwig publisher (Patrizia Loreti). The book is a phenomenal international success, and soon Arturo is swept up in one launch party after another. Eventually, Arturo tires of the high life and decides to spend the night in the relative quiet of his hotel room. A hotel snafu has him sharing a suite with the drop-dead gorgeous Matilde (Yamilia Diaz), and Arturo finds himself in an unexpected romance. The next day, when he learns that his love is in fact married, he retires from the high-rolling lifestyle to live and work in a tranquil mountain retreat. Several months later, Matilde suddenly appears on his door step with a baby in tow.
