The Checkout Line
Film (Short and Sci-Fi) Director It's 2056. America is bankrupt. A Third World War decimates the northern half of the country, leaving behind an irradiated wasteland. The general population is 83% unemployed. Healthcare extinct. Desperation and despair run rampant. To prevent more disease and bodies littering the landscape, suicide has been deemed illegal. Anyone found to have taken their own life will leave a further financial burden on their next of kin. The newly formed corporate government establishes Voluntary Dissolvement Centers (V.D.C.'s) to assist in government sanctioned suicide, commonly known as Checkout Lines. A series of unfortunate events lead Nate, an unemployed miner living in the "northern half" to resort to the ultimate final decision, to end his life at The Checkout Line. Enter Jamie, the young prostitute who cannot stand the shame anymore. Fate and timing will bring these two lost souls together, and in the darkest of hours comes the hint of a spark.
