Production title: “They Sold Nightmares”
Writer/Producer: Hugo Lunny
Genre: Dark fantasy
Format: Feature film
Synopsis: Every society somehow starts. The Depths started here. Initial incarnations of man and his derivates gathered developing semblances of civilizations that would eventually build upwards. The tunnels were built while cities rose and humans began feeling in control, instead of the slaves they were bred to become. Eventually they became oblivious of their truth. The Popabawa and Kanashibari Guild for the control of the wretched have made their ignorance a certainty.
Centuries worth of toil and development have had the PKG fashion these rocks into something prestigious and pristine. The PKG premises are some of the most modern and admirable in The Depths. Their walls are smooth and designs deliberate. The premises seem to sprawl endlessly with no visible perimeter.
The PKG have consistently produced successful alumni specializing in nightmares. None as successful as Abdelaziz Subaghra or Donnie Krasznai. Both of whom practice very different forms of nightmares. Working in parallel circles, the former friends no longer speak or have cause to.
Abdelaziz is very much to himself, eliminating the outside world as he follows his choices beneath the city. Donnie on the other hand flaunts his talents and generates sizeable profits from his products’ sales.
Their lives remain distant until Abdelaziz is accused of tampering with Donnie’s nefarious services and forcing Donnie’s tame style of nightmare to go a step too far.
The story takes place below Reno’s gambling streets.
Logline: Rival nightmare peddlers in Reno, Nevada cross paths when their business ventures intersect.
