Cédant à la pression de ses enfants, Luciano, marchand de poisson napolitain, auditionne pour participer à l'émission de téléréalité "Big Brother", qui connaît un succès phénoménal en Italie. La candidature de ce clown naturel plaît aux producteurs, qui l'invitent à Rome pour une deuxième audition, laquelle se déroule encore mieux que la première. Luciano retourne à Naples, où la confirmation de son embauche se fait attendre. Son épouse a beau tenter de lui faire comprendre que rien n'est gagné, il s'y voit déjà, et tout le voisinage aussi.

Lorsque la diffusion de "Big Brother" s'amorce à la télé, Luciano a déjà commencé à perdre contact avec la réalité. [(c) Médiafilm].
