Birth Of Life

A stockroom clerk becomes an accidental hero. While travelling to Hong Kong, James Robinson survives a plane crash which causes him to develop superhuman powers. Stranded in the Middle East, he walks straight into the middle of a conflict zone. Local militia groups learn of his special abilities and, with the threat of capture from both sides, James tries to evade his enemies. But with global implications at stake, other superpowers are at work who want his skills for their own military advantage, and will stop at nothing to get them.

Writer Statement

The script has been in development for about three years. Even though it is listed as my third, actually it is the second chronologically. As I had to put this aside for a while to wait for the inspiration to finish the story and develop other characters. I have a passion for human behaviour and especially the complex emotions inside us all. This particular story is about emotional and spiritual drive, with the great twists and turns of any adventure. I believe that imagination is the greatest gift given to us a species.
