"This film is a voyage into the self -- and into time. When a young woman learns she is harbouring the AIDS virus, she feels compelled to reflect upon human existence. She travels back to the Bronze Age. As she wanders in the ruined sites of the ancient Minoans, she observes that their passage is still visible four thousand years later. Today the world is held hostage by a killer disease that is stealthier than a volcano, but it exacts the same price. Now, as then, some profound questions exist: How does humanity define itself? How do we measure our passage?"
