Antonio, 30, is married and living happily, he thinks so anyway, until his life collapses one day when his husband informs him it’s over, he’s in love with someone else. Antonio, who gave up his job and became a cooking-loving housekeeper, realizes that he must start his life from the beginning. He needs to find a place to live, work, and a new meaning to life. He finds a room in a perfect bachelor's apartment with Denis the party boy, starts working in a bakery owned by Luca, the guy from the gym, he even starts studying at a confectionery school. The new chapter in his life teaches him that independence must not be given up for the sake of a relationship.
The Italian comedy “Mascarpone” will whet your appetite for both the Italian pastries that Antonio bakes during the film and for the hot and successful cast that participates in this film.
