Plot

PlotCanada British English Canadian Flag icon

Gegè, a fading pop singer, is invited to a tour in Uruguay, where thirty years before he had performed obtaining an astounding success.tale_of_tales

Not having enough money for the flight, he boards a ship and meets Ruggero, a loner cook who hasn’t touched ground for the last four years.

The two feel an immediate dislike for each other and, as an act of spite, Ruggero locks Gegè in the refrigerator.

Due to this occurrence, Gegè’s voice suddenly fades and he is diagnosed with a block of his vocal chords. Feeling responsible, Ruggero pretends to be the singer himself.

From then on, the destinies and the lives of these strangers, united by the same desire for redemption, will intertwine in surprising ways.

 

 

 

Trama

Gegè, cantante in crisi economica e di popolarità, riceve un invito per ritornare in Uruguay, dove trenta anni prima si era esibito con successo.

Non avendo denaro sufficiente per il volo aereo, si imbarca come passeggero su una nave, dove incontra Ruggero, cuoco solitario che non scende a terra da quattro anni.

Da subito scatta una istintiva antipatia: per dispetto Ruggero chiude Gegè nella cella frigorifera. Questo incidente causa a Gegè un improvviso abbassamento della voce.

A Montevideo, Gegè viene visitato e la prima diagnosi accerta un blocco delle corde vocali. Sentendosi responsabile, Ruggero finge con l’organizzazione di essere lui il cantante.

Da questo momento, i destini e le vite dei due uomini, accomunati dallo stesso desiderio di rinascita, si intrecceranno.
