Synopsis/Details: 

Benji, a developmentally disabled adult, is trying to finish high school and get his diploma. Loving, and sometimes naive, he is duped by fellow students into going snipe hunting. His brother and caretaker Jim gets wind of the prank and becomes furious. Jim shares his anger with his own friend Jefferson, a hunter and rabid gun advocate. When Jim tells Jefferson of the offense, Jefferson offers to trick the pranksters into taking some of their own medicine.

Jefferson follows the pranksters on their next prank, and sets up a fake "most dangerous game" scenario where the pranksters believe they are going to be killed as Jefferson hunts them. All goes as Jefferson plans, until he accidentally hits one of the students with a mis-timed shot.

Benji, unaware of the shooting, finds out from Jim about the payback prank and demands that Jim take him to the forest lands where the practical joke is being played, or he will go straight to the police and turn in Jim and Jefferson. Benji and his brother arrive at the forest lands just when Jefferson is trying to decide if he is going to kill all the witnesses and bury their bodies in the woods.

The Writer: Deenur _

Screenwriter, author, all around good guy. Passionate about strong plotting and characterization. I see way too many character violations for the sake of moving the plot along. If the writing is strong and thoughtful, it will move the reader/viewer along, engaging them, pulling them in, and making them fans. My work has been read and vetted by B-movie film legend Bill Rebane, actor Joseph C. Phillips, and producer Jeff Faehnle. https://www.imdb.com/name/nm11122306/ Go to bio
