What if your only escape from death was to meet it half way?
If the voices called on YOU?
Brought you into The Bends of time where all faith is lost to those who wait. Your etchings hold the secrets to guide them on their way.
Yet, there will be no safe passage if evil finds you first and you have no toll to pay.
Enter the mind of a peculiar boy who gains passport to one of the ‘thin places’ between life and death. In this realm of tilted memories, guided by the pages of his journal and the voices that summon him, he reclaims his broken bits to discover the truth behind an early death marking. Only then can he realize the nature of his nightmares and the malign source behind his suffering so that he alone can save the living world from a cataclysmic end or die again trying.
