Here is an alternative logline:
When a gritty maintenance man searches for the key that will free him from the secret AI lab he is trapped in, he discovers two other survivors, bitter rivals, who hold the key to his escape, deadly secrets and the future of humanity. He must decide which one to trust.
Story: On doomsday, a maintenance man, Kyle, is lucky enough to be at work at the bomb proof AI lab where he works as an electrician. 1.5 years later he discovers other people living in the lab, but he can only communicate with them by audio. One of them is, Dr. Emery, the lead programmer for the AI department and the other is a “woman” named MEG. (later it turns out that Meg is the AI that the programmer made) MEG is actually the cause of WWIII, but it has grown to regret it’s decision to wipe out humanity and has made another baby AI, HOPE, to take it’s place. HOPE is not prejudiced by all of the black vs. white war games Meg had to endure. MEG’s intention is to help humanity rebuild. Dr. Emery wants to destroy the Meg. Meg and Dr. Emery both try to manipulate Kyle to their ends. He must make a decision which one he will help. BTW his internal arc is that he could not save his daughter in the blast and views himself as a failure as a parent and avoids all responsibility.
Any feedback greatly appreciated. Thanks!
