When a beautiful red-haired girl appears to him in a haunting dream, Keon is perplexed. Why does she arouse him so? Why does she persist with her promises, her teasing laughter? She seems so real, reminds him of someone from long ago.
Yet it is more than just a girl that Keon cannot understand. According to the calendar on his wall, he must be close to a hundred and fifty years old. Yet, when the girl from his dreams appears every month at the new and at the full moon, he feels so alive, so excited, so aroused... And when he travels to town, the girl at the local pub, the one he is attracted to in the Session Band, she looks surprisingly similar to the girl in his dreams. What’s real and what’s not he just can’t put his finger on.
In time, Keon comes to wonder if he is a ghost haunted by a ghost himself. But if that is correct, if he must come to grips with this fact, then why can’t he sleep like the others in the graveyard? And, why does the beautiful red-haired girl point to the ash grove behind his ancient home each time she disappears in a puff of smoke and laughter?
