Mediums emerge all over America and Europe. The quest begins for Summerland, the longing for ghosts.
But two men also play their part in this drama. In Atlantic City, on June 18th 1922, they are wanted back at the hotel. Someone from "beyond" would like to speak with them...
An exploration of mediums, fakery, magic, hysteria, shadows, cabinets, and an extraordinary friendship.
A work devised by Louise Radinger and puppeteer Angeliki Polatou, based on a true story.
