Antonio Ambrosetti, with his exclusive training course “Future Leaders”, Federico Morgantini,
trying to fulfil his ambitions as an entrepreneur; Matteo Storchi, a successful manager in his family
business. These are the protagonists of “Great Expectations”, a documentary film about Italy’s young
A journey through the places and times of the future managerial class now being shaped. One of them
teaches privileged young people how to hold onto power using expressions, models and experiences;
one of them, who has relocated to Shanghai, is following his dream of opening a sparkling mineral
water plant; one of them, during endless meetings, obstinately imposes a western work method on
blank-faced Chinese employees.
Three episodes, three staging devices, to portray our protagonists at a crucial time in their lives: when
the risk they are taking is not yet guaranteed to succeed.
Marked by destinies already set, a thirst for easy success and economic invasions, the human comedy
accompanies us on a journey from Italy to China, poised between great expectations and misgivings.
