Invasion

Abulkasem – a name that just might have magical powers. Everyone wants that name, but who is Abulkasem? A hero in a fairy tale. A world-renowned stage director. A cute guy I met at the bar. A shadowy figure we’re tracking across the globe. Or all of the above? Who is Abulkasem? And how many are there?
