Mirror, Mirror, Show Me a Hero! (2016)

It is the year 2116 and the island of Barbados is under threat from the denizens of the Nether. The Overlords of the Web Colony have infiltrated all levels of Barbadian society with a view to eventually enslaving the entire population of this small nation. Shackled to machines that are slowly draining them of their collective memories, the people of Barbados have put their hope for salvation in the hands of 3 rather reluctant young people. In a desperate ploy to save their culture and country, the 3 youngsters will be catapulted through the eye of a hurricane back in time; their mission, to find a Weapon, a Tool and a Hero who will liberate Barbados, restore the Memories of the people and achieve true Independence for all.

A talkative old man helps a conflicted young boy make decisions about his future through the tales of a novice Obeah Man. The tales follow the Obeah Man and his skeptical business partner, Shelly, through their adventures with various clients: a lovestruck woman looking for marriage, an ambitious musician looking for a record deal, a greedy hotelier looking for wealth and a vain politician seeking re-election. It is a comedic, satirical tale which juxtaposes magic, faith and desire.
