Connie’s life turns upside down after an altercation with the landlord. Life events seem to conspire against Connie to deny her of the perfect life she craves so badly. It seems to Connie that everyone around her has achieved a perfect life, everyone except her. Is it her fate or is it the folklore and evil magic of the island that is preventing her from achieving the perfect life .
An old man with a crooked smile appears to help Connie when she is least expecting it. But who and what is he, does he really exist and has he really helped or hindered her further?
Connie must battle tragedy and loss to try to grip onto her very fragile sense of reality. Will Connie realise before it’s too late that the perfect life she craves is unattainable and that the best she can hope for is a few perfect days in a lifetime of imperfection… just like the rest of humanity.
