Optimal Outcome – $0.99 in this universe
1999…Hugh Talbot was on top of the world. A child prodigy, he graduated high school at fifteen, dropped out of UC Berkeley at seventeen, and started an online company poised to make millions…until the dotcom bubble burst.
Fifteen years later, Hugh has sold the company for peanuts, squandered all the money, and struggles to co-parent his estranged fourteen year old daughter. He works as a janitor, but that hasn’t stopped him from holding onto the past, perpetually searching for the Next Big Thing.
Salvation comes in the form of a mysterious phone call. The caller offers Hugh an opportunity he can’t refuse: a top secret project that requires extensive travel, and if he completes the job, he will walk away a millionaire.
Hugh is given a window into the past. He soon realizes that the past comes in many versions, that every decision carries life-altering consequences, and that true love never dies.
But now that he can look into the past, the question is, can he change it?
