A comedy of errors about a talented young woman, Serena (Paola Cortellesi), fighting for her place in the sexist male-dominated profession of Italian architecture. In order to design the building of her dreams, Serena poses as her own assistant to fabricated architect Bruno Serena. For a while she is able to get her foot in the door and no one suspects a thing. She has her own desk and is able to participate in regular meetings. But as time passes, Serena’s boss starts to push for more contact with Bruno, and so Serena ropes in her best friend, Francesco, to pose as him and pretend to Skype from Japan. In dealing with sexism in the workplace in a way that resonates without preaching, director Riccardo Milani endears us so much to Serena, that there is no way to not empathise with her struggles, and by extension the struggles of women everywhere.
