Erick is a young gemologist who works for a bank that specializes in classifying diamonds. He and his colleagues spend long hours analyzing the imperfections of these precious stones, until one day he becomes incapable of doing his job. He is fired for claiming to have found the perfect gem, an obviously flawed stone, because he has fallen in love with a girl called Gemma, and has come to believe that imperfections are what give character and make something special and unique.
