Fabrizio, a young man with a temporary job and Chiara, a girl from a middle class family background who works as a sales girl in a clothes shop, meet by chance in a pharmacy during a rainy night.
A passionate love affair starts between them that will dangerously affect their lives. Fabrizio is married to Ada whom he loves tenderly. She often falls into psychosomatic crises,
dark moods. She is pregnant and doesn't want her child.
Each one of them in a different way will become more and more alienated from their daily routines. Their spite and hopelessness toward today's empty values grows.
And suddenly impulses that are usually hidden, suffocated in us, in people next to us, those feelings that we push down for the sake of normality, begin to rise.
An intensity longed for, pain, torment denied, begin to emerge.
"Sometimes I think objects love us more than people, and we feel guilty for living" says Chiara. Slowly she will break all rules of "normality" and will involve Fabrizio in an absurd extreme plan that will change the course of their destiny.
