Get to know the winning writer:

What is your screenplay about?

It is about three tourists who are from different racial background. They meet accidentally in the hotel elevator, and raised an issue that takes our ‘convulsing’ universe to the operations’ theaters.

This worrisome and dangerous affecting issue raised is how the world is enmeshed with unfairness, pretense, discrimination, abuse, terrorism, killings, cold wars, leadership corruption and others. The 911 invasion is still ever fresh in memories of Americans and the world. France was recently shockingly shaken by serial terrorist attackers. Because of the deviance of one man, so many innocent Syrians, pitiably the children are now abject, wandering, disillusioning refugees all over. What about the uncanny rate of rapes and victims’ killings in countries? What about racism that is spreading with no regards? What about strictly meriting standards that are falling? What about religion and politics creating hate and divisions within countries and among countries? What about insincere leadership but corruptions causing more poverty on the people in countries?, and so on.

Just has Ade, one of the three tourists lamented and urged, “What’s happening folks? A faster development has to stand up, come up with ideas to correct this ongoing wrong inhuman world”.

These three tourists with their #RIGHTTHEWRONGWORLD Campaign and the explosive supports swing into working actions in the screenplay against this raised, worrisome issue.

What genres does your screenplay under?


Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

It should to significantly and globally address the issue being raised and which teamed up these three tourists in the screenplay. And upon making the movie global, watch and frequently talk about, the sense of the people across in their age brackets will be redefined to creating and henceforth living together in a new fair, peacefully safe and jointly progressing universe. REMEMBER, WE HAVE A WORLD TO LIVE AND LEAVE BEHIND FOR GENERATIONS’ NEXT. WHAT TYPE OF WORLD SHOULD IT BE? THIS BURNING AND WORRISOME WORLD OR A NONE TENSED AND FAIR WORLD?
