PlotEdit

The story begins in the late 1980s, and in the first phase of the novel, the relationship between four young people who, for one reason or another, chose New York as a university destination is emphasized. Alan (American), Susana (Brazilian), Adriano (Italian) and Débora (Israeli) become inseparable, exploring fascinating Manhattan intensely. Alan and Susana live a delicate relationship that evolves into a beautiful love story; Adriano and Debora are more intense and passionate and, surrounded by a mysterious and somber force, marry in a troubled way and live an unhappy relationship. Other everyday and parallel characters appear in this first phase and will be introduced during the course of the novel.

The second phase begins in 2001, with the return of the failing and doubtful couple, Adriano and Débora and son Ricardo to the Big Apple, where they resume contact with the old couple of friends Alan, Susana and their son, Benjamin. Débora, however, is envious of Susana, since her relationship with Adriano is faceless. Several apocalyptic prophecies promise to take place in various cities around the world, in Rio de Janeiro, Rome, Jerusalem, and New York, where the fateful September 11 is part of the narrative.

The third phase brings the story to the present day and shows how the characters are impacted by the biblical promises. There will be moments of faith, hope, pain, sadness and anguish, where the audience will see the best and the worst of the human being. Ricardo will be the antagonist, the antichrist who will fight to dominate the world; he will empower himself with scientific discoveries of Benjamin, who has become a great scientist and has married Zoe, and will use it to commit atrocities. People of the past who have committed terrible acts may surprise the public by accepting Christ, while "lukewarm" Christians may not resist and prefer to worship the devil to be spared from death.[2]
