Everybody loves airships. The crowds who gather to watch their launch view them as symbols of beauty, freedom, and power. But street musician Nelly Abbott sees in them the death of all her hopes for the future. Leading a barren life brightened only by the music she plays, Nelly lends a helping hand to Thanton, a seller of magic candles. In the flames of these candles, she sees the glimmerings of the happy life she once led. Might the candle magic give her the chance to regain what she has lost? Or will the cost prove too high?
It's just a Western theme park, a slightly seedy collection of weathered buildings and aged teepees. Every day the buses come, every day the tourists take their pictures, every day the streets echo with staged gunfights and faked bank robberies. And every day a group of old men stage a dance out of history. And out of time.
More information about the convention is here. We'll see you there!
