Once in the morning lawyer Yen Mitchell (Maylo Ventimilya) finds at itself under a door a box in which the gun and the photo any not the man known to it with the signature lie that he should die in three days. Yens causes police, but the dress shows amazing indifference to that he tells, and the inspector hints the man that «time ask – it is necessary to make», and at all does not take away the gun.
