Synopsis:
Divorce has plunged Domenico,
Ulisse and Fulvio into serious economic
problems. The three men meet for the first time
when, looking for a place to stay, they converge
on a flat that none of them can afford on a
single budget. The instant proposal of sharing
space and expenses brings them together
under the same roof. But each of them has
ex-wives, young or grown-up children and
capricious new partners. Instead of solving
the housing aspect, they end up multiplying
their contentious interactions involving alimony,
child support and relationships three-fold.
This tragicomic and unusual
ménage à trois
will have a disastrous, if amusing, outcome.
