"Another Life" tells the story of Chris, a brainy teen with a habit of sneaking around his father's cutting-edge laboratory. Chris's eagerness infuriates both his friend Rachel - the literal girl-next-door who harbors a crush on him - and Ben, his father's moody assistant.
One night, Chris notices something unusual while secretly using his father's new 'remote viewing' machine. The machine is capable of showing images from anywhere on Earth that the operator desires. The images that Chris sees when using the machine can't be possible though... at least not in his reality.
After the machine goes haywire, Chris finds himself in a parallel universe where the improbable has become real. He's suddenly living out the life he'd long wished for and everything seems perfect...at first.
