What could have been, what never could be and what should have been. Part 1, Nazareth Twice Told, The Drama's of Divorce, Alchoholism, College and Spirituality. Then we visit a strange exotic city where a bizarre kidnap plan unfolds. Part 2, The Dark is Always the Same, A Sleeper on a Mountain talks to a Dark Spirit then the Clowns have a Picnic. Part 3, Ratchethead, An Ancient Mariner leaves his home in Portugal and sails into the heart of a Pre-Tennessee Indian Maiden named "Winter Bear."
