In the kingdom of mozzarella, the region around Naples in Campania, Ciccio “DOP” (Gianpaolo Fabrizio) is the most important “casaro” (dairyman), the absolute master of a white empire of buffalos, milk and mozzarella. After years of uncontested reign, Ciccio “DOP” suddenly faces a cut-throat competition set off by mysterious Chinese entrepreneurs who are taking over the market. His reaction causes a chain of events which involve his charming daughter Sofia (Luisa Ranieri); her husband and not even remotely successful neomelodic singer Angelo Tatangelo (Massimiliano Gallo); his former singing-partner and ex-love Autilia “Jazz Mood” (Aida Turturro); Dudo (Massimiliano Rossi), a former-water polo player; and Ciccio “DOP”’s loyal accountant (Andrea Renzi).
