A trailer park girl works as a waitress at a roadside stop off in pre millennium USA late 90's and accepts she will never get a ticket out so spends her time fantasizing in the alternate world of books. One day a drifter passes through who realizes the person serving her freebies is hiding behind a much wider intellect and guess what? She ain't what she seems either. Far from being a down and out she is an underworld vixen who clocked some big cash swop is going to happen when a mark arrives on the Greyhound bus. There is a saying in life, "It takes one to know one." Soon the bag lady outwits the crooks planning to rob their victim on the highway but she still has to persuade the waitress to join her on the road. The servant has two choices, stay put or jump ship and be her side kick in the next big sting in an Atlanta hotel. Banal, comfortable security or run with the hare and hunt with the hounds. By the turn of a card the two women embark on a road trip, after outwitting Da Hood they are now pursued by International Crime Lords who have not taken kindly to being tricked by women. Revenge is as much personal as it is monetary and their ruthless antagonist now has a 24/7 obsession about the two women. The two bold characters take on the world despite being seen as "lowly" by naive people who pass judgement merely on appearances, highlighting face value can be a tool used to outwit higher powers.

Attached Talent: 

There are SAG actors up for the small budget trailer (Covid permitting) but this short will be part of a pitch for finance for feature/stream/web. Two highly trained directors are available 24/7 and writer is available on set to change script at short notice due to the fact legal post covid rules may change on the day. (Rules are changing daily)
