This book explores the hidden power of the mind by telling the story of a soldier who is able to relive the past through recurring memories of his deceased wife. Based in the post-apocalyptic future wrought with war and desolation, he is forced by scientist to travel into the past in order to kill a man of interest. All the while, the soldier's estranged brother living in the present day tries to find him and to understand the vision of a strange cathedral that they unknowingly share. Inspired by Chris Marker’s film, La Jetée, this book and film titled, Cathedral, also applies this often neglected technique of storytelling using narration, sound effects and animated photos. This dynamic method of still-image narrative known as 'photo-roman' doesn't just tell a story in a new and interesting way but helps emphasize the lasting power a single image can have on a person's memory.
