Ages ago, in June of 1690, a peaceful European island colony of Kaventhe thrives. The small island village in the Atlantic has been governed by generations of autocracy. Savov Keller, a devout, respected and passionate leader operates Kaventhe with the systematic rules established by 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 viciously end the island's settlement.

(Current Day)
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 rationality 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.

He must confront the forces that control his life in order to get back on track. Fortunately, all the spirits that surround him are not malicious and the battle of good versus evil ensues.
