Italy in the 1960s. One day Romano and Rosa, the parents of the two young brothers Gigi and Giancarlo, decide to leave their sun-drenched home in Apulia and move to Germany. In the gray industrial rust-belt they soon open the first pizza parlor of the neighborhood, adding a little spice to the local restaurant scene.
While Romano is soon completely wrapped up in his role as restaurant owner, his wife Rosa, even after many years, continues to suffer from incurable homesickness.
And Gigi and Giancarlo? The two brothers make their own experience with their newfound freedom, with music, and with their first joint. But they will become rivals in their quest for love and success – and each of them wants to be the first to answer the big question: What is really important in life?
