Development Pitch

The story is a thrilling tale of how Psyber (Psychological-cyber) weapons can be used in a new form of warfare. It talks about the currently available technology and how it can be used for manipulating an entire population and reducing an enemy to an indecisive onlooker. The story is set for execution in a span of 8 hours. A weapon is unleashed every hour in the non-confrontational warfare. The results of each weapon is showcased within the hour. The domino effects of the usage of such Psyber weapons result in a totally chaotic atmosphere that has the potential to bring any nation to its knees. The story also conveys the message that warfare is just not about calculations and there are possibilities for a lot of miscalculations resulting in unintended consequences. The story does not glorify a war but seeks to tell the audience that war cannot be an option in today's world. It also seeks to highlight the nature of how small, skilled teams can create havoc in a connected world. It serves an as eye opener for nation states to have countermeasures in place. Most importantly, the story does not talk about Pysber weapons in the future. It talks about existing technology and its usage. Each weapon used has a precedent in the real world.
