Sandra is a young mother still adjusting to the responsibilities of parenthood after a life filled with bad decisions. The most responsible decision she has made is to drive the safest car ever built, the Monolith, to protect her infant son, David, from her own accident-prone nature. During a trek across the desert to visit her husband in LA, they are stopped in the middle of the night by a collision with a deer. Checking on the damage, she accidentally locks herself out of the car, with David trapped inside. Now, isolated from civilization, she must save her son from a car designed to be an indestructible vault on wheels. The sun is rising, heating the car’s interior, and time is running out!
MONOLITH is a visually stunning suspense thriller illustrated by visionary artist and designer LRNZ (Golem, Viewpoint, Astrogamma) and written by ROBERTO RECCHIONI (Orphans, Dylan Dog) and MAURO UZZEO (Orphans, Dylan Dog).
This lushly painted tale began as a graphic novel project before turning quickly into a live-action feature film production, with LRNZ’s visual design direction brought to life. Once principal photography was complete, LRNZ went back to complete the graphic novel as originally envisioned, with highly dynamic visuals that change styles throughout to convey the range of moods, dreams, and psychological trials Sandra experiences during this frightening 48-hour period.
There are moments in the story where Sandra is under the influence of drugs, poison, or her own dreams, each illustrated with a boldly different graphic style: classic comic book line-art becomes a tool to illustrate Sandra’s hallucinatory states.
