Jake Fortune 3D Street Dance In a parallel universe of hyper-reality, where war is a thing of the past and all efforts are put into creativity and technology, sits the dance capital of the world ‘PINEAPPLE VALLEY’. JAKE FORTUNE is an extraordinary dancer with a talent only surpassed by his compassion and humanity. Jake opens a dance studio in remembrance of his deceased mother, teaching the under-privileged, giving them an opportunity to express their talents. Unfortunately, RYAN STRIKE, the son of a billionaire technology expert VIKTOR STRIKE, is hell-bent on making himself the brightest star in the dance galaxy and is focused on his own fame and grandeur as he intends to take over the world of street dance by fair means or foul. Ryan decides that Strike Industries should control all of the dance schools and dancers in the Valley, and defends his actions by asserting that it is for the good of the Valley to insure they stay on top. Secretly utilizing his father’s money, power and influence, Ryan bribes the government to enact a new law, consolidating all dance related businesses under his control, under the banner of STRIKE INDUSTRIES. Forcing the street dancers to work for him, he deprives them of their freedom of expression and their businesses. Jake is amongst them, losing 'GOOD FORTUNE' Studios. With his disciples, Jake flees to the underground in an act of defiance, resisting Ryan’s maniacal grab for power and glory. Jake and his crew train secretly in the shadows, rehearsing and developing their style away from the dogmatic control of Ryan. Little do they know that government forces are watching - waiting for the right moment to pounce. Finally the day arrives and they descend on Jake, imprisoning him under the terms of the corrupt new law. Locked away in the darkness, Jake feels all hope is lost and that Ryan has won. Returning from a long business trip, Viktor Strike is furious when he finds out what Ryan has been doing with his company and to the Valley in his absence. Ryan tries to convince his father that it’s good for business and his crew will be known as ‘TEAM STRIKE’ promoting the company world-wide. Viktor is not convinced. Viktor pays for Jakes’ bail and arranges a meeting at Strike towers between Jake, Ryan and himself. Viktor is poised to launch a spectacular exhibition of his latest simulation technology and sees the aggravated situation between the two dancers as the perfect opportunity to garner the most exposure for his business whilst repairing his families’ reputation. Viktor proposes a live televised dance contest; a face-off between Ryan, Jake and their crews in his own Strike Towers. Each floor in the tower will be fitted with the latest Strike technologies; Ryan and his finest students will be pitted head to head against Jake and his crew. Broadcast to a global audience, the viewing public will decide who is truly the best and the winner will become ‘TEAM STRIKE’ with global fame the next stop.

He falls asleep smiling. Mark awakens on the floor of an empty and degraded room, the muffled sounds of battle can be heard outside. Dressed in half military and half civilian clothing, a confused Mark looks around the room and notices an M16 on the floor next to him. The sounds of battle become clearer and louder and Mark rises to his feet and walks over to the window. Looking out from the upstairs bedroom of a terraced house, Mark witnesses a furious battle in the streets below. A round slams through the window throwing Mark to the floor. Whilst on the floor a siren sounds outside and the fire fight stops. Once again Mark looks out of the window but this time everyone is gone and the dust settles to the ground. Mark picks up the M16 and proceeds to walk out of the house and onto the street. Dazed and confused Mark tries to take in what has just happened as he walks down the street, and then from out of nowhere he is grabbed and pulled into a building. After a short struggle Mark is pinned to the floor by AMANDA, â€œMark! What the fuck are you doing?â€? Shocked by the fact that Amanda knows him, Mark demands an explanation as to what is happening. Amanda tells him that they are all ex military that there are 15 of them, with Amanda being the leader, they are trapped in this town and they cannot escape. They have no idea how long they have been there and they regularly come under attack from
an unknown force. One of the buildings has a green light above it (QM building) and when it illuminates they can go inside to get basic rations and ammunition but that’s as much as they know. If someone gets shot they put them in the QM building and they return patched up a few days later. Mark becomes hell bent on escape and convinces the others to help him. Still coming under regular attack, they put their plan into effect and escape into the main compound. They fight their way through the compound into large buildings that seem to always have the lights on.

They stop meeting resistance and Mark and Amanda make their way down a long corridor with a large control room at the end. The control room is full of monitors and futuristic computer consoles and as they enter they are both scanned. Displayed on the screen in front of them is diagnostics of both their bodies and the words “Battle construct Droids” written beneath. The computer speaks and informs them that they are Cyborgs constructed from dead soldiers. Created to run realistic war games against humanoid drones, the only way to properly test them, would be against human combatants. They ask the computer “Who is running the facility?” and the computer informs them that there has been no human interaction for ten years and the whole place has been running automatically for all that time. Mark and Amanda trash the control room, commandeer a Humvee and head out into the great unknown.
