OK … you just made a Western. And you’re trying to think of a Title for it?

Real Definition of parallax (n)
par·al·lax [ párrə làks ]
- apparent change of position: an apparent change in the position of an object when the person looking at the object changes position.
Example: you just got bucked off your horse but before you hit the ground the horse also kicks you in the head, causing you catch a glimpse of your girlfriend leaving in a Cadillac.
- angle measuring star’s distance from Earth: the angle between two imaginary lines from two different observation points meeting at an astronomical object, used to measure the object’s distance from Earth
Example: when you regain consciousness you are out of the body floating in outer space. You can see planet Earth below you, but before you can yell: “There’s my house.” you get zapped by two passing UFOs.
Everything in Parallax quacks with Western flavor … except the name.
