When Tod T Friendly dies, his consciousness escapes his body and begins to re-live his life backwards. He begins life as a doctor in American suburbia, mangling his patients before sending them home fixed, ending relationships before falling in love, and watching his deceased friends and relatives being dug out of the ground are brought (back) to life. As he progresses further backwards, however, a sinister past and his true identity are uncovered: as a doctor in Nazi concentration camps during the Second World War, Friendly was involved in the genocide at Auschwitz. But is this the way his backwards-moving consciousness will re-live it? - Josh
