For 30 years now Silvio Berlusconi has been influencing Italian society through his TV stations. For the last 15 years he has dominated the political scene. Despite conflicts of interest, criminal proceedings, innumerable policy blunders, his popularity in Italy is still quite high. How is this possible. Against the background of upcoming regional elections, this film is a snapshot of the mood in the country. It paints a portrait of Berlusconi’s supporters and of some those demanding his resignation.
