Cora, a dispirited working wife, struggles to maintain a normal routine after the consequences of a domestic atrocity. Engaging in a series of emotionally detached encounters, she experiences a confusing psychological connection with the strange and elusive Van. Then echoes from the past threaten to derail her tenuous state of mind, and Cora becomes increasingly dislocated from her surroundings.
Is she going insane, or is it something else?
The Watcher Self is about what remains when the layers of sanity are gradually stripped away, and what may or may not be real.
