Set in the postwar period, the film brings to the screen an all-Italian story: not only the life of the historic founder of the car manufacturer Lamborghini, from his modest beginnings as a tractor manufacturer to his infamous rivalry with Enzo Ferrari, but also the story of Italy in the 1950s, a country engaged in the complex transition to a new industrialized modernity.
