Stella is studying to be a pharmacist at university. When the time comes to write her thesis she is inserted in a research group. She gradually comes to realize that something is wrong in the chemistry laboratories. The environment is unhealthy, a few people are beginning to feel ill, the professors speak of coincidence. Her friend Anna, who has given up her studies to play in an indie-punk band, wants Stella to stop working in those laboratories. But Stella is determined not to give up her dream. Inspired by the diary of Emanuele, a researcher in pharmaceutics at the University of Catania who died of lung cancer in December 2003, five years before the chemistry laboratories were closed for environmental pollution.
