Many centuries ago, the van Eyck brothers painted a masterpiece. It was comprised of twenty panels depicting a religious narrative that continues to inspire far beyond its date of creation. One of the panels was stolen, and ongoing searches for it lead us to strange encounters, both historical and present-day.
A sociopath with a deep-rooted hatred against his brother, spiritually motivated by this work and its history, seeks revenge upon humanity.
Another painting, ordinary in its inception and nameless in its existence, becomes an object instilled with magic. Its painter, Decharelle, cannot name it despite life-long attempts. Our sociopath plans a theft of this painting, retribution, and his own suicide around this work.
All will end.
Redemption is not of this world. A twisted discourse is all that is left, a discourse uncertain of its value and unsure of its survival.
