Synopsis: Struggling author, Claire Rivers signs up for a fully A.I. operated retreat to help her writer’s block, but
when an unforeseen software glitch occurs, she gets trapped inside her unit with a malfunctioning
android, a degenerating host and no communication with the outside world. As time is running out, food
supplies getting desperately low and the android becoming increasingly unstable, Claire must overcome
her fears and find a way to outsmart the technology in order to make it out of the retreat alive.

Director's Statement

Set in the near future, ‘Blank’ is a highly engaging feature film, beautifully blending tension
and drama as we move between a successful writer’s buried past and her current situation to
tell her story. It draws upon interesting themes, including mental health issues that interweave
seamlessly. ‘Blank’ also explores the fears surrounding developing technology, such as the
integration of Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) into our world, and our reliance upon them as we
become more hooked into the digital world.
