The Duel

Inês Viegas Oliveira

In a cold and distant country two men argue. They’ve been arguing for so long, they don’t remember why they started it in the first place. They gave up on finding a real solution, and to solve it once and for all they decide to fight a duel. Back to back, as in all duels, each men starts to count one hundred steps before turning around to shoot.

1, 2, 3, 4… There they go, moving apart. We follow one of them but at some point we ask ourselves: where is he going?

A book about fights, conflicts, wars, but mostly about peace.
