When we first met Erica Strange a year ago, she was single, working a dead-end job, and had little hope for the future. A "chance" meeting with the mysterious Dr. Tom altered her life when he began allowing her to travel back in time to make some changes and get a "do-over" with her past regrets. She relived a high school dance, went back to the moment when she lost her virginity, faced off against an intimidating college professor and even revisited her Bat Mitzvah. But when Erica defied Dr. Tom's trust by attempting to change the circumstances surrounding the death of her brother, Leo, she was left at a crossroads, not knowing if she'd ever see her therapist again.
Erin Karpluk (The L Word, The Bionic Woman, Godiva) is back in the second installment of the Being Erica series. Smart, pretty and in love, Erica's life is finally going somewhere. But that doesn't mean she's done with therapy. Dr Tom is back to take her through more of her past regrets...and a few of his own.
Back in high school, Erica thought she'd grow up, meet 'the' guy, get 'the' career, have a couple of beautiful, talented children and ride off into the sunset. But somehow, it never happened. Now she has the chance of a lifetime. After a series of mishaps, she finds herself in hospital where she meets the mysterious Dr Tom - a therapist who seems to know a lot about her. Dr Tom issues Erica a challenge; if she wants to fix her life he can help, but once she's committed, she can't back out. Desperate, Erica accepts his terms, and finds herself flung back into her own past. A young person in full possession of her adult mind, this is Erica's opportunity of a lifetime. By making different choices can she alter her past and transform her present? Funny, tragic and uplifting in equal parts, this is a drama about the ways we hold ourselves back from following our dreams.
