Unbeknownst to Kyle, his brother-in-law BEN HUTCHINS (33) and Ben's brother RYAN (35) use their fishing business as a cover for their drug operations, working in collaboration with STEVE PHILIPS (50s), an esteemed member of their town. Kyle reaches out to his connection MARCUS (39) who exposes the connection between the Hutchins's and Steve. Ben begins to withdraw from his drug-dealing ways due to his daughter's distress over her friend's death but Ryan greedily wants to continue their illicit business so he drugs his brother. In the hospital, Ben reveals to Kyle that there's going to be a large shipment of drugs handled that day on the Fourth of July. Kyle organizes a plan while Steve takes Julia hostage. Amidst the parade, Kyle chases down Ryan's truck in a climactic car chase. Meanwhile, Marcus rescues Julia and has Steve arrested. With the conspiracy behind him, Kyle can finally focus on his marriage and starts a family with his wife.

Lyter any feedback is greatly appreciated! Loglines are so hard to write. I have a similar angle to your screenplay. A cop discovers his fisherman brother in law is involved in a small scale drug ring. It's questions the cops loyalty to the department and his integrity.

Lyter Daniel

That is interesting - very similar but very different backdrops. Yes - any Cop questions?

Just message me ... I love to offer suggestions about what I know and have experienced ...

I really miss Boston

Christine Capone

I'm also in the process of fixing this logline.
