    Jacob has these headaches and nightmares. He also obsessively counts the time, always counting down from three to one, to coincide with the minutes passing. He believes his mind contains the next big bang, the birth of the next universe, and he’s only got days before annihilation. His doctor prescribes him his anti-psychotic medication.

    Jacob is also being followed by three strangers who seem intent on stopping him from suicide. With time running short he finds a gun he plans to use on himself, and then he meets Sara atop a multi-storey car park.

    Shortlisted at Sonys Magazine competition.
