ORION by Shane Cowden
After returning from war, Jason, also known as Orion, is tormented by severe symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. No longer able to deal with the stressors of society, he flees to a cabin in the isolated backwoods of Alaska, hoping to find peace in seclusion.
During this isolation, Jason’s symptoms worsen, and the manifestation of his darkest demons will surface to confront him about the past, striving to ultimately break what is left of his spirit and end his life. To continue living, Jason must overcome his guilt, woodland predators and terrifying creatures conjugated from his trauma and negative inner voice.
To do this, he must follow the lessons from a mystical Native American warrior named Charging Bear, who attempts to teach him the mental and spiritual tactics of fighting his inner demons.
In this modern spin on the Greek mythological tale of the same name, Orion will be confronted by the deadliest threat he has ever faced. Scorpio, his negative inner voice.
For Jason to have a future. He must confront the past… and himself.
