المتحف​

The Museum

حُكم عليه بالإعدام بالحقنة القاتلة بعد تنفيذه لعمليّة إطلاق نار في متحف للفنّ المعاصر راح ضحيتها تسعٌ وأربعونَ طفلاً ومعلّمتهم. لم تنجح خطَتهُ يومها بأن يلقى حتفه برصاص الشرطة في داخل المتحف، اعتُقِلَ، خضع للتحقيق، حُكم بالإعدام وأنتَظَر سبع سنين إلى أن حُدِدَ موعدُ تنفيذ الإعدام.  

قبل اسبوعٍ من موعدِ إعدامهِ يُصرُّ على لقاء المحقق الذي حقق في قضيتِه، ليقنعه أن يكون آخر شخصٍ يلتقي به ويدعوه ليتناول معه العشاء الأخير.

في الليلةِ الأخيرةِ يلتقي الرجلان وحدهما داخلَ غرفةٍ مغلقة في مبنى تنفيذ العقوبةِ الكبرى، يسمحُ هذا اللقاء لكلاهما أن يخوضوا العاباً خطيرة، العاباً لا تُلعَبُ إلا في ليلةٍ أخيرة، يبحثان في داخِلِها عن معنى الموت المشتهى.

He was sentenced to death by lethal injection, after committing a mass shooting attack in a museum of contemporary art. 49 children and their teacher were killed. His original plan, to be killed by the police inside the museum, has failed. He was arrested, interrogated, and sentenced to death. For the execution to be carried out, he had to wait for seven years.

A week before the execution, he insists on meeting the detective who investigated his case. He convinces him to be the last person he meets and to join him for his last supper.

At the final evening the two men meet alone in a locked room in the building where the capital punishment will be carried out.

This meeting allows them both to play risky and manipulative games. Games that can only be played at a last night. Games in which they search for the meaning of the death they desire.
