Overview
The Iraq War draws Justin Caden, twenty-three, into a dark psychological abyss. Home in Mid-America, he confronts the life he had left behind. He wanders in reflection, introspection, and surreal encounters. Combat episodes emerge in recollections and nightmares. Fragmented stream-of-consciousness plagues his days. The only compassion he feels is the love of his Grandma, Madeline Guillaume, and his relationship with an African-Native American girl, Kim Atoka. Reading his deceased grandpa, Joseph Guillaume's memoire, Beyond Acadia, inspires Justin on a journey of self-discovery, destination Chebec, Nova Scotia, the birthplace of his grandparents. On the road he meets and hears the voices of grassroots Americans, poets, and a storyteller. He participates in a tornado disaster and rescues a runaway teenage girl. In Portland Maine, he boards the ferry that takes him across the Bay of Fundy to Chebec. In Chebec, he befriends an Acadian girl, Stacy Cottreau.
