    • Yosi, a 17-year-old graffitiboy who drags his nuisance into a night school, joins an anarchist network of CARBURNERS.
      The group receives goals from a mysterious "troll": someone looking for emotional responses in the system. They do not know each other, they wear masks. Yosi is interested in Samanta (19) one of the girls in the group.
      Designated target attacks are recorded and uploaded to the network. Objectives are random. There is an account in bitcoinssomewhere; those who survive will have to start a new life.
      He gets his first mission, burns a marked car,he records everything with a Go pro in his cap. When he sets the car on fire, he finds someone inside tied up and burning. Yosi tries desperately to do something, but he does not succeed, he barely gets to fleefrom the explosion.
      He understands that he is also part of this and is responsible for a homicide, his video is on the net. When the girl he likes disappears, Yosi tries to penetrate what is behind that organization. He finds a network of extortion and bloody blackmail that leads to the troll, and he suspects that his life and that of his mother are in danger.
      Harassed by minority services, Yosi discovers that the burners have a mentor in the university cloisters: Professor Frobenius. He tells him his strange ideas about parallel worlds and how to change them by fire. But what shooksYosi is to find a picture of Samanta, the teacher's deceased daughter!
      Following the track of the ghost girl, Yosi arrives at the closed area of a hospital, where Intensive Therapy was. In a bed, someone like Yosi, sleeps in a deep coma. It is the door between two worlds. In that other world, Yosi is not a graffiti guy or a carburner in love with a shadow, but a young political promise. And his mother is not an unoccupied depressive but an ambitious corrupt senator ... in that other world he has run over and killed on the road a young cyclist from a poor neighborhood, an avatar of Samanta, who is now a specter.
