Synopsis for the psychological thriller screenplay “ Dreamworld” “Josh’s world of dreams awakens to frightening reality”

Josh Anderson, a young disabled solider, undergoes a radical new therapy to relieve his stressful nightmares. He is constantly haunted by the images of a terrorist suicide bomber who killed hundreds including his fellow soldiers in Afghanistan. The new therapy called Dreamworld will hopefully eliminate Josh’s reoccurring nightmares in which he is confronted by the suicide bomber that he saw moments before the suicide bomber entered the restaurant in Kabul and detonated his bomb. Josh the only survivor of the bomb blast is haunted by guilt and depression.

Once inside Dreamworld Josh is sent back in time to happier days of his life, his “SafePlace,” before the suicide bomber haunted his memory and dreams.

She possesses some mysterious power in his dreams and Josh is drawn to her and begins to fall in love with the elusive Lisa.

Dr. Meldon does not believe that Josh could have a real person inhabiting his dreams, so Josh sets out to investigate and to try to find out who this Lisa is or was in real life.
