Logline: 
When the planets in the solar system align with the sun, a father at the beach with his daughter is transported to a realm of suffering and given a glimpse of his own personal hell.
Synopsis/Details: 

If Hell exists, what is it like? Is it pitchforks, pointy-eared demons and vats of boiling oil or something uniquely personalised for each individual? That latter is explored by Mark’s new short script, A Taste of Hell.

A rare cosmic event results in all the planets in our solar system aligning behind the sun. This causes the Earth to shift for a few minutes into a hell dimension. Everyone on the planet gets to experience a brief taste of their own unique hell, with fatal results. Our story focuses on an average guy on the beach enjoying the day with his daughter. In such idyllic circumstances, what could possibly go wrong?
