Part 1: "Manifest Destiny." International student Andrew Marcus' world is torn asunder when interstellar forces, the "Kibrani," invade earth. With all hope seemingly lost, humanity's last chance may be a long-despised and forgotten race: the Jinn (otherwise known as "genies")! But are they our hope... or greatest fear? Combining the best of summer blockbuster fare and quest myths like Lord of the Rings, Jinnrise is a modern re-introduction to global myth.
