Private Project

Beyond the Mist - the mistery of Rainer Merz

A week before Easter a great actor disappears from the set where an historic movie is shot. A
private detective discreetly comes entrusted of the fact. Since the beginning of the inquiry he tries
the anxious perception to be somehow involved in the departed stories of the disappeared one.
The places, among which a former factory of chocolate, where years before a child was dead in
mysterious circumstances, are soaked with esoteric signs.
The Man, in the spasmodic yearning of omnipotence, clashes with the proud reaction of the
Nature (the Woman), not at all willing to accept his domain.
