Made In Italy is a heart-warming comedy set in glorious Tuscany about bohemian London artist Robert who returns to Italy with his estranged son Jack to make a quick sale of the house they once lived in, with their late wife and mother. Neither expects to find the once beautiful villa in such a state of disrepair...

Renovations get underway but the amount of work is significant and father and son soon find themselves at odds - not for the first time. Robert's comical lack of DIY experience leads him to seek help from some colourful locals, but for Jack, the state of the house seems to mirror his search for memories of happier times with his mother. Then he falls for Natalia, a vivacious young Italian chef, who restores both body and soul with delights from her local trattoria - until the pair find their developing relationship in jeopardy from Natalia's jealous and threatening ex-husband.

As Robert and Jack painstakingly restore the villa to its previous glory, they also start to mend their relationship. The future may now look quite different and surprise them both.
