That same morning the judge is found dead with a gunshot wound to the head.Written by Zaccariello together with the actor, comedian and songwriter Paolo Rossi (who he has already worked with on See You Tomorrow), the film also stars Barbara Ronchi, Vincenzo De Michele, Caterina Shulha, Sarah Felberbaum and Silvia D'Amico.
