An obscure alchemist with his face hidden behind a mask performs experiments on human beings, to find the 21 grams that are lost at the precise moment of death 21 grams which, according to revered shamans but also in the opinion of numerous scientists, correspond to the weight of the soul. And what greater power can there be than that of succeeding in imprisoning souls and their ineffable secrets? In his search for the homicidal alchemist, Brendon is helped by Clio, a girl who, despite herself, sees the ghosts of those who die of a violent death, and by Rupert, a comical storyteller. But how much of the stories he tells is pure fantasy and how much is genuine truth?
