​Rebels in a future England must enlist the help of a disgraced scientist to help them hack into a cybernetic assassin who has been sent to kill them.

2099, two soldiers wind through a derelict building. Amongst the refugees they pass, a young girl watches a scruffy man (The Technician) greedily eat a sandwich, while handcuffed to a table. The soldiers unlock him and march him to a room. Inside, a bodybag lies on a mortuary table. The Technician is joined by The Colonel, a middle-aged Asian woman and her trusted bodyguard, the Henchman, a strong and formidable black man with a scar. In a world where the rich get upgraded with cybernetics making them practically immortal, the Colonel looks to even the field. She has discovered the secret to democratising this technology but needs the Tech to extract data from the cybernetic being in the
body bag. She offers the Technician redemption.
The Technician opens the bag, revealing a badly-beaten cybernetic woman near death. She's alive but her nanobots can't regenerate her due to an inhibitor chip.The Technician discovers the mark of Ehud on her left arm - she's an assassin. The cyborg orchestrated the situation to infiltrate the base of operations. Removing the chip starts a countdown before the young woman regenerates and kills them. A fight breaks out. With the three distracted, the woman wakes up.

The Writer: Neil McLarty

Script supervisor by day and award winning screenwriter and director by night. Fan of Hitchcock, Friedkin, Carpenter, Spielberg, Raimi and more. Sci-fi, Horror, suspense and the high concept. Believer that the kitchen sink is for washing dishes and compelling cinema comes from compelling characters. Will write a proper bio soon or never. More likely never. Go to bio
