Henry is a writer and recluse. His heroine, Lumina, fights for her life in a papery world. When a woman moves in next door interrupting Henry’s solitude, his story begins to take on a life of its own. Pages fly, a woman is drowned, memories catch fire, love burns. Discovering Henry’s writings and intrigued by Lumina’s desperate plight the woman next door challenges Henry to face the truth of his stories. Reality blurs with fiction and their lives are changed forever.
A tale of light, love and courage, as two worlds meet in the mind of one man.
