There are those who want to die, but can’t. This is the case of Monica, who moved to the Emerald. There are those who would like to live and manage to, such as Chata, who prefers her miserable existence to nothing. There are those who would just like the pain to end, one way or the other, such as Edoardo. Then there are those who ask for the truth, such as Nicola. To discover why whoever ever lived at the Emerald cannot die anymore. Fleeing is useless, there is no escape. It might seem like a gift, but it’s a curse. It doesn’t treat old age, it doesn’t even cure illnesses, it just prevents from finding peace. Those once elegant palaces now seem abandoned, but who lives there? Four unlikely allies – a secretary, a prostitute, a pensioner and an ex-convict – decide to discover it.
