A stubborn hunting by a coroner from Turin, passionate scholar about ancient human remains, in search of the brilliant inventor of a fake Persian mummy. A long journey to mythical places, to remote sites of Anatolia, on the historic streets of the Hittites, Darius and Alexander the Great, in the hope of finding not only the forger but an answer, perhaps from a Sibyl or a revived oracle, for giving rest to inner struggles. Finally, the fatal match that will change his life.
