Questa simpatica commedia d’autore, ambientata in un vecchio faro in disuso, racconta la storia di un gruppo di personaggi che hanno solo una cosa in comune: problemi disparati. È un bellissimo film corale che, con battute divertenti, scene misteriose e paesaggi naturali stupendi, ci mostra come qualche volta sia possibile risolvere anche i problemi più impensabili; basta avere un pizzico di immaginazione e molta volontà collettiva perché come dice Don Costantino, il protagonista, interpretato dallo stesso regista, Rocco Papaleo: “Vedrai che tutto s’aggiusta”.

*************************************************

“A Small Southern Enterprise” is a delightful comedy, written and directed by Rocco Papaleo who also stars in it. It is set in an old, abandoned light-house and is the story of a group of people who really only have one thing in common: their many disparate problems. With witty remarks, many surprises and lots of glorious, natural scenery, it shows us that even the most unimaginable problem can be tackled with a little imagination and some collective will, because as Father Costantino, the leading character, says: “Everything can be fixed”.
