Are we subject to our instincts or masters of them? A young Muslim sculptor, dedicated to her faith and to her husband, must navigate the perils of her own identity when she falls in love with an American artist. Oh, and she has superpowers - ones that threaten the entire world and her own soul. This supernatural epic spans centuries as we follow the variegated lives of those playing host to the WYRM - an evolutionary anomaly that bestows (or infects) its hosts with certain powers. Powers that seem to keep death at an arm’s length.
