Synopsis
Everybody ages, everybody dies - but not, necessarily, Victor. He's never felt better... Victor, a molecular biologist for more than forty years, is looking back over his life and his glittering career. His private lab, in North London, has been responsible for a number of key breakthroughs in the treatment of autoimmune diseases - particularly Multiple Sclerosis. But now Victor is self-medicating the drug, Telo, that promises to offer a cure for aging with the muted fervour of a high-functioning white-collar junkie. UNBOUND is a meditation on the brevity and beauty of life, a love letter to the arts, a series of open and very timely questions about the nature and future of mortality in the 21st century, and a distinctive literary reboot of the gothic novel.
