An evening class in beginner's Italian intertwines the lives of various people in modern-day Copenhagen. Andreas (Anders Berthelsen) is a young clergyman newly arrived in the city, who finds himself consistently undermined by Reverend Wredman, a man consumed with bitterness at his daughter's suicide. Olympia works at a bakery and cares thanklessly for her ailing and irritable father. Shy concierge Jorgen (Peter Gantzler) is in love with an Italian waitress named Giulia (Sara Indrio Jensen) but doesn't know how to approach her. The abrasive bar manager Hal-Finn, Giulia's boss, is sacked for being difficult with customers and is in the beginning stages of a relationship with a woman dominated by her alcoholic mother. Jorgen determines to learn Italian to be able to speak to Guilia in her native tongue, and drags the lonely Anders along. Finally, Karen (Ann Jorgensen), a hairdresser who is battling with a terminally alcoholic mother also attends, being rather taken with the hotheaded Hal-Finn (Lars Kaalund) who is now one of her customers. When the class teacher Marcello expires suddenly with a heart-attack the class is faced with termination. But Hal-Finn, who claims to have learned Italian when Juventus FC visited Copenhagen a few years back, volunteers to take over the class and events in Karen and Olympia's lives soon draw the class ever-closer in strange and unforeseen ways.
