Age Rating:

Aidan Moore loses his family over a case of mistaken identity and vows to fulfil Talion Law in their name against the city’s most ruthless lawbreaker using his own Russian Roulette setting against him.

A simple case of mistaken identity sets into motion a chain of events that costs one man his family and threatens to cost another his empire.
Aidan Moore is a loving husband and father who has served his country and is reaping the benefits that only a home life and simple pleasures can provide. That is at least the case until he leaves town in the hope of sealing a work contract and returns home to find both his wife and young son missing, apparently murdered. The police are sure of the perpetrator but have no solid evidence, as has been the case for as long as lifelong criminal Joseph Carey has had a handle on the city’s underworld.
Fast forward and Aidan, in a completely different guise is sitting at a beaten wooden table, opposite a man of similar wearing, lifting a gun to his temple, surrounded by a cheering horde in a desolate warehouse in a deadly game of Russian Roulette.
As each round of the deadly tournament triggers details from Aidan’s path to the current day, he serves justice befitting the crimes committed, making his way to the ultimate goal of Joseph Carey. In a race against time of being unmasked by his targets and prevented in his mission by the police, Aidan is adamant he won’t deviate from his undertaking, but all that could change as he learns of his son’s survival.

I am a 40 year old writer, with a four completed screenplays to my name, along with a half hour sitcom pilot. Always had an interest in writing and the hope of one day, somehow making that breakthrough and seeing one of my own on the big screen. (or any screen!) Having spent the past years banging my head against the closed doors of Production Companies and Agencies alike, I find myself here looking for a different way in. The closest I came to advancing a script was having it taken on for their future slate, only for that company to go into administration while working on their current project range. Currently going through a phase of reinvigoration, looking around once more for new... Go to bio
