Luigi and Elsa are a sixty-year-old radical chic couple that live between work, respectively a psychiatrist and an architect, and social events that they rarely miss. A night like any other, Elsa comes home with a pair of ticket for a vanguard theatrical show to which Luigi doesn’t want to go because they’ve seen it yet and because he prefer to stay home and eat his lovely self cooked lamb. A discussion starts between Elsa and Luigi and they finally land to the thorny question about their son, always nicknamed Jimmy. Of whom they don’t remember the real name.
