Handsome, young Pietro, a lonely soul, has just moved to Rome into a beautiful, crucially low-rent apartment. He soon notices objects have been moved and strange noises coming from empty rooms. It becomes clear that he is not alone. His initial reaction is to ignore the annoying residents, and then tries to get rid of them. Eventually, their forced cohabitation offers Pietro the chance to share his desires, fears and secrets, giving him the confidence he needs to face his new life. This is a comedy of ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“ghostly" proportions.
