Okay, I think I have this great idea, tell me what you think. Right now I’m just making some rough notes, outlining everything, etc.
Anyway, here it is:
Barry Esten tries to live a very normal life. He has a normal job, has normal friends, lives in a “normal apartment.” However, he lives a very extraordinary life. Extraordinary things or circumstances always seem to find him no matter what he does or where he goes. People are fascinated by this, he always draws attention, ever since he was a child. The problem is: he resents it. He’s bored by it, it doesn’t excite him anymore. He hates being extraordinary. He hates the fact that people are fascinated by him. All he wants is to be normal. He’s obsessed with conformity and normality, you can say that, that is his "fascination."
Basically, it’s a journy about a bitter man, feed up with life, coming to terms. He can’t hide who he is, comes into his own, and embrasses his uniqueness.
It might be cheesey, or whatever. But I really like this idea.
