Dubbed the “one-eyed architect,” Robert and his innovative buildings are praised to the skies. Suddenly his masterpiece, a dome made from a living membrane, collapses in on its inhabitants. Meanwhile his relationships disintegrate as he chooses his work over his lovers. Reeling from failure and paralyzed by self-doubt, what Robert needs is inspiration.
Robert needs Grace.
Unable to find someone to love, Robert decides to craft his perfect woman. But creating a woman is far more complicated than creating a building. Though Robert adores the winsome and compassionate Grace, he finds himself once again subsumed by his work. Their attempt at compromise has entirely unforeseen consequences. Suddenly trapped in a game of passion and jealousy, Robert is forced to confront all that is dearest to him: his work, his love for Grace, and hardest of all, himself.

Torn from home, he journeys across the strange landscape of his world in a search of an acceptance he may never find.

Finally, in a land where reality meets mythology, he faces the greatest challenge of his life, and experiences a transformation that will forever alter the balance of the world.
