These are the wounds that he himself brought upon Marilena. However he has already prepared her punishment. Only sixty steps separate him from his revenge. After three years of humiliation and degradation, and hatred that slowly fed on his soul, will true love suddenly find a rift through which it can slip through and enter his heart? Of will he manage to cross those sixty steps and take the revenge that he has planned and, if so, at what cost?
