‘Still Out of My League’ Plot Summary
Marta ends her marriage with Arturo because they don’t find each other compatible. No time has passed, and she meets Gabriele, an artist in a park, and they hit it off. This time, she tells him at the beginning about her illness. He says he feels worried, but that was okay. They start spending quite a lot of time together.
Jacopo downloads a dating app, but instead of finding one person, he keeps meeting multiple men and ends up losing sleep and dating no one. Federica wins a local gambling game and Mauro, who was also playing, offers her a job at his company. She gets an internship as an Ethical Hacker despite not having a degree or any experience.
After messing up all of his dates, Jacopo uninstalls the app and loses his interest in dating when Tommaso, a delivery guy, comes into his life. He develops a crush on him but has no idea if Tommy is gay or not. After some days, Federica discovers the dirty truth about Mauro from her senior colleagues and decides to expose him even if it means losing her job. On the other hand, Gabriele receives a job offer from Paris, but he declines because that means being in a long-distance relationship with Marta.
Gabriele Moves To Paris
Marta doesn’t like the fact that Gabriele is declining such a good opportunity for their relationship. She convinces him to go to Paris. They decide to stay in a long-distance relationship but are worried if they can make it work. Gabriele says to Marta that he will be waiting for her to come to meet him. While Gabriele is gone, Marta has a lot of time to spare. She agrees to help Jacopo find if his crush is gay or not.
To get close to Tommy and get his number, she asks him to change his soaked clothes and invites him inside the home. Gabriele watches him on the video call and feels uneasy. He comes back to visit Marta on the day when Tommy had asked Marta to go out with him. They go together with Jacopo; that’s when Gabriele assumes that Tommy likes Marta.
