An old man in Laos walks the dusty roads between his isolated farm and the nearby rural village in the company of a silent spirit whose death he witnessed decades earlier as a young boy. He also has lived his life filled with regret over losing his mother to tuberculosis. This gives him a compulsive drive to ease the suffering of the terminally ill, and over the years, he has quietly euthanized several sick women, as a form of repent for witnessing his mother’s death. As he realizes that his spectral companion has temporal abilities, he hatches a plan to end his mother’s suffering once and for all. One could argue that THE LONG WALK is the first time travel story to deal with Buddhist beliefs. — Anderson Le
