Project Synopsis
Lukas Markovic, a former special ops officer with a digitally enhanced brain, wakes up in a prison 300 years in the future. During an interrogation with the prison ward, he is reminded of the violent crimes he has committed in the past. Haunted by these memories, Lukas must decide how he wants to move on in the world.

Character 1
Lukas Markovic

Male
Description
After being put "under" for 300 years, Lukas wakes up in the year 2320. He is an ex special ops officer who became a mercenary and worked for multiple extremist groups in missions to destroy humanity. His brain is digitally enhanced, meaning he has access to the cyberspace every waking moment and this has made him lose sight of humanity. On the outside, he is a tough, intimidating soldier who looks and sounds menacing.
Character 2
Dennis Higgs
Age
30s-40s
Gender
Male
Description
Dennis is the prison ward who gives Lukas a threatening speech before his release. Dennis is pretentious, unsuspecting, and prideful of his position in the prison. He tries to sound powerful and wise because he thinks he has control over Lukas.
Character 3
Hologram Lady
Age
20s

Female
Description
This character will appear on screen as a hologram video that is pre-recorded, which will be shown to Lukas when he wakes up. The role is similar to a flight attendant presenting the safety demonstration to passengers. She gives instructions and information in a calm, welcoming manner.

Description
The prison guard will wake Lukas and bring him to the interrogation room. He then watches over him throughout the conversation.
