"Elvis" tackles on adults themes such as drug abuse, more specifically meth, and losing a loved one. The story is about a recovering meth addict named Daisy who loses her blind daughter (Cecilia) in a car accident. To deal with the pain and grief of losing a loved one; Her health takes a devastating toll as she resorts back to being an addict. While mourning the loss of her daughter, she sees hallucinations of the "King of Rock and Roll"... Elvis Presley. She believes that her only option to survive this cycle of pain is to become him... impersonate him. Call it a delusion of grandeur or a strenuous manic episode, Daisy strives to prove to the world that she's Elvis. Will she ever resolve her identity issues? Will she choose to accept the harsh reality?

I believe that the musical numbers and the heartbreaking reality of losing someone special will resonate with a large audience. And of course, who doesn't want to see Elvis Presley on the big screen?

The Writer: Prathit Reddy

Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia... Quite an irony considering it means the fear of long words! No, I don't have that particular phobia, but truth be told, I also hate "big" words. But as a Screenwriter, there's a particular audience you're trying to connect to... they want you to come to the point; I believe I can keep it short and sweet! I'm quite young, and there's just so much left to learn and explore! But when you're really, really passionate about something. ( Yes, I did repeat the same phrase twice... Epizeumixis?) You won't stop until you get it. They say that the screenwriter's secret weapon is patience. I hope I have enough. Go to bio
