Max is 11 years old, he is obsessed with air pollution and decides to stop breathing or at least wants to do it as little as possible to not pollute and livee più a lungo. Lo confessa a Erika, la sua migliore amica: la notizia non la sorprende. 

Surprised instead are Max’s parents when they find him engaged in one of his daily apnea exercises. The parents take him to a psychologist who, in an attempt to help him, changes the shape of his obsession.
