In this lecture we present a non-injective analytic local diffeomorphism of $\mathbb{R}^3$ such that the pre-image of every affine hyperplane is connected. This disproves a conjecture proposed by S. Nollet and F. Xavier in 2002. The talk is based on collaborations with F. Braun from Universidade Federal de São Carlos and L.R.G. Dias from Universidade Federal de Uberlândia.
