Fate is bored and frustrated with his lot. He is desperately seeking a strange human being called Johnny Flip, but for what evil purpose his glamorous, vulnerable assistant Anna can only guess. When Johnny Flip turns down Fate's generous offer, however, the stage is set for a confrontation that will change reality forever...

"...a light-hearted insight into the way Fate, a bureaucrat of the most listless kind, arranges our lives by twiddling dials and pulling levers on an antediluvian control panel... a great advertisement for new writing talent." - Jim Murphy, The Age, 18 November 2003
