Plot synopsis
A webdesigner gets a poisonpen letter: «This Saturday you must fall silent and utter no word till you are allowed to. To follow this instruction is vital for you and for the people whose pain may become a sad illustration of your reckless misbehavior caused by the usual lack of attention toward significant things». When Saturday comes, a webdesigner forgets about that mysterious warning… What comes next? The true meaning of the events will be revealed at the last moment.
