Elia Venezia is a psychoanalyst who also treats her patients through hypnosis. His laziness touches Oblomov's languor, his stinginess not only deals with money but also vital energies, which he maintains as if they were to serve him for some later existence. His relationship with his wife, Giovanna, from which he is separated in the house (but the apartment in which he lives is strategically divided in two), are characterized by passivity: she washing his linen, cooking hm polpettone and on Fridays dragging him at the Theatre. But when overwork and overweight are likely to create serious health problems to Elia, the psychoanalyst is forced to do what he hates more: physical training. To train him will be an unlikely personal trainer, the Spanish Claudia, who is always ready to go to trouble but possesses a speculative ability good for Elijah: he restores the minds, her bodies. Needless to say, the strange couple will eventually turn out to be a precious mortgage company, and that great friendship between Elia and Claudia will be born.
