Abstract:

When young Marcy arrived at the St. Francis Sanitarium, a horrific experience had left her without any memories - without an identity. In an effort to learn more about the mysterious adolescent, her caretakers put her under hypnosis. But the treatment throws Marcy further inside herself, into the world of the Miniature Man, gatekeeper to her past. Julian Papp was well aware of the life he lost before he came to St. Francis. He was a chess prodigy, unbeatable because of the level of concentration he could achieve during a game. Epileptic seizures brought an end to his success, leaving him in a deep depression and lashing out at others. When the two meet, Julian finds a new obsession to match his passion for chess - curing Marcy. Together, they push the boundaries of memory and form a bond beyond their understanding.
