Description

Col is an ordinary guy. He likes skinny women with big boobs who don't want too much from him. He goes out to the pub with his mates on weekends and works as a mechanic. When his girlfriend cheats on him with his best mate, it all disintegrates. Going through the motions of existence in a drab, grey city, it is then that his world explodes into what he fears is complete insanity. The root of this story was written thousands of years ago by a pivotal woman in our history. Despised and reviled, her message was twisted through the years. She comes to Colum to ask for help and for him to do that, he must first understand why. Will he go nuts or can he break through? On the journey we meet colourful characters: Col's Ma who could talk for Ireland, a blind shaman teaching physics in a Mongolian yurt, Merl, his wife and their incontinent dog, and the oracle of Delphi among others. Weaving a rich tale through layers of history and into our future, mixing sacred and profane, light and dark, sex and science. Twining nightmares and dreams, unravelling lies and dogma; to see that which is beyond any drug induced fantasy.
