Vesuvius is awakening. Luisa, a young volcanologist exploited by a hungry-power colleague, is sent on location for a survey. She meets a Mariano, a member of Camorra who has just found out he has been betrayed and that wants to cut all the binds with his “friends”: his only worry is to save his daughter from their vengeance. Luisa and Mariano have nothing in common a part from a sense of defeat and soon a friendship blossoms between the girl and the mature criminal.
