Inspired by stories of oceanic gods and monsters, a maverick scientist explores the deep-sea and learns that the Polynesian myths of ancient gods, creation, and a “Tree of Life” at the ocean bottom are all too hauntingly true.

 

1-PAGE SYNOPSIS

REVISED: FRIDAY, 12/30/11 – 8:48 PM

 

“Renegade Landing” takes place during that desperate time in mankind’s history when an overpopulated Earth results in a desperate search for living space in the world’s oceans.


“The Aquaria” is a complex of undersea “skyscrapers” that stretch from the ocean bottom all the way up to the surface.  It is located in the Hawaiian Islands in an area referred to by the ancient natives as "The Renegade Landing" - a massive undersea crater that the Hawaiians have long believed is haunted by alien spirits. 
 

The majority of tenants occupying the massive “skyscrapers” are problem-solvers that include oceanographers searching for answers to pollution and food shortages, military agencies that must defend against foreign land-grabs, multi-national corporations seeking to develop medicines and high-tech solutions, astronomers seeking to better understand our universe, and hoteliers who conduct educational tours of the structures and surrounding waters. “The Aquaria” began as a utopian world for the best and brightest of human minds, as mankind scrambles to save an ocean that is suffering a very slow death.


Competition for limited space and resources creates conflict between the many tenants of "The Aquaria," and mankind's intrusion into the ocean deep has somehow awakened  the supernatural world. 

 

Bizarre creatures of the abyssal plain begin to reveal themselves in a myriad of varieties as never before seen. Surrounded by curious deep-sea life forms, the humans inhabiting “The Aquaria” suddenly find themselves being studied by the very lifeforms they have been dissecting and trying to understand.


Oceanographer VICTORIA MALU begins to discover that the ancient myths and legends of her Hawaiian ancestors - especially in regards to the undersea impact craters and anomalies known as “The Renegade Landing,” “The Cemetery Landslide” and “The Coffin Banks” - may very well be the long-hidden habitats of gods and goddesses who made their way to planet Earth in ancient times - each with opposing viewpoints and agendas - that brings the promise of an eternal hell if their differences are not minimized.

OBJECTIVES:  As with all of our projects, our goal is to: 

- EDUCATE: 

- Teach history and give our audiences some background into why things are the way they are. 

- Debunk the myths, hoaxes, and "fake news."

 

- INSPIRE:  We hope to create a sense of wonder to inspire a new generation of Americans to take action and do the right things.  Because our show's supporting characters is a dreamer who aspires to greatness, our audiences can follow their respective paths.

 

- OUR ACTIONS DEFINE OUR CHARACTER:  We need to show our audiences what road one has to travel in order to achieve our lifelong dreams.  Nothing is promised or guaranteed.  Nothing is free.  One has to suffer some pain to elevate one's life to the next level.

 

- CALL TO ADVENTURE:  When we are personally challenged by an evil person or called out by evil events (criminal activity, war, etc.) occurring within our community, we need to answer, or the evil will eventually reach us after it destroys our neighbors.
