Description (in English): 

This is the story of two women whose souls switch bodies during their surgery after a traffic accident they were both involved in. The story is told in a standalone iPad app, narrated in part by the sister of one of the women and in part through a series of documents that the sister finds or is given: the doctor's report of the surgery, emails and chat transcripts from people reacting to the soul-swapping, and various other Although the story is entirely linear, the illustrations and the feeling of opening documents on the screen make this short story well suited to the tablet reading environment. The style of writing is humorous and at times somewhat caricatured, though also raising large questions about identity and mortality.
