A misfit South African farmer, going through a existential crisis , finds companionship in a French, new age – hippie couple, but it transpires that they belong to a survivalist , narcissistic cult and plan to parasitically abuse the farmers resources to prepare for doomsday at all costs.

I presume that this is a variant, or and extended logline of the other.  One problem with this version is that  the doomsdayers seem to be in the driver’s seat of the story, not the farmer.  If he’s the protagonist then when he’s faced with the threat they pose, what does he do?  What becomes his objective goal?

Thanks for the feedback – If I go with the following version…

‘After going through a divorce, a lonely farmer finds companionship in a new age cult couple, but has to fend for his life when they are revealed to be savage doomsday preppers’

Here, his objective goal moves from companionship to survival.  Do you think the doomsdayers still feel like they are in the driving seat?

I appreciate your input alot. This is based on a true story, but I don’t want the farmer to come across as a passive character.
