Early Birds

Early Birds
Some people just turn up at the wrong place, at the wrong time.

An armed man walks into a convenience store in the middle of the night. 

His name is Brad...and this is clearly his first rodeo. 

But while his masked face appears young and his voice a bit unsure, he's also not the sort of man you want to mess with, given his ability to end your life at any second.

That is, unless you're the store owner, Gregg. 

Gregg is the kind of stubborn old man who's even more hard headed with a pistol trained at him...And it's his fearless demeanor that ignites the conflict of this story.

At only 4 pages, Youvraj Rajwanshi's "Early Birds" cleverly reimagines the classic robbery scene. What at first seems like a clear cut power dynamic morphs into a cat and mouse game that is thrilling from beginning to end.

This is an ideal script for any filmmaker who wants to tackle gritty stories with a high dose of tension, on a minimal one-scene location budget.
