Laura, a researcher at a medical university, is back in Italy after 3 years studying in Belgium. She has an important interview in Rome for a job teaching at a university. Looking for accommodation, after she faces problems, she finds a place to stay sharing an apartment with Vanessa, a girl who won a famous TV reality show and is willing to be a showgirl. Laura and Vanessa are opposites in culture and lifestyle. When Laura finds out that her job had been given to another girl who had a recommendation, she is furious and vents her frustration at Vanessa. Through this argument, Laura learns an unexpected truth and, thanks to Vanessa’s help, Laura gets the job.
