Lea is a pediatric nurse at the hospital situated in Ferrara. She had a stillborn child, and she will no longer be able to be a mother. The tragedy caused the end of her marriage, but it also reinforced her natural empathy towards children - she gives them the love that she cannot give to her own child. Returning to work after a long absence, Lea becomes indispensable for the little patients, not just because of clinical skills, but above more because of her human aspects. Lea will have to work with her ex-husband Marco, head of Pediatrics, and with her ex-friend Anna, a gynecologist at the hospital and Marco's new girlfriend. But Lea's life could be changed with the appearance of Arturo, a fascinating musician and father of one of her patients. A special relationship is born between him and Lea.
Each episode contains the story of Lea and her close-knit group of colleagues, but also tells of the hospitalization, diagnosis and treatment of some young patients.
