The Lossen title[1]_edited.png

"Beneath every nightmare lies a dream"

 

In the dead of night an other-worldly visitor drags its hulking, hooded mass to the front door of 70 year old successful business woman Sylvia Cappleman, but this mythical Grim Reaper is not all it seems and so appears The Lossen, the Reaper's agent of death.
 

In the final moments of Sylvia's life, The Lossen discovers a complication with her passing, she hasn't fulfilled her dream.  The Lossen takes Sylvia on a journey to confront her lost dream and face the demons of her past, leading her to the very foundation of what caused her to drift from her heart’s desire.
