In 1920 Luigi Pirandello (Toni Servillo) is invited to Sicily for the occasion of the 80th birthday of his mentor, famous novelist and playwright Giovanni Verga. He meets various strange personalities and a mix of melancholy and distant memories sets the ground for creating his masterpiece, Six Characters in Search of an Author.
