Title: Broken Chain
Author: Clancy, Jonathan
Abstract: In our near future the renting of peoples bodies has commoditized into a bizarre beauty industry. Sibyl, a young model for a popular bodyleasing company, uncovers a twisted conspiracy forcing her to investigate this industry where even the most basic principles of beauty, control and identity have become distorted. Broken Chain is a featurelength science fiction screenplay, which utilizes elements of the murder mystery genre to explore a fantastical reality that echoes many of the issues of consumerism and commercialized beauty that we face today. The world of Broken Chain is intended to be one which the audience could find both intriguing and repulsive, as the film depicts how values of a society can be so easily altered by technology and industry, in particular the beauty industrys impact on our sense of identity and attitude towards our own bodies.
