Incinerate is a story about young individuals trying to live and love life as their best selves. Ted is looking for answers as his Uncle lies dying in ICU, his half-sister turns up like a fairy princess with a wicked but gorgeous enchantress tagging along and a best friend whose good opinion is not easily bought. Personal dilemmas are sidetracked by a bizarre business proposition on dogs and their demise with an untrustworthy associate. No neat end is waiting as the personal and business unpredictably intersect.

Incinerate cuts away the myth of the acceptable stereotypical social media profile, online dating persona and posted comment needed to keep the system operating and says each of us is complex and not entirely predictable and that is not a bad thing. It makes life more interesting. 

Incinerate gives characters who cannot totally trust themselves to be good. It raises questions. Can any of us trust ourselves? Is there a true and reliable self? Can motive ever be clearly seen? Does anyone really know how they would react in strange circumstances?

Incinerate asks questions about relationships. Is it possible to pursue someone knowing they are not all good – to go on the journey with an unreliable companion? Is beauty an excuse to be bad? Are damaged people damaging to us?

Incinerate is not totally serious. It does not get drawn into correct identity lines. It is not having a go at any group. It takes a vaguely cynical approach to the human love of dogs in affluent Western society without being judgmental. Incinerate takes a longshot picture of how humans manage their needs be it with pets or others of their own species.
