Antonio lives in Berlin and has finally found the love of his life. He is planning a trip to Italy to introduce his better half to his mother Anna and father Roberto , who also happens to be the Mayor of Civita, a small yet lovely town in the province of Viterbo. The other half of the apple is Paolo, who can’t wait to meet his fiancé’s family. For the moment, Anna and Roberto are living their quiet life at home, unaware of what their son is up to.

The two lovebirds set out together on this journey full of revelations and surprises, joined by their off-beat and likable friend Benedetta and their new roommate Donato, who has recently been rejected by his family because of his penchant for cross-dressing.

Anna spontaneously accepts her son’s intentions to embark on a civil union with Paolo, insisting however that all the traditions are observed: Antonio’s future mother-in-law must be present at the wedding ceremony, the entire town must be invited to the celebration, and the two grooms will have to be officially married by her husband the mayor, complete with his tricolour sash.

Roberto is a Mayor who flaunts his open-minded politics of acceptance. Will he demonstrate the same tolerance with his own son? And Camilla , Antonio’s ex-girlfriend? How will she react to the news? Will Paolo’s mother, Vincenza , come to the wedding?

The night when everything changes, it's icy and foggy in Avechot, a town nestled in a deep valley in the shadow of the Alps. Maybe it's because of the fog that the special agent's cat has ended up in a ditch. Vogel is in a state of shock, and he doesn't remember why he is there or how he gets there. One thing for sure is that special agent Vogel should not be there. In fact, two months have gone by since a town girl disappeared into the fog since Vogel has been working on what, form a simple case of voluntary disappearance, has changed first into a kidnapping case, and from there, a case of colossal media interest. Because that's Vogel's specialty, media manipulation, attracting television cameras, conquering the form pages, obtaining funds for the investigation, thanks to the attention given and the pressure of the "audience at home", sanctifying the victim and, in the end, finding the monster. Because it takes someone like him, without scruples and self-confidence in his methods, to make sure a crime receives what it deserves: a solution as well as an audience. But Vogel should far away form those unwelcoming mountains. So why is he still there? Who does the blood on his clothes belong to?

In order to stand a chance with Mara, Gabriele is therefore forced to conceal the Sofia part of his life from her, which initially means clearing all traces of his daughter from his apartment whenever Mara comes round, down to erasing and recreating her blackboard scrawls, then to pretending that Sofia is his little sister, and then to all manner of amusing deceptions which, in the end, inevitably unravel.
