Michael closed the door and knew at that moment that he had made a terrible mistake, a mistake that would haunt him for the rest of his life, but now he has no choice.
The people that he thought would help him, endup messing his life, but to understand Michael’s story we have to go back to a time when crime rule the cities, a time when people were afraid to leave their homes, a time when big revolutions occurred.
Michael was seventeen years old and he recently had had to leave school to work in a shoe factory, he loved going to school and he was very intelligent, always had good grades but he had to help his family pay the bills and to put food on the table.
One day when he was leaving the factory, he noticed a small paper in his coat pocket. The paper said:
“Meet me at the abandoned factory tomorrow near the theatre. It’s important, you are in great danger. I’m the only one who can help you!”
Maybe someone had put the paper there when he was working, he didn’t know. One thing he was sure he had to go to the factory to find out what was going on…
