Ethnic tensions and hostility threaten Samir’s destiny, and undesirable advances from an unscrupulous dean threaten the steadiness Cassie so desperately seeks. Tragedy looms huge at the horizon.

Interwoven with poignant parallels to the undying ethos of Shakespeare’s tragedies, this is often the story of the darkish fact that reigns whilst distrust and hate overcome humanity and love.
