In a large cube-like room with nothing but tiles of square tessellations, Pandora wakes up with no recollection of how she got there. Desperately, she tries to find a way out to no avail. The only person to give her any sort of assistance is Quinn, a mysterious girl that has come to peace with being confined in the box. She claims that it's a toy belonging to the Gyral, a creature trying to solve the puzzle from the outside for eternity. While she knows a secret button that activates a way out, she will not make things easy for Pandora, giving her mundane tasks and testing her patience. To make matters worse, the button in question is on a hard-to-reach area in the cube and it can only be easily found once the cube rotates enough times, something that does not happen very often.

As Pandora's desperation to find the button escalates and as her grip on sanity loosens, not helped by Quinn's immature actions, she may soon find out that the cube is not as it seems. Maybe the trick in putting together the pieces lies in her own memory...

The Writer: Craig E. Zecko

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
