Ettore (Fabrizio Bentivoglio), a well-known writer, guru of the analogue and public enemy of the Internet, on the occasion of his birthday brings the whole family to his chalet in the mountains, and tries to finally create a bond between his two sons, Claudio (Eugenio Franceschini), an online poker player, and Giulio (Lorenzo Zurzolo), a nerd and introvert high school student, with his second wife, the beautiful, young and a little 'naive' Margherita (Carolina Crescentini), who is seven months pregnant. The group is joined by Achilles (Ricky Memphis), a half-brother of Margherita who has just been kicked out of his wife's house, and Tea (Giulia Elettra Gorietti), the young fiancée of Claudio and a devoted fan of Ettore. Once in
the chalet, they find Olga (Antonia Liskova), the very reliable Ukrainian nanny, with her daughter Stella (Benedetta Porcaroli), an adolescent, addicted to social networks. Unexpectedly, Palmiro turns up (Stefano Fresi), the bipolar brother of Margherita and Achille, who has escaped from his nursing home. When the group suddenly lose their internet connection, everyone panics ... and the consequences will be full of twists and turns. The secrets and the beliefs of the protagonists will soon be overturned, and the "disconnection" will have them face their insecurities, leaving them to have to reset and start again.
