Elia (Toni Servillo, The Great Beauty) is a Jewish psychoanalyst from a purely Freudian school of thought. Due to his austere and detached manner, he is reputed for immediately generating awe in his patients. Elia lives alone in a flat on the same floor as his ex- wife Giovanna, with whom he is still secretly in love. When his doctor warns him that his weight is putting his health at risk, he enlists Claudia to help get him into shape. A single mother to an undisciplined child, Claudia could use some life coaching. Together, this mismatched pair makes strides in healing both body and soul.
