Development Pitch

Kaytha has found something, and humanity won’t survive without it. In the future, global corporations DeCorp and EnerCon have made interstellar travel possible and space flight available to all humanity. When an industrial accident inside one of DeCorp’s spacecraft factories sets off an apocalyptic chain of events, all of Earth is at risk. Unaware of the growing chaos, headstrong pilot Kaytha Morrow receives a cryptic message from her father, an aerospace engineer who died one year earlier. As the global evacuation begins, DeCorp's ruthless leader Sint Argum moves to exploit the catastrophe. Meanwhile, Kaytha finds herself inextricably tied to the growing disaster, having discovered what may be the key to saving humanity from the tyranny of DeCorp’s evil leader.
