Helen (Gwyneth Paltrow), the woman in question, is fired from her PR job for trivial reasons and goes to take the train back home. In one outcome, after missing her train, she walks back to the street, calls a cab, and goes home after a couple delays, to her boyfriend Gerry (John Lynch) who comforts her after her tough day. In the other, she catches her train, meets James (John Hannah) then arrives home only to find her boyfriend in bed with another woman.

Also, Gerry’s affair with Lydia (Jeanne Tripplehorn) goes unnoticed until the very end, although she suspects it. In contrast, the Helen that caches her train gets a new haircut, starts her own company and finds a new boyfriend in James. By the end of the movie, both versions of Helen get pregnant but lose their child in an accident. The first version of Helen that had caught the train dies, while the other survives, breaks up with Gerry and meets James on her way out at…

    Newton’s third law of physics state that “For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” This can be applied to the universal concept of change and indicates that all choices have rippling effects in life, which shape the consequences of change we experience, be it positive or negative. Ideas of these consequences vary as every individual’s experience throughout their life depends entirely upon their reaction, resulting from the context. Peter Goldsworthy’s novel Maestro expresses…

    Clunk, The sound of the deadbolt sliding into place, securing me in the house. Or so I thought. My mom got in the car and drove away, to return at 9 o’clock that night. I spent about an hour just sitting around, checking my phone, and wasting time. I thought about cleaning my “biohazard of a messy room” but I decided against it. I then realized that I wanted to go on a bike ride, but before that, I would need to do a load of laundry. I put it in the clothes, turned the machine on, and left it…

I’m going to work.” Dani slammed the front door to the tiny apartment they barely gathered the money to pay for this month. “I didn’t fucking say…” Nick sighed, letting his voice drop out of a yell as to not alarm the neighbors. Again. Nick made his way toward their sorry excuse of a master bedroom, past the little dining table that was accompanied by two dark wooden…

    An alarm blares in the background. Athena's icy prison begins to thaw. "Come back . . . you bastard." She forces the words out of her mouth causing her to cough violently.
