Io Sono Tempesta

(I Am Tempesta)

October 24, 2018

Showtime: 7:00 PM at The Little

Synopsis

Numa Tempesta, a financier who manages a fund totaling one and a half billion Euros, lives alone in his enormous, deserted hotel, full of beds on which he spends sleepless nights. Tempesta has money, charisma, a good nose for business, and very few scruples. One day, the law catches up with him: because of an old tax evasion conviction, he has to do one year of social service at a center for the disadvantaged. Thus, powerful Numa is obliged to put himself at the disposal of those who have nothing, the people on the bottom. One of them is Bruno (Elio Germano), a young father who has gone bankrupt and frequents the center with his son.

Their encounter seems to offer each of them an opportunity for redemption, in the name of positive feelings and friendship. But money is involved, as well as a group of homeless people who, if they have to choose between morals and money, tend to go for the money.

As in classic Daniele Luchetti films, it all comes down to this: who are the good guys, assuming there are any?
