About the film: Il Padre d' Italia

Isabella Ragonese (Mia) and Luca Marinelli (Paolo) star in a subtle and introspective on-the-road movie in the respective roles of a pregnant back-up singer who doesn't want children and a gay man who dreams of becoming a father. Both young and both self-doubting in front of life's responsibilities, they set off on a geographical and emotional journey, from the North to the South of Italy, in a relationship that will unearth their vital drive to exist.
