Noah & Saskia

Show Summary

Welcome to the Noah & Saskia guide at Saskia doesn't get it. All she did was go into a chat room seeking revenge on a guy who stole her music. Yet what she ended up with was the most important relationship in her life, with the most amazing person. His name is Max Hammer, and after their first big meeting on-line, Saskia feels like she's known him her whole life. He seems to know everything that's going on in her head, in her music, and better yet, in her soul. He seems to have all the "S's" - strong, smart, sensitive and sensible. And best of all, he sees those same qualities in her. Yep, Saskia's relationship with Max is perfect - or it would be, if he wasn't in the UK and she wasn't in Australia, and if he didn't think she was somebody completely different. You see, Saskia has created an alter ego that she uses on-line. Her name is Indy and she's everything Saskia isn't - self-assured, carefree and sexy. And while she initially uses Indy as a mask, Saskia starts to realise that it's an easy way to explore the parts of herself that are blooming way down deep, the parts of herself she can't express any other way. Not yet, at least. And Saskia knows that if Max found out who she really is - a rather prickly, defensive, shabby looking teenager - the most fantastic friendship of her life would be all over in an instant. That is, if Max was who he claimed to be, which of course he's not. In reality, Max is a fourteen year old dweeb named Noah, and he has no illusions. He knows that if Indy ever learned the truth, she would run screaming. They're partners in Noah's on-line comic, and they're a great team creatively - he takes care of the images, she takes care of the music. Indy is a great listener when Noah has a problem, and she thinks his advice is cool. All he has to do is make sure she never finds out who he really is. But that's okay, Noah's used to living a double life - geeky little brother of the school football hero by day, super-confident cyber marauder by night. "Noah & Saskia" is about a little lie that leads to a bigger truth - that who you say you are is usually who you want to be.moreless
