TWO MEN AND A WOMAN. 800 YEARS ... IT ISN'T OVER WHEN IT'S OVER. It is 2050 in a cold town in northern Europe. The war has ended but the streets are dangerous. Three lovers, Stephen, Suzanna and Rokas, live under the shadow of the gun-king, Porphyrian, but are driven by their common history and unfinished business during an earlier age of darkness, the Cathar Inquisition of the 13th century. And between the dystopian worlds of the 13th and 21st centuries? ... Other times and other places, stories and sideways glances. Because the past is never past. Lives loop. The direction of travel is circular. What do we bring with us when we arrive? What is progress? What is death?
