The Unsinkable Dan, a film by Lann
Logline: A superhero in a small town, Unsinkable Dan moves to Carter City and changes his hero name to Captain Untouchable, in hopes of making it big when Carter City’s hero—Lord Khan—unexpectedly quits.
Unsinkable Dan is a superhero from a small town in Canada with a naively positive outlook on life. He’s environmentally conscious, but not rich enough to buy a hybrid, or make a solar-powered lair. All his weaponry is creative; he’s trained himself to use what’s around him in order to fight as opposed to any high-tech stuff. He wishes he could be a hero in the big city and finally gets his chance when Lord Khan, the hero of Carter City, USA, suddenly retires due to illness.
Changing his hero name to “Captain Untouchable” (and his costume to blue and green), Dan moves to Carter City. But, as Dan learns, it’s much more difficult to be a hero in a large city where people either don’t give you a second glance, or they start stalking you and become president of your fan club (with a membership of one).
Things start looking up when a supervillain appears in the form of the very mysterious, yellow-and-red-clad Hazmantium.
And then things take a bitterly unexpected turn when Dan unmasks Hazmantium and discovers he is none other than Lord Khan.
Lord Khan has become bitter from all the years of thankless duty as a hero. But when he unexpectedly developed cancer caused by city pollution that gives him only a short time to live, he decides that his last time on Earth would be better spent getting revenge on the city that took his life. He then quit his superhero-ness to become the supervillan “Hazmantium.”
Spirits crushed, Dan must rethink his outlook on life and realize the true meaning of hero, and if he wants to continue being one, or just give up and go back home.
