In the dystopian future where William Hearth lives, there are strength trials where the loser of the competition is killed. After seeming to get his life back after years of drug addiction and homelessness, William hits trouble again. What he doesn't know is that the future is about to change.



Short Summary

We meet a man who is calling for a taxi, it is flying through the air. He gets inside and realized that the person driving the car was a android or what the man calls "Craniums". They are human-like robots with transparent heads. The man, named William Hearth, goes to the local court house.

William Hearth's daughter, Paisley Hearth, has to fight in the coliseum against the leader of the country, a man named "The Brute". A brute he was. She knocks him out cold with a stone in a David and Goliath like moment.

Development Pitch

The hunger games did well, so my story might play out well as a series or a movie. It is a dystopian future of America. The book is a short story, but it doesn't mean the movie won't be good. I'm thinking we can go into William Hearth's past and show his struggle with addiction and homelessness. We can even show how Officer Ruth Jules started out and how the androids, "Craniums", came to be in the future. We can create how "The Brute" came into office. We can create the history of this world. It can be gripping, emotional, uplifting, and more. An underdog story of someone who struggled through life with a happy ending, getting everything they deserve. Everyone wants that. In these times, we need stories like these.
