Blurb: Meet Dillon, a high-functioning mess with a rather inconvenient foot fetish, who has been keeping some very big secrets from his girlfriend Ramona.
Also, meet Dhilan, a young carer caught in an endless loop of pre-bereavement bereavement for his dying mother.
And then there is Dylan. The less said about him the better.
These three very separate identities for the same young man have been growing dangerously hardwired thanks to the self-reinforcing effects of social media and search engines, and the uncanny predictive capabilities of his smartphones.
When two creepy old dudes threaten to expose Dillon/Dhilan/Dylan, he is forced to unravel a gut-wrenching mystery that he would rather leave well alone.
Set in a strange greyscape between the digital world and the messy realm of the body, Distortion asks timely questions about what happens when our digital data doesn't just filter our view of the world, but also our view of ourselves.
