How far would you go for family? How far would you go for freedom? How far would you go for power? How far would you go for love? What would change your mind?
In the wake of Nana's death, her beloved Lee, a national hero and iconic inventor, vanished without trace. Separately, Yaya, a talented teenage olympic swimmer, also disappeared: no trace.
A brave but distraught young soldier distrusted the national story of his Grand Pa Lee's disappearance (now presumed dead), so he defies his military command and escapes in search of proof of a deeper mystery. He must solve it if he is to survive in time to recover his grandfather dead or alive.
In this daring venture - a rollicking pause-resister with crisp psychological intrigue, waves of deep emotions, and rich splashes of humor - we are gripped by a compelling story, a dynamic exploration, and revelation of the promiscuity of fear, the cruelty of truth, the futility of power, and the breadth and depth of an unrivaled love.
While through to the end this story compels us to confront our most burning personal question, it inevitably raises a more curious one: Are we ever in search of truth, or simply a more appealing lie that we can comfortably live with even when it can never pass the test of time?
