Machine Man - The Movie

SYNPOSIS A typical day behind the wheel of a car for most people quickly turns into chaos and distress for thirty-something BEN LYLE. Driving to meet MIRA, at a local coffee shop, Ben is distracted for a split second when his cell phone falls to the floor and his car slams into something. Rattled, he thinks he may have hit someone. He gets out of the car to check on his victim, only to find there’s no one there.

Was this experience real or is he having irrational fears making him believe that horrible things are occurring in his world? The fear is creating anxiety so strong that it begins to consume him and take over his life. Thoughts of harming those he loves most becoming increasingly more real and terrifying.

The symptoms worsen when Ben learns of his father’s passing. Overwhelmed with guilt and remorse for something catastrophic he did to his father as a child, Ben soon spirals out of control when he discovers that he will no longer have the opportunity to properly reconcile the tragic event.

The anxiety creates another huge obstacle in fulfilling what his heart has been telling him for quite some time - that he’s in love with Mira and wants to be with her. As his internal conflict escalates, he fights it with everything he’s got. He must struggle to get his mind under control simply to appear normal and not lose the most important person in his life. He has to reach inside of himself and find courage he never knew existed for his greatest discovery in his life so far… hope.
