Andy Byrne's DISCONN - Top 50 in ISA Fast Track Fellowship III
"Disconn" is the story of Jenna, a woman struggling to fit into her life in a mental utopia where people pay a hive-mind product to manage and medicate their lives. But her attempt to disconnect brings her into conflict with her instincts, her numbed husband and the manipulators of this contorted society.
"Disconn" is the first in a series of stand-alone sci-fi titles Andy is writing over the next three years. Its a project aimed at delivering sci-fi features described as "sci-fi with a voice that can be made for a price".
"Disconn" is also currently in the SCREENCRAFT quarter-finals. Another of Andy's features, THE STATION, was a TOP FOUR FINALIST in BlueCat's 2016 Joplin Award.
