A Conscience is a Terrible Thing to Waste
This is a casting call for actors interested in being part of a student film.
The Premise-
Peter and Jennifer are a young couple struggling with finances and looming debt. One
day, Peter receives a mysterious package from his distant billionaire father. The package
contains a strange watch-like device and an ominous set of instructions. If Peter turns on the
device, it will start glowing, and he has until the light goes out to make a decision: receive his
massive inheritance, which will cause a random person to die, or forfeit the money and prevent
any harm from occurring. Peter turns on the device, but as he interacts with the people in his
life, an uneasy feeling starts to sink in. Will Peter claim his money, or will his guilt get the better
of him? He’d better decide fast, because the clock is ticking. (Genre: Dramatic Science Fiction)
