A gold coin leads to a forbidden world.

Atmospheric. Dark. Fast-moving. An adventure story with unusual vignettes in the style of collages.
In Ypsilon, a high-rise estate near a river, Chicco and his teenage gang, Boyzz, are spreading fear and panic. The 12-year-old twins Marsha and Jessie live there, too. One night, the pair rescue a dog the Boyzz are harassing and, with the gang on their heels, flee towards the river – and stumble over a bag full of gold coins. When one of the coins rolls into the water, an ancient raft suddenly appears close to the bank. A mysterious ferryman takes the twins to an alien world, where their fate will be decided by a forbidden song and a cursed boy.
