To Bind Fast is a story about value and purpose, and the people who search for them. Their exploration involves their study of human behavior and the type of bonds that people establish on an individual level, a group level, and a grand scale that involves a person's allegiance to both religious and secular ideologies, regardless of individual motives. The story also investigates the question of how to live if no apparent guideposts are available to direct human action. Can someone live without purpose or direction? Or can they create their own in order to live on?
