Charlie Walker is an exceptionally intelligent yet lonely boy, whose life is profoundly altered when his parents bring home Timmy, his new baby brother. Timmy suffers from EB, an incurable illness that causes him to receive horrible wounds from the lightest touch. Charlie is devastated at the thought of the grim prospects little Timmy faces in the future. One evening, he meets a stranger who claims he can help Charlie find a cure for his brother’s illness. Despite believing the man is nothing more than a hallucination caused by the onset of schizophrenia – an illness that runs in his family – Charlie welcomes the company and comfort he provides.
The man starts teaching Charlie about biosciences in order to find the cure for EB and save Timmy’s life. When unexplained events start to occur, Charlie questions whether his secret tutor is a hallucination after all. As time passes, what were initially exciting lessons begin to draw him deeper into the mysterious world of Near-Death Experiences, Souls and the Afterlife, until he is forced to make a decision that will alter the course of his life forever…
‘Lord Soul’ explores intriguing questions that have fascinated humans throughout history, such as what is consciousness, what happens to the mind when the body dies and what is the true purpose of life.
