Synopsis

Geremia di Geremei: seventy years old, usurer, monstrously ugly, dirty, rich and stingy, cynical and ironic. He has a morbid, obsessive relationship with money. Everything makes him sick: his mother, father, money, women – in short, life.
This is the reason why he feels he’s alone. And yet he isn’t.
Everyone’s like him.
We are all like him.
