Second Life is the story of a burned out alcoholic doctor whose life is transferred into a totally successful doctor. Presto, from early mornings in his wife’s Tahitian themed bar to Nobel Prize caliber doctor.
This happens through the work of an angel, who goes by the name Number 2, and explains how the genius Doctor, Dr. Takahashi, is about to solve the problem of blindness in newborns, except that he is about to die. Now they want the failed Dr. to take over his life. “We didn’t choose you then, but we are choosing you now.”
The journey this newly successful doctor embarks on takes him back to confronting the demons that brought him to alcoholism in the first place. He was a prison doctor, and a good one, and saw something that shocked him into legal action against the prison. The prison obliterated him in court, fired him and sent him into a psychological tail spin.
The circle gets a fiery close when the failed doctor, once in the genius doctor’s body, meets the genius doctor’s wife, and sees that the high level of professional success was matched by an equal and opposite failure of family life. The genius doctor’s wife hates him. Their daughter hates both of them and has become a shop lifting lesbian. The failed doctor, now in the body of this Asian genius doctor, finds a way to mend the coldness in the relationship. This upsets the daughter, who goes to the police and reports that her father several years ago had illegal sexual relations with her.
This brings the good doctor back to meet his demons face to face. This time he’ll handle it differently. That’s what second lives are all about.
In the process he learns that success and failure are but two sides of the same page.
