Notes from a Cannibalist

Notes from a Cannibalist

Would you engage in the ultimate taboo to stay alive?

*

Ireland 1847, the country devastated by famine and emigration.

*

In a desperate bid to escape and build a new life for himself, one man kills his brother and engages in the ultimate taboo to keep himself alive so he can make it to the boat.

*

He escapes, travelling on a coffin ship to the New World.

*

On the boat over, he shares a bunk with a Jesuit who dies on the crossing. The escapee takes on the identity of the priest.

*

A new man in a new world, he has his whole life in front of him.

*

However, the ghosts of the dead begin to whisper within him. It isn’t long before he is forced to question his very identity.

*

Sent forth by the Jesuits as a missionary to Latin America, he finds himself among the Gaurani, an ancient and native tribe. Far from educating the natives, it is they who will educate him…

*

Inducted into the ways of ritualism, soon the ‘priest’ is pulled irrevocably towards the ancient ways…

*

Torn between love for a native woman and a powerful foe, the priest faces a brutal choice: embrace his true nature and grow stronger, or die.

*

There is no destiny only will.

*

SOME MEN EAT. SOME ARE EATEN.
