The Legacy

The planet will only continue to host our species as long as we remain respectful guests. The Legacy is a suspenseful thriller with a glimpse into the world of the paranormal. Ellen was born to suffer and watch those around her succumb to their misfortune. With the deaths of both of her natural parents, Ellen experiences more sadness, loss and tragedy than most people would endure during several lifetimes. Clayton, the hero of The Legacy, loses his father in a mysterious accident before he is old enough to remember him. The questions that surround the family tragedy follow Clayton, and his vivid dreams of others begin to move him closer to who he was always meant to be -even without his knowledge. Johanna is a shut-in destined to endure a cycle of addiction and depression as she attempts to remember her life before her abduction. Shedding her former life, and being lost without ever claiming another, Johanna is forced outside of her zone of tolerated discomfort and directly into the middle of an ancient force of nature. In The Legacy, Ellen, Clayton and Johanna are related to one another in the most unique way, the way of saving the human race from itself.
