The film tells the story of Luca, a fifteen year old boy who falls into a coma after a ' perfectly successful ' operation, and the despair of his parents who lose all hope: there is no medical center in Italy that will accept him, no help from the scientific world. Suddenly they find themselves in a world to them unknown, where their own son is in a coma and they don't know what to do.
The film is taken from real events, and aims in helping a community center for youths called :" The House of Awakenings Luca De Nigris ". The proceeds from the film will be donated in favor of the center.
Freely adapted from the book " The operation is perfectly successful " by Maria Vaccari,Monica Vaccari, Fulvio De Negris.
