CONUNDRUM SYNOPSIS

Written and directed Paul Anthony Morris 

After emerging from a near death experience Fidel embarks upon a life review to try to make some sense of his life. But despite possessing an exceptional IQ we discover that Fidel has spent most of his life drifting between careers and enduring long periods of silence. It is during one of his self imposed silences that Fidel identifies where his greatest battle for self worth, acceptance and happiness lies. Lured initially into critiquing society Fidel soon discovers, distastefully, that he has also been complicit in engineering his own demise. Perplexed by this conundrum Fidel takes us on an epic journey of self discovery which reflects  our own personal struggles and conflicts. However, Fidel’s preferred resolution for overcoming his anonymity is part of an alarming twist which either makes us the agents of his  renaissance or accomplices of his ultimate decline.
