Storyboard Description

The world is sinking progressively deeper into a mire of immorality. Secrets, lies, and hidden corners of the internet that specialize in satisfying the darkest, most depraved desires of humanity. One boy, 10 year old Solomon Davidson has had enough. He obsessively studies hackers and security systems, in exchange for any fiber of normality in his life, he uncovers the key to unlocking every byte of information, every route, every back door in the vast expanse of the web. He can now access any electronic device that has ever had wifi, broadband, cable, or has, in any way, ever been connected to another device that has been on any network. He uses this power to take over the world, and to force them into complete and utter honesty and submission. The problem is in the age-old proverb- absolute power corrupts absolutely. Shadowhearts: War of Souls is the story of how Solomon loses sight of his convictions, turning the world into his own personal reality show. He abolishes marriage, religion, and organized protest, and reinstates slavery for every part of the world, saying that if you can't avoid being taken, you are at the mercy of the one who takes you. His moral decline isn't even close to hitting bottom when he has the mothers of his children murdered immediately after giving birth, sending his children off to live with strangers without even bothering to name them. All the while, there is someone who is praying for him to see what he has become, and that The Creator have mercy on him. This story covers his rise to power, the decisions he makes that lead him down a long and lonely path of destruction, spiritual devastation, and sickness. It continues with the children, and the secrets, the deceptions, the rescues and condemnation that color their lives. New influences, and a surprise visit from a dying friend turn their lives upside down, pitting family against itself, climaxing in a war that Heaven and Hell can not ignore. This is the first chapter of what I hope will become a very long series of stories.

  • 2043-2045 AD
  • 2046 AD
  • Civil unrest leads citizens of the United States to revolt, overthrowing their government and placing a quiet but brilliant man by the name of Reginald Shiftman in the White House. With him are his son, and vice-president, Richard, his daughter-in-law and chief of education, Susanne, his military adviser, former special ops team member, Daniel Marcelle, and a teenage prodigy known simply as KingSol, head of white house security and intelligence.
  • 2047 AD
  • President Shiftman and his team meet with other World leaders, and mostly everything goes well, until North Korea. The impish KingSol  is asked to make a 30-second video debunking all of the regime's lies. The President is shot by Dictator Dim Fun, resulting in an uprising among the North Koreans. Dim Fun is killed, which leads to another World War. 
  • By the end of the broadcast, cell service had to be shut down due to overwhelming numbers of simultaneous calls. 
  • Do you honestly think he knows everything about everyone? He wouldn't really release  everyone's secrets, right?
  • The first civilian passenger flight is struck down by enemy fighter jets. The war escalates, millions lose their lives. By the end of the year, 12 more civilian aircraft have been shot down, despite all efforts by President Shiftman and other leaders. 
  • By the end of the third day,only 42 of 196 countries remained. Between the nuclear fallout, riots, and scavengers, the planet's population was cut in half in a matter of hours. The countries that refused Solomon's leadership were reduced to memories, words, and pictures. 
  • 1 Month Later
  • King Sol has become completely disgusted in the way the world reacted to the Call to Truth, and decides that the only way to  save the world is to shut it all down. He single-handedly hacks into the Internet's Ultra Server, a hitherto unheard of access point that allows him to instantly discover and change anything on the internet or connected to it. He uses his skill to broadcast a message to every screen worldwide, cutting off all communication but his own. 
  • Ladies and Gentlemen of the world, Distinguished World Leaders. I am Solomon. Please, do not attempt to turn off or adjust your devices. You have been hacked. I now know every secret you thought nobody would ever know. Your transgressions, your secret charities, your children's schools' registries and scores, your pets' vet records, your passwords, prison codes, and even your launch codes. If it has ever been connected to any network of any kind, I can bend it to my will. You have two days to confirm that you are locked out of everything and surrender peacefully to me via social media or live webcast. Fail to adhere to my commands, and I will release all of your dirty secrets for the world to see. Twenty four hours beyond that, and I will destroy everyone with their own nukes. 
  • The civilian sector was divided on how dire the situation was in which they found themselves. The military sector, on the other hand, were pretty unified in their opinion that this kid MUST be taken seriously, but then, they knew for sure that "this kid" was not playing around. He did, in fact, have every access he had claimed, and what's more, he had the backing of an elite team of fellow hackers. 
  • The Scriptures tell us to judge not lest we be judged. I think we should keep this in mind as the days progress in this time of madness. 
  • We at your local Police Department ask that you please remain calm. Help us help you. 
  • Well, as long as our guns are safe, we can still blast this fool into tomorrow. Let 'im let loose all the information he's got. Nobody's  afraid of some little nerd sitting in his mama's basement talking trash on a webcam.
  • The visiting dignitaries were escorted to their rooms by groups of ushers. The facility, for it could be called nothing else, was massive, beautiful, and abounding in rich floral aromas. The ladies were escorted to small cottages on the east of the island, and the gentlemen, to similar accommodations on the western side. 
  • Greetings ladies and gentlemen. My name is Lizelli Allman. It is my pleasure to welcome you, on behalf of Mr. Solomon, and to give you a brief explanation of what it is that we have planned for you here.  Over the next six months, you will be Mr. Solomon's guest at this lavish estate. You will not want for anything, and there will be plenty of time to do the only thing that brought you all here- getting to know one another. You will recieve further details from Mr. Solomon himself during dinner at seven this evening.  You may use the interim however you see fit, but we suggest that you use it to unpack and get settled in.
