Sleeping Beauty gets a high concept ‘Black Mirror’ style twist – the Book Seller.


Laura is dying. Her last desperate hope is to be frozen until she can be cured. But what happens when you wake up one day and the world has moved on forty years? Your best friend is middle-aged, your parents are presumed dead. Could you find a place to belong? Could you build a new life, while solving the mystery of what happened to the old one?

Dark secrets lurk in the future of the girl from the past…
