Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
Filled with a collage of characters and incidents, this mystery story exceeds in ambience and mood. "Reporter X" has come home to Portugal, sick and drugged up with pain killers. Neverthless, he intends to unravel the mystery of a headless corpse and a mask in a box. Once on that trail, he talks to what might be a Moroccan spy and develops a relationship with a Jewish woman. The woman's mother is quite an off-the-wall character who knows how to concoct a disease that could destory life as we know it. All told, Reporter X might have enough reason to go back on the pain killers again.
