The title A Map of Days refers to the temporal atlas that pinpoints the locations of time loops in the peculiar world, Riggs explains. She's a sad case, tormented by a cloud of black smoke that trails her wherever she goes. The ghost of her sister inhabits the smoke, and sometimes, depending on the day and the light and the mood of the sister, you can just make out her face in it.
