The phases of a lasting 50-yearfriendship that began in college are reminisced during a real time preparation of risotto.
Remembering the past and the near future, they talk about barbershops and dentists, marriage and separation, politics and their psychologists, news and ideologies.
Meanwhile, the risotto is being prepared and eventually becomes a symbol of their identities. Mixed with memories, the live description of the art of cooking the risotto every evening is added and upgraded with new ingredients.
At the end, a dramatic turn of events, a real“coup de theatre” becomes a refusal and a separation, but the risotto remains in its own reality as an exquisite plate with a wonderful taste to be shared with the audience.
