Storyline

In three time periods through eight languages, six faces will convey a history of control beyond themselves: somewhere outside of time, a vaudeville prophet makes a strange prediction; in the Middle Ages, a wise man and a young maiden trade riddles in the forest, before the maiden kills him with berries that may, or may not, be cursed; and in the present day, the same man and woman argue over dinner at a fancy restaurant, angering their waitress. Meanwhile, an awkward teenager being bullied by another boy with tales of torture, attempts to profess his affection to her with his own vision of salvation... Written by Anonymous
