Rino is fat, ambitionless and a 34-year-old virgin. He is also obsessed with sex. Living in a flat owned by his father, he lacks the necessary social skills and charm to reverse his pathetic situation.
Filled with self-loathing, Rino is resigned to a life of loneliness and cheese- burgers, until fate steps in to turn his life upside down. When his father decides to let out one of the rooms in his apartment to a beautiful young woman named Maria, Rino is flung back into the human stratosphere. What follows is the development of a relationship between Rino and Maria that is complex, rewarding and brutally human; a relationship that forces Rino to live again.
