The writer Edoardo Timbri is a man who has perhaps reached the end. It is at the end of his novel, perhaps the last. He is at the end of his days. Maybe the last seven. And as happens in books, it is in the end that the accounts are made, that the ultimate meaning of all the chosen words is returned, that the meaning of all the choices made is understood. So he decides to use the time he has left to reach the seven people he loved and hurt the most, and try to heal with them. In search of the words he cannot find, riding a wasp, with a baggage of errors, questions, stolen words, disappointments, he wanders sure to reach a goal that will give him answers. Maybe.
