Sci-Fi/Fantasy Testimonial – February 26 2019

To be honest I was just looking for festivals that might appreciate a good sci-fi story with a bunch of theme. I knew a lot of readers would miss the complexity of the play, but I was confident others would just enjoy the story at face value and perhaps even work out the theme.

Watch the Screenplay Reading: 

Earth has been decimated by climate change. When a cynical environmental scientist and his crew aboard the International Space Station make contact with a lush and resourceful alien planet, Earth’s warring nations fight to stake a claim.

CAST LIST:
