See all stories.
After the death of his sister, Paul Prince embarks on an ill-fated journey of self-discovery that takes him on a dangerous descent into madness. Unable to determine what is real and what lies within his imagination, Paul is forced to acknowledge his failures, question his own morality, and face a pair of unsettlingly insightful ghosts as he drifts farther and farther away from reality and into the treacherous depths of his own mind. His journey takes him to the barren deserts of Afghanistan, the eerie halls of a Veterans Administration hospital, and eventually to the brightly lit Sin City of Las Vegas, where he must face, once and for all, the demons hiding within himself.
