The Search For Simon

David has spent years traveling the UK and the world, funded by a small but fortuitous lottery win, to visit people who claimed to have been abducted or had a close encounter, he has a website and Face-book group where he asks people to help in his quest, they upload video interviews they have done for him.

He has met and interviewed respected scientists, and members of the public who have ‘come into contact’ with Aliens or even been abducted themselves.

David is convinced he is onto something.

His mother has given up hope that David will ever get a proper job – or heaven forbid – find a girl and settle down, but point blank refuses to talk about the loss of her other son Simon.

Every week David goes to the local pub (to either play war-games or be in a pub quiz). His fellow pub friends are totally bored of his UFO obsession, however Sally, a girl he met at the ‘Failed Suicide club’ really likes him, though David is oblivious to her advances, and being somewhat shy – she isn’t getting very far.

David wont listen to anyone talk about the possibility that Simon just died, or is dead – because listening means he’s wasted his whole life.
