Synopsis: The “Exaptations” film revolves around Kyron Roundtree, a man that watches relatively harmless crime taking place, sometimes with snacks. He can sense when they’re about to occur and lavishes taking a closer look. He rarely bothers contacting authorities unless people’s lives are at risk.
Whenever he feels his premonitions emerge he also has time to forewarn authorities for prevention, until one day he’s wrong and his perverse habit of watching humanity at its worst proves him nothing more than a helpless bystander. He watches as the crime he envisions Salvatore Orig failing to complete is successful and fatal.
Rather than stay anonymous as he previously would, Kyron cannot forgive himself without taking action. He should have intervened to help an innocent and helpless individual, so he decides to pursue the perpetrator, Salvatore.
Logline: When am almost psychic man watches crimes unfold witnesses a brutal attack and fails to intervene, he’s forced to confront his complicity and embarks on a dangerous quest for justice.
Tagline: Sometimes being a bystander is not an option.
