When an aquaphobic janitor discovers he has the ability to control water, he must overcome his fear to save his fiance from a fire manipulating madman
So much seems to be happening in the logline I’m not sure what the story is. How does he control water? Was he gifted and if so, why?. He’s acquaphobic (hydrophobic?). How does his water ability/fear have any relation with one who controls fire? Mentioning that your protag. is a janitor bears what on the story. Maybe re-work to read something like, “A man with the ability to control water must overcome his fear of heat to save his love from one with the talent for manipulating fire”.
Hydrophobia (Rabies) – especially a set of symptoms of the later stages of an infection, in which the victim has difficulty swallowing, shows panic when presented with liquids to drink, and cannot quench their thirst.
