A dark secret and a big love
Berlin in the 19th century: Rika is given a nameless picture as a present - black shadows, ghostly-looking trains, figures with their backs turned. A vivid picture, and there is not one single face in it. She is so fascinated that she decides to find the artist. Her search takes her to the periphery of the city, where she tracks down Anthonis, an outsider, brilliant and enigmatic, who has withdrawn from the world and usually only paints one thing: people without a face. Rika instinctively knows that there is more to it than Anthonis would like her to believe – and she is determined to uncover his secret.
