The film recounts the encounter of Fellini and Scola in the newsroom of the satirical paper "Marc'Aurelio", their friendships with Ruggero Maccari, Ennio Flaiano, Alberto Sordi and Marcello Mastroianni, the mutual visits their sets in the mythical Theatre 5 of Cinecittà Studios and other shared experiences that cemented their enduring friendship.

A brief film, perhaps a little cubist, made out of moments, fragments, and scattered impressions in an alternation of scripted scenes, reconstructed and shot in Cinecittà and archive material made available by Istituto Luce and RAI.
