Recommended by Story Pros: “Great job! Good hard-boiled action. Excellent tension that ramps up very well. Reveals fall perfectly. Symbolically potent.”

Los Angeles Awards Reader’s says: “This script has high market potential. It includes features attractive to today’s audience: a flawed female protagonist beyond just a “strong” one in a historically men’s profession, an 80s rural backdrop, a character with a disability that does not hinder their life, etc.

Screencraft Reader’s says: “This is a well written thriller that keeps us at the edge of our seat. The thematic elements are weaved very well with the narrative. Ruth’s story reminds us of the moral dilemma of Rodion Raskolnikov from Crime and Punishment while at the same time throwing light on capitalism greed and how it is destroying societies.”
