C'è Lando, un giovane siciliano appena assunto come autista grazie ad una raccomandazione politica dall'Amministratore Delegato di una grande azienda di Gas, l'ingegnere Brigatti, il tipo di manager spregiudicato, trasformista, sempre in sella con tutti i governi degli ultimi decenni. A Cortina arrivano anche due coppie di parenti: Massimo e Brunella, in lotta con Andrea e Wanda. Brunella e Wanda sono sorelle e hanno sposato Massimo e Andrea, i quali con loro hanno attaccato il cappello: infatti le due sorelle hanno una modesta edicola a Bergamo. Tra i cognati è scoppiata la guerra perché Andrea ha vinto 250 mila euro al gioco dei Pacchi in tv. Inoltre a Cortina, nel loro chalet, villeggiano come da tradizione i Covelli. Roberto Covelli è un affermato avvocato romano. Elena, sua moglie, borghese capitolina, è una tipa tosta e spiritosa." -- internet
