Based On: 
A Dream within a Dream by Edgar Allan Poe
Synopsis/Details: 

This is one of Poe's more surreal poems. He lived most of his life in death. His mother died, his wife died very young. So I decided to interpret this poem as a funeral scene where a man deals with the nightmare of denial and questions, not his life, but death itself.

The Writer: Lily Blaze

I write because I can. Screenwriting is my mobility aid to express my creativity and show my craft. I live with disability, but art has no limits. I've lived in four cities, travelled across North America, worked as a computer graphic designer since 1997, and I've been a visual artist all my life. In 2003, I was struck by chronic illness. Things happen. Plans change. My whole life changed. And now I'm a screenwriter. My short To Lucasta is now a beautiful film. I've opted out of the read request for the script, so everyone is free to check it out. https://youtu.be/jpaRvkgeSfg The Edge of Infinity, psychedelic dark fantasy feature script recognition: Prisma Semi-finalist Best Feature, Best...
