In the heart of the forest, the soldier, Mario, trembles as he raises his rifle. He hesitates, closes his eyes, and finally pulls the trigger. Many years later, Mario awakens from a haunting memory. In his recollection, he observes himself aiming his gun with unwavering resolve, never flinching or closing his eyes before squeezing the trigger. He vividly recalls the face of the person standing before him – a face that was undeniably human.
