Skeleton Key is a sci-fi noir style film about a citizen's struggle to break free of his dystopian society. The city is a prison for its inhabitants, long ago thrown into darkness from the apparent disappearance of the sun; it is now lit artificially by a central tower. It follows the main character, a hit man by the name of John Doe, as he is commanded to carry out a task, one he has done countless times before per his “arrangements” with the authority. A way to escape, to leave all obligations behind and end his contract, presents itself to John, but I could also be a way for him to redeem the things he’s done.
Skeleton Key started pre-production August 2013 and was completed the following year April 2014. Meredith plans to continue developing the concept of this film for a future project.
