Path Station, on this August morning, will witness again all that defines human sorrow — the heart’s trajectory, when love’s inception falls to irredeemable passion, which then seeks freedom from itself through destruction.
Soon Clara Brooks will seize her opportunity. But Michael Perez, has already gazed at this beautiful stranger, feeling he has always loved her across an eternal rift — that all paths have united them.
Clara’s waiting is over. Freedom from love’s torment arrives with the 08:07 to Newark. Her heart stops on the tracks; seconds later, as a breeze blows, Michael’s darkens as love’s lodged arrow becomes irredeemably, unforgettably damaged.
