Lorenzo, 25-years-old and from a good family, is a rock guitarist dedicated to the philosophy of living in the moment. During a trip skiing, a collision with a chair lift pylon leaves him completely paralysed from the neck down. From that day begins a long convalescence for his body, but also for his soul – first in an Italian hospital, then in a Swiss clinic, and finally in his parents’ house in Rome, where he shuts himself away to pour all his energies into pure self-pity. When his fiancée, who has supported and cared for him for over a year, resigns herself to leaving him, Lorenzo decides to commit suicide. That is unless something pushes him to win her back, and from there to regain his own life.
