MIRROR ME
Coming 2016

John Ambridge has a single photo on his bedside table. Taken twenty years ago by his wife Marla, it is of John hand-in-hand with son Mark.

Now Marla is gone, Mark has not spoken to his father in years, and John is dying. In the final stage of renal failure, years of waiting for a new kidney have proven fruitless, and every attempt at growing a replacement in the lab has failed.

Options exhausted, John looks to an experimental technology: a device capable of opening tears to parallel universes. As he and the science team trawl the multiverse for a John with a healthy kidney he might ‘borrow’, he is faced with other versions of himself. Have they all made the same wrong choices, alienating a wife and son? Or is a better John somewhere out there?

Pondering these questions and more, John thinks back over his life: what has passed, what he has left, and whether he might find redemption before his kidneys give out for good.
