Filippo, giovane e intraprendente regista alle prime armi, s'innamora, negli studi di TV Sardinia, della bella showgirl Eleonora, ma dovrà fare i conti con la gelosia e con la mancanza di scrupoli del proprietario dell'emittente... Sullo sfondo di una Cagliari assolata e vivace, Filippo ed Eleonora affrontano mille difficoltà, nel caparbio tentativo di coronare il sogno di girare insieme un film.
