One day, a soothsayer on the shore of Lake Baikal, Siberia, told Alberto Giuliani that he would die a violent death sometime between 2020 and 2021. He never fully believed the prophecy, until it was confirmed by a shaman in Vrindavan, India. The shaman told him always to wear a yellow sapphire on his right index finger. The stone would help him choose between life and death, when the fateful day would come. The two prophecies have let Alberto with a hunger to know what the future of humanity will look like, because he may not be here to witness it first hand. And so he started travelling, in search for an answer.
