Strands is a humorous yet dark tale about friendship, jealousy and possession. Genetic scientist Helen Critteck rebuffs her co-workers, takes a strand of her own hair and secretly creates a stunning new friend and alter ego, Dr. Halley Hesperus. Halley is smart, dedicated and loves science- just like Helen. Unfortunately she is also friendly, outgoing and personable- not  part of the calculations. Helen’s initial delight sours as her ‘experiment’ begins to succeed all too well, and Helen discovers the darker side of her science and herself.
