A Passage to Home
Billy Hobbs is a successful dentist and a devout family man living a good life in the suburbs of Denver Colorado. All is well until a semi-tractor trailer loses control on a patch of black ice, ending the beating hearts of Laura, Molly and Mandy Hobbs, Billy’s wife and two daughters. His heart is shattered. He is alone and practically inconsolable. His life begins to spin out of control.
During his darkest hours, he finds encouraging notes and mysterious bottles of blue nectar that contain remedial powers. He soon learns about an entity called ‘Fate’ which controls dominion beyond the comprehension of mankind. Billy is offered an incredible opportunity; one that would allow him to live a life he once cherished, but not one without sacrifices. He struggles with the plausibility of Fate’s existence and purpose, but understands that the rewards of such an offering could be tremendous.
For closure, Billy seeks an encounter with the semi driver, but is intercepted by a mugger who confronts Billy with a switchblade knife. Billy is left to die on the street in shadowy neighborhood. But as luck would have it, he is rescued by the Johnsons, a humble family who nourishes him back to health, both physically and spiritually.
Just when things are looking up, Billy learns that the mugger who attacked him with a knife dies from wounds suffered during the fight. Billy undergoes vigilante and murder charges. He is arrested and endures courtroom drama. Although Billy’s assertions revolve around self-defense and the fact that he was actually unaware that the mugger’s wounds were severe enough to cause death, prosecuting attorneys provide a full court press during a heated legal battle.
Alas, Billy’s new friends, the Johnsons, begin their own detective work and contrive a plan to unearth the truth. The wheels of justice move forward and Billy is acquitted of all charges brought against him. His name is finally cleared which propel his objective to a reassuring path and to a new, yet familiar world as promised by ‘Fate’.
Ages ago, in June of 1690, a peaceful European island colony (Kaventhe) thrives. The small island village in the Atlantic Seas has been governed by generations of autocracy. Savov Keller, a devout, respected, and passionate leader operates Kaventhe with the systematic rules established by his gritty forefathers who were determined to see the island function efficiently. Unbeknownst to Savov, an invasion of belligerent soldiers ruled by Thad Keller, Savov’s non-conforming son who could not accept the unusual beliefs and practices indoctrinated by Kaventhe’s forefathers, would suddenly and viciously end the island’s settlement and propel a legion of angry kindred spirits.
While Martin Keller paints in his den, his creativity flows from a cryptic source. His newly annexed talent transcends into results far beyond his own abilities. He searches his soul for a rational explanation, but rationalism seems out of reach. He loses consciousness while he paints and this phenomenon only darkens the waters of logic. Soon he realizes that his paintings, thoughts, and dreams take him away from his normal world and into an altered state which if full of deception and chaos.
Unaware of the events that guided the spirits of his European ancestry to his modern day mayhem, Martin begins to doubt his sanity, wondering if he has inherited the same gene which caused Joe Keller, his father, to brutally murder his mother twenty-six years ago. Reluctantly, he visits his anguished father who, unable to convince authorities of his spiritual influences, has been institutionalized for over two decades for his wife’s murder. Martin resists the validity of a spiritual bloodline until his troubles intensify and his actions put those around him in danger.
Martin confides in his fiancée, Janet, about his premonitions and bizarre experiences. Unable to believe Martin’s assertions, Janet fights with her own convictions and her desire not to be separated from the man she loves. Janet channels her efforts and convinces Martin to see Dr. Cameron, a psychiatrist who believes Martin is suffering from schizophrenia and night terrors, a dangerous form of sleepwalking.
Under the watchful eye of Mrs. Baxter, the mysterious old lady who lives next door, Martin’s problems continue. His den becomes more alive, his paintings become more mysterious and the declaration of his father becomes more credible. Martin is determined more than ever that his tribulations are spiritual, not psychological as Janet and Dr. Cameron maintain.
Martin continues to fight his inner demons and is questioned by authorities as a result of two murders of his co-workers. His work begins to suffer as vice-president of Global Financial, a full service stock brokerage based in Miami Florida.
As Joe suggests, Martin turns to the church that he had once attended as a child. There, he meets Father Sherman, a Catholic Priest who at first finds Martin’s assertions too incredible, but ultimately vows to help free Martin from his torment. To confirm his belief in Martin, Father Sherman visits Joe Keller at Bellevue. Joe convinces Father Sherman that en evil bloodline is alive and well and breathes in the Keller family tree.
Unbeknownst to Martin, Mrs. Baxter prepares for battle within the confines of Martin’s den, a vortex which connects Martin to his ancestry. To her surprise, however, Mrs. Baxter underestimates the goodness within the Keller ancestry. Martin’s efforts to prevent kindred spirits from wreaking further terror are his final actions.
The next morning, Janet awaits in her obstetrician’s examination room, waiting for the official results, unaware that only smoldering remnants of Martin’s house remain, a house that she expected to live her new life. With a puzzled expression, the doctor informs her that an impatient four month old baby brews safely inside her womb.
