Summary of script:

A Scottish bar owner finds her secrets exposed and her family threatened by a violent criminal from her past.

SYNOPSIS: It’s 2008. Shannon (19) is pretty, and a little cheap. She teases the men at a beach bar in Spain, as jealous lover RAY (43) looks on. Bartender DUKES cautions her this is not a safe game. Ray’s powerful. Connected. Ruthless. Worse, Ray’s sadistic right-hand man GAV doesn’t like the way Shannon has Ray wrapped around her finger. It’s bad for business. And Gav likes the business. Especially when he can hurt people.

Shannon makes a mistake when she flirts with the wrong guy, handsome Scotsman NICK. Suddenly, a real connection is there—an irresistible flame. They sneak away when they can, to a private island they call their AVALON. But Ray keeps sending Gav after them. Gav grows more frustrated, especially when sent to babysit Nick and make sure the guy leaves Spain.

Then Shannon sees an opportunity. She steals all the money from Ray’s safe and gets the hell out of Spain, back to Scotland and her older sister JENNIFER. Gav is livid. Blames Ray for being weak. Grabbing a baseball bat, Gav beats Ray to death.

Now Gav’s in charge. He wants Shannon—but Dukes offers him a deal…

PRESENT DAY, Scotland. Shannon’s under the thumb of protective, controlling Jennifer. The two sisters run their own bar, but Jennifer makes the decisions. Shannon’s teen daughter JAMIE is the heart of their lives, even if the teen thinks her mom is Jennifer. Everything changes when Nick walks in. The old feelings are there, even with no contact in almost 15 years. Jennifer’s carefully built control starts to slip. Shannon wants Nick! Jennifer fears losing her sister and her surrogate child.

She can’t let that happen.

Back in Spain, Gav makes a fatal mistake by raping and killing a 14-year-old girl marked for human trafficking. His boss sends a few heavies to demand $100K. Or else. Gav knows where to get it. That long-ago deal with Dukes is about to pay off.

Meanwhile Nick realizes Jamie is his daughter and is convinced he and Shannon should be together. Jennifer grows angrier as she feels herself losing control, especially once Shannon starts intervening in parenting decisions. The sudden arrival of Gav threatens the last vestiges of power she has. When Gav kidnaps Jamie, she breaks.

The stakes rise in bloody fights and desperate chases. All Shannon wants is her freedom, with Nick and her daughter. She’s willing to kill Gav to make that happen—and almost does. It’s with his blood on his hands that she faces Jennifer and Jamie. But as a train rushes toward them, will Jennifer be able to let go?

Website: http://www.scottishscreenwriter.com

Torn between his love for two sisters, furious at his father for submitting to the Nazis, a young college student faces the choice of a lifetime when he must decide if he will join the occupation… or the resistance.

SYNOPSIS: 2020. The Swastika flies over Scotland. It’s been more than 70 years since the failed Allied invasion at Normandy, yet the Resistance is still strong. A secret network of spies and freedom fighters operate out of Catholic churches, hiding the names of their members in church ledgers. The Americans and Soviets are poised to help liberate the country. The time for action is NOW.

College student DAVID WALLACE has no idea how crucial he’s about to be. He’s just a normal guy, hanging out in the pub with his buddies, dating a pretty girl, being frustrated by the usual father/son arguments, steering clear of the more intense Nazis at school, especially arrogant classmate SIMON. Then David’s ex, LOUISE, returns after a year away… to find David dating her younger sister. She pushes that aside. She has bigger problems. She just blew up a Nazi police car and accidentally killed some people. Now, she needs David’s help. Why? Louise is a spy for the Resistance.

Her handler, JB, and his aide ROCKY, are determined to push the Nazis back. Especially now that the SS seems to be focusing on Catholic churches, and Simon is purging the school of Resistance sympathizers. What do the Nazis really want, though? They want to cut off the head of the resistance—STUART. Who happens to be David’s uncle, and who’s supposed to be dead.

That’s why David becomes the center of schemes and traps and plots. Simon and the Nazis want to use him to find and arrest Louise. JB and Rocky want Louise to get David into the Resistance because that will force Stuart to reveal himself, be captured, and let THEM take over the movement. They aren’t OK with Stuart’s subtle plans. They’re ready for guns and bombs. Louise wants to use David because her parents are missing, and the deal to get them back involves David.

All around David, things are changing. He’s never had to take action before. Complaining had seemed enough. But now, one friend is beaten in an alley, his uncle’s life is threatened, another friend is captured by Simon and waterboarded, his father urges him to stay out of it, and Louise’s parents are at risk. He has to decide.
He chooses liberation. And on one passionate night, he chooses Louise again. It’s the last peaceful moment for a while. Why? The twists are coming fast. Rocky is revealed to be a Nazi spy. JB is killed. The ledgers are confiscated and now all the Resistance is in danger. David must blow up a church and blame it on Simon to change national opinion and drive the country to enraged action. Louise must risk it all to meet her parents at a secret rendezvous, even if it’s a trap.

As everyone converges, identities will be revealed, lives lost, plots thwarted… but can David and Louise save the day, and begin the path to a free Scotland?

SCREENPLAY TRAILER: The Christians – Earth’s Cry Heaven’s Smile, by Tony Gioutsos & Linda Wright

http://www.thechristiansmovie.com

Logline: Exploring the harrowing times of Christian persecution in history, a devoted present-day Christian named Christos, a brilliant mathematician, loses his family and his way due to pride and the love of money; can he find his way back? A truly Epic portrayal of Christians throughout history….

Pitch: The Passion of the Christ meets It’s a Wonderful Life

“LORD, IS HE GOING TO DIE?” That’s what the viewer is unsure of as they view CHRISTOS ICHTHYS as he laid beaten, bloodied, and maimed in an antiquated prison cell in the Middle East. Let’s go back in time. Our story begins when Christos, as a very young boy, discovers he has supernatural powers. Tormented by nightmare after nightmare, Christos finds himself awakened to the frightening horrors of reliving the past deaths of the ancient Martyrs. Through his supernatural abilities, Christos “feels” their death. But, after each nightmare, Christos SEES a DOVE fly off into the sky. Shaken to the core, Christos’ daily quest becomes to find the deeper meaning of all of it and what does it have to do with him. But, he’s reluctant to share it with anyone for fear of ridicule. By the time Christos hits high school, he proudly confesses he is a Christian and taps into his excellent abilities in sports and science and math with a keen sensibility to the mystical realm. He excels at everything he does and “wants to change the world.” However, due to lack of understanding why he can “feel” and “see” these Martyrs being persecuted for their Christian faith, Christos finds himself in a war between the Lord and the world. After Christos marries the love of his life, DAWN, he finds deep support for his brilliant mathematical mind. But when the demands of a family and his boss’ demands on his ground-breaking Algorithms enter his life, Christos starts to veer off his God-ordained path for the sake of money. Suddenly, he finds himself jetting all over the world, leaving his family and true responsibilities behind. One day, Christos is made a million dollar offer to buy out his patents. Even though he goes off to pray to God and to look for his “dove” confirmation, he doesn’t find one or peace. Concerned, Christos’ best friend and partner, CUZ, confronts him: “What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?” Brushing him aside, Christos declares he will do what he wants and ends up compulsively selling his company and his soul. Dawn and Cuz can only watch as Christos walks away from God and — his pride becomes his fall. Meanwhile, Christos’ decision had even deeper complications. His children no longer desire to be around him and Dawn finds herself rejected for the sake of money. When Cuz suddenly quits the business and moves to Egypt, Christos entertains his pain through alcohol and strip joints. Oblivious to the unraveling of his family, Christos is stunned when Dawn leaves him. As the nightmares start to reoccur, Christos finds himself totally lost in a world he never meant to be in. A story so emotional you’ll cry and be on the edge of your seats. A story you just can’t push aside because your heart will be open to the ones that have already laid their lives down for the glory of God. You will find yourself rooting for Christos all the way to the very last page when the question “LORD, IS HE GOING TO DIE?” is answered.

SCREENPLAY TRAILER: Lady Liberty: The Sherman Skolnick Story, by Nelson S. Thall

http://www.ladylibertythemovie.com/

Type of Screenplay: Feature Film

Summary of Script: Story: Lady Liberty is the really true moment-by-moment non-fictionalized dramatic story of a political activist and freedom fighter aka ‘Citizen Gadfly’ Sherman Skolnick and his quest for Justice against a Corrupt Cabal of State of Illinois High Court Judges. He wins back money swindled from his parents and exposes Judicial Corruption in the High Courts during the 1960’s and ’70’s. It is a story of the little man overcoming Goliathan-sized hurdles in a Life and Death Struggle.

Plot: Skolnick becomes an ‘Amici Curiae’, (formal legal) meaning a ‘Friend of the Court’, where he uses ‘Guerrilla Law Tactics,’ and ‘Closet Work’, to Impeach and Imprison 60 Judges of the Illinois High Courts. He defines “Guerilla Law” as unorthodox but legal means of fighting Judicial Impropriety.

His Methods: Skolnick used the Legal Motion “there has been Fraud upon this Court,” before ‘Dirty Judges’ who must be disqualified from Court because of proven Bias.

Action: Skolnick goes to ‘”War” to root out Corruption rampant in the Illinois Judiciary. The stage was set for dramatic action.

Big-City Daily Newspaper Headlines Read: “HIGH COURT JUDGE LINKED TO BANK DEAL.” Chicago’s newspapers were beginning to agree with Skolnick’s linking the State’s Chief Justice’s personal finances together with the “High Court’s Decisions” in important Criminal Cases.

Judge Healy subpoenaed Skolnick into his Court and tried to force him to reveal his sources. Skolnick vowed never to reveal his sources “no matter how long they keep me in jail.” Thus Skolnick went to jail amid much favorable publicity and won the Public’s sympathy for his plight.

Immediately the State-appointed Commission sided with Skolnick, and Recommended the Removal of the Corrupt Judges and the F.B.I. used Skolnick to put many other Judges into Jail.

Pitch:

Time Magazine in ’69 said it was,”Skolnick’s Guerrilla War”
This is the Story of How Sherman Skolnick became The “Great American Judge-Buster”
LADY LIBERTY
Time Magazine wrote…
Sherman Skolnick,”..carved a full-time career as a modern-day Robin Hood for the law’s many losers.”
News of Sherman’s Triumph reached The White House.
nderdog Shocks the System! Citizen gadfly becomes public hero!
Skolnick…
Invented “Guerrilla-Law” Tactics.
Imprisoned High Court Judges.
Cleaned-Up The Courts.
Rescued the Downtrodden.
Balanced the Scales of Justice.
Lady Liberty Is How Sherman Skolnick Became
“The Great American Judge-Buster” (The New York Times)

Raison D’Etre: We all have our own handicaps of one sort or another that we need to overcome and learn to use to our advantage. Skolnick’s methods can teach everyone how to make the best of their handicap, physical, emotional, cerebral or spiritual.
