Thane Walker is an FBI agent who, after catching a white-collar criminal, sees the locked assets disappear from the bank account. He traces the transactions and finds that the money went to several charity organizations. The suspect of doing this is Heloise King, but when Thane comes to her home, she runs.
Based on what he finds, he thinks he has her next target, and they both end up in the same office building the next night.
That night Polly Brown will force the company's CEO to move money to her account, money that Heloise plan on stealing afterward.
Unfortunately, the kidnapping drama escalates, and soon Thane, his colleague, and Heloise are part of Polly's hostage.
Heloise transfers the company's money to Polly. But when Heloise's already setup automatic transfer to charity starts, Polly shoots Thane's colleague and the CEO.
Heloise and Thane try to get out of the building, but the door out is blocked by one of Polly's thugs, who shoots at them.
They get separated, and Heloise has a chance to go free but gives the force outside the information they need to burst inside and arrest Polly.
Thane is ready to let Heloise go, because he has seen nyances in crime. Heloise on the other hand turn herself over to Thane because she has understood the harm her crimes causes.

The Writer: Désirée Nordlund

I've been writing for as long as I can remember and writing screenplays is what I love the most. When I write spec scripts there is often a female lead and very little talk about guys. I like odd, misunderstood characters as well. If I am hired as a writer I dare say I'm easy to work with, and if we disagree I work to find a way that makes us both happy. I can be budget-oriented if needed, and kill darlings if needed too. Award-winning screenwriter with several short scripts produced, one with Dick Pope behind the camera. This is the latest short film on my resume: The Kill / El último golpe I'm also into novels. Here is a book trailer for Quickfinger . Go to bio
