"The Proxy" is an action/sci-fi webseries which ran from March 8-17, 2012.
The story starts when YouTube tat reviewer Stuart Ashen attempts to review the contents of a package addressed to his neighbour, Tom Bishop--a USB flash drive. Suddenly, he is interrupted when two men break into his house and attack him, forcing him to go on the run. After running into Tom, and after both are rescued by an amnesiac woman with bizarre powers, who they dub "Sarah", the three go on a quest to find out the story behind the drive and their assailants.
