A private detective investigates her sister's suicide 16 years earlier.
During a warm springy Sunday afternoon in a small town of South Italy, the opening of the polling place is disrupted by three Italian citizens and one Eritrean, who are unemployed, angry and armed. They threaten to occupy the school designed for the poll. They start to negotiate with the police, but eventually the four men are forced to leave.
They are the only two survivors of an plane crash; two more different people you couldn’t imagine; an Italian Frenchman who’s always rushing about, always angry and who’s made a lot of money in his life and left his ideals by the wayside, together with a Japanese cook, who’s calm, relaxed and an aesthete. They find themselves abandoned in a desolate land and without help and so they’re forced to live together and confront, but above all battle with hunger which brings them face to face with extreme situations. And it’s from this experience that their lives radically change, especially the man who was frenetic and angry.

Then the war reaches the farm when Italy surrenders and the Germans exact revenge.

L'ispettore Coliandro is a series of Italian tongue-in-cheek television movies directed by Marco Manetti and Antonio Manetti, and written by the crime writer Carlo Lucarelli and starring Giampaolo Morelli in the title role of the Inspector Coliandro. According to the actors and the directors, Coliandro is an Italian crime television series aimed "at young audiences." In fact this is probably so.
The policemen in Italian fiction and shows like Il commissario Montalbano are stalwart servants of the law, and usually save the day.
Inspector Coliandro saves the day also, but mostly by a combination "of luck and [his younger partner's] intuition." He is ignorant, crude, and despised by all his colleagues except this partner, who is the only one who view him the way he views himself: as a hero worthy of the good guys in American cop movies.
The humor of the series is manifest in the difference between the way Coliandro sees himself and the way the rest of the world sees him. Coliandro's very name is a play on the Italian word coglione - a word literally meaning "ball", but most usually used with the meaning of "asshole" - and he must continually correct its pronunciation.
