Talented and driven Indigo Wade is entrenched in the rigors of her frenzied life. Hemmed in by disillusionment with her engineering career, the expectations of a tyrannical mother and bloodless matches with her lover, Reed she yearns for a life of her own design. As she struggles through her dark night of the soul, a rum-soaked voice from her childhood pulls her back to her island home from which she has long been disconnected to face the father whose instincts capsize notions of kinship and trust. Old wounds are ripe for picking and the charismatic, wily Capo Wade unveils his own agenda for survival that could forever sever their already frayed bonds. What begins as a reluctant trip home precipitates a transformative journey of exploration, discovery and affirmation. Balanced on the threshold of two worlds, neither of which she fully belongs, Indigo is both heiress and outsider to the battle-pitted legacy of women who are more strangers than sisters and the wounded trajectory of their lives. Shepherded by the sage guidance of her Aunt, Indigo must face questions that help her navigate her own truths. Who are we when stripped of easy monikers: daughter; father, sister, friend. Can she steer her father toward a place of redemption and at what cost? Will she choose the familiarity of Reed or lose her inhibitions with the beguiling, unconventional Elijah? Set in New Orleans and Jamaica, Journey to the Land of Look Behind illustrates what’s left amidst the wreckage of a woman abandoned by a father who navigates relationships like a chess grandmaster. From the intoxicating bacchanal of New Orleans' speakeasies to the grottoes of Port Antonio, hers is a journey discovery. Backed by a soundtrack fraught with a slow simmering agony served with a sliver of hope, Journey to the Land of Look Behind begs the question: “Who are we in the deepest recesses of ourselves when unencumbered by history and expectations?”
