Review: Four stories from four eras of history are linked solely by the universal spiraling of a corkscrew-like symbol. Conflict and partial resolution follow each of the protagonists in life's often violent ebb and flow. From prehistoric to 18-century Britain to early 1900s in Long Island and culminating with a futuristic astronaut, this common thread -- "what goes around comes around," loss and discovery, pinnacles and valleys, life cycles, strands of a rope -- embodies many universal themes which are skillfully interwoven into seemingly unrelated tales.
