The Great Mystery is a timeless message for the entire world, and offers life-changing perspective to those who make the journey. As the story begins, a sick young soldier is rushed into the emergency room, and is forced to say good-bye to the ones he loves. When his heart suddenly stops during a dangerous operation, the adventure begins in his mind. In the following scene, Amir and Eva encounter one another while lost in the wilderness, and are tempted to set out on a symbolic quest with the fate of the world at stake.
