Sinopsi

Enea is a 29 year old man with the usual needs of a man his age. What is not so common is his way of expressing those needs. Enena is autistic and he announces his sexual desire with neon lights, often misinterpreting the reactions of the girls he approaches on the street. He needs to learn that the woman that will say yes will probably not be the woman of his dreams. As he’s never experienced sex before, his best friends Carlo and Alex decide to help him and they set out on a journey throughout Europe where they will find far more than what they were looking for.
