Tom Barren lebt in der idealen Welt: keine Armut, keine Kriege, perfekt gereifte Avocados. Nur Tom genügt nie den Anforderungen und hat zudem die Frau seiner Träume verloren. In seiner Not greift er zu einer Zeitmaschine. Doch alles geht schief, und bei seiner Rückkehr ins Jetzt umgibt ihn nicht mehr seine, sondern unsere Alltagswelt. Ein Fehler, den er sofort korrigieren will - bis er auf eine wunderbare alternative Version seiner großen Liebe trifft. Bleiben oder Gehen? Gefühl oder Pflicht? Es beginnt eine spannende Reise quer über Kontinente und Zeitlinien.
You know the future that people in the 1950s imagined we'd have? Well, it happened. In Tom Barren's 2016, humanity thrives in a techno-utopian paradise of flying cars, moving sidewalks, and moon bases, where avocados never go bad and punk rock never existed...because it wasn't necessary. Except Tom just can't seem to find his place in this dazzling, idealistic world, and that's
before his life gets turned upside down.
So, the thing is, I come from the world we were supposed to have. That means nothing to you, obviously, because you live here, in the crappy world we do have. But it never should've turned out like this. And it's all my fault - well, me and, to a lesser extent, my father. And, yeah, I guess a little bit Penelope. In both worlds she's the love of my life. But only a single version of her can exist. I have one impossible chance to fix history's greatest mistake and save this broken world.
