About the Event
What if the oxygen that you breath is not for keeping you alive but for killing you slowly?
What if you are being incubated in your "Mother's" womb on Earth to be born in a different planet later on?
What if you find out that you are the virus on Earth who is being eliminated now?
There are so many 'What if's to think of without a concrete answer!
Imagine yourself creating a movie with your own voice, having it streamed on Amazon or Netflix, winning film awards and having your film poster and your photo enlarged, printed and placed on a large well lit hoarding/bill board at a prime location in the heart of a metro city.
Write a short story with a vivid imagination of "What if" the mundane and ordinary things in life are not actually true and the reality is some thing else.
If your script is not ready, you may book your tickets now to block your ticket category and send your scripts latest by 31st May'20.
