Two Italians go to Albania to set up a phony corporation so they can scam foreign aid money from their government. One of them, Gino, gets more than he bargained for when he must babysit the old man who is to be the figurehead for their operation. They get caught up in civil unrest and suddenly, Gino finds himself on the same level as the poor people he once looked down on. The title refers to the idea that Italy is to the Albanians what America once was to Italians.
