Synopsis/Details: 

Peter Roberts awakens from an intense but incomplete nightmare to begin a journey of revelation, of the kind of person he is, has been, and should become.

For is Peter's dream predestination or foreshadowing? A condemnation for past indifference or an opportunity for atonement? When the time comes, does a new, better nature triumph over his life-long apathy?

"The Girl" says there can be a hero inside us all.

To make its point about choice and fate, I use some obtuse symbolism, including multi-faith imagery that is a little playful. But the goal is to inspire and to challenge, not sermonize.

With influences as varied as "Wild Strawberries", "The Machinist", and my own dreams, I think you'll enjoy this thought-provoking piece.

I am an incorporated businessperson operating as Integer Entertainment. I'm actively pursuing attachments for my smaller scale projects before I work my way up. While the status of my scripts here may read 'For Sale', I'm just as likely to be seeking producers/talent/investors to collaborate with as a co-producer or EP, wherein I'd be bringing my screenplay as well as package elements and maybe even some money to the table. In addition, with a decade of pitching behind me and being read hundreds of times, I may have connections to enhance the resources that you have available. Don't hesitate to approach me with this in mind. Flexibility, creativity and unconventional collaborations are... Go to bio
