Tommaso and Arturo have made their escape, seeking refuge in the forest.
Life is good now, despite everything.
But careful: you always die when you’re least expecting it – even if you’re young, happy at last, and have never done anything bad.
Decades later, the forest which witnessed the deaths of Arturo and Tommaso now seems to be infested with ravenous wolves. Nowadays, nobody remembers the story of the two young men. But in this very same forest, Ariane discovers a strange hole. Could Ariane, then, be the girl mentioned in the local legend told in the valley? The reason why Ariane entered the hole remains a mystery. The fact is, nothing’s been heard of her since. Everyone puts their own spin on the story, but all agree on one thing: Ariane met the wolf.
