Summary: Filmed mostly in Italy, "Ciao America" is the story of Lorenzo Primavera an unsettled, third generation Italian American whose search for his place in the world leads him back to the land of his ancestors. In the small town of Ferrara, Italy, Lorenzo finds work coaching American-style football in the fledgling Italian Football League. It's a league where everyone can kick but no one can catch. While coaching, Lorenzo falls in love with Paola Angelini, a headstrong, young music student who forces him to face the same decision as his immigrant grandfather some seventy years earlier.
