It seems like easy money: dogsitting an elderly rich lady's little French bulldog for the weekend. But this is where Marti and her friend Rana are mistaken. From day one they are being troubled by the stealing of the expensive dog and a wild pursuit emerges, in order to get him back. They decide to go after a veterinarian by the name Dr. Mopsi, that appears to be the thief. Who is this Dr Mopsi after all? Isn't everybody, including the pup, a victim of circumstance? The film shows an overlooked side of Rome, an excellent situational comedy with an implied tragic tone, stating, no matter whether you have too much or too little of it, money ruins people's lives.
