Where soul is reduced to a genre of food or music .The mundane status quo of taxes car notes and cubicles is no longer sustainable from within. A new paradigm, a personal heroic myth is needed to address old questions. Some men volunteer for the journey. Others are forced by events beyond their control to trust a part of themselves they have never known. Both receive assistance from supernatural agencies that come to their aid in time of crisis and aid them in their quest for redemption This is a quantum journey into the inner life of one such ordinary man when the shards of today’s nightmare of shattered dreams become the compost of tomorrows vision of hope in new life.
