“Someone recently told me that human beings are constantly overwhelmed and exhausted these days because of the sheer number of decisions we are required to make in a day,” Isaac says. “I wondered what might happen if you were so overwhelmed by decisions that you ultimately snap. Then I wondered what it would be like if that snap happened at the worst possible time.”
DECISION PARALYSIS Synopsis
It’s easy to become overwhelmed to the point of paralysis these days. Just ask grade-schooler Tina. Better yet, ask Tina’s granny.
Her granny has had a rough time of late. First, Tina’s grandfather, the family decision maker, died. Next, her granny was saddled with having to care for granddaughter Tina while Tina’s mother went to work. That became especially burdensome after Tina’s bus driver forgot to drop her off from school one day. However, the worst day of her granny’s life was yet to come.
One afternoon Tina finds herself helplessly captive in the backseat of her granny’s Lincoln. She can only watch as the pressure of daily decision-making forces away the last of her granny’s sanity. Meanwhile, the Lincoln speeds and careens wildly down the streets of Tina’s hometown with Tina trapped in the backseat and her granny paralyzed behind the wheel.
Can Tina help her granny break free from her spiral in time to save both their lives?
The decision is in her hands.
