LOGLINE: A homeless man returns home to his sister who lives in Los Angeles during the middle of an international experiment in nanotechnology.

STATUS: A rough script has been written. Serious rewrites are required. This project is currently on-hold.

PLOT SUMMARY: After returning home to his sister, a man gets a job clearing rubble for what will be the world’s first growing building. Using nanotechnology, a Chinese firm has leased Los Angeles from the U.S. government in order to conduct their experiment. However, the nanotech has a critical developmental flaw and things don’t turn out as expected.

MOTIVATION: It’s an exploration of the convergence between technology and international politics in a post-apocalyptic landscape that is California.
