SYNOPSIS

Roberto Bussenghi is a frontier worker like many others: every day he crosses customs to go to work. And he never manages to be on time due to the excessive zeal of the Swiss border guard Loris J. Bernasconi. But fate has an even more ironic fate in store for these two enemies: they will find themselves having to coexist 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Condemned to a life together, as well as teasing about the differences between Swiss and Italians, they begin to understand each other and help each other until they realize they need the other to fix their problems and get out of the trouble they have gotten into.
