    “You know how when you’re little, people make you feel like you’ve been chosen for something great? And then one day it’s like it all vanished when you weren’t looking. Like you’ve disappointed them, somehow.”

    Nine years after almost causing the end of the world, Adam is working backstage in university theatre when he meets a high-strung, melodramatic, manipulative American director who happens to share his birthday.
