Tóm tắt cuộc thi
Anglo African family business adventure developing into high drama in Europe.
Rags to riches type of love and business drama interspersed with a storyline featuring business, love, poetic prose, adventures, cloaks and dagger, spying missions and sprinkles of comedy in-between.
The main protagonist is an Asian male born in Africa, educated in the UK with heritage in south Asia. `Therefore the element of hardship, suffering, sacrifice is a normal feature just as is hard work, determination, entrepreneurial spirit in doing challenging business with high stakes risk-taking.
He also enjoys the Arts, Music, fine dining and luxury living and is a man of high morals and strong character. He has a piercing gaze, strong room presence and converses intellectually but with simple and straight forward phrases.
An enigma outwardly to most yet a great loyal friend to a select few. He is now searching the next new big successful business venture and reclaiming his family name and status lost after his fathers business ideas were hijacked by a greedy rival. This had lead to family divisions and eventual break-up, acrimony and distances between relationships.
Your creative ideas of what business and how he eventually succeeds in re-establishing himself if the main crux of the story. His main driving point is proving to himself first and foremost. Secondly to bring the family members back into the fold and lastly to expose and let everyone know how the greedy, money-minded, unscrupulous rival and former friend suppressed and had destroyed not only a business and decent friend but also his family.
This is not a revenge plot but a "rising from the ashes" story with the characters main driving point being his self-confidence and never say die attitude in succeeding in creating wealth from nothing and afterwards regaining his family unit and status.
Utilising his strong instincts and judgements, the character is able to filter through the mass media propaganda, artificial social media hype and hypocrisies from weak individuals to get to the bottoms of where the opportunities lie and where people fear to go and take chances.
I would welcome different ideas and suggestions to give the character a modern take but still maintain an ethnic feel.
