Winning SHORT Screenplay Reading: Pandora’s Adversaries, by Jason Harley

My story addresses the dangers of anti-feminist sentiment, or the irrational hatred of any identifiable group, for that matter. There is a terrific opportunity here for a strong female hero in LENA, the protagonist. The story is heavily character driven and requires minimal special effects. The battle of wits between LENA and GRIFFIN, the antagonist, is central to the story and its climax.
