Synopsis/Details: 

MULDER leads something of a double life: During the day he is a freelance graphic designer, attempting to find someone to date such as IZZY, a girl he meets on a dating app. At night, he is a very popular pop culture vlogger who directs online harassment campaigns toward filmmakers and celebrities who make diverse or inclusive work. He also has an internet feud with ORSON DANIELS, a progressive pop culture vlogger who constantly attacks everything Mulder loves, especially his favorite sci-fi franchise Star Fortress and its creator GEORGE KAUFMAN.

One day, his fellow vlogger DREW invites him to lead an internet discussion with George.. During the discussion, Mulder criticizes the Laramie Corporation, the new owners of Star Fortress, for sacrificing storytelling for diversity. George disagrees and this turns into an argument in which George doxxes Mulder, leaving his toxicity exposed to the world. Drew breaks all contact with Mulder, no one wants to hire him anymore, leaving him depressed. Fans try to contact him, but he wishes to cut them even further from his life after seeing how racist they are. Republican CONGRESSMAN EVANS wishes to have him be part of his re-election campaign as youth outreach, but despite many people asking him to get involved in politics before, Mulder refuses, thinking Evans is an elitist and opportunist.

He decides to cut himself out of the internet and enjoy life in the real world. He attempts to reconnect with Izzy but she shuns him. HARRY, his brother tells him that he can make a change for the better. Mulder closes his old YouTube channel and opens a new one, aiming for it to have a positive spin. Izzy becomes aware of this new change and asks him on a date. They go out together and he helps her with her ASMR videos. They get physical in their relationship if not romantic. One night, a fan of Izzy asks to have a selfie taken with her. During a date, JACOB harasses them, accusing Izzy of being a bad ally. Mulder defends her but they get into a violent altercation until Izzy intervenes. She breaks up with Mulder. Mulder interrogates Jacob and tells him that Orson led an online campaign against Mulder and Izzy. Mulder decides to seek revenge and gets into shape, and buys a realistic replica of a Star Fortress sword. He internet stalks Orson until he finds out he frequents an art house theater in Los Angeles. Mulder travels to LA, but once he gets close to Orson he can’t bring himself to attack him, but a paranoid and scared Orson publicly beats up Mulder and gets arrested. A recovering Mulder goes back home with Harry. Izzy calls him, asking him about what happened and quickly catches on that he did it to avenge her. She tells him she didn’t want this, and asks him to stay away from her.

Congressman Evans contacts Mulder again and this time, he accepts to appear with him on a local news show. During the show, Mulder interrupts Evans and announces he will primary him. Months go by and Mulder wins the primary. Izzy goes on a movie date with a man called KENNETH, and both have an intense argument about the movie they saw. On her way home, she encounters Mulder who appears to be stalking her. She ignores him. Once home, she enjoys a film and gets a call from Kenneth, asking her out again. She accepts. He apologizes for coming across as an asshole during their earlier date, and she waves it off by saying “It’s only a movie.”

The Writer: Oscar Moreno

Produced bilingual Mexican writer and filmmaker from the U.S./Mexico border. My life here has taken me from witnessing the horrors of violence to the joy of seeing its survivors lead happy lives, and experiencing what it's like to be a musician and to soak up the moments of love and weirdness you can find here. My passion for storytelling has stemmed from filmmaking and impacted different aspects of my life. I’m mainly focused on writing and making the kinds of gritty and mesmerizing thrillers, horror movies and sci-fi that I’d stay up watching late at night as a teenager. But I also love powerful drama and believe all of these flavors can be combined and provide an exciting experience for... Go to bio
