Private Project


When Neil meets Heather it is love at first sight... They enjoy a whirlwind romance and revel in how happy they are... Until they run into Machlis...

MACHLIS claims to be medium who's doesn't take on many new clients and for a very good reason. Heather is fascinated and and persuades Neil to go along for a session with him where upon the elderly and learned Machlis reveals what is unique about his particular gift. Instead of reading people's futures, he allows them to see their parallel, the alternate version of how their lives are playing out. The negative to the positive.

But when Machlis regresses each of them they find that though the mirror image world may look the same on the surface, it is bubbling underneath with malevolence and the very darkest of desires. Both Neil and Heather soon become addicted to the danger and uninhibited nature of the parallel and it rapidly takes its toll on them. We see the pivotal moments of their romance played out in the parallel with very different and very chilling outcomes.

Does the mystery of the parallel lie in the hidden fabric of space and time or the seemingly benevolent Machlis and can they discover the real answers to the questions before their lives and their sanity crumble?

Parallel is an erotic and chilling psychological drama with a distinctly new approach and a killer twist.
