Overview

Since Tess’ restless dreams have made it impossible to sleep or study, she has returned to Colorado for treatment by best diagnostic hospital in the nation.

For months, Tess has experienced vivid dreams that have taken her to the beaches of Rio de Janeiro, the parades and parties of Carnival, and to the statue of Cristo Redentor perched on the city’s mountaintop. Her nighttime travels have also brought home souvenirs like sand in her bed and purple, fingerprint bruises circling her wrists like bracelets.

Now, living under a haze due to the pharmaceuticals prescribed for her insomnia and anxiety, Tess believes the combined dosages might be responsible for her increased mental aptitudes—like her ability to speak fluent Portuguese without any lessons and speed read books by touching their spines. Her new psychoanalyst assigned to the case focuses on Tess’ childhood diaries and finds insight into her troubled patient’s mind and past, but not before Tess falls deeper into this other world.
What Tess can’t figure out is why she continues to follow the unnamed little girl that she keeps encountering in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro.
The Conduit questions the possibilities of other realities and explores the powerful bond between mothers and daughters—despite the separation of time and space.
