Product description

Alvaro is a writer who wants to conquer the world in a carefully planned way. His great ambition to write the definitive work, which will revolutionize the history of literature, is only comparable the dedication and discipline with which he tries to achieve it. He begins to observe his neighbors in order to draw a plot and finds a recently married couple with financial problems, a retired man, and a janitor. To his surprise, what he has desperately longed for comes true, and the need to write realistically about a fictional crime pushes him to provoke it in real life. Alvaro does not see that, regardless of his own perfectionist and ambitious zeal, reality is never as controllable as a novel.
