YOUR GUIDE TO OUR WORLD...

TIME GOES BY. DAYS TURN TO NIGHTS AND WEEKS INTO MONTHS, AND MONTHS INTO YEARS. THE DAYDREAMER DREAMS ON, LIVING IN HIS FANTASIES. IN THE REAL WORLD, NOTHING MUCH CHANGES EITHER. FOR YEARS, HE SPENDS HIS DAYS ALONE, DREAMING. HIS MOTHER WOULD APPEAR BRIEFLY BEFORE RUNNING OFF TO SOMEWHERE THE BOY NEVER QUITE KNEW AND HE WOULD FIND HIMSELF ALONE AGAIN, SOMETIMES FOR DAYS, SOMETIMES WEEKS AT A TIME.

ONE MORNING, HE WALKS INTO THE KITCHEN TO FIND HIS MOTHER WEARILY POURING A CUP OF COFFEE, HER PURSE STILL ON HER SHOULDER - CLEARLY HAVING JUST RETURNED FROM WORK.

"MOTHER," HE SAYS IN GREETING, WITHOUT EMOTION. SHE GLANCES UP WITH A TIRED SMILE, BUT SAYS NOTHING.
