Storyline

John Rotit is quite happy, with a loving wife. Moments later, he's a rock star shooting up heroin. And after that...he's something far more sinister. John unwillingly moves between three parallel lives and knowingly exists in each. He has no clue how or why this phenomenon is occurring. John's judgment becomes even more clouded as his mind unravels, and he'll do anything to end his "flashes" and remain in the one life where he's truly happy. Written by Andrew M. Henderson

Very Creative, Unexpected Ending
21 July 2020 | by eelsweisySee all my reviews

Very nice feature. I like the multiple roles played by the lead and supporting characters. It was very creative, it takes talent and a lot of crafting for one person to play so many contradicting roles. I liked many of the director's choices"won't go into details to avoid spoiling". THE ENDING wAS A SURPRISE
