“The story was born of lost, regret, introspection, identity, life, death, cycles, bonds and self-discovery but more importantly a promise. Shanti and Reno both reflect those concepts through their own journeys. For instance, the curses Shanti and Reno bear are personifications of their plights.”

-J.D. Woodson
