Is it acceptable to swindle the state when the state swindles you? This is the doubt that grips Claudia (Miriam Leone, At War for Love CIF18) a young art restorer who manages to make ends meet thanks to her Nonna/Grandma’s pension.

When her Nonna suddenly passes away, bankruptcy seems to be looming, so Claudia, with the complicity of her staff, “freezes” her grandma so she can continue to collect her pension. Just when the solution to Claudia’s problems seems finally close, Simone Recchia, the most incorruptible and clumsiest office in the Tax Police turns up. Amidst ingenious deceptions, disguises and misunderstandings, the young art restorer’s scam will begin to melt like a frozen grandmother in the sun.
