Ora o mai più

June 2001. David is in his last year studying physics in the most prestigious Italian university, the Normale University in Pisa. An irreprehensible curriculum and a top average, David lives in a parallel dimension made up of thoughts about maximum systems, with little relationship to daily matters. The day of his last exam, David encounters Viola in the university hallways, she hands him a leaflet and continues on her way. Without second thoughts he follows her and ends up involved in a student assembly. From then on, for the first time in his life, David starts asking questions and making choices: what should he do? Leave the assembly or risk missing the exam? Then later on, give up Viola or betray Luca, her boyfriend and now his best new friend?
What’s best? Be led by rationality or just follow your mood? Passing through moments of comedy and moments of drama, demonstrations, sit-ins and social commitment, in a few months David goes down a path that discovers passions, and learns about feelings that in the end leave him stunned, as if he had stepped out of a centrifuge, full of traumas and above all full of life.
