Submitted by Guest (not verified) on Wed, 08/08/2018 - 19:29

Jax, a former superhero who retired from the business after the traumas she’s faced, is sought after by Detective Bana, who needs her help to find a little girl’s captor. With Jax’s ability to take people’s memory, she begrudgingly takes the girl’s experiences of being kidnapped and violated and makes them her own to save the girl from having to remember any of it and to find the person who did this to her. Even though her mission is only to find the criminal, the memories she’s now embodied makes her connection to the case much more personal and she’s developed a personal vendetta to hunt down the man who did this and sentence him to a more personal punishment

CAST

JACQUELING/JAX (LEAD) 20-13

Jax (26) is a troubled girl with an astounding ability. As a modern-day superhero, she can take away memories, making them her own. She is selfless through and through, and she proves it when taking away Natalie’s traumatic kidnapping. She is smart and rude, pushing away everyone who tries to reach out.

DETECTIVE ARKO BANA 30+

Detective Bana is a passionate workaholic. He is empathetic towards his cases and goes out of his way to bring justice to the innocent. He has an admiration for Jax and her abilities but because of a case that went too far, he is no longer on good terms with her.

NATALIE GIBSON (28-23)

Natalie is kind and innocent, a tragedy of circumstance. She was kidnapped and now lays unresponsive at a hospital with clear signs of brutality. When Jax steals her traumatic memories of the event, she is given a second chance at happiness.

DOCTOR HERST 30+

Doctor Herst is a calm and collected character on the outside. On the inside, he is a pure psychopath with sadistic tendencies. He is responsible for the kidnapping of Natalie and is hunted down by the furious Jax.
These people are the memories that Jax has stolen. Each of them represents a weight on her shoulders and another person she helped. They are the big reveal as to what Jax has really been through.
