Johannes Gutman was dreaming. In his dream he was dying. His last thought was about his parents, but he couldn't remember their faces. Instead of that he saw a beautiful face of an angel. The angel touched him gently and said, "It's time to become a real man, Johannes. This is your last chance. This adversary you can't fight with your fists."
"What adversary? What are you talking about?" he asked.
Johannes Gutman is an unlucky fellow. He was abandoned by everybody. His tough life made him a brawler. One night he gets drunk and found himself lying in the middle of a road. A car is coming. It seems that his last hour has arrived. Is that car bringing him death or a new life? You are about to find out.
