In a surreal dream, the protagonist finds himself at a ball in Charlestonís Hibernian Hall, where he witnesses the suffering of the Lady in the Shiny Green Dress. When she looks to him imploringly, he awakes in a panic and realizes that he must come to an understanding of her anguish before he can do ... whatever it is he is supposed to do. In an extended vision, he descends into what he perceives to be Charleston Ė or rather, some alternative Charleston Ė of thirty years earlier, and he joins his soul with that of a distraught cadet returning at midnight to The Acropolis, The Military Academy of the South. Here, Cadet undertakes a journey through love and loss, isolation and unity, and confrontation with religious and political bigotry.
