Synopsis/Details: 

This is my Biopic, my true story.
Chance is the last Englishman held in the notorious Carabanchel prison in Madrid. His reputation and skills capture the imagination of corrupt officials for future crime sprees when he gets out. His charisma and martial arts skills enable him to recruit a band of international brothers; hit-men inmates from the four corners of the Earth, who battle constantly for survival against the indigenous gypsy population of the prison. Bravery, loyalty and low cunning propel them to the final day of the Carabanchel prison: Violently fast and furious character led sequences of devastating martial arts and galvanic scenes of violence in a place that will never again be seen.
His orchestrated release by corrupt officials enables him to continue his drug smuggling operations to even greater rewards but the chain of events nearly cost him his life and he escapes by the skin of his teeth, penniless.
The story is about how a regular, conventional, law abiding guy becomes embroiled in the perilous world of drug smuggling and the consequential suspense and action-packed adventures that are part and parcel of the international drug runner's lot.
It highlights the endearing loyalty and high moral fibre required of loved ones to survive the stresses and strains of incarceration whilst in prison and the temptations of sex, drugs and booze in the wealthy underworld of drug trading.
The story is a revelation of drug smuggling techniques and the accompanying hair-raising passage through various sea ports and high-speed seaborne operations from North Africa.
Protected by corrupt officials to enable the drug smuggling, yet hunted down by the same officials when loyalties change, the twists and turns of MOUTH OF THE BEAST takes you to places you will never see – Carabanchel prison has been demolished, but like Belsen and Alcatraz the memory remains.

The Writer: Christopher Chance

I am an "optioned" screenwriter and a published author with books published by the Penguin-Random House Group (Mainstream) and Strand Publishing, UK. I adapted one of my books to screenplay and both book and screenplay are optioned. I adapted another of my books to screenplay because I retained the Film Rights so I need not confer with my publisher should the work be optioned. I have five other completed feature spec scripts available for review, which are mainly Drama but with strong elements of Thriller, Suspense and Action throughout each work. Also, most of my characters are people I have met and the locations are places I have experienced. This is why my work is authentic and... Go to bio
