Won 2nd place, ONE IN TEN screenplay contest.


JAKE is a homicide inspector with recurring nightmares of when his teenage girlfriend was abducted in front of him. He’s tough and irreverent, while his partner, BRADLEY, is polite, well-groomed, and gay. They constantly engage in witty banter. Escalating incidents that involve street fighting, martial arts, gunplay, falling, and a parkour chase over rooftops, nearly killing Jake, mysteriously lead to a dead girl with a photo of Jake’s lost girlfriend on her face. Bizarre incidences follow one another until Jake manages to save a victim. Their ensuing relationship, and that of his slang-tossing twelve-year-old daughter, gets caught up in the developing vendetta. Violent encounters continue to escalate, seemingly with the sole purpose of tormenting Jake. When Jake and Bradley attempt to safeguard the saved victim, they’re all abducted. Jake and Bradley’s salvation must come from Jake’s understanding of his past and how it connects to his present. Through ingenuity and near death surprises, Jake unravels the riddle of the vendetta in time to save his daughter and new girlfriend, but the cost is beyond what he could have imagined.
