(From the publisher):
Rodnoc, star director of historical films at an Italian Film Festival, feels himself haunted by the "subject" of his next film, a historical treatment of the medieval painter Hieronymus Bosch. His story parallels and is intertwined with the story of the painter. In dealing with the historical past, Rodnoc finds he must also deal with his personal past, fringed by the skeletons which those who surround him have in their closets. While cleverly interweaving the two artists' lives, Hlawaty raises questions of personal solitude and isolation and whether the bloody scenes which drove Bosch to paint in the past are only intensified in the world today.
