Accuracy of Book Profile

The profile looks perfect. It’s clear and complete.

Draw of Story

The author describes the environment and the suffering of the girl very well, almost placing us in the middle of the situation.

Possible Drawbacks

No, the story happens very concisely, with dynamic structure, making each page interesting to the reader.

Use of Special Effects

THE STORY DOES NOT RELY ON SPECIAL EFFECTS

Primary Hook of Story

The hook is the bubble in which each individual lives in the modern world. All of them facing their cell phones almost 24/7 and simply forgetting to look around and be more human.

Fanbase Potential

I would not say that it would attract a large fanbase, but the narrative has the potential to attract a niche of people with interest in feminist stories about the problems of today's society and the individualism of humanity.

Awards Potential

Yes, especially in drama short film festivals.

Envisioned Budget

LOW BUDGET

What’s New About the Story

It is an original way of showing the carelessness and inattention of today's society regarding the surrounding ones.

Lead Characters

The main characters are all women, and all are directly or indirectly wrapped in this urgency that today's society imposes. The brave girl fights for her and her baby's life, but practically in vain amid a crowd of unaware people. The blind woman who helps her is a kind of heroine who does so without waiting for the title of bravery, but because she still keeps a little of humanity, and the doctor who saves the baby is also a woman who is still surprised by life.

Uniqueness of Story

It is not a rare gem, but it has the potential to make it reflect and thrill.

Possible Formats

Film: Studio, Indie, Streaming TV Series: Network, Cable, Limited Run / Mini-Series, Streaming

Analyst Recommendation

CONSIDER

Justification

The author can make us think about our own place in society and, as an urgency and a need to always be connected and updated, take the focus of the human being here and now. It is as if virtual life has a more significant weight than the real world around them. And this reflection is very clear and impactful through the story of a young woman who gives birth to her baby in the middle of a subway station. Despite a lot of people nearby, she is absolutely alone. From the moment a woman is writhing in pain in labor, but no one notices because they are all entertained with their cell phones, it is the reflection that we fail as a society, especially for seeing that woman die after so much suffering when she could have been saved if anyone had watched her earlier. It is still quite interesting that the author chooses a blind woman as the only person in the place to realize the tragic situation of that girl. From the sound, she can "see" what many haven't seen. It is a strong (and unfortunately believable) plot with an intense appeal, making us reflect on humanity.
