Chapter 1 How did we Survive So Long? March 27, 1991 A man observes a city that no longer seems his to him. Neon lights, traffic, people walking busily, and they are unaware of a man dying on the street corner. The threat of nuclear war, gas masks, bunkers and armies on standby... everything seems like just a bad memory, but the fear of what you don't know is getting bigger - for everyone except him.
Chapter 2 Mistakes, Lights and Breaths Sept. 30, 1961 A woman is alone in a car, the rain starts to fall, the noise of drops on the glass, leaving the mark of time before her last breath. She is writing a letter for the man she loves, knowing that letter will kill her...but she wants him to know the truth about her. What she doesn't know is that she won't be the only person to die of guilt from the black ink on that sheet of paper. A sudden light surprises her, the sound of her breathing is always stronger, then... only silence.
Chapter 3 50 Hours after Ilinx Aug. 13 ,1963 The man has abandoned his sadness and is ready for anything, his revenge. Looking at his own face in the mirror, nothing remains of his innocence, nothing of his memories, he doesn't even recognize his eyes. At that moment, he has already decided what to do and is ready for anything.
Utopia 03:51
Chapter 4 Utòpia May 18,1963 The man is walking calmly - he is going to meet his destiny. He knows that he is no longer the same now, and he will become a murderer. His hand trembles, but only to be able to fire that shot.
Penelope 04:00
Chapter 5 Penelope June 16,1961 The man enters a cafe. It is the beginning of summer and the heat is growing. A waitress approaches him. Her long black hair frames her face, she has the eyes of someone who has been waiting for something all her life, and her smile is sad. He doesn't know her yet, but he knows he will love her forever.
Chapter 6 Last Letter You Wrote    - Realization    - Rage    - Sadness    - Revenge Oct. 1, 1961 The man is alone in the rain, in front of him is the woman he loves, but she is now dead. They had to meet in that damned place that evening. Only one half-written letter will remain of her, words that condemned her. At that moment, he thinks back to everything she has been, to what she has written to him and would have written with that pen she was holding between her fingers. He takes the dirty sheet of blood and brings it closer to his heart, but he will not shed a tear.
Chapter 7 Like a Daydream or A Fever July 4, 1961 They are dancing by the sea, the sunset surrounds them. She smiles, and he feels alive for the first time. Their feet no longer touch the sand, everything becomes opaque and flat, slowly vanishing in his arms and in his mind. Seagulls pass, and meanwhile, a man is watching them from the street - he is laughing.
Nemesys 04:59
Chapetr 8 Nemesys Aug 13, 1963 The man has carried out his revenge: he killed a man, the same man who two years earlier had killed the woman he loved and who had wanted to kill him too, the same man who laughed at their love. He is safe, he has avenged himself. He smiles, even though he knows he will never be a free man.
Chapter 9 Hidden Code - Aka Keyser Soze Has Killed Again Dec 1, 1978 The man now suddenly remembers that letter and the love...forgotten. Those past days seem almost unreal to him, he only remembers the gloomy sky and words whispered in the wind. They told him he killed a man for no reason. He had spoken of a woman that man had killed, but to everyone else, she had never existed. He has something in his shirt pocket, an old crumpled sheet that nobody had ever wanted to read. His mind flies through the bars on the window, and dives into the sea which he remembers, only its smell.
Chapter 10 Why did it always Rain under the trees? Sept 2, 1945 The storm has passed, the radio in the living room speaks of a war that has finished thanks to the last bomb that was dropped. Penelope is a little girl and just wants to go out to play in the garden with her dog, that garden with so many trees behind the house. The storm has passed, the rain has stopped, but the sky is still. Only grey. Penelope walks under the trees with her mother and asks the question: "Why does it rain only under the trees?"
