What does... A prostitute, A corrupt businessman, and A disfigured young woman Have in common with a mysterious, old homeless man who carries a green suitcase?
The old man comes into people's lives because it is important for them to experience the visions that he is somehow able to show them--visions that even he doesn't understand.
But whoever he connects with will go through a transformation that will change the course of their life, for better or worse.
The old man has no memory of who he is or even what the suitcase holds.
But one day he will find out all about his own secret and dark past...
This story is magical realism, realistic with paranormal elements, a mystery that needs to be solved, and a man and woman who will finally realize that they were meant to come into each other's lives and remain forever.
