Synopsis

In this magical tale, a young man finds himself trapped by an existence in the cloud forests of the eastern Andes. He spends his days eking out a living from the shrouded land, fearful of the relentless mist and of the nightmares that haunt him in his cave dwelling. He wonders about the old Inca trail that passes through the valley and where it leads to--he has only heard rumours of a mountain pass farther up, and the thought of it terrorizes him. Through a series of bizarre encounters with animals that appear out of the mist, he comes face-to-face with an ominous truth, and he is forced to make the most important decision of his life. Told with all the magical realism of a short work by Isabel Allende or Gabriel Garcia Marquez, this story transports the reader to a world at once tragic and hopeful.
