One beat of a butterfly's wings is all it takes to set in motion a chain of events, over the course of one day, which will change people's lives - and end people's lives. From the father and son diving in Hawaii to the teenagers surfing the bullet train...from the kidnapped girl in Rio to a bear attack in Japan...the chaos knows no bounds.
Butterfly effect: The scientific theory that a single occurence, no matter how small, can change the course of the universe forever. A father and son diving off the coast of Hawaii, with the sharks closing in. A scientist in a forest under attack from a savage bear. A young girl who has been kidnapped by drug dealers in Rio. The teenagers surfing on top of a speeding bullet train. For them, and many others, things will never be the same again. Some will live. Many will die. All are connected. The action is non-stop in this tense and compelling adventure.

About Matt Dickinson
Matt Dickinson is a writer and film maker with an enduring (and sometimes dangerous) passion for wild places and even wilder people. He was trained at the BBC and has subsequently filmed many award winning documentaries for National Geographic television, Discovery Channel and Channel 4. As a director/cameraman he has worked with some of the world's top climbers and adventurers, joining them on their expeditions to the Himalayas and beyond. Along the way he has survived some life threatening dramas; an avalanche in Antarctica, a killer storm on Everest and a night time 'grizzly bear' attack in the Yukon which wasn't quite what it seemed (actually they were beavers!). Matt's proudest moment was filming on the summit of Mount Everest having successfully scaled the treacherous north face of the world's highest peak.
