Overview

The Staggering Depths of Blissfulness is a story about love, the loss of innocence and wonder. When Emseeaye, a young man whose life is marked by alternating events of staggering beauty and anguished tragedy, is uprooted from his simple Laotian village to attend college in New York, everything that he believes to be true about life suddenly comes into question. Though his assimilation into Western life leaves him confused and directionless, under the tutelage of a blind man with extraordinary perceptive abilities, Emseeaye learns to harness the power of the "three dominions", hauntingly beautiful sensory experiences that blur the boundaries between reality and dreams. When Emseeaye's obsession with the three dominions threatens to destroy his delicately woven relationship with his girlfriend Melina, he must race to unravel the secrets behind the "three dominions". Succeed, and he will re-discover the joy of a previous life. Fail, and he will forever lose Melina.
