Its grand façade was adorned with gleaming marble columns and golden accents, a testament to the city's love for art. Among the gallery's treasures was a masterpiece known as "The Midnight Serenade," a painting of unparalleled beauty and rarity that had captivated art enthusiasts for generations.

But one fateful night, "The Midnight Serenade" vanished from the gallery's hallowed halls. The heist, audacious and meticulously planned, left the art world in shock and the gallery owner, Vincent Delacroix, in a state of despair.
