The story of Marta, a 12‐year‐old mystery hunter, begins in Casaolmo, a little lowland town shrouded in smog, on the first spring day of the year 2020, when her big‐bottomed neighbor brings her as a gift a strange creature, a fluffy lagomorph with a two‐tone tuft: confined to the garden by Mum‐Witch, however, on a stormy night Tuft disappears. Marta thus begins, on his trail, an underground journey that will take her to the gates of a desolate factory with a thin smokestack spewing smog: here she meets a mysterious Shadow Boy who guides her inside the Infernal Factory, where Tuft has snuck off in search of Muzzle and where a thousand other lagomorphs like her are held captive by sinister big men in white coats.
Meanwhile, in Casaolmo, the inhabitants can no longer leave their homes because a dangerous Virus roams the plain, becoming increasingly invisible (and invincible) as the smog spreads. Back home safe with Tuft and Muzzle, Marta cannot stop thinking about the Shadow Boy and the thousand prisoners, and to succeed in freeing them, she will have to overcome many obstacles: coded messages to decipher, a mother‐witch and spy neighbors cursing from behind windows to deceive, a Pied Piper to flush out, a rusty gate to pass through into the unknown, and a fabled island to be reached by a flying machine…Just as she soars through the clouds above the Island, Marta realizes that the smog is actually an unstoppable cloud of black butterflies, the souls of nameless Lagomorphs forgotten in the Infernal Factories scattered across the plain.
Having landed on the Island with Tuft, Muzzle and the Thousand, Marta meets Shadow again, who at the command of the boys who inhabit the redwoods is planning about to free all the Lagomorphs of the plain: The Shadow boys however, subjugated by the Invisible Virus, returning to the island on rafts with the Lagomorphs freed from the Infernal Factories, would like to keep them in cages and sacrifice them all to him in order to end the world. As the forest burns along with the dens and the Thousand flee through the underground tunnel duged by Muzzle, all seems lost…but thanks to the help of the blackbirds and the herons and, of course, the inseparable Tuft, Marta succeeds in the feat of save the world rescuing the Lagomorphs, who set sail on a Super‐raft towards Luz, the City of Light.
