Diary of My Dreams
Original Screenplay
by
WARDAN M. TIPLE

Log Line:
In dreams, there is neither truth nor untruth.
Premise:
How will you get rid of your past? MOHAN tries to overcome his
past, his memories which are troubling him through dreams.

Synopsis:
MOHAN [M-30] is a writer. He writes fiction. His stories are
primarily inspired from his own life experiences. He derives his
imagination from his earlier memories and his dreams. He writes
stories to get rid of his past. He keeps a diary where he notes
down his dreams. Some of his dreams are repetitive but when he
starts analyzing it to find out what it means then he gets puzzled
and couldnt distinguish between his dreams and reality; which in
turn explores his personality and reveals more dark secrets about
him.

TREATMENT:
MOHAN travels through his dreams in different zones of his
memories. He observes a death of an unidentified person and a
rebirth of a soul. He writes about it in his diary specifically
mentioned as Diary of My Dreams as THE BOON.
He finds himself as a child eating bitter gourd which he never
liked. It merges with another dream where a virgin asks him for an
abandoned task that he couldnt accomplish. He writes about it as
THE CURSE.
He sees the virgin and himself meeting in the modern times because
of unavoidable circumstances but she couldnt recognize him and
rejects his proposal fulfilling the past legacy. He observes that
as THE RULE.
He sees overshadows of his present life that gets mixed with his
dream there he have a conversation with the Almighty. HE turns to
be an observer of his fate which is already decided and he writes
it in his diary as THE LAW.

DIRECTORS NOTE:
This film explores the inner psyche of a writer who faces a
writers block. Here I am experimenting with the narrative
structure of the Story and exploring the Characters psychology
through his dreams. This film is Experimental; for more rigorous
impact cinematic elements, sound design and editing techniques will
be used.
Overall, its an ambitious project to show up inner creativity of
all the talents that will be used in this film. It will be a visual
treat for audience eyes and food for thought to the intellectuals.
The product is aimed for International Film Festival Festivals!
