            The startling destiny of a a young man who dies for love, only to find himself lost somewhere between the afterlife and the world of the living. A philosophical tale.

            On his twentieth birthday, Jeremy declares his passion to the love of his life. And is rejected. In the depths of his despair, Jeremy decides that God, the giver of life, is responsible for his pain; in an irrevocable gesture, he takes his life, challenging the God he feels has tricked him. Against all odds, he survives. As he wakes up, suddenly, Victoria, his beloved, is right there, overcome with love. Deliriously happy, Jeremy lives through a day of bliss, refusing to seek any answers as to how this miracle happened. That night, overtaken by a strange torpor, he sinks into a deep sleep. When he wakes, a year has passed and Victoria is carrying his child. This is only the beginning of an infernal cycle. Every year Jeremy comes to on his birthday, and every year he discovers some new disaster in his life, for while he hibernates for the year, another Jeremy, this one unbearably cruel and egotistical, has taken his place and wreaked havoc. His alter ego remains a stranger, but it is he, in fact, who is leading “their” life, and Jeremy is helpless. Behind this inexplicable and uncontrollable mechanism is a haunting question : where is the line between dream and reality? Or life and death? Is Jeremy insane, victim of a sort of selective amnesia, or cursed by the God he has defied?
