After an attack before a college entrance exam jeopardises his daughter’s future, Romeo Aldea thinks up ways of solving the situation, but none of them follow the principles he taught his daughter. A fascinating and fastidiously complex study of one man’s moral choices at a crucial juncture in his life.
