Ask me anything
Every story has at least one protagonist. Ours is the titular character, ALEXANDER MASTERSON.
Alexander (played by Tosin Morohunfola) was once a promising young writer. Like many people, Alexander has found himself disillusioned with his own dream, and pulled into the undertow of corporate America. The branch manager of a bank in his home town, Alexander is watching the sand trickle through the hour glass of his life.
Alexander’s life changes course, however, when an old friend runs into him. The friend offers, no insists, on passing some information onto a powerful acquaintance in an effort to reignite Alexander’s dream. Under the auspices of financial security from the sale of his book, Alexander takes a meeting.
The meeting is a success. Alexander has found a financier, and hope, not only for his fiscal horizons, but also for his dream.
Unfortunately things are not entirely as they seemed. In his haste, Alexander has overlooked a critical section of his contract. His name will not adorn the cover. He has been reduced to a nameless ghost writer.
Now Alexander is at a crossroads. Take the money, a substantial sum, and abandon his dream, this time for good, or stand against a media magnate who outmatches him legally, financially and physically.
Whatever choice he makes, we know one thing: since he made his decision three years ago, he has been missing, ruled death in absentia. Has our protagonist taken his own life as presumed? Was fowl play involved? Was it something else entirely?
