What Reviewers are saying
The International Slamdance Screenplay Competition,“This script has a lot going for it in that it’s a very interesting story because of the brutality and the media coverage that was included with it. All the characters are well thought out and written very realistically. The inter-cuts of going back and forth between time works great, and it’s a very well put together script. A bit more conciseness and it will have you at the edge of your seat page-after-page.”
