The upcoming independent film Please Stand By follows Wendy (Dakota Fanning), a young autistic Star Trek fan who will do whatever it takes to submit her 427-page Star Trek script to a writing competition in Hollywood.
In this exclusive clip, Wendy meets a friendly woman on a bus to Los Angeles (Marla Gibbs) and describes her Star Trek script, in which Mr. Spock derives a mathematical equation for a sense of humor.
In Please Stand By, Wendy connects to the world by watching Star Trek and puts her passion into a script in which Mr. Spock goes to Deep Space Nine. The guiding spirit of Mr. Spock gives Wendy the courage to make a pilgrimage to Paramount Studios Los Angeles to submit her script to the pros. The film is written by Michael Golamco and is based on his one-act play.
Please Stand By will be released January 26 in theaters and on demand via Amazon Video and iTunes. For more info or to buy tickets, visit pleasestandbyfilm.com.
