Here is a draft of my synopsis for Circuit. It's roughly one A4 in length and I think it needs a bit more detail but any critique would be much appreciated.
In the near future, the world is run by pharmaceutical corporations who rule with an iron fist, coming up with new and ever-changing ways of shaping the world to suit their needs. In Britain, LifeSource Industries have manufactured VOCACIUM; an annual injection that influences its recipient to confess any crimes committed.
As a teenager, LAURA BISHOP's father confessed to a murder under the drug's influence and was executed in front of her eyes. When it’s her turn, Bishop discovers that she is immune to the drug and is taken away from her family.
Years later, Bishop is working for a faction of mercenaries called the CIRCUIT, who are trying to bring down LifeSource Industries. While on a mission with her best friend ACE, a hacker who guides her from his computer, Bishop sets off an explosion that inadvertently kills two civilians. Guilt-ridden and desperate to make amends, she accepts a job to steal a priceless flash-drive containing shocking information about Vocacium and herself. Abruptly interrupted by the police, who are hot on her tail, Bishop manages a narrow escape with the help of KNOX, another Circuit member. In the Citadel, the underground headquarters of the Circuit, they discover the flash-drive is heavily encrypted and seek the help of another hacker, who lives in Cardiff. While working on the files, the hacker is brutally murdered. When Bishop and Knox flee the scene, Knox gets shot and Bishop cornered by the police. She hands herself in, allowing Knox to escape and call for backup.
Bishop wakes up in a cold prison cell in front of Detective JONAH NOLAN who has been hunting her for months. The girl murdered by Bishop’s father all those years ago was his childhood love. Since the truth drug won’t work on Bishop, Jonah brings in MARIUS, Bishop’s brother and the new CEO of LifeSource. Marius threatens to kill Bishop if she doesn't give him what he wants - the flash-drive. Outside the building, Knox sets off an explosion and Bishop escapes.
With the files encrypted files now accessible, Bishop and Knox uncover information about Scorpion – a rogue company, once part of LifeSource's science division that uses human subjects in illegal cybernetic experiments. They find evidence that it could have been Scorpion responsible the death of Jonah’s friend and not Bishop’s father. She realises the help she needs is through Jonah and she convinces him to join them and stop Scorpion from killing even more people.
When Jonah and Bishop visit a scientist mentioned on the flash-drive, he ends up dead and Knox mysteriously disappears. Jonah’s own police force turn against him, believing he is now working with a terrorist. They take Bishop and Jonah into custody and deliver them to the Metropolitan Police building. Once again, Marius confronts Bishop. He reveals that he is behind Knox’s disappearance, actually works for Scorpion, and plans to kill her.
During interrogation, Jonah and Ace find an unexpected ally in ROSIE, a colleague of Jonah. She's been working undercover in the police for months and now she's there to bust them out, while being surrounded by the entire Metropolitan Police Force.
Just as Bishop thinks all hope is lost, the power cuts out. Bishop makes a run for the control room and plugs in the flash-drive into the Hub, broadcasting the contents of the flash-drive to the public, causing chaos. In the aftermath, Jonah promises to help Bishop find Knox and do whatever it takes to bring down Scorpion and LifeSource, once and for all.
