Operation Untitled is a screenplay exploring the self-empowerment of the individual against the socio-political and religious forces that inform the hierarchy of a Catholic high school. The protagonist, Peter Charles who becomes known by the moniker “the Prophet,” is a hard-working student from a lower class background who’s infatuated by his school and society’s promise that hard work = success. When he learns that he loses a life-changing scholarship simply because the recipient, “the Golden Boy” Richard Harding, has influence, his faith in this system is shattered. His subsequent journey of rebellion creates a school-wide revolution and with the power it brings him, the Prophet has a fateful decision: to replace Richard as “the Golden Boy” or to break the cycle of this broken system forever.
