Andrea Marigliano is a young lawyer who arrived in Naples from the province to enter the study of Professor Scalia, "The largest criminalist of the South". Trepid and passionate, Andrea lives in a state of suffused exaltation, a kind of limbo in which he appreciates life and at the same time has nostalgia. The professor, on the other hand, is a wounded man, emblem of that irriducible waste between the bright coherence of the law and the dark fragility of existence. Despite the differences, the old master and the young student will give life, in a brief as an extraordinary season, to a singular association, a sort of communion founded on a strong affinity of tastes and visions. But how passionate discussions on cinema, music, boxing cement their intellectual agreement, so the complicated defense of an elderly and repellent individual accused of sexual harassment against a girl is destined to score their destinies forever.
