After Michael graduated from college, the job market deposits him in a city far from his friends, his social life, and his girlfriend. Michael is alone in this new city, but he believes he has found the perfect hobby to occupy his time in his solitude. A hobby he calls urban exploration—the breaking into derelict buildings so he can view a past life untouched by historical renovations.
In his urban exploration run, Michael finds an illicit remedy to help him get through his humdrum life. With each passing day, he finds himself more and more attracted to it. It becomes the object of his fascination. But he knows what’s calling to him. Something different. Something he wishes not to acknowledge. Something deeper inside him.
Told from Michael’s personal journal written in 1987, This Calling Master explores the thoughts, the feelings, the emotions, and the actions of one man caught in a battle against himself.
