Synopsis/Details: 

Coral Bowe isn't your typical assassin. She's the only one in the world with the power to steal souls from the young which she sells to elderly elites so they can extend their lives and absorb the talents of the targets. She's cornered the market for years.

But after so long servicing the sick whims of the wealthy, Coral is done. One last big hit and she's over and out and able to retire with her son 10-year-old Marlon and blend into normality on an island community somewhere warm and exotic.

With a new target acquired and a hefty price tag agreed with her broker, Henry, she embarks on her final 'soul tapping' mission. But there's a snag. The target is not alone and heads home for an evening of romance with someone they picked up in a bar.

Later, in the darkness of the target's apartment, Coral unfurls from the shadows, eliminates the love interest and settles in to execute her primary objective.

After performing the soul tapping ritual, where she physically sucks the life out of her targets with the deadliest of kisses, something goes horribly wrong. Coral isn't the only one in the apartment with murder in mind.

The Writer: Mike Underwood

I have a passion for dark, twisting and twisted TV and film which gets the heart racing, the mind questioning and the soul begging for mercy! A little bit about me - armed with a journalism degree, I have been writing professionally since 1999 after becoming a reporter and spending 11 years neck-deep in covering crime and politics in England, Scotland and the United States. I spent two hair-raising years as a night shift city reporter on the Boston Herald in Massachusetts Since 2010, I have worked in the less treacherous world of PR & Communications, winning national awards for creative campaigns, media relations and team leadership for a range of public and private sector organisations...
