In an old diner overlooking central Los Angeles, a Bar Owner and a Bar Fly while the night away talking politics and culture, presenting two takes on why the world is imperfect and, of course, what it needs to be put right in their eyes. Their conversation is disturbed when a mysterious woman with a travel case named MAD ADDY, a wise-cracking but droll individual who appears to be dressed for business, joins them, orders a drink, throws her own views into the debate, and turns a little dark with a startling admission; she's done regretful things her whole life and fears what the afterlife has in store for her.

Next, we're a fly on the wall with two aspirational Thugs chatting about their ambitious plans debating, with some passion, what the ideal supercars are to spend their riches on when it all comes together. They’ve got a problem though - they need two recruits who fit a certain innocent-looking profile to help take part in an illicit exchange where they plan to double-cross the other party. Singling out STEWY and her best friend AMEENA, two small-time drug dealers, eating in the same diner, they talk them into taking part in the job, one that’s very dangerous because they are going up against a crime lord.

We skip forward a few days later to see things have gone horribly wrong as Stewy is escorted back into the diner by Ameena and the Thugs hiding a knife wound to her gut. Ameena hides her in the restroom and, while trying to play it cool by ordering some food and acting normal, tries desperately with the Thugs to find medical help. Realizing that’s out of the question, they are left with a tough choice to make; help Stewy and most likely go to jail or leave her to die and run free. Ameena, who’s found a syringe of what looks like heroin in the car they’ve escaped in, comes up with a third option; give Stewy a phone and the smack, run for it, and let her choose if she wants to call an ambulance or end things peacefully before she bleeds out.

Now we go back a few weeks and focus on Stewy while on a date in the diner with a handsome young Irishman. We gain insight into who she is and what makes her tick. She is a young woman obsessed with her own failings and relegating herself to the scrapheap of life, using drugs casually just to get by and, even when blessed with the wise advice of her hero, a local rockstar eating at another table, can’t help but obsess about her own imperfections. The date goes well and romance blossoms fast but the Irishman picks up on Stewy’s addiction issues and, despite her wishing he’d sweep her off her feet, ducks out of the date and leaves her his number with a clear instruction - to call him when she’s ready to deal with her demons.

We pick up our opening conversation at the bar where Mad Addy is now enjoying the continued debate with the Bar Owner and Bar Fly. The topic of death circles back and, after asking them both how they’d like to die, she whips out a Beretta and kills them both in cold blood before retiring to the restroom where she finds Stewy seemingly dead on a toilet with the syringe in her arm. We now realize that it was Mad Addy who stabbed Stewy and she leaves after attempting to apologize to what she believes is a corpse. However, Stewy has only passed out and, when she comes to in a state of delirium, manages to stagger out of the restroom and shoot Mad Addy in a fit of revenge. With both women slumped on the floor and facing imminent death, they air all their dirty laundry. Mad Addy is desperately looking for some redemption before she passes away because she knows she’s destined for hell while Stewy admits to always having dreamt of becoming a musician but has never been able to make it work. When the topic of love comes up, Stewy admits to having strong feelings for the Irishman she met but feels too inadequate to pursue a relationship. Mad Addy, spying a chance to do something good as her last act, pressures Stewy to either call an ambulance, claim to be an innocent victim in the shootout, and get her life on track or, if these really are her last moments, call the man she loves and tell him before it’s too late. Stewy, left with the power in her hands, and two ways out that are both sorely tempting, chooses a third option we don't see coming; a bittersweet conclusion where she calls Ameena, tells her to keep running, and with one last shot between the eyes, sends her deceitful nemesis to a world of their worst nightmares.

The Writer: CJ Walley

I’m here for the gritty movies, the rebellious movies, those films that pack a punch far harder than their budgets would suggest. As a spec script writer, I love to create pulpy thrillers, mostly with female leads, that feature strong themes, brutal action, witty dialogue, and twisting scenes that have characters vying for power or falling for one another. As a producer and writer-for-hire, I’m production savvy, budget conscious, and market orientated, able to write in a variety of styles and genres with the ultimate goal to entertain viewers while turning profit for investors. 2012 was the year I started screenwriting from Staffordshire, England and it’s been a hell of a ride, from my...
