On August 25th 2010, Carl Doyle vanished into thin air right in front of his friends.
Since he left, Alan Darcy has had to put up with the public interest. Life goes on, changed forever. People blame him for Carl disappearing: friends, the media, the authorities. The first chance he gets, he flees the country.
Over a year later, Carl returns as mysteriously as he disappeared. With no recollection of where he's been, who he is or why he left, he can only wait for Alan to come back home, and attempt to remember his life before stepping forward in time.
