Film - Comedy/Drama
'Home from war, struggling to adjust or bond with his young son. His dead unit return to help'
Having not only had the horror of war, Craig had the added nightmare of being the only survivor when his unit was attacked. Now out of the military and trying to get to grips with the normal world, he's struggling. He has a thirteen year old son that he hardly knows, an ex who has moved on and a family that don't have time for him. Despite his past being what it is he would rather be in a war zone than home, until his old unit turn up. Never mind if they are ghosts or in his head, they help. They show him how to deal with his son, control his temper and live his life but can he let them go and do it on his own?
History and Birth.
This idea is in concept stage. The idea was inspired by EXorcism which is one of my other scripts. I was not sure at first because obviously the subject matter does not automatically yell 'comedy' but one of my favourite TV shows was M*A*S*H and they proved that you can mix serious and comedy (many other shows have also proved this). I am excited by this idea, I believe it will make a heart-warming comedy.
I have created the idea but not fully painted out and drawn the whole picture. I plan on doing that next before writing the script. I believe that this will make a very good low budget film.
