A story about two people who, at the end of the road, discover that it's never too late to love or to dream.

Elsa is 82 years old and for the past 60 years, she's dreamt of a moment that Fellini had already envisaged: the scene in La Dolce Vita at the Fontana di Trevi. The same scene without Anita Ekberg in it, but Elsa instead. Without Marcello Mastroiani but with that love that took so long to arrive.

Alfredo is a bit younger than Elsa and was always a good man who did everything he was supposed to do. After losing his wife, he feels disturbed and confused and his daugher decides that it would be best if he moved into a smaller apartment where he'll meet Elsa.

From that moment on, everything changes. Elsa bursts into his life like a whirlwind, determined to teach him that the time he has left to live -- be it more or less -- is precious and that he should enjoy it as he pleases. Fred surrenders to Elsa's frenzy, to her youth, to her boldness, to her beautiful madness. And this is how Alfredo (or Fred, as Elsa calls him), learns how to live.
