Aldino has never been lucky in life. He calls himself a bad brother, a bad partner, an unreliable friend.
As a child, he already felt out of place. How could he really exist alongside a brother whose perfection reveals his own flaws? He tried his best to do well, to attract interest and enthusiasm, but could hardly convince even his own parents.
He decides to close himself off and takes refuge in solitude. His girlfriend, Emilie, is his best ally against the blows and wounds he is used to suffering. Having given up his dreams and letting his passion for music aside, he now works for a debt collection company. His love life, however, is far from satisfying, and his procrastination drives Emilie away.
So when he receives mysterious text messages from his mother, which he believes to be from another world, since his parents have died, he gets annoyed, questions himself, becomes suspicious and ends up being curious about the source. This desire to solve the mystery will help Aldino accept himself for who he is and change his life
