Andy is willing to try everything to stop smoking, even the hypnosis, despite his being skeptical.
After the treatment he wakes up in his fifteen year old body during a day in high school, conscious of the memories piled up during his life.
This trip to the past – at first believed by Andy useful to avoid to smoke his first cigarette – becomes more deep and emotional: Andy is able to see his family by a different perspective (with a mixture of love and regret) due to him being grown up, and in the end this will sort out as the key experience.
In this context the theme of the man who is again young is useful to show the change of point of view in the most situations (for example when he wants to go to a party) and the change in his behavior.
The graphic novel tells about growing up and about family and relationships – being able to tell both the past and the future of the characters; this way to look at past events as from above is useful to tell apart the meaningful experiences, people and events.
