Expressions of inner turmoil caused by love lost come to life in the surreal dreamscape of this story. Emotions powerful enough to affect not only the human condition but the workings of the natural world play out on a hauntingly beautiful remote mountain top. Sometimes the desire to travel through time and space to revisit or correct a wrong can be powerful enough to manifest that potential.
