The protagonist is Leone (Sergio Castellitto), a man aged 50 who is powerful, rich and mysterious, but also completely alone. So alone that he hires a company of actors to play the family he’s never had. The performance is staged on Christmas Eve, but what was supposed to be the most magical and traditional celebration of the year turns out to be a real nightmare for anyone within range of Leone’s eccentricity and cynicism.
