Counting To Infinity Synopsis

Seth, the main character, is a character with whom we can all relate; he comes from a background of a broken marriage as well as a biological father whose role is few and far between. Seth is a creative entity with big dreams, who is willing to do anything to escape from his small town, and is looking to scratch the surface world. Seth confides in his friends for the family structure. The story begins with a first person recount of Seth’s life in Connecticut, and immediately switches to a past life account of the characters’ story. Seth’s family is portrayed as a seemingly normal family, until his Stepfather breaks into the conversation, as a daily drunk who is looking to get his Step-sons riled up. On top of this, Seth’s brother who is a seemingly psychotic and depressed person, willing to lash out at anyone who crosses his path. Seth attempts to break away from this reality, to another, safer reality with his girlfriend Amy, who will give Seth whatever he wants, including a safe haven. Seth soon masterminds a scheme to escape the confines of the small town that he is locked in, and sets out to conquer the world with his friends by his side.
