Elena embraces the feminist cause and has a disagreement with Pietro about it. Pasquale and Nadia arrive unexpectedly at Elena's home in Florence. They are dirty, rude, and neglected. Pasquale relates to Pietro with hostility. After their departure Pietro and Elena quarrel: he doesn't want something like that to happen again.
When the most important friend in her life seems to have disappeared without a trace, Elena Greco, a now-elderly woman immersed in a house full of books, turns on her computer and starts writing the story of their friendship. She met Raffaella Cerullo, whom she has always called Lila, in the first year of primary school in 1950. Set in a dangerous and fascinating Naples, their story covers more than 60 years of their lives as she tries to describe the mystery of Lila, Elena's brilliant friend and - in a way - her best friend, and her worst enemy.
