"April, the V180's science experiment backfired. You must leave now and find an antidote."
"No! I cannot leave you."
In 2052, April, a 15 year old girl lives with her mother Samantha. They settle in the vast city of Auratopia, sheltering in an underground bunker hiding away from the V180 science program because of previous lethal experiments.
Frame 4: Step #4/5 Crossing Threshold
"Hello, my name is Serena, the boy next to me is Tony, and the other one is Luke."
"I have super speed, Tony has x-ray vision, and Luke has Telepathy. Luke informed me you were looking for an antidote, we can assist you to the Kingdom of Orandalle to find the fountain or healing."
One day, Phil the CEO of V180 conducted an experiment to discover a medication that would relieve a bionic mutation. Phil handed the serum to a man named Tobias Will. Soon after Tobias guzzled down the concoction, he became extremely ill. The once seemingly normal medication became a lethal virus causing many to become sick.
Frame 5: Conflict 1
"This maze will only set us back!"
Meanwhile, in the bunker, Samantha (April's mom) informs April about the V180's experiment. Samantha pleads April to leave, however, April resists, for she is too afraid to go off on her own.
Frame 6: Dramatic Irony
"Someone escaped? I demand you to find her and kill her before she spreads word!"
"Sir, there is a dilemma, a girl escaped."
Reluctantly, April absconds off into the danger of the outside world. Azure pools of sorrow dribble off her oblong face, while gloom and dismal engulf her. Soon after, April collapses due to a cramp in her leg. She awakes to three unfamiliar faces. They greet themselves as Serena, Tony, and Luke and offer April to take her to Orandalle to find an antidote.
"Who are you?"
As the four venture off, they stumble across a maze. April timidly follows flashing green orbs which lead her to an ominous pathway in the maze. All of a sudden, the maze crumbles in on the four. Shortly after, Serena swiftly snatches April, Tony, and Luke and escorts them out of the maze.
Back in the chaotic city of Auratopia, one of the workers from the V180 alert Phil that a girl has escaped. Out of anger, Phil demands the worker to find her before she spreads the word about the testing.
