At the port of Vasto, Abruzzo city, the "Carair" car tire factory is about to close, for fraudulent bankruptcy. The factory workers are Tonino, Salvatore and Mario, who struggle with all their strength to prevent layoffs. Tonino does not know that he has a tumor since he has been exposed for many years by the tires of the wheel covers, and he thinks he is happy to live with Nina, a girl who lives in Milan, with whom she runs the weekend in the Abruzzo mountains, looking for the rare bear of Marsica. The workers' protest attracts political opinion, so Tonino, Marco and Salvatore get a meeting in Brussels and then in America, where the Carair multinational is located, getting to work. But right now, Tonino's tumor gets worse...
