Fighting off mutant creatures, and his own inner demons, he is all consumed by his fight for survival.
When he finally contacts Garry Freeman, who is stuck in a space station, they have to learn to work together if they’re going to save themselves, and maybe all of civilization.
Private James Conroy
Private James Conroy is an Special Forces Sniper who has been put on leave because of his poor attitude. Struggling to communicate with Suzi – his ex-girlfriend, he’s dragged back to his unit for an urgent mission to capture a deadly terrorist. After the mission goes horribly wrong James finds himself fighting to survive after an apocalypse of unknown origin.
Living in an abandoned shack at the base of a radio tower in the hills outside Stella One, he spends his days trying to scavenge food and evade the mutant creatures that stalk this new environment.
Beyond the starvation and creatures, he fights the isolation by clinging to fragments of his former life, but time is running out. During his daily patrols through the wilderness he discovers a satellite phone, and manages to charge the battery.
Then everything changes..

Garry is about to give up all hope of ever finding anyone when he hears a strange confession over the radio..

About MK OUTLIER
MK OUTLIER is an Indie Sci-Fi Action film set in the near future outside the fictional city of Stella_One. The film follows in the footsteps of movies like Dog Soldiers, Following, El Mariachi, Monsters and the French New Wave, utilizing a small cast and crew to create a unique and exciting cinema experience. Working every weekend and most weeknights, the film has been coming together for the last few years. We’re very excited that our project will soon be ready for release.
Christopher also realised that no one would buy into the film if the space station wasn’t believable so the set for this was built inside the directors garden shed, at the back of the house he was renting.
This is the story of a man who finds himself abandoned and alone, who has to learn to fight for his own humanity, and re-learn what it is to value others, and ultimately find his way home.
It’s also a musing on how we deal with the chaos that we create, how we try to pull back from the metaphorical cliff’s edge that we now teeter on due to our continual courting of global disasters such as climate change, over population, destruction of wilderness etc.
MK OUTLIER is great example of ‘remix cultre’ being a mash-up of of PC Games, Sci-Fi genre and human melodrama.
