It is so easy in this frantic and modern world to lose sight of our priorities, to think that money and worldly possessions are the be-all and end-all of our great existence. Sometimes we can hurt everyone we love and destroy ourselves in the pursuit of these things. And sometimes it takes a tragedy to make us see the light.
Navigating themes of self-identity, religion and racism, this story guides us through one man's life of debauchery and spiritual decline until he reaches the crisis point and is forced to review the way he has lived. Is it possible to truly change? To reclaim your spiritual purity? And when newfound faith is put to the test, which version of yourself will win out?
