Ralph Ashton, a stressed-out engineer on vacation with his wife, Grace, in Northern Italy, believes he has witnessed a young man‘s suicide. When it becomes clear there is absolutely no evidence to support this claim, he decides to investigate the incident himself in secret. His wife and the local police don’t know of his plans to investigate it.
Ralph’s search for the truth takes him to some of the most beautiful mountain villages surrounding Lake Garda. During his investigation, he gradually learns that the death of the unknown man may be connected to his, Ralph’s, own dark past. Riding high on a rollercoaster of regret, self-doubt and paranoia, and haunted by the guilt-stricken years of his youth, he is ultimately confronted by the cause of all his pent-up torment and exasperation.
Bay of Dreams is an intriguing tale about one man’s progressive descent into his own personal hell.
