‘9th July 2016, National Gallery. A man triggers a mysterious weapon. Everybody inside the museum dies instantly. The man walks away without leaving any trace, throwing the city into chaos. On the same night, a hitman’s phone chimes. On the screen, a name, a picture and a task: kill the man and retrieve the weapon. A long forgotten name brings a dead man back to life, into a world he doesn’t belong to anymore, where all ideologies are outdated. A secret buried for more than 30 years comes back: the world is now in jeopardy. The line once dividing heroes and villains is now blurred by a sea of noise, but everything will set into a peaceful silence.’

No one knows what he will write to her, however, at some point, the words written from the protagonist are transformed into music. The writer is no more writing on his typewriter, but now a piano resounds, reflecting the protagonist’s feelings.’
