THEODORE'S WORK IN PROGRESS
Can there be a world without chaos?
Theodore, a teen activist, has been in a year-long fight to get his parents justice after they were murdered. He’s nearly lost faith in humanity as each protest brings him no closer to progress. Yet, millions of people are watching his every move. He has to fight, he has to create change, he has to protect.
Theo is exhausted. He wishes he could disappear to another planet, give up his responsibilities, stop caring, and not be the teen who saves the world—for just a moment.
So when the opportunity to escape presents itself, offering hope, progress, and a break, Theo is skeptical.
Can a perfect world even exist?
