3 stars

An interesting story about the nature of fear. An artist catches the eye of a gangster, who now regularly buys her paintings. One day, the gangster asks her to paint a picture based on a photo of his favourite childhood memory.

But the motive is science fictional and would involve a yearning for living a different life, when the numerous Sarah Pinskers have already lived multiple lives.
