Ernesto (Marco Giallini) and Filippo (Alessandro Gassmann) have two personalities antipodes and a single point in common: they are both secondary school teachers.

Filippo is a cheerful progressive perpetually connected to the web. Beautiful and carefree, he is a serial seducer on social networks. He can also seduce his students. Thanks to an app, created by him, which makes instant solution of any possible calculation. Ernesto is a strict conservative, strictly no computers,  traditionalist even with his students. It makes its austerity a point of honor and has a life completely outside the network. It is probably the last living holder of a Nokia '95.

Once they were "best friends" but a deep confrontation and ever solved kept them away. Until the day in which find themselves fatally to teach in the same class.

They will be forced to face the past, which will return in the guise of Nina, a girl who will submit them to a simple experiment that turns into a big challenge: Filippo will try to get out of the network and Ernesto to get into it. This trip will change them deeply, forcing them to find a balance, more and more rare and delicate today, between the global consciousness of those who rely on the network and the total indifference of those who stubbornly resist to the bitter end the digital age.
