The Tiger Project.
OF THE LIGHT
it be like if someone - perhaps your older, wiser self - came back from
the future to try and save you from the mistakes you're about to make?
Was it a trick of the light, or is Josie really being haunted by her doppelganger? And if so, what is it trying to tell her and how can she make it disappear forever?
the awesome backdrop of auroras and other cosmic occurrences in the sky
above Tasmania, A Trick of the Light illustrates the value of being happy
with the decisions we make and the importance of knowing who we really
are. It is a witty and intelligent embrace of topical issues such as bullying,
relationships and sexuality - with a paranormal twist.
