A Tale that Needs Telling
Lucy is an orphaned loner trying to forget her past. The kids at school say she’s a nut case, but they don’t understand how hard it is to make friends when you’re staring down the forces of darkness.
Her only acquaintance is an imaginary friend, and he’s not a friend at all. Scarecrow is her worst enemy. He’s got a death grip on her dreams, leveraging his legions of ghouls and goblins to harvest her fear.
Is she the victim of an overactive imagination, or is there something more?
Enter the misfits, a rag tag bunch of outcasts just like Lucy. Her newfound friends may be nerds, geeks, and dweebs by day, but they’re superheroes by nightmare, and together, these misfits might be all that Scarecrow can handle.
The reviews are in!
Only A Dream is one of the best screenplays I have read this year – and I have read hundreds. We have great characters, many thrilling scenes, excellent character arcs, escalating tension, lots of scares and thrills, a brilliant first 10 pages (something that is so important but often not achieved) and not a single page was a boring read. The action set pieces were great and kept on coming. The pages emoted well too. And the ending was brilliantly handled. RECOMMEND!
