The Near Death Experience



Page Count: 



Age Rating:

After barely surviving a brutal attack, a widowed suicide hotline operator "sees the light" and inflicts the same experience upon his callers to enlighten them, as a way of fulfilling his true purpose in life. But when he falls for the wife of one of his callers, his "purpose" changes and his violent, obsessive ways tailspin out of control.
All Accolades & Coverage: 

The script has been optioned twice and was one week away from principal photography before one of the producers went MIA, hence stalling production and, eventually, putting the kibosh on production completely. Was budgeted to shoot for under 100k.
