Our first Graphic Noval “falling Grounds” of the series ‘the way out‘ will be available online or in the bookstore at the end of 2016.
Plot ‘Falling grounds’
The story occurs at the end of Ceausescu’s rain when Romania was undergoing strong repression.
Prof. Vlad, a theoretical physicist at the University of Bucharest, is a true believer of communist principles because it promotes secularism and Darwinism which Vlad considers to be rooted in scientific truths.
This is in strong contrast with his lovely wife “Tamara” that is a fervent believer of the doctrines of the Orthodox Church, and a true defender of “sola scriptura”.
His good old friend the retired, national respected and seemingly crazy Prof. Novac is a fervent anticommunist that dreams of the creation of a harmonious society, and has a deep inner conviction that we as humans have the moral duty to find the correct principles on which such society should be built.
Novac assumes that those principals are apparent in Nature but that as long we’re driven by our animalistic nature no solution will be found; he therefore demands Vlad to investigate the whole issue and assures him that finding those principles will also lead to mind-boggling technological revolutions that will be beneficial for a sustainable and just society world-society.
Vlad is not in for all this because for him communism embodies all this.
Vlad’s dialectic materialist ideas start crumbling when he realizes that the scientific method, as it stands today, doesn’t allow him to go to the bottom of things.
He believes, to the horror of his wife, that science just as religion is empty at the bottom. All this changes when Vlad, under the coincidental but watchful eye of special agent (secret police) “PREDA” is assigned with operation “BUG”, finds an article on the street floor with as title “THE WAY OUT”.
Vlad realizes that Novac could be right so they decide to invite the Belgian scholar and inventor “Sally”, of which there was mention in the article, to help them out.
When PREDA realize that Novac is now one else than his school teacher of long time ago things become very personal for PREDA.
The arrival of the Sally in their midst increases Preda’s suspicion, he suspects that Sally is an CIA agent that wants to spread capitalist ideas and help to overthrow the Ceausescu regime. Preda is convinced that Novac is behind all this.
Preda is convinced!
This is not only his opportunity to come to terms with ‘Novac’ but also the perfect way to realize his own dream of becoming nation’s true communist hero by cracking down this presumably dangerous plot.
