Rome, October 20th, 1959, Giuseppe Amato, a great producer of many Neorealism masterpieces, is alone in a small screening room. On the screen, what will become the most famous film by Federico Fellini, that no one wanted to produce. The rough cut is more than four hours long, and Fellini doesn’t want any cut, Rizzoli, the distributor, doesn’t want to release it. This will become the more challenging experience of Amato’s career and life.
