“The main character is Anna. Her father is a train builder who died suddenly. The prototype of this hero is Viktor Gassiev, a Russian inventor. Gassiev, at the age of 11, struggled with the idea of creating a perpetual motion machine, but, like many inventors, he was eventually defeated, since the idea of \u200b\u200ba perpetual motion machine contradicts the fundamental law of physics – the law of conservation of energy“, reads the description of the project.
