Sins of the Father - Episode 1
When the trusty ship, Reality is lured across Fantasy’s virtual horizon and is shipwrecked on her treacherous rocks, the shores of the Promised Land offer sanctuary to them that dare to believe.
Salem is the realm where faith is the passport to enter its gates and faith is the visa to remain its citizen.
Faith is the currency that will buy you what you are looking for.
The only rule here is: ‘Believe it to receive it.’
Just check out Miller’s story. He starts out on life’s journey, walking a little to close to fantasy’s horizon and succumbing to her tempting escapism.
Miller emerges from his childhood as a dysfunctional teenager, who struggles to cope with his uneasy alliance with life by escaping into a virtual world of make believe.
As his life turns the corner towards adulthood he begins to feel increasingly vulnerable. The once impenetrable gates of his paradise garden are now succumbing to the forces of the real world and Miller discovers that his virtual joy is beginning to desert him.
One fateful day, Miller’s parents receive an urgent telegram at their home in the States. They make a mercy dash to England and to the bedside of Miller’s badly injured grandmother.
During his stay, Miller discovers an ancient animal skin tent and erects it on the shores of a lake in the grounds of his ancestral home. During the night he is tormented by a persistent dream.
It has come to light that he is wanted for his part in the killing of a great number of innocent people in a far off land.
The terrified juvenile hides in dread as the avengers of blood begin to close their net.
His stifled cries come to the ears of Salamaguchi, a heroic champion of justice.
Miller is awoken by a great light and sees a figure riding across the waters of the lake in a chariot of fire.
Salamaguchi draws up by the tent and finds Miller suffocating with fear under his bedding. The shining hero comforts him and confides with him that he has come to take Miller’s unbearable guilt upon his own shoulders.
His fears subside as Salamaguchi gathers him up in the folds of his garments and carries him from the tent to the awaiting horse and chariot.
Miller is now offered a choice: He must remain in hiding and be on the run for the rest of his life, or he must trust Salamaguchi and spend a day with him in the kingdom of Salem.
His benefactor promises him a day of pardon and redemption; one day which will be ‘worth a thousand good years on Earth.’
The hapless juvenile needs no persuasion and gladly accepts the day return ticket.
Miller’s first ordeal in Salem is to visit the shocking killing fields of his childhood. He is then accompanied by Salamaguchi to the Court of the Law, where he sees a baby being offered up by its mother as a sacrifice for the sins of the father.
Salamaguchi instructs Miller on the pathway of redemption. It is contained in an ancient scroll, which can only be opened by royal decree.
He charts the way for his condemned protégé. It is a highway of pardon and redemption; a narrow track of faith on which Miller can find the way of escape from the clutches of his tormenters.
Miller seizes the day and starts out on a journey of reinvention and deliverance from the relentless avenging demons that have blighted his life.
Miller’s day finally comes to an end and he is returned to Earth.
He eagerly begins to apply the teachings to his renewed life and gradually untangles himself from the piercing thorns of family curses, which had been growing around his life, like a brier.
Miller wins the freedom to achieve his dreams, but his heart is stolen by fame and his love for Salamaguchi grows cold.
Miller grows old and on the morning of his final world-stage appearance, the maestro receives an unexpected wake-up call. While looking into his dressing room mirror Miller is mortified to see sinister, shadowy figures lurking in the wings of the concert stage.
Have the guardians of the grim wilderness returned with a warrant?
Will Salamaguchi be so easy to find, this time!
