Seek High Concept Sci-Fi To Option


Should be achievable with less than $500k budget i.e. minimal cast and locations, no big 'extras' scenes.

Think "Restoration" or "Primer".

Synopsis

In 2020, for the first time in Muslmania, the capital of the Islamic forces, a new president was elected. Suleiman Aswad. An oil tycoon, he was a cruel and ruthless ruler.

The democratic forces crossed the desert border and faced the Islamic forces, which were ready for war. When the battle eventually began, neither side showed the other any mercy and soldiers on both sides died for lack of equipment, ineffective battle planning, and shortage of food, water and clothing. While the two armies fought, Hollywood superstar and entertainer, Barney Chaplin, was entertaining the democratic soldiers who were stationedin the desert. One night, he and his companion officers lost their way in the desert and were captured by the Islamic commando. Soldiers on both sides had begun to lose their motivation to fight and began to stage magnificent battles for media news. Aswad developed a plan whereby the captives’ fate depended on Barney’s ability to entertain everyone during his time in prison. Because of pressing public opinion to release the captives, Monro sent his strange holywood's commando force to the Islamic desert in an attempt to free the prisoners before their execution. The commando group was forced to act immediately to rescue the prisoners. Insanity was the order of the day throughout the world as the two presidents led the planet into World War III.

style: Silence of the Lambs

Genre: Psychological Fiction (Mystery / Suspense(

Log line

For the first, time in his life a police Lt. Faces "world of Absolute Evil"

This menacing story revolves around a cast of characters who exude depravity, sadism, Intriguing and hatred.

Synopsis

Set in :Westchester County, New York State, this menacing story revolves around a

cast of characters who exude depravity, sadism,Intriguing and hatred. And, to make matters worse, the unwitting victims of this adult egotism are innocent children whose only wrongdoing is that they are there.

Lieutenant Michael Holmes,a detective specializing in unsolved crimes,is investigating the case of missing child... seven year-old Isaac Menis!after a while the police found his corpse…he was murdered!!!

The investigation is complex and increasing pressure is put on the detectives to find suspects. The first candidate is identified : Joshua Solomon-the mysterious leader of a religious cult whose relationship with children raises cause for concern. However, Lt. Holmes’deputy, Wally, is not convinced that Solomon is guilty, at least not of the Isaac case.

As the investigation unravels we learn of the utter disfunctionality of Isaac’s family - his divorced mother and father and their respective new partners. But of all these rather unpleasant figures, it is his father Abraham who surpasses them all in the bitter and twisted stakes. It would be hard to imagine a character as full of resentment, anger and misogyny as this bit-part actor and model.

Another character in this hate-fuelled bunch who could have reason to want Isaac’s disappearance to remain permanent is the partner of Isaac’s mother, Gideon, a gynecologist, who sees the child as an interfering obstacle to his efforts to control and manipulates Isaac's mother?

Although we are told that this is a ‘Delving into the Darkness’, paradoxically there are some clues that allow us to understand (but not necessarily like) even the most distasteful characters in this book: Abraham was severely abused by his mother as a child, and Joshua, despite his abnormal behavior, seems to be a genuinely caring although person. Nevertheless, an ominous air pervades this book, re-enforced by sinister misinterpretations of the Old Testament and Nietzsche. No one is beyond suspicion.

Eventually a trial is held and Solomon finds himself in the dock. The trial is complex, but despite his best efforts, Solomon’sattorney’s defense is demolished at each turning. It is only at the end of the trial that the terrifying truth is exposed.

The story is told in a series of fast moving scenes that heighten the tension and carry the reader along to reach a cliff-hanging conclusion. Evil time is a plot that is gripping in its vivid portrayal of a society peopled by repulsive, self-seeking and, ultimately, psychotic characters.
