“With the General on his way, hundreds of characters, dozens of stories still to restore, all I keep thinking about... is Cinderella’s sock.”

Stories all over the world are under attack. Pages are going blank in a pandemic so big, the government’s involved. That’s where SynCryn comes in.

Not an ordinary lab, SynCryn has the original narrative DNA for every story on ice and a plan to save the world from story obliteration. It’s an easy rebootilization process... so long as there aren’t any glitches in the software, or the director doesn’t go crazy, or the stories thaw out too quickly, or pirates get loose.

If none of those things happen, it’s foolproof.

A full length extravaganza for middle school. Parts for everyone, and we mean everyone.
