Ermanno spends his days between slot machines and petty theft. Lena has come to Italy from Poland to sell her baby and begin a new life. Ermanno has to pretend to be the father of the baby so that he can entrust the newborn to his uncle Fabio. As Lena rejects her motherly desires, Ermanno starts to assume his role as the actual father of Sole, the baby girl. Unexpectedly, they will experience family life together and create an intense bond between them.
