Synopsis

A Field in Arlon is one of those pieces of writing that have you reflect and ask if you were ever there, whether you were any one of those involved, or whether you thought you’d left it all behind... A Field in Arlon is the pained cry of a desperately unhappy and lost soul; a man who might have everything but who believes he has nothing; a man who, in his search for gratification and peace of mind, stands to lose all. A Field in Arlon is concerned with a man in mid-life crisis - at least, that is how others would see him. Yet, for him there is another, perhaps one final quest, as though his life has been one continuous journey and this trip is, therefore, no different to all the others. The crisis is his past, coming back to haunt him repeatedly. However he tries to rectify situations and to understand himself, he is bound to fail, simply because he is too much an egoist to look beyond his own needs. Yet, this is his story and he is too self-absorbed to listen to the voices of others. This is his pain; this is his very own outcome.
