"Benedetta madness", Verdone is the director and the protagonist of this new comedy in which he plays the role of William. Owner of a religious articles store, which is left by his wife after 25 years of marriage.

William, a man of mirrored virtue and immaculate Christian faithful, owner of a shop of religious and high fashion articles for bishops and cardinals. One of those that "a wife is forever".
If it were not for his Lydia, a devoted consort for 25 years, he decided to give it up on the day of their anniversary, upsetting his world and all his certainties. But then an unpredictable job candidate arrives in his shop: Luna.
