jamilia

 

Jamilia’s husband is off fighting at the front. She spends her days hauling sacks of grain from the threshing floor to the train station in their small village, accompanied by Seit, her young brother-in-law, and Daniyar, a sullen newcomer to the village who has been wounded on the battlefield.

Seit observes the beautiful, spirited Jamilia spurn men’s advances, and wince at the dispassionate letters she receives from her husband. Meanwhile, undeterred by Jamilia’s teasing, Daniyar sings as they return each evening from the fields. Soon Jamilia is in love, and she and Daniyar elope just as her husband returns.


 

son-of-rosemary

Son of Rosemary opens at the dawn of the new millennium – a time when human hope is shadowed by growing fear and uncertainty, and the world is in greatest need of a savior. It is here – against a glittering backdrop of New York City in 1999 – that Rosemary is reunited with her son. It is also here that the battle between good and evil will be played out on a global scale – a struggle that will have frightening, far-reaching consequences, not only for Rosemary and her son but for all humanity.
