Full of comedy and human vulnerability, this is a story of recovery and the redemptive nature of love.
When Amy catches her husband in the act, she falls down a flight of stairs and wakes up with amnesia – believing she is 16 and that the year is 1999. Aside from the wrinkles on her face, Amy is a teenager again – outspoken, hormonal, obsessed with emo poetry and, crucially, fixated with tracking down her high school best friend Polly. Last Amy remembers, they were joined at the hip. But Amy quickly realises that Polly doesn’t want anything to do with her, and Amy just cannot remember why.

Leon’s loved and lost.
He’s hit ground zero and never wants to go through that hell again. But then he meets someone incredible. Life seems full of possibility again. Inside his molecules are a hot mess
and figurative butterflies are doing flash mobs in his tummy. BUT… what if he knew the ending before it even began? What if that ending involved more suffering? With all that painful baggage, could he have a second chance at true intimacy?
