    Brief synopsis

    English:
    The story of Lazzaro, a peasant still shy of 20 and so good he appears stupid, and Tancredi, a young man of the same age but spoilt by his own imagination, is the story of a friendship. It’s a friendship that begins genuinely amid a flurry of secret schemes and lies. Full of light and youthful enthusiasm, it’s the first friendship Lazzaro has ever had. And it subsequently survives the passing of time and the disruptive consequences of a Big Swindle to bring the one, Lazzaro, to a huge, empty city in search of the other, Tancredi.
    (Swiss Films)

    Italiano:

    Quella di Lazzaro, un contadino che non ha ancora vent’anni ed è talmente buono da sembrare stupido, e Tancredi, giovane come lui, ma viziato dalla sua immaginazione, è la storia di un’amicizia. Un’amicizia che nasce vera, nel bel mezzo di trame segrete e bugie. Un’amicizia che, luminosa e giovane, è la prima, per Lazzaro. E attraverserà intatta il tempo che passa e le conseguenze dirompenti della fine di un Grande Inganno, portando Lazzaro nella città, enorme e vuota, alla ricerca di Tancredi.
