Valentina receives a letter with a gift, a heart shaped pendent, as she admires it in her reflection. Painting has a story to tell.
Listen, if stars are lit it means – there is someone who needs it. It means – someone wants them to be, that someone deems those specks of spit magnificent.

It means it is essential that every evening at least one star should ascend over the crest of the building.
