To be read backwards is about a man's life starting when he dies. It's also about self-discovery, humanity, and the mystery of the world.
To be read backwards is the author's fourth short story to be made into a feature film. Mr. Matthew Baker's first short story, Transition, is being turned into a film by Amazon. His second short story, The Appearance, is being made with Makeready while The Picture Company produces that feature. Last, Netflix is making a film adaptation to his story titled Life Sentence.
