A description of Prank: The encounter is a dark discovery, the hour of reason that strips the soul of its naiveté, an experience that prepares us for the joy and sorrow that are a part of every journey. Growing up. Falling out of innocence. Learning to trust the unknown and resurrecting the magic of childhood when our faith has been shaken. An encounter asks us to brave the journey of life, now and always.
