You know the future that people in the ‘50s imagined? Flying cars, teleportation, jetpacks and moon bases? Well, it happened. And it was just as great as we hoped it would be.
It’s 2016 and in Tom’s world, technology has solved all of humanity’s problems – there’s no war, no poverty, no under-ripe avocados. Unfortunately, Tom isn’t happy. He’s lost the girl of his dreams. And what do you do when you’re heartbroken and have access to a time machine? Something very stupid indeed.
Finding himself stranded in a terrible alternate reality – which we immediately recognise as our 2016, the all-too-familiar real world –Tom is desperate to fix his mistake and go home. Right up until the moment he discovers wonderfully unexpected versions of his family, his career, and the woman who might just be the love of his life. Now Tom faces an impossible choice.
Does he try to undo his mess and fix the flow of history? Or does he try to forge a new life in our messy, unpredictable universe? Tom has to save the world. But which world will he choose?
