Four short prose stories of the modern day occult, bound together by the four elements. Four seperate lives share a single fate, interwoven in the greater picture. A News Anchor burning inside, devoured by his own guilt. A soldier discovering that the war is never over, even once the fighting is done. A relief worker trapped in a steel cage 30,000 miles above the earth. A priest clawing his way out of a pit, both physically and mentally. Four lives trapped in the fury of the elements, miles apart but connected just the same. A modern day tale of the shamanistic forces that mankind chooses to ignore, but so essential to life that they can never truly be forgotten.
