The Spotlight – Script In Progress October 2012

Story about a man who is diagnosed with a rare illness yet recovers. He feels its a miracle and has beaten all odds just from belief. But it turns out that he was actually just misdiagnosed by the hospital. And that his pain previously was psychological due to the bad news in his life – thus reversed by the good news.

He finds this out but doesn’t believe it, saying that it was his belief that cured him.  And with this, he starts to feel worse, genuinely getting worse, but in tandem with his denial. With his belief he gets sicker and sicker, more disillusioned, irrational, and enters a new type of illness of the mind and body. And what he believes gets more and more warped beyond any rationale.  Very main character based and a borderline horror / drama screenplay.
