The Body’s Long Madness

Valerie leaves the United States of America to travel on a one-way ticket, alone. Valerie is a young woman who has vowed to discover her true self, for this she will sacrifice anything and everything. She lives in disregard for her corporeality, denies her physical reflection.

Besides that handy introduction, I believe the least said about The Body’s Long Madness, the better.
