Small towns are full of gossip, but even small-town Texas outdoes itself when adopted Tommy Smythe disappears. According to the locals, Tommy wandered through life absorbed with the possibility of alternate realities. Everyone has a theory about how he disappeared, and the sheriff is gathering the stories from everyone who knew him. Whether Tommy’s disappearance was a consequence of kidnapping, murder, a horrible accident, or a jump into an alternate reality, the sheriff’s search for Tommy unlocks the alternate realities that exist in each human mind.
