Truly alone with his own thoughts for the first time in his life, an adrift astronaut confronts the demons left over from a tumultuous childhood.

It might be easier to start with a longer logline in order to accomplish the first objective of stating the story. Convey a mental picture of what happens most of the time. Where is the astronaut? Does the story take place in the past via flashbacks or in some alternate reality or alien planet? What's his intention? Who or what is the antag in a physical sense, not the vague demons. What are the stakes if he fails?

This logline is reminiscent of recent movies such as the Martian and Gravity. This is B story, I think, similar to Sandra Bullocks flashbacks in the Gravity.

What's the A story, why is he adrift? what happened? what's his goal?
