SHORT FILM'S AND NOVEL'S SYNOPSIS

A country in bankruptcy, a political system enslaved by the economic powers that
be, where cases of corruption become widespread and a society becomes more
and more resentful. In this society there are people with nothing to lose who
decide to break the rules. A terminally ill patient murders a corrupt politician who
has continued acting with impunity. She records a confession on the Internet to
guarantee her freedom of speech and dignity of her family.

The confession becomes the most viral video in the history of the country. Quickly
afterwards, another politician is assassinated and surprisingly another confession
appears on the Internet. While the police search for a connection between the
crimes, more politicians are murdered and more confessions appear on the web.

The governing class begins to fear, and confines itself within the perimeters of
security. They can no longer live among civil society since any person could be a
threat. It is a revolution led by the terminally ill who cannot be punished criminally
-- individuals who rebel against the system to give a sense of purpose to their
impending natural death.

The assassins are not an organized group; these are copycat crimes and appeal to
moral justice to demand a real democracy and to the end of the privileges given
to the financial and political system. This is the starting point of the fictional plot
about a depressed society who has had enough – a society that converts assassins
into heroes.

WHAT DO WE REFLECT UPON?

Power has always used fear as a social control mechanism. The Revolution of The
Angels is a dramatic thriller that supposes a shift in this power. What would happen
if a town uses fear as a way of controlling its own political and economic leaders?

We find ourselves in the context of perpetuating crisis where years pass and no one
sees the light at the end of the tunnel. On the contrary, each dawn brings new cases
of alleged political corruption, financial scandals and examples that demonstrate
that far too often the judicial system is becoming more and more unreasonable. And
as if this wasn’t enough, the solutions proposed by the governing powers continue
to be in the best interests of the international financial corporations with doubtful

credibility and predict a future without hope: to unwillingly remain subject to the
dictatorship of the markets, loss of rights, and dismantling the general state of
wellbeing.

In short, a crisis that translates into thousands of personal dramas and that, in
the fiction that we propose, ends up pushing certain people to commit murder
while at the same time demanding fundamental ethical changes, social justice and
sustainability. It’s a work of fiction with a plot that poses enormous moral dilemmas
and invites an inevitable exercise in reflection.

HOW DO WE ACHIEVE THIS TOGETHER?

We believe in crowd-sourcing as an innovative approach that permits not only to
achieve the necessary funding needed to bring this project to life, but also so that
the sponsors feel involved, no matter what the level of contribution. And were sure
that what we are proposing will not leave you indifferent.

It won’t because our project is born from the roots of a reality that we are all living,
or suffering, every day. We ask that you help us make this short film and fiction
novel a reality – for which we have initially budgeted at 10,000 euros.

HOW WILL IT BE INVESTED?

• Production, filming, post-production and short film distribution

• Editing, publishing and distribution of the novel

• Website maintenance and management

• To satisfy and reward our sponsors

We have produced various teasers, trailers and video-marketing activities to
introduce our idea to potential sponsors. Verkami will be the only source of
financing in the beginning.

WHO ARE WE?

We are people like you -- with the same concerns, worries and desires. On the
professional side, we are a group of people without political affiliation and with
a wide experience in the world of communication: we are journalists, directors,
producers, musicians, actors, technicians, etc. Some of us, after many years working
in diverse media careers, recently have been unemployed due to the fault of
these famous “budget cuts”. The idea behind “The Revolution of The Angels” was
conceived when we were all still employed. Now that we are unemployed, not only
do we have the ambitious, we have the time to move this project forward. In our
careers we have always followed the news closely and the debates that it sparks. No

one, of sound mind, openly defends violence and we obviously do not either. But
the commentaries in the street are there and we have all asked ourselves at some
point in time if the situation of social tension that we’re living could lead to violent
outbreaks, especially following the recent episodes of political mockery in their own
private homes (the phenomenon known as “ESCRACHE”). Where are the limits?
We collect these concerns and translate them into a work of fiction that invites
reflection.

We are in contact with professionals of different specialties directly linked with
the plot that will help us build, contrast and highlight the truth – police, doctors,
lawyers, historians, etc. All members of the project have provided their selfless
dedication.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF WE OBTAIN MORE FUNDING THAN WHAT WAS
BUDGETED?

We will interpret that the project is liked. It will grow accordingly to the enthusiasm
of the public and it will be the public who decides if more ambitious projects will
occur, such as a movie or TV series depending on the volume of funding.

WHEN DO WE EXPECT TO DELIVER ON WHAT IS FUNDED?

The short film and novel will be ready between three to five months after achieving
our funding objective. Some of the deliverables will be offered during the
production process and development of the short film and editing of the novel. The
sponsors will be able to live “The Revolution of The Angels” starting from the very
first day.
