In the courtyard of her father’s harem, Amira forebodingly awaits the arrival of her betrothed, Abu Aneza, an old sheikh of a desert tribe pivotal to the safe passage of her father’s caravans through the desert. On this fateful day, Amira is saved from the dreaded marriage by the surreptitious arrival of a man from the Divan of the Sun, as predicted by her recently deceased mother in a dream. Richard, the stranger who is no stranger, echoes up from her dream, unleashing the dormant supernatural powers passed down to her through the centuries via her grandfather, Farud’d-Din Attar, and the mystical Simurgh of Persian lore.
Amira travels with Richard on the Ship of Souls from the Persian Gulf to the Land of Hind seeking liberation and reunion. Through her clairvoyant powers, she flies on the wings of the Simurgh––that timeless being from beyond the world sea that flaps its wings and manifests many from the One. Sailing on the Sea of all Being she travels––nonlinearly––in multiple dimensions shifting her point of view as she seamlessly transforms from one facet of Being to the next, beyond time… Where Dreams Coincide.
