Synopsis
What would you really do if you had the power to stop time? SUSPENSION delves into that very question by combining elements of science-fiction, psychological thriller, and classic Hitchcockian suspense. The story unfolds as Daniel loses his wife and son in a car accident. While slowly recovering from his injuries, he rebuilds his son’s video camera that was damaged in the crash. Infused with power from the moment of the crash, the camera develops the ability to stop time when Daniel presses the pause button. This discovery restores Daniel’s sense of purpose, and he fills the vacuum in his life by taking responsibility for another victim, Sarah, a newlywed who lost her husband in the same accident. But Daniel’s good intentions shift as the power begins to change him irrevocably. At first Daniel only watches her, then tries to improve her life in small ways. But using his power to "help" becomes an addiction, and the vastness of Daniel's power can do only one thing...corrupt him.
