Despite being polyglot and a professional of undoubted calibermakes ends meet by performing three jobs: interior designer in a shop, architect and waitress in a restaurant. Here it meets Francesco (Raoul Bova)the owner, with whom a deep friendship is born.
A bitter comedy of misunderstandings
Serena’s daily routine turns out to be more and more tiring, but she doesn’t give up. She starts having some interviews, but punctually when it comes to signing the contract, she is asked to sign your resignation in blank. A ploy that allows the company to fire her without consequences in the event of maternity.
When all hope seems lost, the proposal arrives from an important studio of architects. To get the job, however, she is forced to pretend to be the assistant of the architect Bruno Serena. Then, he asks Francesco for help, who lends himself to carry on the staging.
