Synopsis: Guido is shy, reserved and well-educated. Antonia is restless, touchy and proudly ignorant. He works nights for a hotel and loves ancient languages and saints; she is an aspiring singer and works during the day for a car rental company. He wants to get married, she doesn't. But they both want at least one child. They see each other only in the early mornings when Guido returns home from work, wakes her up with breakfast and then they make love — every blessed day. But in spite of all these amorous activities, not a blessed thing happens. What to do?
