While Passengers of Darkness does explore trauma suffered in a relationship, with two people confronting challenges to their love and trust, it could also be a metaphor for the trauma some people are feeling over our recent presidential election. The lack of transparency and trust in an election, as well as a relationship, can be destructive and almost always leads to chaos.
