Cari Q experienced trauma and loss early in life and was forced to grow up fast. Her mother died on her 4th birthday, as a result she was neglected as her family mourned the loss. Cari quickly developed a love for travel and a thirst for obscurity in efforts to dull the pain, and keep the nightmares of her loss at bay. Byzantium is a reflection of Cari’s past represented in a dream that puts her at odds with her future potential self, eventually leading to a shaded catharsis in which Cari is forced to accept and embrace her past in order to realize her potential.
I loved it! Reminds me of Andrew Bird. 🙂
