Michael Oliver Wimbledon wants nothing more than to be left alone. Living in a hospital room alone as a young boy is enough to turn anyone into a recluse, but what most people don’t know is Michael has been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. The only thing keeping Michael going is his love for drawing cartoons. It isn’t until a chance meeting with aged illustrator William Gatsby that Michael’s outlook on life changes. Gatsby helps Michael discover the existence of a world you can only get to from a map. However, what if once inside this world you come face to face with your worst enemy?
