The H.T. is a story about overcoming odds no matter how people assume your disposition do be and that everyone has an equal chance to be extraordinary in the face of any situation.
Mikey Wright, a young autistic adult, finds himself in a tense hostage situation in which the police believe he is their main suspect. While the real hostage taker, Ivan, controls Mikey's every move with the crisis negotiator, Sean; Mikey must find a way to save himself and his friend held hostage, AJ, before the police take him out.
Mikey: Mid/Late 20s Autistic man who has a somewhat sweet disposition but is caught up in the middle of the crisis and must find a way to let the police know he is innocent without tipping off Ivan, who holds him and AJ hostage.
Sean: late 30s to middle aged crisis negotiator who is on the phone with Mikey from incident command. Sean is calm and collected and trying to resolve the situation peacefully.
AJ: Mid/Late 20s social services worker who has been Mikey's case manager. Mikey has built up an affection to her but because of policy, she has distanced herself from him a bit.
Ivan: 30s unstable, manipulative with violent tendencies. He has gone unnoticed by the police. He holds Mikey and AJ at gunpoint.
Noonan: 30s/40s. Commands the two entry teams and high ground, outside of the barricaded office. Has a more aggressive approach than Sean's peaceful resolution.
