the man who lived and relived

This drama is a video set to music. It leverages expressions, rather than on the dialogues. These are silenced to give space to the soundtrack and the final song, which is in the Sicilian language.
The story tells of the labor problem, in Sicily, where even the bravest and most deserving, has difficulties due to politics and the underworld.
The character, a young engineer, working for a company that builds great works.
Harassed by not being able to go ahead with his plan, the protagonist, decides to kill an officer who does not want to give permissions for the realization of his project signed, because the company has no intention of paying the bribe.
The whole thing is surreal, because people will buy the building to kill the protagonist to make it clear that the official was avenged.
The owner of the company that to lower the construction costs has concocted the plan, he laughs satisfied, because in Sicily most of the time it is evil to win at the expense of those who leaves or who really knows how to do.
Everything is marked by an unnatural element invisible, which is the guardian angel who accompanies us throughout life. This does not interfere in any way with each of us by giving us free will, and transports us in the afterlife in heaven for making us welcome as we imagine after death among the people we loved the most, as the grandfather of the character and then depart a new life in the reincarnation of a little girl ready to be reborn.
