Synopsis

Jim is a witty writer and brilliant comic book artist. He is the creator of Captain Penumbra, the superhero from the lunar realm where light and darkness merge. After a thousand letters Gwynne is finally going to meet him in person.

But leaving her home in Ireland Gwynne approaches Jim slowly, visually savouring the America that he has written about and asking complete strangers what image of Jim they form by reading the letters he has sent her. Gradually she circles closer to Jim's personal realm, meeting his family and visiting his childhood haunts.

When Gwynne reaches Arizona Jim's current whereabouts are finally revealed. Passing the gates of the State Penitentiary she is about to witness the disturbing reality of Jim's present existence. She finally encounters the convicted killer she has befriended awaiting his fate on Death Row, in the half light between life and death.
