Synopsis/Details: 

After nearly drowning when he fell into a pool due to the negligence of his drunk mother, four-year-old BRUCE begins hearing voices and seeing ghosts. His father, DARREN, takes him to a medical facility called the Posthuman Project for help but soon realizes his mistake as the doctor in charge, TARA, tries to experiment on him without his approval. Darren and Bruce barely make it out of the facility and are forced to go on the run for the next 12 years before Tara and her crew catch up and kill Darren. A dirty cop, DETECTIVE MARTIN, returns Bruce to his mother, TABITHA, who refuses to believe that Bruce is in danger. As Tara gets closer, the voices and hallucinations become increasingly worse until they begin to spread to Tabitha and others. By the time Tabitha realizes that Bruce has been telling the truth, it’s too late and both she and Bruce are taken captive by the organization. Tara tries to get Bruce to turn on Tabitha by revealing to him that his drowning accident was her fault but the ghostly vision of his father, Darren, intercedes to remind Bruce that it was an accident and he needs to forgive her. Managing to get out of her restraints, Tabitha frees herself and Bruce and they escape the facility along with a list of similar facilities in other cities, determined to bring them all down.

The Writer: Mark McKee

At the age of six years old, I developed my first spec script for an untitled Batman film...it was terrible. For as long as I can remember, I've been enamored with the world of film, but growing up in a town that deemed the arts to be "illogical" can put quite a damper on your future hopes. I suppose it only makes sense that after working 10 years in higher education, that I would rediscover my love for writing. I, like many of you, am navigating the uncertainty and fear that can envelop any and all creatives, while thriving within the solitude of writing. I hope to get to know more of you in-between drafting and creating and editing and editing and editing some more. Go to bio
