Once there, he discovers the art of arrangiarsi, the process of arranging yourself to make something from nothing. We meet a colorful crew of characters, from street artists to pizza makers, who find a way to live and love in the most joyful ways, regardless of circumstance.
This delightful film combines a healthy smattering of foodie passion, Italian history, and quirky Neapolitans to tell the tale of one man’s journey to find himself...and the greatest pizza on earth.
