Once a loser, always a loser. Todd begs to disagree.
Synopsis/Details: 

Todd, who has always been a loser, is offered a dubious contract by Lou, for a shipment of merchandise. Lou tells
Todd he dare not refuse the honour of being offered a contract, as this will make him a winner.

Todd buys a crate of something, but it has to be insured, despite its value being unknown. This is a special type
of insurance, organized by Craig, one of Lou's dubious associates.

When it is delivered, Todd opens the crate to find tins of tomato soup.

Have they made a fool out of Todd, their designated loser.

Only Hannah, a friend, has an idea how to change Todd from a loser into a winner, using his experience as a model.

The Writer: Peter Gartner

I wrote a few screenplays a while back, but now I have a place to submit them. At the moment I am painting in watermixable oils and have a gallery at FineArtAmerica. I am concentrating on art now, but if there is some interest in my screenplays, I could submit more. I start with "The Lightship". I have now posted some more. I want to create original scenarios with surprises for the audience. I do not want my scripts to be predictable. The unusual is always best. A script should be a journey. You don't know the destination, but you will enjoy the journey getting there. I like to explore the psychology of my characters, to give the story more depth. Also, there is now a link to my paintings... Go to bio
