The only thing Simon Lewis ever wanted to do was to make movies. But when he found himself lost in a tragic script, his only option was to write himself out.

Simon wrote a fantastic book about his experience called Rise and Shine.

Simon's TED talk is also worth checking out.

Thanks to Chris Colin’s magnificent piece, "Blindsight," in The Atavist on which this radio story is based.

Additonal thanks to the Rumpus.
