THROUGH A GLASS, DARKLY

by Jesper W. Nielsen

synopsis

Cecilie, 13 years old, is seriously ill and spends most of her time in bed, daydreaming about Sebastiano, whom she fell in love with on a trip to South Europe the summer before. One night, a weird little man called Ariel enters her room, and claims he is an angel. They enter a pact; to tell each other about the secrets of heaven and earth.
