  • Overview

    Aura is the story of a pure soul, an eccentric man named Mike who can see color auras surrounding others, revealing their vitality—or imminent demise. It is a probing exploration of how Mike copes with knowledge that one should not even possess, let alone share. How does a thoughtful person live from day to day with a gift/curse of soul-wracking sensitivity and mind-numbing thoughtfulness such as this? Earl, a still young and vital senior struggling with his wife's recent death, meets Mike on his daily walk in the park, and Earl's world is forever transformed. Amanda, a young mom, and Dr. Emily Wallace, a psychiatrist to whom Mike turns for help with his unique visions, are both profoundly affected by Mike and are drawn to this kind and peculiar man with unique gifts.
