All That Remains

A visit to the Scottish highlands to scatter her mother’s ashes becomes a life-changing journey for Calleigh Campbell, a young paediatrician from Nova Scotia.

Stunned by the theft of the urn after arriving in Perthshire, she discovers further remains from her mother’s past, secrets of a woman she seems hardly to have known.

A violent encounter and its attendant aftershocks test her resolve, and deepen her connection to a mystic land with spirits of its own.

A Case for Dr. Palindrome

Years after surviving an abusive childhood, Paul Thorne assists in the suicide of his depraved, now terminally ill, stepfather. But he bungles the arranged procedure and suffocates the man in a panic. Desperate to conceal his crime, he stows the body in a household freezer.

Ten years on, and nearing a breakdown from crippling anxiety, a failing marriage, and now a prying neighbor who lives opposite the house with the frozen corpse, Paul seeks mental support from a bizarre source.

Desperate to find a way forward, he attempts a leap back in time to purge his demons and address his crime.

Going forward and going back amount to the same thing.

Like a palindrome.
