about

This is a modern day story about an old man and a boy; their lives forever integrated by an accident and an evil doctor's insatiable drive to unravel the mysteries of the human mind. The ensuing operation pushes the medical boundaries beyond moral and ethical limits. The end result is a situation in which a relatively mature individual is forced to cope as a young teenager in an inescapable dysfunctional family environment.Deep family emotions grounded in despair and denial are uprooted and gradually exposed in unexpected hilarious twists and turns. A temporary unsettled peace culminates in another disaster.Played out in two very different countries (Canada and South Africa) difficult cultural and racial issues of past generations are laid bare. Two young South African doctors aid the teenager while protecting a fragile new South Africa from civil war in the post 'Apartheid' era.Supported too by his rejuvenated family, the youngster's startling wisdom and keen sense of humor serve to strengthen the relationships between the characters as the forces of good and evil wrestle for control of the ultimate prize - immortality
