Project Title


Project Logline

In a future utopia where citizens must take a daily pill that makes them euphoric, one resident skews the balance by accidentally going off his meds, committing the community's first murder, inspiring a sexual reawakening or two, and leading a revolt against the 'perfect' society.

This Meets That


Why Read It?

More than anything else, this script is one thing: hilarious. The premise is wild and intriguing at the same time, and the writer absolutely accomplishes their lofty goals by telling the story in a way that is constantly amusing. We go along with the insanity of this movie because the masterful maintenance of an offbeat tone backs it up. It's never scared to go 'too far,' and the dialogue is zippy and fresh. Nothing ever lets up in the script as the action, comedy, and misadventures keep plowing forward until you reach the end.
