“There he would find respite from his tempestuous soul. There would he find heroism, glory, and eternity; there, too, would he find his mother.”
Ehud Peled’s philosophical fantasy tells the timeless fable of Elam – the lone prince, the fearless warrior, the tenacious hunter – as he journeys the ancient landscapes of a mystical land in search of the mysterious serpent ring and the location of his kidnapped mother. Through the eyes of Elam we get a unique, insightful look on humanity, as the pure hero comes face to face with riddling merchants, fabled heroes, and fiery fortunetellers that ultimately guide him towards eternity – and the meaning of life.
