Questa divertente commedia è una sorta di “Full Monty” all’italiana. Racconta la storia di quattro uomini qualunque che si inventano un’insolita alternativa ad un futuro privo di prospettive. Il protagonista è un trentenne precario di nome Bruno che un giorno scopre per caso lo sport del curling e con un pizzico di incoscienza, ma convinto delle proprie potenzialità, decide di formare una squadra e partecipare alle Olimpiadi Invernali.

Così, dopo mesi di allenamenti grossolani e molti contrattempi, i quattro uomini finalmente arrivano a Torino …
