Monstrat Viam

by Patrick Gabridge
Directed by Courtney O’Connor

As her walk through the city continues through the jungle-like Boston Common, Journey and the Mayor discuss the further impending changes and threats the city is facing. On the verge of apocalypse, Journey is forced to leap back onto an uncertain path, but she encounters a familiar face and elists their help to help to ward off the dangers of the future and the past.
