    • Synopsis
    • A fresh crypt. A man, whose strokes can not be seen, steals a photograph from the grave.

      Five years later, Sylvie Draxia, a sublime but poisonous woman, hires Raskolnikhov, a private, to find 3 men.

      Cloistered in his room, walled up in his home, the psychopath performs the same ritual every day: shaving bodies, and paintings of esoteric glyphs from floor to ceiling.

      In his police station, the obese cop chokes his lieutenants when one of his control screens attracts his attention.

      In a supermarket, the little girl asks for help to whoever wants to hear it, then it disappears. A few seconds later, a gas leak caused a blast effect, which by chain reaction exploded the store before collapsing the huge cupola glass, destroying the entire neighborhood.

      The obese cop sees on his screen the alarm signals start. When she gets home, Draxia turns back on hearing the blast. His eyes then crossed that of an archaeotechnologist, whose aerial metro was passing in the street.

      A few hours later, while he is walking 100 steps in his office, the obese cop receives in turn the visit of the little girl.
