The Panicking Fly


The ancient Greeks had two words for time, chronos and kairos.  Chronos means chronological. Kairos is a time lapse, a moment of indeterminate time in which everything happens, a supreme moment.  It is pregnant time.  Different then fate it is a moment you must be prepared for, if not you will miss it. The Panicking Fly spans, Cuba, Germany, and Canada and tells the story of six different people as they crash into their Kairos moments and each other. A therapist for lottery winners abruptly leaves her life in search of a lost love and the greatest orgasm. A journalist following a controversial motivational speaker and his disciples impregnates a mysterious foreign woman and together they receive the most mystifying results of a first ultra sound causing them to question everything they thought they knew. And in the middle of a giant field, a grieving farmer and a teenage girl terrified of beginning her adult life struggle with defying gravity and the possibility of change.

The Panicking Fly grapples with the questions of how connected we all are, how you tell the story of your life, and what happens to a fly that is along for a ride when the car suddenly crashes?
