SYNOPSIS:

A THOUSAND YEARS is a fantastical comic book-like tale moving through time. After a horrific accident, Miriam finds her spouse David in a coma. Leaving the hospital for some air, Miriam is abducted and her true journey begins. Facing a thousand years of obstacles, Miriam meets numerous allies on the path to return to her one true love. Ultimately, to save him, Miriam must engage in a battle for his soul with the evil She Doctor, her one true enemy in this epic adult fairytale. Will her devotion endure a century of complications? Will she win out?
