Queen of Heaven
Michael Acosta is no stranger to heartache and misery; in fact, he resides there. Widowed and self-loathing
his existence, he trudges through life since his wife's death, while looking for a way to cope with the
pain. Searching for a catharsis to no avail, Michael repeatedly comes short in finding any semblance of peace
while the pain continues to fester deeper within himself. Life's hardships seem to be all he can see both
past and present, as he attempts to drown out the embitterment and hurt in an infinite pool of liquor. Set in
2092, Queen of Heaven takes place at the end of the 21st century where space travel is the norm and comparable
with booking a commercial flight anywhere here on Earth.
Anyone wanting to start a new life is not limited to just moving from one city to another or from one country
to another for that matter, now all of space is listed up for real estate- an idea that attracts Michael.
Thoughts of innumerable possibilities overwhelm him (and honestly frightens him) as they come rushing into his
mind. What lies just beyond this despair?
Will something this drastic bring him happiness? If Michael could hold back his indecisiveness just long
enough to board a flight to Mars, he could put to rest the racing thoughts. Looking into the heavens, he
stares and wonders if anything lies in store for him past his fears as another rocket takes off.
