LOGLINE: Disillusioned about the nature of existence, THE MAN/THE WOMAN embarks on a journey between connected worlds to learn “the truth”, guided by characters playing various roles in the machine of the universe. What he (or she) learns ultimately forces a decision regarding his/her place in life.


•THE MAN/THE WOMAN: Male/Female, 25-35. Disparaged, disillusioned. Moves around in a semi-trance like he/she is in a dream, which might be the case, given the events going on. Looking for “the truth.”

•THE OLD MAN/THE OLD WOMAN: Male/Female, 45+. Cheery, in a mean-spirited way. Has experienced the crisis the protagonist now faces, and comes out the other side. Apparently homeless, dresses in an amalgam of strange clothing.

•THE BARISTA: Male, 20-35. Incredibly muscular, more than a little hostile towards his clients. The gatekeeper to THE MAN’s journey.

•THE LIBRARIAN: Female, 50+. Frumpy and grumpy. Does not understand the protagonist’s existential search.

•THE COSTUMER: Male, 45+. One of the artists behind the construction of the world. Works 24 hours a day with total concentration.
