Paul has attempted suicide twice and has been committed to a mental ward, but his best friend, Sam, and others aren’t giving up on him. On Paul’s temporary leave days, they try to keep him off social media and help him get back to real interaction and fun. They organize a LAN party, a D&D party, a fishing trip, and other get-togethers in order to cheer him up. Paul even gets a chance to confront his ex-wife and find a new love, but is all of it enough to bring him back from the darkness?

Local Area Network is inspired by a true story and explores themes about suicide prevention, mental health awareness, human connection, and more. The tone will be that of a straight drama, feeling very real. Yes, it will be sad, but with moments of natural humor and intended catharsis. The story utilizes nostalgia that the Millennial generation in particular can connect with, but that same nostalgia is meant to appeal to all generations. A primary story element is the LAN (Local Area Network) Party, a blast from the past when the internet was not needed to play multiplayer games on the computer. You only needed a few friends, their computers, and some snacks. Everyone can connect with this nostalgia for simpler times when people interacted in person more often. There’s also a clear theme about the youngest generation (who will never know a pre-internet world) needing to disconnect from digital interaction and reconnect with real interaction. All of this feeds into the major theme of human beings reconnecting with each other and caring for one another.

Thank you so much for your interest and support in helping us tell this important tale!
