The Pridelands are a small slice of heaven, ruled by Mufasa, the Lion King. His son Simba is preoccupied with life and all its potential, and neglects the lessons Mufasa tries to impart. Scar, Mufasa's brother has lived his adult in the shadow of his better looking, more successful, universally adored sibling. Capitalizing upon Simba's youthful exuberance and reckless abandon, Scar manipulates his nephew into playing the key role in his ascension to power, and believing himself guilty of Mufasa's death. Simba flees from his home and family in shame and disgrace, never to return. Years of abuse and neglect under King Scar begin, and the Pridelands are devastated, and lionesses are hunting far outside their boundaries. One such is Nala, who discovers the exiled Simba, who must face the ghosts and demons of his past to save the ones he loves

"I was just thinking what an interesting concept it is to eliminate the writer from the artistic process. If we could just get rid of these actors and directors, maybe we've got something here."--Griffin Mill.

When he finally takes action, his cool aplomb deserts him, things go seriously sideways, and Griffin's world begins falling apart
