Logline: 
A World War 2 pilot is brought into the future to lead a team of American bad-asses from the past to rescue the President from a terrorist state.
Synopsis/Details: 

We're in 2150 and the US has changed significantly. A civil war 100 years ago has transformed the Pacific Northwest into the Turner Coalition of American States, a white ethno-state inspired by "The Turner Diaries." With an uneasy relationship with the rest of America, the TCS kidnaps the American President as part of a plan to invade and take over.

With modern America having microchip implants to allow access to banking, et al, and a Vice President unwilling to launch a formal war to rescue the President a plucky Secretary of Defense calls pon a secret experiment to bring in four Medal of Honor winners to drop behind enemy lines.

Rescued from the moment of their death and given a choice of going back to that moment, or accepting this suicide mission, four men and their Indian Guide from modern times are sent to cross enemy lines and rescue the President. They all have skills suited for the mission; a pilot skilled in the World War 2 planes that populate the TCS Air Force, a close quarters combat specialist, a demolitions expert and a long range sniper.

Given a traitor to the TCS with extensive undercover work as an Indian Guide into the TCS, the five elite soldiers will have to fight their way into the heart of the TCS President's Wolf Lair and get back without causing an international incident.

The Writer: Scott Sawitz

Character-centric writer who's a whiz with dialogue. I like to find people at a specific point in their life, how they got there and how they deal with the consequences of their actions.

My latest short film, "The Executioner's Dilemma" is currently on the festival circuit and can be viewed on YouTube.
