We are in Germany, a luxury hotel where he is about to meet a G8 finance ministers prepared to adopt a secret maneuver that will have very serious consequences for some countries. With the men of government, there are also the director of the International Monetary Fund, Daniel Roché, and three guests: a famous writer of children's books, a rock star and an Italian monaco, Roberto Salus.
But it happens a tragic and unexpected and the meeting should be suspended. In a climate of doubt and fear, ministers and engage monaco an increasingly close challenge around the secret. Ministers suspect that Salus fact, by the admission of one of them, was able to know of the terrible maneuver they are about to launch, and involving in any way to say what he knows.
But things are not so smooth: while monaco - a paradoxical and unsettling man, for many elusive aspects - becomes the guardian of the unmovable confession secret, the men of power, assailed by remorse and uncertainties, begin to waver.
