HUMAN from early 21th Centry Earth RIFTED to Rifts Earth by accident. (our Point-of-View character)

DBee Village, including a number of Races. Elf, Dwarf, Grackletooth. Brodkil Giant with a bionic arm/eye. The village is a place where our Point-Of-View character can learn about the world in real time, with us learning that these Strange Rifts open up and suck people from various worlds and dimensions randomly. That the world have Magic, Psionics, and Technology can be seen here. POV Character witnesses Magic being cast, get himself heal by a Psychic (minor injury of course), and sees actual Cybernetics/bionics on various villagers for injuries magic or psionics could not heal fully.

From there the POV can encounter the CS as a friendly force to him or as an enemy out to kill all DBees even the POV character as the Dogboys sense his "wrongness". meaning he is a DBees Human from the rifts, even he is an alien to be feared by the CS mentality.

At this point the POV character could go several ways. He might be injuried and forced to get Bionics. He might manifest Psychic Powers of some kind (Mind Melter or Burster). He might find a place to learn Magic (Ley Line Walker or Mystic). He could use his Early 21 knowledge or skills to become a doctor, Operator, Scholar, whatever he did in early 21st centry life on Rifts Earth now, or if young enough become a Merc Soldier, Cyber-Knight, Robot Pilot, etc..
Who Knows...

Last Act of movie could showing the POV making a stand for themselves, the Village which helped him or trying to stop a invasion of Demons from a Rift...

I'd make the POV character a simple City Rat or Vagabond and I'd start things off in Chi-Town. Have the guy leave the comfort of the Coalition States and allow him to experience the Megaverse with the audience. He'd naturally gravitate towards a party with all the classic OCCs & RCCs (a Linewalker is a must, so's a Psystalker and a Juicer or Crazy, definitely need a Borg or a Cyber Knight, too....) and together, they'd traverse Rifts Earth and beyond.

If wishes were horses, we'd all be eatin' steak.

Comment: Full of Love and C-4, give me a hug.
I would do the coalition officer pov.

Start it off with coalition kinda like the military in starship troopers, then a hour in the coalition starts showing their colors, building up to where the main character, is in a d-bee village that is peaceful , and it's to a head where his shot the father of a family, and as a flash he sees himself in the father's place, then comes the mother's turn a couple flashes of the officer's wife , and finally comes the kids , this time the d-bees switch to his kids and the d-bees kids, then he pulls the trigger, the first part end with him walking out into the village, seeing the coalition in their glory. Then the camera goes to a close up on the officer's face , then off to intermission.

Then the movie picks back up some time later, dealing with officer and the coalition's true nature, and a choice to make,

Comment: Never underestimate a player who likes options.
I've been thinking about this one for a bit...

Follow a City Rat, guy in his late teens, and get a good look at Chi-Town from the bottom on up: Deadboy patrols, propaganda, the haves and have-nots, and the scary similarity between future Chi-Town and many people currently living in poverty. The kid makes a huge mistake and gets hunted by a Dog Pack, flees Chi-Town, hooks up with a merc unit, and travels North America with them, from Tolkeen to New West and back to Lonestar, becoming his OCC of Headhunter. Along the way, he learns a whole lot about how others live, and die, outside the confines of Chi-Town, as well as how the Coalition really is from an outsider's view. The guy runs across vampires, psi-stalkers, mages, techno-wizards, and D-Bees of all types during his travels, finally coming full circle when he has to fight with his unit against Coalition forces in the war against Tolkeen.

Where it goes from there...? Who knows?

Rogue Scholar, speaking over the grave of a black marketeer: "In the Great House and in the House of Fire, on that Great Day when all the days and years are numbered, oh let my name be given back to me."
Juicer, having killed said black marketeer: Oh %@$# this! His name is Dirtnap! Can we go now?!
