A Box of Chocolates is a collection of short stories that transports the reader into the lives of various individuals, trapped in different psycho-social situations, who require serendipity and a touch of the spiritual in order to obtain freedom. In the box are eighteen chocolates; each one carefully made, painstakingly wrapped and methodically packed. Each chocolate with a unique taste, each one representing a different story. In the box, sits a plethora of colours, a myriad of aspirations, a landscape of experiences. It travels across the fields of love, hatred, oppression, corruption, homosexuality, AIDS, rebellion, spiritualism, slavery, migration, life and ultimately death as it seeks to capture in one snapshot, the reality of the helplessness of mankind when confronted with the unpredictable nature of Fate.
