Movie Synopsis:
The life of fisherman Mario changes dramatically when the famous Chilean writer, Pablo Neruda, settles on his little Italian island. Living in exile because of his political beliefs, Neruda needs a postman to deliver the huge quantities of mail sent to him by his admirers and Mario takes the job since he hates fishing anyway. The two become friends and Neruda helps the shy and clumsy Mario gain the courage to approach Beatrice, the beautiful waitress at the village’s inn, by showing him the beauty and power of poetry.
