Summary: Aurora is a murder mystery turned on its head - where the mystery's not the culprit, but the motive. Inside a non-descript apartment kitchen, a man and a woman discuss the inconsistencies in Little Red Riding Hood, their voices hushed, mindful of waking the little girl sleeping in the next room. Behind a line of abandoned trailers, on the outskirts of Bucharest, the same man waits for something or someone to arrive. At a metallurgical factory, he collects two hand-made firing pins secretly prepared by a coworker. the man's name is Viorel. he is 42 years old, divorced, a father of two young girls, and today he will carry out a plant that will bring order to his world.
