Caterina è una suora ed ha preso i voti provvisori da una mese quando andando per un parco incontra un uomo che ha trovato un neonato abbandonato e glielo affida per portarlo in ospedale. Dopo averlo fatto, Caterina comincia ad andare a trovare il piccolo e gli si affeziona tanto da tentare di risalire alla madre tramite il maglione in cui era avvolto. Arriva così fino ad Ernesto, quarantunanni, proprietario di una lavanderia lasciatagli assieme ai debiti dal padre. Ernesto è scontento della vita ed è tutto centrato sui suoi problemi tanto da non ricordare neanche i nomi delle sue collaboratrici. La madre del bambino è forse Teresa, sua ex dipendente ed Ernesto è forse il padre. Inizia così per Caterina una crisi sul suo stato di suora e per Ernesto la consapevolezza di non essere l'unico uomo disgraziato sulla terra.

Everything in his life is very well considered, very finely weighed - even the most crazy, the most incredible, the most adventurous of feats.
