Guido thought he had an peaceful life, until, on a winter’s afternoon, an unexpected accident in bed sends his relationship with girlfriend Chiara into disarray. As they head to the pharmacy to buy the morning after pill, Guido suggests that she shouldn’t take it after all and Chiara has no choice but to confess her growing doubts about their relationship. This is the beginning of their crisis and Guido is forced to pack a bag and leave their flat – but where to now? Unable to be alone, he asks his parents and friends to put him up and so navigates the perilous waters of moving from one couch to the next, playing the unusual role of witness to their everyday lives and their various romantic entanglements.
