ABOUT THE STORY
The film follows Frank, a low level employee working for the leading technology development company CEREBRA TECH in the year 2015.
At work Frank is disconnected with his co-workers. He has become engulfed into this society where every single person is constantly plugged into their personal Cerebra Tech C-Bra phones.
The one place where Frank desires to communicate on a more physical level is at home, but his wife is too caught up in her device to value any communication that is not digital. Frank also begins to notice that his wife resents their “lower middle class” status- mainly due to the fact that they can not afford the most recent version of the C-Bra (The C-Bra7).
One day Frank receives a promotion to a top secret section of Cerebra Tech. On his first day he witnesses an experiment on a new C-Bra. The experiment appears to be going wrong, but the scientists assure Frank that everything is A-OK.
Eager to tell his wife of his promotion, Frank gets home and discovers that she has decided to leave him for a man in a higher class. Devastated, Frank tries to figure out what he can do to win back his woman. He is reminded of the C-Bra that he witnessed being worked on earlier in the film, and he figures that might be a good enough gift for his wife. He goes to the lab, and is able to recover it. He finds that it is a prototype of the C-Bra7.2- making it newer then anything else previously released by Cerebra Tech.
He returns home to his wife packing up, and he presents her the C-Bra7.2. This effectively wins her back. She is astounded that Frank managed to get the 7.2- assumably the most perfect C-Bra in existence. She powers it on, plugs herself in, and a surge of power travels through her- stopping her heart.
Frank is beside himself- he realizes that this is all his doing. As he tries to figure out what his next actions are, the C-Bra7.2 powers on and begins to sustain his wife’s life. Not only that- but the device is slowing her brainwaves down, making her a Zombie-like being. Now with his wife’s life in his hand, Frank is forced to make a choice. He could unplug her- which would kill her as the C-Bra is sustaining her life, or he could let her continue to live as a Zombie.
In the end he makes the choice to let her live, but little does he know that every other C-Bra phone that this 7.2 connects with becomes infected with this same “virus” that took his wife.
And society crumbles...

Thanks so much everyone!
Risks and challenges
The greatest challenge we will face in making this film will be the production design. With this film taking place in the future we will have to take the steps to make sure that everything that is on the screen represents the time. In order to make sure this is not a big issue we are taking the steps to storyboard every single shot. This way we will have a much better idea of what we need in terms of props, costumes, color, sound, ect.
If you decide to fund our film and would like to request copies of the storyboards, send me an email! We are able to send digital copies of them.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
