After the death of his father, Achille becomes afflicted with dysphemia, but he is also gifted with great creative intelligence. In their attempts to solve the boy's problem, his family have him admitted to Villa Agorà, a clinic directed by Doctor Aglieri, the inventor of the "talk/sing" method, which consists in helping his patients to talk by teaching them to modulate their voices as if they were singing. Bringing a little happiness into the clinic is Remo, a speech therapist who is very interested in the Doctor/patient relationship. Life flows on in Villa Agorà, with its comic and often poetic situations, until the day of the field tests, which Doctor Aglieri considers to be the final demonstration that his method is valid. The patients will be taken to a shopping mall and left to themselves to demonstrate that they have overcome their communication problems.
