    • Synopsis
    • Eva, a promising young physician in Rome, apparently for no reason abandons her brilliant medical career and flies to the US to study History of Medicine. Actually, she is pregnant and suffering from leukemia. The father of the child is totally inadequate. The doctors recommend an abortion, but she is very confused. In her “escape” to the US Eva meets her tutor, Kevin, and together work on the The Book of Vision, written by Johan Storch, an 18th
      century doctor from Halle, a Prussian town. The Book, rather than being a scientifi゙c journal, contains the hopes,fears and dreams of over 1800 of Storch’s patients. The Prussian doctor was close to his patients: he listened to them. Going further in their research, Eva and Kevin discover that Storch was able to describe someone's death before it happened. There is a mystery behind those pages, populated by the living spirit of some characters still wandering in the air. Life and death are both part of a continuous flow, and a picture of a big oak in The Book of Vision symbolizes the eternal circularity of life. Eva and Kevin, after some hesitation and contrasts, fall in love and she decides to keep the child, notwithstanding her illness.
