Left Behind is a psychological thriller based on a scarred journalist who is trying to finish his next article against left handers. In this story world, the usage of left hand is seen as abnormal and is forbidden. The protagonist, Richard Greene has resigned himself to live a regretful life due to societal pressures and legal prohibition.
