You know, scientists believe that humans cannot actually multi-task, that we in fact are just really efficient at switching what we are thinking about quickly. I don't know what scientists. I don't know who told me. I don't know whether it's true. But I think about that now.'

This is a retelling of the childhood classic Peter Pan. And it is nothing like the original.

20 years old, jobless, fatherless, partnerless, almost friendless and definitely on the verge of some kind of meltdown, we follow a woman, who acts like a child that wants to be an adult, and who has tried and promptly failed to hide from reality with the Lost Boys, figuring out her identity, her family, and whether she can ever, actually, just manage, for a minute, to stop and breathe.
