The second feature from Kim Dae-seung, the award-winning director of the 2001 romantic drama, Bungee Jumping Of Their Own, Blood Rain is a gripping and grisly period detective thriller set in 19th century Korea starring Cha Seung-won ( Eye For An Eye ; Kick The Moon ). It is a time of feudal barons and superstition. An island community is shocked when a ship bound for the imperial courts inexplicably bursts into flames. On board was a cargo of handcrafted paper from the island's factory, a place harboring something sinister. Detective Won-kyu (Cha Seung-won) is dispatched to investigate only to discover the community in the grip of terror. A series of murders convinces them a malevolent spirit is responsible, taking revenge for crimes that no one wants to talk about, pronouncing predictions of doom when the Blood Rain falls. Won-kyu follows an increasingly corpose-riddled trail that not only threatens his life but also is set to reveal a dark secret that links him to the village's shameful past. A refreshing and fiendishly intriguing serial killer mystery thriller, Blood Rain takes a traditional detective tale and relocates it to an earlier age, much in the spirit of In The Name Of The Rose and Brotherhood Of The Wolf. The film's lavish production values add a pleasing richness to the proceeding whilst the unexpected and extremely grisly violence is at times as shocking as that in any current Asian thriller. Blood Rain is a delightfully dark and devious who-dunnit told with style and intelligence.

The book describes examples of separations as an opportunity for transformation and healing. These include early experiences from the author's personal life, such as missing her absent father as a four year old, and how she found a way to cope; once she moved to the United States she pursued a personal search for meaning, mostly spiritual, in unexpected places: during a vision quest, the World Trade Center after September 11, a bungee jump in New Zealand, learning & teaching how to walk a Labyrinth, becoming a Spiritual Director, Skydiving, serving as an auxiliary mounted police officer in New York's Central Park, becoming a pilot. Later, her personal experiences and training helped her understand and connect with patients, who shared their lives during visits. As a chaplain, the author learned quickly that one cannot easily fix other peoples' problems but can walk alongside them in their longing to heal and perhaps even discover their own spiritual potential. From these experiences, the readers learn that there are surprising benefits to facing physical, mental, emotional or spiritual distress in life. They may also discover the possibility to heal and even to reach a higher spiritual level when they understand, they are not alone.
THE REMARKABLE AND INSPIRING TRUE STORY OF ONE GUY WHO TRANSFORMED HIS UNCERTAINTY ABOUT THE FUTURE INTO ACTION A year and a half after he graduated from college, Sean Aiken found himself struggling to answer the question 'What should I do with my life?' His mother suggested teaching. His older sister told him to apply for an entry-level corporate position. His father said, 'It doesn't matter what you do, just make sure it's something you're passionate about.' Taking his father's advice to heart, Sean created the One-Week Job Project and launched himself on an epic journey to find his passion. His goal: to work fifty-two jobs in fifty-two weeks. After the launch of his website, oneweekjob.com, the offers began pouring in. Sean's first gig was-literally-jumping off a bridge, as a bungee operator in British Columbia. From there he traveled across Canada and the United States, reinventing himself as a firefighter, an aquarium host, a radio DJ, a martial arts instructor, an NHL mascot, and a snowshoe guide. During the course of his seven-day stints, from a Florida stock-trading floor to a cattle ranch in the wilds of Wyoming to a real estate office in Beverly Hills, Sean found time to make new friends and even fall in love. Whether choosing a spring fashion line, brewing beer, or milking a cow, Sean continued to ask himself and others about what success really means and how we find happiness-all while having the adventure of his life. Inventive and empowering, witty and wise, The One-Week Job Project is a book that will give you the courage to follow your passion. Or, as Mark Twain said, 'Explore. Dream. Discover.'
