"It was a dot in an edgeless universe that stretched to infinity. Yet with all that considered, I still wouldn't want to be anywhere else."

One boring summer in a boring little town, Alexander Taylor makes an attempt to avoid going stir-crazy by taking a walk to the local cinema.

Little does he know that he'll meet Scarlett Stevenson, an enigmatic redhead that captivates Alex and puts him on an emotional journey that will lead him through science-fiction TV shows, eccentric Swedish performances of Shakespeare, and existential cheeseburgers.

Backwards From Infinity is a coming-of-age tale about friendships, relationships, and reflecting on the idea that not all that glitters is gold.
