What would it take to get you to leave it all behind?
In the summer of 2009, Alice Pleasance, mother of a fallen 9-11 police officer, makes a surprising birthday wish for a dreamy dark-eyed young man to notice her just one more time in her life. It’s all in fun while she blows out the candles and returns home with her gifts including an insomnia cure from a Korean herb shop.
Later, Alice awakens years younger and racing to prevent her son Luke from going to the Towers only to find she has not gone back in time but has arrived in an alternate New York City under a vibrant red sky.
Alice’s nocturnal travels quickly fill with new friendships and involvements that force her to face her husband’s involvement in her travels. Red Sky may have started as an innocent time-out from tending to her surviving son, but it’s is getting harder to leave since young dark-eyed Hoon Park has asked her to stay.
It may only take one lifetime to grow older but you may need two to grow up.
