His heart was beating like never before, he was sweating more than usual although it was not due to physical effort. He was scared, he was scared that the soldiers would search the bike and discover his secret. Fortunately, they just wanted his autograph and the cyclist was saved again. This is the story of Gino Bartali. A Tuscan who won his first Giro d’Italia in 1936 at the age of twenty-two. He had a promising future but Benito Mussolini used sport as propaganda in favor of the regime, that’s why he forced Bartali to compete in the Tour of 1938. The outbreak of WWII ended all sports competitions, but Gino kept on training and his mission was to cycle from Florence to Assisi where the safe-passage papers were printed. From Assisi, hidden in his bicycle, Bartali carried the documents, stopped only to sign dedications. Thanks to thousands of kilometers over a bicycle, Gino managed to save lives, almost eight hundred and most of them children. He was a talent born in the right time.

Year 2051. The largest company in the world, called The Company, takes over the government on a planetary level and begins to run it as if it were a company. In a plutocracy, being richer is equivalent to having more power, there are no longer elections, but shareholders’ meetings in which the vote is based on the number of shares that each citizen owns. The government is made up of those who accumulate the most shares and everything is governed by the laws of the market, which gives rise to a curious political system. In this context, an anonymous citizen decides to investigate how the world has reached that situation beyond the official version. Without knowing very well why, members of the government itself end up encouraging him to carry out said investigation apparently against his own interests, facilitating access to all the information.
