The answers are somewhere in the space between image and reality, memory and dream- somewhere in the distance that separates our aspirations from our identities.A lonely political idealist dreams of revolution: will she ever change the world? Or is she doomed to a mundane life of coffee, misdemeanors, and frustrated crushes?In a skewed post-colonial dystopia, a half-breed falls afoul of the cultural purity police. Which part of her identity must she betray?When theres just too damn much going on in your head, will the physician or the mystic offer you relief?
