The official synopsis reads, “All episodes in the series intertwine two timelines, two points of view, two phases of the same story of love and friendship that started in 1998 and continues to the present day.” The story will be dealing with two dynamics, the point of view about love and friendship that people were having in 1998 and others in these current times.


Angelo Spagnoletti will be playing the role of Daniel on the show while Cristina Cappelli will portray the character of Matilda. Other actors on the show include the likes of Fabio Balsamo (Sandro), Gianluca Colucci (Luca), Biagio Forestieri (Bruno), Sebastiano Kiniger (Enea) and Federica Pirone (Cristina).



‘Generation 56k’ is based on an original story by The Jackal founder Francesco Ebbasta, who will direct four episodes, while the other four will be directed by Alessio Maria Federici.



The trailer sees three young children trying to get hold of the internet even when their parents have told them to stay away from it. The clips also see them being an adult and opening a company. Daniel meets a girl named Matilda and they have a really good time together. But it turns out that they actually know each other from their adolescence and they have met once again.
