From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
Two immortals play a game where their mortal players must fall in love or one of them must die.
For centuries, humans have been the pawns in the game between Love and Death. You may be familiar with a few of the challenges, Antony and Cleopatra, Helen of Troy and Paris, Romeo and Juliet. And Death always wins…always.
A new game is afoot and Love and Death have chosen the players.
Flora is an African-American girl who is truly at home in the sky. A plane mechanic by day and a jazz singer by night, Flora lives with her grandmother and is trying to save up enough money to finance a flight around the world!
Henry, works at the newspaper owned by his adoptive father while finishing school. Having lost his parents at a young age, Henry knows he should go into the newspaper as a career, after all he is good at it, and it would provide a good salary. But his true passion lies in playing his bass.
When Henry and Flora meet at the jazz club, sparks fly, trumpets blare and the bootleg liquor flows. But the odds are against them, and it seems all too likely they will succumb to death like the players before them.
