    • Synopsis
    • What could be better than knowing your future? And what could be worse? A love-filled childhood abruptly ends when catastrophe descends. One that the child had foreseen yet failed to act upon. A 40-year-old man hides in a self-made prison of mundane life. The film opens as he finally becomes resolved to dare gaze at, and come to terms with someone's totally different life, his unthinkable past. He turbulently sheds the cobwebs to find that light and happiness has been waiting for him. And this potentially cold cinematic knock on life's door becomes a defiantly uplifting work of art.
