Tom had everything going for him. He was a bright and ambitious star at one of the most prestigious universities in the country when he stumbled upon contradictions in his research that he couldn’t reconcile, notions that were antithetical to science.

Then his life is interrupted by this strange event. – GEORGE GALLAGHER -


I’m a mechanic. Nothing very complicated. I enjoy my life but I never got as far as making a family. Not yet anyway. I am proud of my work and my technical abilities. I believe we all have a purpose in our lives. Sometimes it takes a while to figure out the purpose. I still am. – ETHAN FLOWER -


Charlotte is a financial analyst by profession and is most comfortable seeing people and the world in terms of black and white, balance sheets, logical, non-emotional. When she awakes, seemingly all alone in the world, she must find her way to a part of herself that has been locked safely away since the age of 12… her fears, feelings, emotions, desires and deep disappointments. To survive in this new world she must find a connection to her deeper self, her fellow human beings, her soul and the power of belief in things that she cannot see, touch, smell or hear but that are never-the-less real. – JAN BROBERG -
