Born In The Year Of The Hare
Spit out by the Maelstrom the awkward journey of a permanent alien Tai, a sleepwalking samurai, lost in the swirl of events around him. Chaos, carnage and history. He’s saved, but somehow everything in life passes him by. Mothers, fathers, brothers, friends. Fighters. Sunbathing on virtual galaxies. A peaceful, idyllic relationship in Oslo. Life as a tourist in Cambodia. Yearning for his girlfriend. It’s difficult, deciding what’s more real, thus worth being made part of his own life.
