“In my search for the holy, my heart burns. Against my wishes, this will kill me. My current life is a grave painted by my prayers. My prayers burn trough flesh and bone, my prayers are holy. O`hear how I pray for this life, that I hold holy. “
Jean Dark is a journey of a woman who is driven by emotional scopes from hope to despair, revisiting past scenes that she`s lived through that are captured in her physical self and running through it. A ritual before she leaves that life behind the burning stake ahead.
