After a getting a call from a mysterious stranger, a college student must perform dangerous tasks that would allow him to save his mother who has cancer.
So what does he do about it? He needs a goal.
Why do his dreams turn upside down when his mother dies? I have nothing for context but I don’t understand why it would make any difference.
“College student” – As with all of your loglines, give us something more than just “college student” or “young man” or “young couple” etc. Think of it this way: if you had to describe yourself in 2/3 words so that somebody who’s never met you has some understanding about who you really are, what 2/3 words would you use? I can guarantee that, whether you are a college student or not, you would object to simply being called a “college student” and that alone. Aren’t you more than that?
As a follow up to 85’s comment, what type of “tasks” is this college student performing? You should describe the tasks in a word or two – are they menial tasks (such as raking leaves/taking out the garbage/painting for the stranger)? Or are they more dangerous in nature – kill someone, find someone, expose something sinister etc.? I don’t think you mean that the tasks are menial/routine tasks; so you should qualify “tasks”.
Also, needs a touch more refining – but, a good start.
