Nearing his death an old man speaks of the memories of his life, all the people and places important to him, and everything he's discovered.
Nicodemus Other is egoistical, self-righteous, and rash, the complete opposite of his father who is a peace negotiator by trade. However, they both share the same strong morals and desire for peace.
When Nicodemus is left with few other choices, he decides to follow in his father’s footsteps. Can he overcome his self-centred traits to become a successful peace negotiator?
Nicodemus faces ups and downs in a journey of self discovery, an abnormal childhood of moving from country to country, the internal conflict he experiences at university. Scattered along the way are philosophical thoughts of love and hate, war and peace, and life and death itself. With the help of his friend, Nicodemus battles personal demons, and questions his actions, but is it enough for him to protect his family and everyone else from a world slowly killing itself?
