He takes a job as bodyguard for Sing Lee, a polarizing and eccentric Chinese entrepreneur who shares tales of supernatural treasures hidden beneath Death Valley. Escaping an ambush by a racist cowboy mob, John kills the sheriff during an all-night gun battle, before they steal a train and skip town.

The two co-dependent outsiders are joined by Michael Murphy, an Irish ex-NYC cop, Lita and Erin, a pair of exotic prostitutes in love, Lisa Jefferson, the slain sheriff's fifteen-year-old daughter, and Maria Magdalena, a New Mexican dominatrix, among other odd outliers of the weird and dying wild west.

The introduction is interrupted by the abrupt, unexpected, and shocking unraveling of humankind. In recent days, the UN Secretary General outed an American non-profit worker kidnapped by ISIS, who then broadcast the worker being thrown from a building. The US retaliated by destroying ISIS headquarters in Nigeria.

Ukraine.

ISIS outfitted a nuclear weapon onto the private jet of a Saudi sovereign wealth fund representative, who inadvertently delivered the bomb to the annual shareholders meeting of Berkshire Hathaway in Omaha, Nebraska, where it detonated upon landing. FEMA announces the United States is uniquely prepared to meet the moment, as FEMA’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) is fully integrated with the AIs of the nation’s military and critical infrastructure . FEMA’s AI mistakes a unique mutation bloom of Covid in Arizona as a bioweapon, and alerts the Pentagon AI to attack China, its deciphered source. A cascade of algorithmic reactions leads to all-out war. The FEMA AI locks down access to all egress, and the main characters are trapped inside their work building, as the FEMA AI believes they need protection from rotating sources of danger outside throughout the movie. One-by-one, the circumstances of humankind’s downfall team up with the unique character of each archetype to cause their death, until only two characters remain: EVA/the Clever One and ELI/the Good One. EVA/the Clever One, finds a way to stop and even reverse the apocalypse, but to do so the Good One must die. Tortured by this dilemma, EVA considers letting the world end rather than be responsible for the ELI’s death. ELI, the Good One, understands the gravity of the situation, reflexively saying, “Oh god,” to which a bitter EVA snaps back that the situation has proven that no god exists. Instantly, there is no sound, no wind, no violence, no shaking, all kinetic activity abruptly stops, and the Good One turns to her saying, “But I’ve been here the whole time.” Eli/God explains that he is having a “time out,” for the first time in a while regarding humanity, which Eva/the Clever One quickly interprets as existential and defends humanity’s potential, despite everything. The characters are then instantly returned to the movie’s critical moment, and Eva, with surprise help from a character thought dead, saves the world. The survivors banter with Eli/God as the credits begin and the camera pulls away. And away. And away, stopping when it reaches a beefed-up international space station. Inside, mega-wattage actor cameo astronauts observe the ravaged earth below. discussing – among themselves their
plans to restore the planet with the provisions stored there. The film ends with a close-up on the (bitten) apple.

After the credits, the audience is finally shown the never-shown back story of John, who is revealed to have previously been an arms dealer in Nigeria (suspiciously dealing in bioweapons), who had recently transitioned to cyberweapons and was hired by a mysterious consortium to develop the very machine sought after to save the world in the movie. It is revealed that he is the one who told Eva/the Clever One the secret password she needed in the end to save the world.

His gruff mentor, Master Sergeant, states the impossibility of peace and teaches samurai lessons of Musashi as told in The Book of Five Rings. Master Sergeant sleeps, but while Sam keeps watch, he pops pills and falls asleep too. Sam awakens to find a trio of masked men beating Master Sergeant. He reveals to Sam before dying that Sergeant Hollis is responsible. He gives Sam a tanto blade and commands Sam to avenge him. Sam escapes police arrival on the scene. A flip switches in Sam and he goes from addict with PTSD, to single-minded killing machine. He prowls the streets, scouring homeless camps for the Sergeant Hollis. He finds Captain Hollis, an eccentric older black vagabond, who Sam accuses of murder, before realizing the case of mistaken identity. Cop lights flood the scene and Sam runs deeper into the Underground Mall, reaching a dead end. Concealing himself under his robe and feigning sleep, Sam listens as two undercover officers, Officer Musa, an idealistic rookie, and the power-hungry Officer Vasquez, discuss their mission of killing Sam as part of their boss’s operation to rid the streets of crime. Before discovering Sam, the cops get a call from Sergeant Hollis who orders them to meet at their rendezvous. The shame almost pushes Sam to suicide, but the spirit of Master Sergeant appears to remind him the mission is unfinished. He tells Sam to go to The Warrior’s Forest. The sun rises upon Weelaunee People’s Park, as Sergeant Hollis waits, fantasizing about Cop City. The others arrive, and he chastises them. Fed up, Musa goes home to his family. Vasquez assures Hollis but also leaves. Hollis, left alone, leaves a voicemail for his wife to let him come home. He decides to sleep in his car and upon getting in, Sam is waiting in the backseat with blade drawn. Demanding answers, it’s revealed Sergeant Hollis is a foot soldier in a master plan already set into motion. Sergeant Hollis hits the squad alarm. After plunging the blade into Sergeant Hollis’s brain stem, Sam is locked in the backseat as sirens move in. Sam raises the tanto high above his abdomen preparing to commit seppuku.

BOOK 2: WATER. Officer Vasquez opens the car door as a smoke grenade goes off. Sam escapes, evading bullets in his sprint to the woods. Vasquez finds the body of SGT Hollis along with recorded instructions left by Hollis on his phone. Vasquez flees the scene to avoid implication and calls mercenary Private Hawk, an Australian degenerate speed freak military experiment with dissociative personality disorder, to kill Sam. Deep in the woods, Sam struggles to get food. After resting and washing the blood from his hands in the pond, Hawk approaches Sam, engaging him in a disturbing revelation about the illusions of identity. They engage in a fight and after becoming disarmed and playing a game of cat and mouse along the Dolls Head Trail in the woods, they fight, with Sam fatally wounding Hawk, who reveals that he was a PMC who went to Vietnam and was the subject of Project Montauk, mind control experiments and time travel. Hawk takes his own life with a hatchet strike to the jugular.

BOOK 3: FIRE. Sam returns to the city to get food from the shares and discover who orchestrated the offensive. Dahlia, the social worker who runs the food shares, offers Sam and Fox, a trans sex worker comedian, a place to sleep. Fox accepts and Sam declines. Captain Hollis joins and offers his services as a scout, giving Sam a phone. Vasquez calls Musa, who is annoyed that the repercussions of their actions have been so severe. Musa vows to help bring in the cop killer Sam in the name of justice. Vasquez gets no answer from Hawk, so calls another mercenary, a Yakuza assassin, Rikomi, to kill Sam. Sam walks back toward the woods but as a shadowy figure pursues him, he spots a garbage bin fire and a houseless guy on the way. Caught off guard, the houseless guy is Rikomi the ninja assassin, who reveals himself to be a clone of Master Sergeant, attempts to slice his throat but Sam dodges and their fight commences. The shadowy figure is Captain Hollis, trying to warn Sam, but get incapacitated by a throwing star to the face. Eventually, after the tanto gets knocked into the fire, Sam wields the flaming blade in the last minute to throw blinding ashes at Rikomi and kill him. Rikomi reveals that Master Sergeant was most likely also a clone of the original soldier they cloned in Tokyo.

BOOK 4: WIND. Vasquez finds Rikomi’s corpse, while Sam and Captain Hollis hide behind him. Vasquez calls a third mercenary, Big Bro for "overkill". Captain Hollis’s phone rings and Vasquez pulls a gun but is caught by Sam’s blade. Vasquez reveals that all of them were PMC soldiers together in the First Water War building a pipeline in the Amazon for Total Power, a multinational energy corporation. Sam’s memories of Afghanistan are implanted, while the commander, Captain Hollis, lost his memory due to a lobotomy after he went AWOL. Vasquez moves to take Sam out first as a traitor. Sam slices Vasquez’s throat, before Musa enters. Sam and Captain Hollis flee. Sam shows up at Dahlia’s house and passes out, requiring a blood transfusion, which Dahlia provides. The doorbell rings, and paranoid, Sam answers it. No one there, he steps out on to the porch, and before going back inside, is attacked by Big Bro. They get into a knife fight on the porch, which comes to a halt once Sam recognizes his assailant as his actual older brother who he thought died in Syria. They reconcile and are then approached by Officer Musa, who comes in peace and reveals the final messages of Sergeant Hollis, revealing the plans of mastermind, The Divine Ruler.

BOOK 5: NO-THING. Musa and Big Bro bring Sam in to the Total Power energy corporation skyscraper as an offering for The Divine Ruler, along with Dahlia and Fox. Musa takes Dahlia and Fox to a dungeon, where the lower guard kills Fox for outing him as one of the johns she pegs for crypto. After Musa kills the guard in a shootout, Dahlia breaks out fifty houseless individuals including Captain Hollis kept in group holding cells. Sam and Big Bro are stopped on the elevator up to the penthouse, and in an outgunned firefight, the brothers take everyone out, but Big Bro catches a bullet to the neck and dies. In the penthouse office, The Divine Ruler gets frustrated that his ritual is now late and they are going to miss the window of the solar eclipse. Musa calls and says he has brought Sam, and to grant them access. Sam enters alone, and reveals his scheme for becoming God upon the earth by channeling every god of every religion that ever existed, offering his body as the ultimate avatar. They fight and Sam moves in for the kill, as The Divine Ruler offers a place by his side, a military commander in the divine new world, heaven on earth and immortality. Sam declines, but instead of killing The Divine RUler himself, allows the mob to enter and tear the oligarch to pieces. Dahlia, Musa and Captain Hollis enter as Sam leaves, resisting Dahlia’s urges to stay and rebuild the city and heal together. As some of the rescued captives begin to eat The Divine Ruler, Officer Musa reveals his plans to build a better more equal city, where no human goes this hungry again. Sam walks the street out of town, but stops at the underpass where Master Sergeant dies, seeing that Dahlia had made a memorial for him with a photo of Sam and his mentor. He meditates, at peace.

A Broken Soldier

Writer: Noel Kearns
Number of pages: 112
Country of Origin: United Kingdom

A young soldier suffering from PTSD deserts the army and hides away in an inner city housing estate. Now, can his unlikely friendships with a frightened old woman and a troublesome young tearaway halt his deadly descent into darkness?

Inspired by true events:
In July 2009, British forces were engaged in fierce battle with the Taliban in Helmand Province, the epicentre of the ‘War in Afghanistan’. Over ten days, fifteen soldiers lost their lives, the highest concentration of British deaths in the twenty-year long war. Six of the fallen soldiers were just teenagers, including the youngest soldier to die in the entire conflict.
A major thread of ‘A Broken Soldier’ is the unfolding news of each of the fifteen soldier’s deaths, told in the exact order and timeline that they tragically occurred.

Outline:
Jerome hides away in a flat that was once the home of his grandmother, who recently died. His mind is plagued by horrific memories of an IED bomb attack when he recently served in Afghanistan, in which two of his army buddies were killed and he was severely injured.

In the next-door flat lives Esther, a frail old woman who suffers from agoraphobia but she refuses all assistance from Social Services. To distract from her loneliness, she watches hours of TV news coverage of the onging war in Afghanistan.

Jerome spends his days sitting outside in the grounds of the estate. Darryl, a lonely youngster, approaches and is startled by Jerome’s aggressive mood.

Jerome has now taken to repeated bouts of self-harm, by near drowning himself in the bath, a technique he uses to remember details of the deadly IED attack.

To distract his mind, Jerome riffles through his grandmother’s things and finds an old photo of himself with Esther and her late husband Jim, who was a soldier in his younger days.

Jerome knocks on Esther’s door and leaves a bag of groceries outside. Eventually, Esther retrieves the bag and searches inside and finds the old photo of Jerome.

The following day, Esther gingerly opens her door and invites Jerome inside. Over the next few days, a cautious friendship between them slowly blossoms.

Although Darryl is wary of Jerome, a friendship develops and the boy opens up about his neglectful mother Tanya and her violent boyfriend Wayne.

One day, Esther suffers a major angina attack. Jerome wants to call a doctor but instead she asks him go to the chemist to get a repeat prescription. On the prescription form, Jerome notices her doctor’s number and phones it.

By now a close bond of friendship and trust has developed between Jerome and Esther. His mental anguish begins to find some respite and she relies on him for companionship and practical help.

One day, a Social Worker unexpectedly arrives, saying that someone had phoned Esther’s doctor after she had an angina attack. Esther feels totally betrayed and furiously orders Jerome to leave.

Jerome feels completely dejected and his aggressive temper returns. He assaults Darryl who runs away upset.

Jerome repeatedly asks Esther’s forgiveness but she remains too hurt and angry.

As a troubled Jerome sits outside, Tanya, who has just split up from Wayne, makes a sexual move on him that is scornfully rejected. She vows revenge.

Over the following days and nights, Jerome remains outside. On not hearing any sound from next-door and on seeing TV news coverage of the horrific deaths and injuries of young soldiers in Afghanistan, Esther’s angry mood slowly changes to one of concern.

Without warning, Jerome is attacked by Wayne, who warns him to stay away from Tanya. But Wayne has misjudged the strength of a fit young soldier. Jerome brutally smashes Wayne’s head in until he lies dead-like on the floor. Upon realizing what he has done, Jerome flees back to the flat.

On hearing panic-stricken noises coming from next-door, Esther calls out to Jerome but he doesn’t respond. Now Esther realizes the unthinkable, that to help Jerome, she must conquer her worst fear and leave her flat to go next-door.

With his head under the bath water, Jerome is determined to relive the IED attack in full. As more detail is relieved, he recalls the horrifying fact that it was his own naive actions that lured his two mates into the IED trap, to their deaths!

Esther finds Jerome in the bath but his body has turned blue. She screams out as she shakes and slaps him back to life.

Later, Esther confides that her beloved Jim, the former soldier, had suffered for years with PTSD. This revelation seems to lance a terrible pain in Jerome’s brain. Now Esther pleads with Jerome to contact the army to get expert help. He agrees but only on condition that she contact Social Services.

Before contacting the army, Jerome goes outside to find Darryl who tells him that Wayne will be ok. Jerome apologises to Darryl who is glad to have his friend back.

Jerome, dressed in his army uniform, goes to Esther to tell her that he is returning to the army for treatment. Esther is so proud of him and they embrace fondly before he leaves.

Later, as Esther sits alone, there is a knock on her door. Outside stands Darryl holding a bag of groceries.

Number of pages: -
Country of Origin: United Kingdom

Kit Manley, the eldest son, and heir apparent to the Manley dynasty, sits at a table at the annual family barbecue, watching his younger, free-spirited brother, Russell, happily getting drunk on beer. Following a warning from his father that Russell is his responsibility, Kit's years of resentment, including playing second fiddle to the golden boy, Russell, and being overlooked for the vacant Head of Finance position at the company, overflow into a seething rant to his wife, Jasmine.
Later, and calmer, Kit tries to involve Russell in light conversation, but Russell soon finds a way to torment his elder brother further. Russell goes into the house to get a jumper, and Kit decides to follow him and give him a piece of his mind. He finds Russell stumbling around in a drunken stupor, trying to get his head into the sleeve of the jumper. Far from amusing Kit, this seen angers him further. He realises that a small nudge on the top of the stairs would have Russell tumbling down, hopefully injuring himself. He concludes this is rough but fair justice, and just as Russell manages to find the correct hole, his head pushing through the garment, he smiles and gives him that little push. Russell tumbles down the ornate stairway and lands on the marble-floored hallway where guests gather around his lifeless body. He is dead. Blood is seeping from a head wound. Kit looks on in horror from above. He didn't mean to kill him, but that is what he did. He takes the side stairs down and out to the garden, where he joins the back of the gathered throng of guests. No one is the wiser.

A week later, at his brother's funeral, Kit's heartbroken father takes him aside and makes a confession to him. He knew that Russell would never amount to much, but he wanted to protect him from the big, cruel world, which is why they were so harsh on Kit. They needed to prepare him, toughen him for life, being the head of a massive corporation – Manley Corporation. Kit is crestfallen. Then the bombshell – Charles intended to announce at the barbecue that he was going to step down as CEO of his company and promote Kit to the position, but due to Russell's death, he feels he needs to sell the business. As they walk back, sombrely to the funeral car, it is Kit who regrets that decision more than anyone.

Logline - Timing Is Everything… Or Nothing. The responsible brother sees his younger, carefree sibling as a threat to him taking over the family business until fate steps in.

Deadline To Death

Writer:   Elliot Stanton
Number of pages: -
Country of Origin: United Kingdom

Life imitates art, imitates life, fatally blurring the lines between reality and make-believe. A crime writer struggles to complete a manuscript until he visits the venue of the story's finale. There, he meets an elderly but mysterious female fan who he later finds out knows him much better than he could imagine.

Synopsis - Author CJ Billings is pressured by his publisher to finish a novel. He has an idea that a few days away in the finale setting will give him the inspiration he desperately needs. After arriving in Bude, Cornwall, a fan of his, recognises him and invites him back to her cottage for a bite to eat and to sign her CJ Billings novels. Margaret is an older woman who lives alone. An unfinished painting in her house curiously provides the inspiration CJ was looking for. The harsh, depressing, stormy harbour scene gives CJ the ending for his protagonist. CJ revisits the following day, and Margaret admits to him that her younger life was far from idyllic, and she escaped to Cornwall for reasons she keeps to herself. Margaret begins to feel tired, and CJ promises to visit again the next day before returning home to London, but when he does, he is met by a neighbour, Emily, who informs him that Margaret has died. She gives him one of his books that Margaret had marked 'For Chris'. On his return home, a shell-shocked CJ finds a letter within the pages of the book - it is a confession by Margaret. She moved from London to escape justice after murdering a baby in her care when she was a nanny. The confessional story bears an uncanny resemblance to the conclusion of CJ's book. The conundrum he has is a moral one. Does he submit his manuscript knowing that a real-life murderer inspired the inspiration for ending, or does he delete the whole computer file, preserving his morality but possibly ruining his career?

Patricia, Jacob and the demon, together, prove to be a winning combination and Patricia garners the vaunted gardening trophy.

Patricia, comprehending the great potential in harnessing demonic powers, convinces Jacob and the demon to help her win the affection of her estranged daughter, Gayle. Patricia plans to assist Gayle in an ambitious campaign to reclaim a forested area to its natural state, and then gain government protection for this area.

Their endeavor is complicated by the fact that a land developer has ambitions of his own for the forested area, and by the fact that the demon has come to the end of its tenure on earth, and is eager to return to Hell.

When Jacob compels the demon to remain on earth and work longer than the agreed upon time, Hell comes calling, and the relationships, and lives, of Patricia and Jacob are placed in jeopardy.

Fast-forward 18 years, AMANDA is a 20-something-year-old army sniper/preacher's kid stationed in Afghanistan. What would be a usual night for her unit is disrupted when a HERDER rushes toward their base, signaling wildly for help. Amanda is forced to shoot him in the leg, after which point the unit learns he was running from giants-- actual giants of biblical proportions. Amanda's unit is put in charge of investigation/containing the situation and when they affirm that they are dealing with real monsters, they are assigned an above-top-secret task of protecting the world from their wrath.
As the only believer in her unit, Amanda's biblical knowledge becomes indispensable to the mission. Along with commandeered man-of-faith-and-science SETH WATERS, she leads the strategy under the Agnostic MAJOR STRYKER. Amanda uses what she can remember from her father's teachings, some tidbits from brief phone calls between them, and spot-readings of the bible to gather intel. At the same time, she realizes she has a special understanding and rapport with these creatures that others on the mission do not.

Meanwhile, demons summoned by power-hungry Russian agents and evil priests have joined the fray and plot to unleash Armageddon on the world. As the supernatural activity goes global, Amanda's military unit joins forces with the Russian Spetsnaz to keep it under control.

While the giants are tracked, ARCH DEMON AKIBEEL leaves in his wake a trail of portals that spew demonic chaos. Amanda struggles to maintain the confidence of her unit and is forced to defend her belief while losing friends to the fight. She hearkens back to a moment in her youth when she first encountered demonic activity and used the power of her faith to overcome it. It is then that she realizes she's had all that it took to defeat the forces of darkness-- belief. Amanda calls upon ANGELS OF FIRE from heaven and charges them in the battle, which they win for the forces of good.
