He barely doesn’t have any job and is financially feeble and without any job; lost his job as a stuntman in the local movies where he did this. His passion becomes his glum incident. But still, he doesn’t want to give up and is working hard to find the way to support his family and the education for his little toddlers. He is incapable to do anything as he is on the wheelchair and paralyzed from one side of his body and he doesn’t have enough money to support himself. Doctors are sure that they can assist Simon to heal his legs, but the factor of money on this treatment is unable for Simon to pay for his legs and his paralyzed body.

He even doesn’t have the other option to support his family but he is endeavouring his best to resolve this matter as soon as possible. After a long time to spend in his home, he decides to do something that supports his family and in between this long gap, he supports his family based on bank’s money which he saved before the accident occurred. Now there is no option left for him and he decides to write ’scripts’ on ’stunts’ in the movies. He knows what if doesn’t do what he did before but his mind still working. His approach to other companies in his city allows him to participate in the competition that will be held after 4 months but within this time period, he has to do something that supports his family.
He starts to work hard and endeavor his best to write something different that will make the judges astonish. Initially, he castigates by everyone in his society and they taunt Simon for his silly behavior as Simon’s age matter and in the society the father of the two children in his home and lost his job and his family is under financial crisis. Some of his neighbours castigate him for his behavior as he is preparing for the ’stunts’ scriptwriter. He knows this is a challenge for him to achieve this task, but he decided to make it even hurdles will stop his way but he will never look back. Working day and night, hours and hours to write the script and endeavor to write something different in the stunt actions. He writes something different that was and is unrepresented by someone in the action films as he knows better if he had to begin his journey as a ‘scriptwriter for the stunt man’; for him, he also knows this task is something different as this is being directed by the director but at the same time, he knows doing a different thing sometimes alter the old ideas. His different ideas need someone who will help him to make his dream into reality and one day he meets someone as he doesn’t know who he is.
After a few days, someone knocks the door. His wife ’Andy’ opens the door and finds a man with some pages in his hands, glasses on her eyes, a smiling face stands outside the door. She asks, “How can I help you?”
“My name is Andrew and I am a professional movie stunt writer and I want to meet Simon; is he living here?”
“Yes, come in” replies Andy
Andrew steps in Simon’s house, maybe a good sign for Simon.
“Hello, Simon. I am Andrew and am a movie stunt writer.I know about you and your life and how you are tussling to support your family. But I am here for your assistance as someone gave me your address and told me about your current condition and what you are facing in your life. I know it’s hard to accept the truth but we have to accept. Well, I have a proposal for you and work for you. Will you work with me?” asks Andrew
Simon ponders and then, “Yes, but I don’t know you and you even don’t know me completely then why would you help me as you know I am not a laudable person now?”
“I still believe you can do something for your family and for your career and you have many choices depends on you how you mould your life and career,” said Andrew
“I know, but my current situation doesn’t allow me to work but still I am endeavoring my best to write‘script of stunts that will be obliging in movies and also I decided to take part in the upcoming competition” said Simon
“I will here give you the chance in my next short film where there is a lot of action in it, and you will write for my upcoming movie. I know you are thinking I am not a renowned stunt writer or director but our small steps will make us dream bigger” said Andrew
“How can we work together as you know my condition?” said Simon
“Everything is possible. You just need to say, yes for this,” said Andrew. Don’t worry, saw you last movies stunts; it’s incredible and as you know everyone praised you but after that incident stunt man’s life is very tough to live even some forget their sacrifices in movies as these gratifies are not contempt than the life of courageous soldiers. You were and are the marvelous stunt man I ever see and also the others see but after that incident, you need to stand strong to fight against your life and find a way to your future’s life,” said Simon. What do you think now? Asks Simon
He cogitates and then replies, “I will work for you and we will work together instead I am searching for another job in stunt writing”
“That’s great. Well, I am researching for a new type of stunt actions; different than old one and subtly it is explicit and not vaguely represented by me” said Andrew. We will work together and I am sure, your problems will sort out. I am there for you, Simon and I am sure I will assist you and your career will grow.
After listening to Andrew’s suggestion, He agrees on this project and wants to work together with Andrew. My project is explicit, and I am working on that movie that helps us both and especially you, Simon. This project will give you new ideas and plans to find a way to become a ’good stunt director.’ I know it’s a hard time but you have to move ahead in life and that’s the way, life teaches us.
After this proposal, Simon is working hard day and night and writes the best script for actions even he is researching on something different that never happened in action movies. Working hard day and night; he finds something different and put it in his writings and a week, he calls Andrew for assistance as Andrew helps him financially as well as technically also. He shares his creative ideas to Andrew and everything that he writes in his writing for action scenes; it’s going to be a long book by him on action scenes, and Andrew is delighted to see his progress and a quantum leap day by day.
One day, Andrew calls Simon to come with him to the office of the ’Action Director Managing Team’ where they are making the action scenes for the movies and Simon accepts his invitation.Andrew visits his home and then discuss his project and then they move forward to ’Action Director Managing Team’ in city ‘Deas’ Simon’s family doesn’t know Andrew and his background but their trust on him is like an elixir that saves the lives of conscious beings and might, this will assist them to save from their dilemma financial condition after Simon submit his project even Simon forgets about the competition. They meet outside their houses.
“Hey! Simon, how are you?” asks Andrew
“I am fine, thank you, Andrew, and what about you?” asks Simon
“I am fine, thank you” replies Andrew. Let’s go.
They pick the cab and then rush to the ’Action Director Managing Team’
“After reaching there, before entering their office, Andrew clarifies to Simon to conceal his project until he asks him to show to them”
Simon asks Andrew, “Why I shut my mouth?”
“Because they may steal your ideas and first, I just want to confirm that, is this a right company for us or not” replies Andrew
“But I want to say something apropos to action team,”said Simon
“Simon, I have to go they are calling me as the call is inside from the office. Andrew is being called by the head of the office and he rushes to the office to share his ideas with them” After entering the office, Andrew pointing eyes to Simon and solace him on his turn. Simon finds Andrew in a hurry and doesn’t find it appropriate to say anything to him.
After one hour, Andrew comes out from the cabin of the CEO and then rushes to Simon with a grinning face. Hey! They like my idea and they will select my idea to other but renowned company and perhaps, I will get a chance.
“Oh! Congratulations, Andrew. Best wishes for your future. Voice comes from inside and now its turn of Simon”
“As Simon enters inside the cabin, he finds his old classmate studied with him in college. Somewhere he blushed there.
“Simon, are you there?”asks Houson
“In a husky voice, Simon replies, “Yes”
“Come, Simon, most welcome. After, a long time, I see you.Come sit there, hey! What is happening to you, your legs, I mean, they were not always like this” said Houson “Well, in an incident while did my last action scene, I lost my legs, not completely but doctors told me that they can cure my legs with an operation but a large amount of money I have to pay and I don’t have enough money, so why” replies Simon “Oh!Sorry. I hope and wish your legs will be the cure in future” said Houson. Well, are you ready for the interview?Asks Houson
“Yes, I am ready” replies Simon After one hour, the interview ends and Houson sees his project work and stares at him and asks, “Simon, your work is different but something similar like the person whom I interviewed an hour ago. What’s the matter?Well, I am not castigating you but asking you; are you with him or collaborate on your work with him?” asks Houson “Yes, you are right, he is with me and I met him in my home as he wants to join me and need assistance to collaborate with him so why I joined him” replies Simon “I appreciate your work but I think there is something ‘wrong’ init” said Houson “Wrong?” said Simon

Chapter – II
“Yes, I think your buddy plagiarised your original work and dodged me by adding additional action scene,” said Houson “I guess this is not right. He is honest and when he came to me, he told me about his project and his vision to the future action scenes; we will collaborate” said Simon
“Perhaps, I am wrong but be careful as you don’t him for a long time, am I right?” said Houson “Yes, you are right. I didn’t know him explicitly” said Simon
“As I am your friend, I told you and sync you are fortunate that I told you about that person. You have to ask him about the project” said Houson. Listen: perhaps, he is dodging you by owning your work as his original work. So, either you need to alter your story or need to talk to him. I guess he is waiting outside, goes and ask him about the project. Then I will decide whom to choose”
He comes out from the cabin and then finds Andrew missing. For a little moment, he upsets and his heart beats fast but sync he looks back and finds Andrew coming to him. “Hey! How’s your interview? Asks Andrew
“Good” replies Simon. Tell me the one thing; did you copy my project? Asks Simon
“What? No” replies Andrew
“But my work is the same as yours and I guess you are hiding something from me? Said Simon
“Yes, hey, Simon I am in a hurry I will tell you tomorrow what happened to me. Have a great day ahead. Take care. After saying these words, he leaves the office.
Simon stares to Andrew and feels, embarrass and ponders, is this right way to talk to him?
After reaching his home with the upset face, Simon’s wife, “What happened everything fine? What about your interview and where is Andrew?
“I lost” with a sad and husky voice, Simon replies “He dodged me and plagiarised my work and claimed his own” Simon let downs “But what he did?” asks Simon’s wife
“He copied my work and claimed his work. I am here not only for pursuing my passion but to stable my financial condition and also want to support my family. I don’t let my children out of their schools. I have to do something now and uncertainly, fall on the floor; with hapless hopes and there is nothing visible him in the futrue as he finds himself in gloom and ponders what to do now”
His wife supports him to take him back to his wheelchair and requests him to stay on his wheelchair and says, “I will do work from home as I also know to teach the online classes. I will teach students online and also endeavour my best to take care of you and my children that’s the possible solution to overcome this problem”
She consoles Simon and tells him not to worry about the future; she will always with him. He is hapless to say anything; sync staring to his wife and thanks to her.
That night, Simon is thinking about Andrew and his behaviour; never expect such kind of behaviour. Contemplating how to stabilize his family and what about his children even if his wife will work online? Whole-body tire out closes his eyes and take a nap to forget the material chaos.
Next morning with hopes and shimmering thoughts, he plans to move ahead in life.
Wake up and do his chores. Take a paper and then try to write down again. This time he doesn’t want anyone to intervene in his work. Work hard, day and night, his work becomes his strength and on the other hand, his wife is working hard and teaching his online classes”
His is working on his next project and now he is aware of another stunt scriptwriter. But on the other hand, he is facing financial problems as his children were unable to go to the schools because of their fees and they have to pay the four-months fee. He is in trouble as he is thinking how to find the solution for this problem and at the same time; his savings are not enough to support his family but he prefers not to tell his wife. His project is based on a new kind of technology where this will assist the director of the movie to safely do action scenes instead of making the life of a person in danger. He puts his effort to do the stunts easy in his project that will make the action more realistic.
One day, his wife compels him to write his stunt advice on the internet and then post them on social media where he gives some tips on how to do the stunt actions safely. After agreeing with his wife’s suggestions and post his valuable information on the internet. This is the days of spring which he likes most and one of the film director’s assistant see his post online and comments him to work with him. He comments on his post and asks him to contact for his project if he is writing. Receiving the comments, Simon replies to his comments, “I am currently busy with my project and I am tussling with my financial condition; I will endeavor my best to work with you. However, I am working for other stuntmen so that I will guide them on how to become a professional stuntman despite I am trying to write some techniques for them”
Simon’s words draw the attention of the film director’s assistant, and he calls Simon the next day. He offers Simon to work on his next film as Simon doesn’t know who he is; he just read his comments and left without seeing his profile. He calls him in his office where he will discuss his project with this film director. First, Simon doesn’t want to trust anyone but the aftermath is astonishing when his wife said that that man was the assistant of the film director and the director name is ’Katoch’; a brilliant director of the cinema. When he sees this; he feels cosy and is eager to meet with him.
The next morning, he rushes to the office name ’Katoch Creative Studios’ as he enters the office, he saw a long queue where a large number of people accumulate there for their interviews. He, on the wheelchair, is moving ahead and looking at the queue as he is an honest person, stands in the queue. The assistant of the Katoch sees him in the queue and asks him, “You are Simon, right”
“Yes, I am Simon” he replies “Come with me. You don’t need to stand in the queue” said the assistant
“May I come in Sir?” asks the assistant
“Yes, come in” replies Katoch “Come in Simon. My assistant told me about your work, and I saw your posts; very impressive. I need a stunt writer like you, amazing posts and your work is. The outside queue manifests how to stunt writers are eager to write for this movie. I call you and yes, I will select only one person from this queue that will assist you and you both will write for my upcoming movie. Hope, you like my idea,” said Katoch “Yes, I like your idea. Appreciating” said Simon
Simon waits in the cabin of the Katoch and all interviewers take their interviews but the last interviewer is ‘Andrew’ and when he enters in the cabin and Simon stuns to see him. Sit on the chair and taking his interview; Andrew didn’t see him. After taking his interview, he Katoch was happy to see his work and select him for his film. Little glance on Simon and his face turns red as he doesn’t know what to do now. Despite knowing about Andrew’s reality as Houson told to Katoch on-call early before this interview as they are close friends; he selects Andrew for his work as he knows this is not his original work. Simon is not happy but what he does; he knows he has to compromise with this situation and with Andrew also.
After the releasing of the film, Andrew and Simon both are happy as they both worked on this film. Sometimes, they didn’t want to work together as they didn’t like collaboration but Katoch’s order made them work together. The movie is the super-duper hit and everyone even critics acclaim on this movie as this is one of the best movies ever. Some stunt scenes are incredible and are being praised by everyone. But in the casting and crew, there is only the name of Simon, not the name of Andrew. Andrew feels sad and asks Katoch, “Why his name has not mentioned in the film?”
Katoch replies, “Because of your dishonesty. You dodge Simon for his work and claimed that is your work. Even I didn’t want to give you the chance to write for my movie, but I want to punish you for your deeds. So, why I selected you”
Andrew apologizes for his mistake and even said to Simon, “I apologize and I will never dodge anyone. Sorry for my mistake”
Simon forgives him and said, “No matters who work is in the film but one has to remember, never to dodge someone and filch the work. Work hard, hurdles will try to stop you but never give up in life and that makes you strong and creative without dependent on others” Now his life seems to be good and his financial condition is becoming good day by day and after 5 years he opens his stunt writing skill academy where he trained the beginners and the others those sacrifice their physical health especially in stunt action and his career rise and he becomes the muse for everyone.
