We are in Germany, in a luxury hotel where a G8 of finance ministers is about to meet, ready to adopt a secret maneuver that is bound to have very serious consequences for some countries. Along with the government officials, there are also the director of the International Monetary Fund, a famous writer of children's books, a rock star, and an Italian monk. But something tragic and unexpected happens and the meeting needs to be suspended. In a climate of doubt and fear, the ministers and the monk engage in an increasingly close challenge around the secret.

Siamo in Germania, in un albergo di lusso dove sta per riunirsi un G8 dei ministri dell’economia pronto ad adottare una manovra segreta che avrà conseguenze molto pesanti per alcuni paesi. Con gli uomini di governo, ci sono anche il direttore del Fondo Monetario Internazionale, una celebre scrittrice di libri per bambini, una rock star, e un monaco italiano. Accade però un fatto tragico e inatteso e la riunione deve essere sospesa. In un clima di dubbio e di paura, i ministri e il monaco ingaggiano una sfida sempre più serrata intorno al segreto.
