Shadow of the Firefly is an abstract depiction of M S Khokhar's challenges as a young brain haemorrhage survivor, and the ensuing journey that comes to define his life. Finding himself lost, alone and disoriented, he has to rapidly learn how to manage his newly acquired disability and reinterpret everything that he previously took for granted to make sense of what has happened. The journey takes him to foreign lands and seemingly primitive places where he encounters a host of fellow travellers. With the help and camaraderie of his new companions, a sense of confidence starts to develop, generating a new sense of purpose: to help and assist his new friends in their cause. A cause which instinctively becomes his own. The path gradually congeals before him, leading towards the ultimate goal and into the midst of a seemingly blissful state. But before he can react, his new utopia inexplicably begins to fall apart. One safe haven remains, an unexpected bastion of calm and balance that leads him into a familiar space and the light of the fireflies. But with the world disintegrating outside, confusion abounds once more. Except for one thing. Another presence. Something that was lost to him. Something that meant the world to him. And now it has returned to remind him of the significance of his fantastic journey, allowing him to emerge from its shadow and accept his new reality. For anyone who feels lost, that the world is against them and whatever they do, nothing quite seems to go according to plan, Shadow of the Firefly is an example of how, by adopting a different perspective and daring to venture beyond the self-imposed boundaries of the modern world, it can all be seen to have a deeper, more satisfying purpose.
