Logline: 
When a grief-stricken writer is given a chance to save the one he loves, he must decide between his heart, or doom a million strangers.
Synopsis/Details: 

A world famous self-help writer -- broken and dejected from a loss he cannot overcome -- is visited by an enigmatic neighbor who feels she owes him a debt of gratitude for helping her, and many others overcome their battles with grief, inspired by his writings.

Humbled, yet overwhelmed by her story, Nick looks to the past for comfort, wishing that he could go back, even for just a moment, to change the events of a day that led to his seemingly everlasting torment.

But what if that wish came true? How would it change the course of his life, and more importantly, the lives of the ones he helped, albeit through his own terrible grief?

The Writer: Jeremy Storey

Jeremy Storey, originally hails from the United Kingdom, but now resides in Seattle, WA. He first discovered the joys of writing at school, penning short stories and collaborating on comic books with his friends. Coming from a writerly family, it was clearly in his DNA to tell stories. However, it wasn’t until he graduated University, that he started to dabble in film and stage.

Since then, he’s written feature length screenplays (The Immaculate Secret, Rewind, Pink Slip Party), as well as award-winning short screenplays (Cat & Mouse, Wishbone, Tower of Strength) and award-winning stage plays (Last Cup of Sorrow, Wolves at the Door). For Jeremy, writing is a form of catharsis... Go to bio
