    Pain, duty and the law
    Will seal the fate of two wondrous, timeless characters
    A harsh, violent, entirely gripping story.

    On a dis­tant, maybe imag­i­nary, island of the North, a young man is brought to the castle of Louvars, sen­tenced to live out his life there after sav­agely killing his own father. This man, with his angelic face and ice cold eyes, has lost all rights to evoke his past, and faces an excep­tional pun­ish­ment: the “Green Bracelet”, which brings unbear­able pain to its wearer. And thus, the man without a past becomes the Cursed Man.

    He meets the respected Emmanuel Louvars, a just and righ­teous master, who is bur­dened with the role of the Cursed Man’s keeper. He wit­nesses his courage, and dig­ni­fied silence when faced with suf­fering. Little by little, they form a bond, a trou­bling rela­tion­ship that brings with it a lot of doubt. What is Good? What is Evil? What are the limits of jus­tice? Where does duty end and com­pas­sion begin?
