Eliza Glassings is an 11-year old American girl living in Aviano, Italy. While otherwise a bright student, she tends to daydream a lot and who can blame her? Her imagination is pretty vivid, though things get a little crazy when she sleeps. The absurdities her mind is able to conjure up doesn't bother her too much, though she has an insecurity that her head could go to areas beyond her control.

One day after school though, an unexpected illness brings her into a coma. Now Eliza finds herself in a world that blurs the line between reality and pure fantasy, and logic clashes with surrealism. Anything is possible, though it's not for the best and the dark elements of the mind are realized. The worst part is that waking up is nearly impossible.

As Eliza gets tossed through scenario-to-scenario, each one more hellish than the last, an invisible, malevolent force seems to follow her at every turn. If she wants to escape this living nightmare, she might have to face the thing that torments her so.

E. Lamoreaux's picture

The Writer: E. Lamoreaux

I have been self-taught to be a professional screenwriter (although I did take a couple of classes along the way) and I have what it takes to deliver projects that are both unlike anything audiences have seen before and can easily go behind the camera. Because of my eclectic tastes in films and TV, I am able to work with a wide range of genres. In addition to being a devoted writer and hard worker, I am easy to work with and can take criticism. No matter how difficult the industry may be, the last thing I want to do is give up. Go to bio
