The plot of Home for all 2 – The series
The first episode reveals that Geneva (Laura Adriani) survived the accident but is in a coma in the hospital meanwhile the Ristuccias and the Marianis gather to talk about Verena’s death. Sunrise (Laura Morante) the Ristuccia matriarch takes all the wrath and contempt of her three sons Carlo (Francis Scianna), Paul (Simone Liberati) and Sarah (Silvia D’Amico) for hiding the murder of his father Pietro’s young lover. After this introductory part of All’s Well At Home 2 – The series there is a time jump of a good year and finally Ginevra wakes up and the Ristuccia brothers try in every way to keep their family business, that is the restaurant, afloat Saint Peter.
Sara starts dating a well-known starred chef (Tom Leeb) and leaves her faithless husband Diego (Antonio Folletto), Paolo is fighting to regain custody of his son Giovanni (Federico Ielapi) who lives in Paris and Carlo has to face the return home of Ginevra who unfortunately can’t walk anymore and doesn’t remember the body hidden by Alba and Maria Ristuccia (Paola Sotgiu). Meanwhile, however, another threat resurfaces from the past, the underworld Adriano Abbattista, no longer in jail but under house arrest, which is why Luana (Emma Brown) frightened by the incident, she leaves Maria’s second son, that is Riccardo (Alessio Moneta) and also takes away the few months old son Cesare. Meanwhile Sandro Mariani’s illness (Valerio Aprea) gets worse and his wife Beatrice (Milena Mancini) is forced to leave her husband Alzheimer’s patient in a clinic that will take care of him, one of the most touching scenes of the series in general.
The finale of the fourth episode is perhaps the most unexpected moment of these first six episodes of the second season of Everyone at home is fine. Without revealing too much, again as it happened years before, the story somehow repeats itself, a Ristuccia and a Mariani find themselves at night with a dead man in the restaurant kitchen, with the mission to get rid of him as soon as possible. From here the two characters experience firsthand everything their mothers went through, of course this new murder is not an accident but an act of defense against Luna (Swabian Mariani) who was about to be raped by a man hiding in the courtyard of the restaurant. In the sixth episode the police begin to investigate the discovery of a charred corpse in a quarry and the first suspects are precisely the members of the two San Pietro families.
An Italian family drama

The first serial production of the director who made himself known to the general public in 2001 with the film The Last Kiss, also plays on the contrasts between the brothers who want to manage the family business, in this case the San Pietro restaurant, inherited of the patriarch who has now passed away.
