Twenty-six-year-old Hope Wells is introduced to quantum theory as she finds herself hurtled into an alternate dimension at the hands of her bungling spirit guide in an attempt to save Hope from an accident that would have resulted in her certain death.
Emma Lowen, an ageless spirit guide, has been responsible for guiding Hope's maternal lineage for generations and unveils herself now in order to help guide Hope through a dimension that is rated far lower on the civil liberties scale than the world she has left behind.
As two versions of the same person do not exist simultaneously in the same dimension, Hope's alternate self has taken her place in a highly evolved dimension where war and poverty are unheard of. The alternate Hope is introduced to a reality that is not ruled by capitalist gain-a world that has benefited from the leadership of true visionaries who remained in public service. Alternate Hope soon discovers that she has won the dimension jackpot when she learns that John Lennon, a leading human rights activist, represents the UK for the United Nations General Assembly, while taking the occasional break to tour the globe with the band.
Both women struggle with this strange twist of fate as they work their way through each other's lives while waiting for their spirit guide to figure out how to restore the continuum and return each to her own dimension.
As Alternate Hope does her best to preserve a completely foreign romantic relationship, the other Hope must learn to navigate the unknown waters of homophobia, racial bigotry, the state of a mental health industry self-governed by giant pharma, a severely degraded environment, the inequality of opportunity, and last but not least, the murderous intentions of a sociopath with delusions of grandeur.
It's a race against time as all concerned struggle to make it to the portal in the right place at the right time to safely return both Hopes to the dimensions they call home.
