Most of the characters in Marilyn’s Eyes have mental health issues that have gotten them into trouble with the law. Diego (Stefano Accorsi) lost his last job as a chef when he destroyed a dining room because someone in the kitchen kept moving the flour. Clara (Miriam Leone) pretends to be an actress and after her husband discovered her career was invented, she set their home on fire, destroying two apartments and a neighbor’s dog. In lieu of jail time, they are both assigned to an out-patient therapy group. Among the other clients are someone who believes he’s in touch with aliens and someone who believes we are doubles and that our real selves are living elsewhere. Paris (Thomas Trabacchi), their chief therapist, encourages more ordinary contact with the outer world and his suggestion leads the group to invite the public for meals cooked by Diego. Fantasist Clara takes it a step further and uses social media to invent a restaurant with stellar reviews, telling callers that the wait for a table is six months. Diego is only allowed supervised visits with his young daughter and thinks if they really open a restaurant, she’ll be impressed. Will it all work out?.
