“You think in a parallel world everything is perfect? You think it all works out?”

Tired of waiting helplessly for traffic lights to change, Donny Rowan seeks the road not taken. He's put his life up for sale on the front lawn, and scans the galaxy from his E-Z Boy recliner in the attic. He's setting his sights on the other side of the universe; a parallel dimension with alternate spatial-temporal rules but a very similar journey of self-discovery.

About Flat Earth
