STRINGS

An adapted screenplay


Genre: drama? thriller? horror? (you decide).
Rated: NC-17
Length: 130 pages
_____________________

Premise:

After four years of turning tricks in a mob-run New York brothel to pay off a debt, Nina is ready to go back to a quiet life in Iowa. Just one more client and the whole nightmare will be behind her. But this last trick turns into a battle for her soul.

Meanwhile, the brothel’s callous Madam has been hiding away money in order to move up in her family’s organization, and she only wants the half million dollars the reclusive billionaire pays for the girls. But her driver, Ramón, has other ideas, making off with the money left behind when Nina’s last trick goes unexpectedly awry.

The theft comes at a great cost to the Madam, setting off a horrific chain of events that changes the three of them.

The hooker. The driver. The Madam. All of them on a collision course to a place where only madness holds sway.

Dear members of the SS forums:

Strings is a passion project I worked on earlier this year. It's a fan adaptation of an obscure novel of the same title, by author Allison Dickson, who was kind enough to give me permission to take a shot at it. I think deep down, she knew Hollywood wouldn't touch this kind of genre bender with a 10 foot pole (we both knew it actually, but I decided to write it anyway, just for the hell of it  ).

I even designed my own poster, for shitz and giggles, with photos of actors I imagined would be suitable for the roles.

I hold no official rights to this 130-page beast. This endeavor is intended only as an exercise in adapting a novel. I will post it here, in fragments, so it can be dissected and critiqued. Feel free to do with it as you please.

At any rate, your feedback is most welcome.

J. Z.
