With her departure from the formidable slums, Serafina is seduced with a poisonous delusion: the opportunity of a different life. A deep yearning is unlocked as Jason inevitably comes to represent hope and change. This initial harmony is short-lived however, as Jason catapults deeper into a creative cocoon.
