EXT. IRAQI DESERT - DAY

SAM CALVIN, a rustically handsome and well armed American
Marine in his thirties dressed in full combat gear is in a
running gun battle with six enemy combatants. He stops and
crouches behind an outcropping of rocks. Gunfire racks off
toward Sam creating a storm of thirty bullets hitting all
around him.

He stands and fires his automatic rifle.

Sam hits two enemy and they go down. The remaining troops
instantly return fire.

Sam ducks.

Two more enemy begin to approach Sam from his flank.

Sam is caught by surprise. He jumps up and runs toward a deep
ravine as bullets hit the ground behind him. He jumps and
sails through the air landing with a thud on the other side.
He turns and fires at the two men.

They are hit and go down.

EXT. DOWNTOWN CATHOLIC CHURCH, LITTLE ROCK ARKANSAS - DAY

BOB CALVIN, an average conservative man in his early sixties
walks from the ornate church.

Two HARD LINE CRIMINALS in their twenties wearing overcoats
are hanging around the front of the big church. The men act
suspicious as they discreetly check out different people who
are leaving the building.

Bob notices the criminals and slows down to watch them for a
moment.

An elderly friendly priest moves through the front door
smiling.

Abruptly the two men come out from under their overcoats with
ball bats and attack the priest. He falls down as the thieves
beat him.
                                                            2.


The two men drop their bats and take a bank deposit bag the
priest is caring and start to run.

Bob quickly picks up a bat and swats the closest criminal
missing his head and hitting him on the neck. The other
criminal hurriedly turns and stabs Bob in the stomach and
both of them run.

A foot patrol policeman sees them and gives chase. He speaks
on his police radio as he runs.

                    FOOT PATROL POLICEMAN
          This is patrol thirty-six. In
          pursuit of two robbery and assault
          suspects. Need back-up at Saint
          Patrick’s Cathedral moving West.

The criminals run down a trash strewn alley and up a fire
escape.

The Priest dials his cellphone and kneels over Bob. Bob looks
at the priest and pulls him closer.

                    ELDERLY PRIEST
          Hang on Bob, I called nine-one-one.

                    BOB
          Father, find my son.

                    ELDERLY PRIEST
          I will Bob. I will. I know who to
          call.

Bob closes his eyes.


EXT. TOP OF DOWNTOWN THREE STORY CITY BUILDING - DAY

One of the criminals runs hard across the top of the flat top
three story brick building. Sirens are heard.

He jumps from the edge of the building to the next high-rise
roof.


EXT. CITY STREET - DAY

A ready policeman in the alley below has his gun raised to
shoot, but is unable to fire due to the glare from the
sunlight in his eyes.

POLICEMAN P.O.V.
                                                            3.


While still aiming his service revolver he sees the original
policeman jump and sail across the air space above him
pursuing the criminal.


EXT. TOP OF DOWNTOWN THREE STORY CITY BUILDING - DAY

The thug continues to run across the flat roof.

The pursuing policeman stops and pulls his weapon ready to
fire.

Suddenly, SHEILA ARMSTRONG, a pretty tattooed woman in her
twenties and the second criminal pops out from behind an air
conditioning unit and shoots.

The policeman falls severely wounded.

The two thugs and Sheila high-five and walk away.

AERIAL SHOT - On the dirty street below three more police
cars are racing to the scene.

EXT. IRAQI DESERT - DAY

Sam is aiming his rifle intently from cover at the enemy
before him. He fires his weapon.

The shot hits an enemy combatant and he goes down. Sam keeps
shooting at a second enemy as the man dives for cover.

The enemy jumps across a ravine and continue shooting at Sam
when he lands.

Sam gets up and shoots.

The enemy immediately fires back.

Sam is hit two times in the chest. He is knocked to the
ground and loses his weapon.

Sam blinks and tries to regain his senses. He takes off his
helmet to get a little more air. Sam checks himself and the
flack jacket has saved his life.

Suddenly Sam’s enemy is near.

Sam gets to his feet looking into the enemies ready gun
barrel.

The man smiles and pulls the trigger on his rifle. It Clicks.

Sam pulls out his razor sharp black survival knife. The enemy
pulls out his own knife and they charge each other.

The man dodges and Sam cuts his face as they pass.

They square off again and Sam slashes. He misses. The man
connects with Sam and cuts his arm.

Sam and his enemy become more aggressive. They slam into each
other in mortal combat.

The two men hold onto each other for a moment. The man push
Sam’s face back with his bloody hand attempting to get loose.
He is too weak to do it. They weakly back away and Sam has
his enemies knife sticking from his side. His wound is
bleeding badly.
                                                              5.


The enemy stares strangely at Sam. He has Sam’s knife
sticking from his chest. They both slowly fall to the ground
passed out.

A squad of heavily armed American soldiers on patrol comes
over a nearby hill. A YOUNG SERGEANT, that is leading the
squad is way out front.

He sees Sam and yells out.

                       YOUNG SERGEANT
             Over here. He’s one of ours.

The sergeant kneels by Sam.

                       YOUNG SERGEANT (CONT’D)
             Hang on buddy.
                 (yells out)
             He’s alive.

Sam face is bloody and stressed. He rolls his eyes toward the
enemy.

The young Sergeant looks at him compassionately and wipes the
blood from his face then pulls out his nine millimeter and
shoots the enemy.

                       YOUNG SERGEANT (CONT’D)
             The turban is dead.
                 (looks back at Sam)
             I got ya covered, helps on the way.

Sam closes his eyes slowly.

they pass her window.

                    DIANA
          I don’t know about this place.
          These are rough looking people.

                    SAM
          It’ll be okay. They’re just poor.

             Don’t worry baby, you’re strong,
             you can handle it.

Suddenly Sam slams on the brakes.

Sam P.O.V.

A street thug strolls across in front of him looking inside
the car with a sneer.

BACK TO SCENE

Sam is stressed. He just looks at the man. Diana puts her
hand on his arm.

                       DIANA
             You don’t need to fight anymore.
             It’s all right.

Sam stares at the thug.

                       SAM
             Okay.

Diana appearing relieved.

Sam drives on and stops the car in the driveway of a small
white house.

             Is this it?

                       SAM
             Yeah, home sweet home.


EXT. NEIGHBORHOOD - DAY

They get out looking around the area dressed in very simple
inexpensive clothes.

                       SAM
             Yard looks good.

Diana nods as she looks around.

SAM P.O.V.

Two thugs sit on kitchen chairs on their run down front porch

Diana is concerned and cuts a look at the thugs while she
speaks to Sam as they walk.

                    DIANA
          Do they live over there?

                    SAM
          The lawyer said they’re the
          neighborhood preacher’s sons.

                    DIANA
          Well, I feel safer now.

                    SAM
          Don’t worry.

Sam and Diana continue to walk toward the front door of the
house.

                    DIANA
          Nothing will happen. The bad things
          are behind us right.

Sam glances back.

He sees the thugs down the street looking his way.


INT. SAM’S HOUSE - DAY

Sam and Diana move inside looking around at the furnished
house that appears to be lived in.

                    DIANA
          It’s kinda all right.

                    SAM
          I’m thinking the same thing.

A well dressed professional woman in her forties walks from
the kitchen.

                    ATTORNEY DEKALB
          Hello, you must be Sam.

                    SAM

She shakes his hand. Dekalb turns to Diana
                                                        9.


                    ATTORNEY DEKALB

                    ATTORNEY DEKALB
          I got all of the papers ready. I’m
          so sorry about your father, Sam.

                    SAM
          Thank you, but I never knew him.

                    ATTORNEY DEKALB
          I’m sorry. Father O’Connor ask my
          office to find you after your
          father passed. We had know details.

                    SAM
          It’s okay. I hear he was a nice
          guy.

                    ATTORNEY DEKALB
          Yes that’s right. His name was Bob.
          Bob was killed protecting a Father
          O’Connor downtown. He was also a
          genuine war hero.

                    SAM
          Yeah, my uncle said he had more
          medals than a pawn shop.

The attorney opens a thick file and gives Sam a pen.

                    ATTORNEY DEKALB
          I’ll miss him. He was a client.
          Well, as they say, sign on the
          dotted line and the properties all
          yours.

Sam signs the document and smiles at his wife. She signs.

                      SAM
          What now?

                    ATTORNEY DEKALB
          My office will mail the papers
          after they are filed at the court
          house.

          Thank you for all of your trouble.
                                                       10.

          Yes, thank you... say do you know
          if this place is safe?

DeKalb looks out the front window then back at Sam and Diana.

                    ATTORNEY DEKALB
          Your father never said anything,
          but the neighborhood does look a
          little rough.

                    SAM
          We’ll be okay.

                    ATTORNEY DEKALB
          If you need a realtor to help sell
          it. I’ll be glad to refer you.

                    DIANA
          No, we lost our home in the
          recession. We’ll make the best of
          it.

                    ATTORNEY DEKALB
          Good for you. I almost forgot. Let
          me show you one of your most
          valuable possessions.

She goes to a coat closet near the front door and opens it.
The attorney opens another door that is hidden inside the
closet.


INT. GUN CLOSET - DAY

It opens to a narrow and long gun closet.

Inside the closet are rifles, shotguns, pistols, grenades,
ammunition and knives.

Attorney Dekalb looks at Sam and Diana.

                    ATTORNEY DEKALB
          There it is, probably enough
          weapons in there to sell and get a
          real good new start.

                    SAM
          Unbelievable.

                    ATTORNEY DEKALB
          They are all yours. Your dad was a
          big collector.
                                                         11.


                    DIANA
          Pretty ingenious little closet.

Dekalb turns back to the counter top and puts the papers in
her brief case and hands Sam a set of keys then starts
walking out.

                    ATTORNEY DEKALB
          Good luck too both of you. I’m sure
          you’ll do fine.

Sam and Diana follow.


EXT. SAM’S HOUSE - DAY

Attorney DeKalb, Sam and Diana walk outside on the front
porch.

A slow moving low-rider car cruises by and the thugs inside
watch the attorney, Sam and Diana.

                    DIANA
          Welcome wagon.

                    SAM
          Funny.

                    DIANA
          Don’t worry Sam. The fighting’s
          over.

Sam watches them as they pass.

He see the thugs down the street scatter.

The attorney goes to her car on the street and gets in
looking out at Sam.

                    ATTORNEY DEKALB
          If you need anything call me.

Sam and Diana smile and wave as Attorney DeKalb drives away.
They walk back in the yard.

                    SAM
          We’ve got a home again.

Sam looks around the street is deserted and quiet.

Diana smiles.

                    DIANA
          And a new start.
                                                        12.


                    SAM
          No payments.

They smile at each other.

An older car speeds around the corner with another sedan
behind it. The men inside are steadily shooting at each other
with automatic weapons.

A neighbor that is standing in the yard next to Sam’s house
dives for cover.

The lead car’s back tires are hit by gunfire and it runs up
into the neighbors yard and wrecks.

Sam and Diana dive for cover.

The second car slides to a stop and is still shooting at the
disabled car. People in the disabled car shoot back.

Sam looks up watching every move that is made.

A shooter with a shotgun walks steadily toward the four men
in the disabled car.

He shoots and hits two as he walks.

The shooter walks around the disabled car shooting and
pumping his short barrelled shotgun until the remaining two
men are dead.

Sam goes in his back pocket and comes out with a tactical
Stiletto knife. He pushes the button and the two edged blade
clicks abruptly open. Sam holds it to his side tactical style
watching.

The bold shooter glances at him and gets back in the second
car then they drive away.

Sam takes a close look.

He sees the vehicle and license as it speeds away.

Sam turns to Diana and puts the knife away. She is bleeding
from a bullet wound in the neck.

                    SAM (CONT’D)
          Oh God, baby.

She looks at him, but can’t speak.

He gathers her up and puts Diana in their sedan then speeds
away.

             Hang on baby. We’re on the way to
             the hospital.

Sam slides into a small service station and rolls his window
down.

SAM P.O.V.

Three people are pumping gas.

BACK TO SCENE

Sam looks at the people.

                       SAM (CONT’D)
             Where’s the hospital?
                 (everyone ignores him)
             Where the hell is the hospital.

An old gentleman is walking from the store. He looks in the
car at Sam.

                       ELDERLY GENTLEMAN
             Four blocks that way,
                 (points)

puts Diana on the gurney. A doctor quickly moves up and takes
her pulse then looks at her eyes.

                    Doctor
          Crash cart now.

The nurse runs for a cart.

                    SAM
          Please save her Doc.

The doctor nods and continues to attend Diana. Another nurse
has arrived and pushes the gurney toward the operating room.
Pamela follows with a crash cart.

                    PAMELA
          We’ll take good care of her.

                    DOCTOR
          Check her type, let’s get some
          blood going.

The doctor and the other nurse wheel Diana into a surgical
suite.

                    PAMELA
          Wait over there please.
              (points to a waiting area)
          I’ll be out and let you know
          something as soon as I can.

                    SAM
          Take care of her.

Sam appears worried.

                    PAMELA
          Don’t worry.

Pamela rushes into the suite with the cart.

Sam sits down worried and thinking.

DETECTIVE DAVID CLARK, A thirties police detective comes in.
He walks to Sam.

                    DETECTIVE CLARK
          Sir, is that your wife in surgery.
                                                     15.


                    SAM
          Yes.

                    DETECTIVE CLARK
          I’m Detective Clark. Could you tell
          me your name and your wife’s name
          please.

                    SAM
          Yes, my name is Sam Calvin and Her
          name is Diana.

                    DETECTIVE CLARK
          What happened?

                    SAM
          I inherited a house from my dad,
          over on West Twentieth Street and
          his attorney met us there to give
          us the papers.

                    DETECTIVE CLARK
          Did they come in your house or was
          it a drive by.

                    SAM
          When we left two cars were speeding
          down the street shooting at each
          other. I guess you’d call it a
          drive by.

                    DETECTIVE CLARK
          Did you get a look at them?

                    SAM
          No, we dropped to the ground. When
          it was over I looked at Diana and
          she had been shot. So I rushed her
          here.

                    DETECTIVE CLARK
          Did you see anything that might be
          important? Something to help us
          identify them.

                    SAM
          No everything happened so fast.

                    DETECTIVE CLARK
          Thank you Mr. Calvin. Your
          neighbor, the preacher got a good
          look. I’m going over to see him.

The detective stands to leave. The doctor returns.
                                                          16.


                    DETECTIVE CLARK (CONT’D)
          I’ll be in touch.

Sam nods and looks at the doctor.

                    DOCTOR
          I’m sorry, sir. She didn’t make it.

Sam puts his face in his hands. The detective puts his hand
on Sam’s back.

                    DETECTIVE CLARK
          I’m sorry, Mr. Calvin.

                    DOCTOR
          If you need anything just let us
          know.

Sam nods as the doctor and the detective leave.

Pamela steps beside Sam.

                    PAMELA
          Is there anything I can do, Mr.
          Calvin?

                    SAM
          No,thank you.

Sam looks up at her.

                    PAMELA
          I understand how you feel. I lost
          my husband at a convenience store
          robbery. You know the worst part
          is, the man that shot him only went
          to prison for two years.

                    SAM
          I sorry. The bastard that killed
          Diana will get more than prison.

Pamela hands him a business card.

                    PAMELA
          This is the address to a recovery
          group I’m in, come by, it will
          help.

She smiles and walks away. Sam hangs his head again.

EXT. MOUNT HOLLEY CITY CEMETARY - AFTERNOON

A middle-aged priest and Sam are grave side with Diana’s
coffin ready to be lowered into the ground.

                    PRIEST
          Ash to ashes and dust to dust...

Sam looks at the priest.

                    SAM
          That’s enough father. I’d like to
          be alone now.

The priest nods. He quietly folds his bible and speaks as he
leaves.

                    PRIEST
          I’ll pray for you Sam.

Sam flips a lever on the lowering device beside the coffin
and it slowly goes down into the grave. He does the sign of
the cross.

                    SAM
          Baby, I’m so sorry this happened to
          you. Rest easy, I promise... every
          evil bastard that ever took a
          breath on this planet will pay for
          this.

Sam stands. He has tears in his eyes as he looks into the
open grave.

Detective Clark walks up.

                    DETECTIVE CLARK
          I’m sorry I’m late. I just wanted
          to pay my respects.

                    SAM

Sam walks away.

                    DETECTIVE CLARK

          It’s been six months since you lost
          your wife Sam, are you still
          suppressing your emotions?

                    SAM
          If I don’t doctor, bad things could
          happen.

                    DOCTOR POST
          I’m sorry about what happened to
          you. I’ll give you a prescription,
          it’ll help.

She writes him a prescription.

Sam takes it.

          Thanks Doc.

                    DOCTOR POST

Sam moves on down the sidewalk.

Carl, a disabled veteran walks up with crutches.

                    CARL
          Hey, Sam buddy.

                    SAM
          Carl, I heard you had been wounded,
          glad to see you’re doing better.

                    CARL
          How’s Diana?

Sam suddenly appears sad and depressed.

                    SAM
          She was killed Carl. A street thug
          killed her.

                    CARL
          I’m sorry man. I didn’t know.

Sam is walking in the front door. He stops and looks down the
well lit street.

Three street people are drinking from bottles wrapped in
brown paper bags and talking loud as they generally make a
nuisance of themselves.

Sam smiles and point at them as if he is cocking a gun and
then goes inside.


INT. MEETING ROOM ON THE FIRST FLOOR - NIGHT

Sam walks in looking around the room then takes a seat among
four other people.

EDITH STEIN, a conservatively dressed attractive woman
instructor in her late forties stands in front of the room

Pamela walks in smiling. She sits by Sam.

            Good to see you here.

Sam nods.

Edith looks around the room.

                    PAMELA
          Yes, I lost my husband two years
          ago. He was shot at a convenience
          store robbery and I’m still angry
          about it. The man that shot him
          gets out of prison in a few days.
          I’m afraid he’ll come after me,
          because my testimony put him in
          prison.

Sam jams a syringe in Everett’s neck. Everett lurches back
and Sam slams his arm against Everett’s neck holding him in
place against the car window. He pushes until the syringe is
empty.

He and Everett struggle for a moment and Everett dies with
his eyes bugging out.

Sam opens the passenger door and shoves Everett out. Sam then
throws out a bottle of liquid Drano.

Just a fee steps inside the alley, two men, REGGIE and
JIMMIE, in their twenties step in behind Sam.
                                                          26.


                    REGGIE
          Hey man, you got a light.

Sam turns toward them cheerfully.

                    SAM
          Don’t smoke, it’ll kill ya.

                    JIMMIE
          Don’t worry bout that dude. Give us
          your money.

                    SAM
          Fresh out dude.

Reggie pulls a sharp knife out.

                    JIMMIE
          Maybe I can sharpen your memory.

                    SAM
          What a dull wit.

                    JIMMIE
          I’m gonna cut you man.

Sam appears pleased. He reaches in his back pocket and pulls
out a bigger Gerber folding knife and snap it open.

                      SAM
          Me first.

Jimmie pulls out a nine millimeter automatic. Sam abruptly
moves forward and cuts deep across Jimmie’s gun hand before
he can raise it.

Jimmie drops his gun and holds his injured hand. Reggie
lunges for Sam as Sam cuts Jimmie’s face deep from his
forehead down across his nose and cheek.

Sam slams Reggie back with his palm and holds his black
bladed knife in a professional manner watching for an
opening.

He moves in and expertly sticks the blade deep into Reggie’s
neck down through the top of his chest cavity and quickly
pulls it out ready for the next attack.

Reggie falls to the ground dying as blood gushes from his
wound.

Sam turns to Jimmie, who is recovering.
                                                        27.


                    JIMMIE
          Hey man, you done killed my
          cousin.

Sam glares at the desperate Jimmie.

                    SAM
          And?

                    JIMMIE
          You’re right man. Reggie was an ass
          hole. We can just let it go. Walk
          away.

                    SAM
          No. I want to settle this.

                    JIMMIE
          It’s over dude, case settled.

Jimmie looks at him waiting for a move from Sam. He nurses
his hand then his face that is bleeding badly.

The man that followed Sam shots at him from behind a
dumpster.

The bullet misses Sam and hits near Jimmie.

Sam drops his knife and comes out from behind his back with
an automatic and shoots the intruder.

The intruder is hit in the eye. He stumbles and falls to the
ground.

Sam turns and looks at Jimmie as Jimmie start to move on him.
Jimmie freezes.

Jimmie decides to run. Sam shoots him in the leg. Jimmie
drags his leg trying to get away.

                    JIMMIE (CONT’D)
          What’s with you man? Let it go.

Sam puts his gun away and picks-up his Knife. He walks toward
Jimmy.

Jimmy is still struggling to get away. Sam grabs him from
behind and cuts his throat then throws him to the ground.

Sam looks at Reggie and Jimmie for a moment then searches
their dying bodies. He takes what money and jewelry they have
then the weapons.
                                                        28.


Sam hesitates for a moment looking at Jimmie then takes two
large gold necklaces from around his neck. He goes to the man
that he shot earlier and takes his valuables.

                    SAM
          Thanks ass hole.

Sam looks at two big gold necklaces he took from around
Jimmie’s neck and smiles. He puts them on and then he puts on
a couple of diamond rings and admires them.

He looks at a set of car keys that he found on Reggie then
casually walks down the alley looking at them pushing the key
fob button.

A police car speeds down the street and turns into the narrow
alley as Sam walks out of sight on the other end. The car
slides up to the bodies. The two policemen in the car jump
out with weapons drawn their eyes searching the area. One of
the policemen call in on his radio.


EXT. CITY STREET - MORNING

Sam tries the key fob again to unlock a Lincoln Continental
that he is standing by. It doesn’t work.

He walks down a few cars and tries another car and they don’t
work. Sam walks on and tries another almost new Lincoln. The
keys work and he smiles.

Sam gets inside leaving the door open with one leg on the
ground.

OUTSIDE TO INSIDE - He puts the keys in the ignition and
turns it on. Sam tunes the radio on. Hip-hop music is heard.
He push a button to change the channel. A Rolling Stone’s
song comes on. Sam smiles. He takes his gun from his back and
lies it on the seat.

BACK TO SCENE

A ROBUST MAN in his thirties walks up.

                    ROBUST MAN
          Hey, what you doing in Reggie’s
          car.

Sam looks up. He says nothing and takes the gun from the seat
and shoots the man.

                    SAM
          Mind your own business dumb ass.
                                                         29.


Sam closes the car door and drives away. He hears sirens.

Sam drives into the cemetery to Diana’s grave side. He gets
out of the car and walks to her fresh grave. Sam kneels.

                    SAM
          I love ya baby. Rest easy, I’m
          taking care of business. When I’m
          finished, people will feel safe
          again.

He bows his head to pray.

EXT. NEIGHBORHOOD STREET - DAY

Sam drive his new car slowly down the dirty street looking at
every movement.

He sees the shooter’s car that shot Diana.

Sam slows down and rolls past looking.

A BIG MAN walks near the shooter’s car.

                    BIG MAN
          What you lookin at bitch?

Sam stops and backs up.

The big man rudely walks over and looks in the car Sam rolls
the window down. Sam shoots him in the face with his forty-
five and he falls back sprawled out on the sidewalk.

Sam gets out of the car with a shotgun in his hand AND HIS
automatic in his belt. He pumps a shell in the chamber
watching the area.

Diana’s shooter comes out of the house.

                    DIANA’S SHOOTER
          Pee Wee... what the hell.

He sees Sam coming at him and pulls out his automatic.

Sam starts shooting his shotgun.
                                                          30.


Sam hits the shooter in the stomach. The shooter drops his
weapon and falls against the yard fence bleeding with his
eyes still open, but to weak to do anything.

Sam looks closer at him.

                    SAM
          I know that hurts.

Sam readies his shotgun.

A woman comes out yielding a nine millimeter.

                    WOMAN
          You shot my Pee Wee.

She starts to draw down on Sam.

Sam shoots her with his shotgun blowing her against the front
porch.

Sam shoots the man he thinks shot Diana.

Another man runs out of the house and Sam shoots him as he
fires his weapon missing Sam. The man falls over the front
fence dead.

Sam jacks a shell in his shotgun looking around the
neighborhood. He fires a shot in the air as he moves toward
his car.

                    SAM
          You’re on notice. If any son-of-a
          bitch commit any crime, down to
          shoplifting,
              (shoots again)
          I will shoot you... dead.

Sam walks to his car, gets in and drives away.

A rough looking man looks out the window from behind a
curtain.

EXT. CITY INTERSECTION - AFTERNOON

Sam stops at a light still in the neighborhood a Cadillac
pulls up and stops beside him.

Sheila Armstrong, is sitting between the driver and POGO, a
local thug in his twenties. Pogo looks over at Sam.
                                                         31.


                    POGO
          Hey man, where’d you get Reggie’s
          car.

Sam looks at him and rolls the power window down. Sam smiles.

                    SAM
          It’s a loaner.

Sheila looks at Pogo.

                    SHEILA
          That’s some lyin shit.

Pogo starts to get out of his Cadillac.

Sam comes out with Reggie’s nine millimeter.

He shoots Pogo in the throat. He then shoots at Sheila. She
ducks as two shots hit the dash of the car next to her.

Sam shots again.

He hits the driver in the head as he tries to pull his
automatic.

Sheila opens the drivers door and lets the driver fall out as
Sam shoots at her two more times.

Sheila shoots back. She scrabbles out of car then across the
street and around the corner of a building.

Sam coolly gets out of the car and takes the men’s valuables
while Pogo gurgles from his wound. Sam tosses the weapons
into Reggie’s car.

                    SAM
          You won’t need this stuff where
          you’re going.

Sam Looks up.

He sees Sheila getting ready to take a shot at him.

Sam quickly shoots at her. Bricks splinter from the corner of
the building where she is and Sheila draws back.

A few people cautiously pass by in the background afraid to
look.

Sam glances at them. He gets back to his car and drives
forward. He stops and backs up looking at Pogo for moment. He
shots him and drives on.
                                                        32.


A police cruiser turns the corner and sees Sam driving away.
They spin around in the middle of the narrow street and go
after him.

Sam speeds up. The police and Sam cut through the traffic,
finally the police move beside him. Sam slams Reggie’s car
into the cruiser and runs them off the road.

They slam into a parked car as Sam speeds on.


EXT. CITY PARK - DUSK

Sam drives Reggie’s car deep into the thick woods and stops.
He wipes the interior of the car down then gets out and opens
the deck lid.

Sam looks in at all of the weapons and ammo. He goes through
the inventory in the trunk while throwing guns and knives
out in the brush and filling two bags with pistols and
bullets then walks away.

He moves through the woods a short distance and comes out
next to a parking lot.


EXT. PARKING LOT - DUSK

Sam walks across the lot.

Five thugs are talking leaned against a nice black Lexus. Sam
passes nearby.

                     MAN
          Hey man.

                     SAM
          Hey.

                    MAN
          You need somethin, a little weed or
          maybe a little more punch.

                    SAM
          No thanks, but I got something you.

Sam smiles and stops. He sets his bags down.

The thugs begin to pay attention looking at Sam.

Sam pulls his gun out from his belt and starts shooting.

                    MAN
          Shoot his ass.
                                                          33.


The five men go for their guns but Sam is too fast for the
first three and they drop to the ground.

The next two start shooting. Sam shoots them.

The two men drop to the ground.

Sam sees blood drip on his shirt. He feels his ear. A bullet
has shot away a piece of his ear. Sam pulls out a
handkerchief and holds it to his ear as he walks to the car.
Sam looks around and then at the bodies.

                    SAM
          You bad asses are in the wrong line
          of work.

A man lies on the ground near the back of the car still
alive. Sam looks down at him.

                    SAM (CONT’D)
          Where’s the keys?

The man just stares at him.

                     MAN
          Fu...

                    SAM
          Fu... what kind of an answer is
          that?

Sam shoots him.

                    SAM (CONT’D)
          Thanks, I’ll figure it out.

He checks the bodies and takes their cash and valuables. Sam
finds the keys on the dead man nearest him and a huge roll of
cash. Sam looks closer at the money.

                    SAM (CONT’D)
          Drug dealer and business is good.

Sam opens the trunk then goes back to the bodies and takes
their weapons and valuables. He puts the weapons in the trunk
and then their assets along with his two bags. He puts the
folding money in his pocket and then drives away in the
Lexus.


INT. LEXUS - NIGHT

Sam drives the car nursing his ear. He takes out a cell phone
and punches in a set of numbers.

Argus sees a rough looking shoplifter take a watch from the
counter and start to walk out.

          Excuse me. Hey hold up.

Sam watches Argus.

The man turns and hits Argus in the face as he approaches
making his nose bleed.

Sam is suddenly next to Argus. He punches the thief in the
throat. The shoplifter is bent over coughing holding his
throat. Sam hits him in the side of the head and watches him
fall to the floor across a rack of shirts. A second man comes
out of no where and hits Sam. Sam falls back and recovers. He
grabs the man’s hand and arm flipping him to the floor with a
thud and breaks the thugs wrist.

Sam takes out a nice suit from its bag and holes it up to
look at it. He hangs it on the back of a chair then takes his
coat off.

He takes out a GQ Magazine from a bag and opens it to a page
that has a picture of a well dressed male model wearing an
overcoat. He lies the magazine on the coffee table open to

          Good morning, it’s talk radio with

          A Police spokes person says
          detectives are searching for the
          child, but fear the worst. There is
          a warrant out for the mother and
          the molester. They that are still
          on the loose...

overcoat over his new one. Sam grabs a dirty looking cap and
puts it on. He looks around the room and walks out.

Sam walks on.

Sam sees a few street people gathered around a mission
waiting to be fed.

Sam walks to them and move next to BURT, a nervous homeless
man in his mid-forties. Sam gets closer to Burt and whispers
in his ear.

                    SAM
          A little bird told me you know
          where Chester Leans is.

                    BURT
          I don’t know nothin.

Sam discreetly clicks open his stiletto and pushes the blade
against the bums ribs.

                    SAM
          I feel like talking, tell me more
          about Chester the molester.

He pressed the knife harder.

A speck of blood shows through Burt’s shirt around the tip of
the blade.

Sam gets in his face.

                    SAM (CONT’D)
          If you protect him, no one will be
          able to protect you.

                    BURT

          back of an old warehouse on Seventh
          Street.

                       BURT
             I ain’t lyin man.

Sam puts his knife away.

COODY, another street person steps into Sam and confronts him
shaking his finger in Sam’s face.

                       COODY
             Leave Burt alone, before I kick you
             ass.

             I’m offended big mouth. I think
             I’ll kick your ass.

Sam grabs his fingers on one hand and quickly bends them back
breaking all of them. The man screams in pain. Sam looks at
Burt.

                       BURT
             I’m good. I don’t need nothin.

Sam walks away leaving Coody holding his hand squealing in
pain.

window.

with a two by four and falls forward against the wall.

                    CHESTER
          Looking for someone.

CHESTER LEANER, a big man in his late twenties stands over
him. Sam looks closer and a second image becomes clear. THEO
MANSON, a man in his thirties is looking down at him.

                     SAM
          You must be Chester the molester.
          Who’s your friend? The molester’s
          assistant.

                    CHESTER
          Don’t call me that.

He hits Sam again with the board as he gets up then Theo hits
him with his fist. Sam grabs Chester and they slam into the
wall. Theo yells out in glee. Sam hits Theo and he falls
back.

Sam side kicks Chester and punches him. He then kicks Theo as
Theo approaches him. Theo hits Sam.

Chester grabs Sam and begins to strangle him from behind and
Theo hits him in the stomach. Sam struggles to survive and
elbows Chester over and over to no avail.

Sam goes into his back pocket as Theo hits him in the
stomach.

Chester’s eyes get big and he stops. Sam pulls away and hits
Theo.

Chester has Sam’s knife in his ribs. He just stares at Sam.
Sam kicks him into the wall and the man falls back then
forward. Theo attacks Sam.
                                                        45.


In the struggle Sam takes his big knife out of Chester’s side
and sticks it in Theo’s chest as he approaches then pulls it
out.

Theo rolls his eyes and falls to the floor. Sam wipes his
blade on Theo’s shirt.

Theo weakly looks up at Sam.

                      THEO
            Who are you?

                         SAM

                      SAM
            For the little girl, you low life.
            Where’s the mother.

Theo is dying. He can’t speak.

Chester weakly speaks up.

                      CHESTER
            If you’ll kill the bitch I’ll tell
            you.

                      SAM
            That’s a promise.

                      CHESTER
            She’s hidin out at a crack house on
            Third Street, on the corner of
            Third and Naples. Cut her heart
            out.

Sam nods.

                         SAM
            You first.

Sam takes his automatic out from behind his back and points
it at Chester.

Chester’s eyes get big.

Sam Shoots him two times.

Chester dies.
                                                         46.


Sam hears a whimper. He goes on guard and looks through the
open office door.

He sees the little girl crying lying on the floor.

Sam goes to her.

Sam is walking down the sidewalk toward an old run down house
with his head down. He has on his trademark sweat shirt with
the hood up.

Sam comes to the house and slowly walks inside.

A few helpless looking drug attics sit around the dirty
walls.

He looks at them for a moment.

                    SAM
          Which one of you is Linda Creel.

A drugged out crack head woman points to LINDA CREEL, a
skinny pale looking person in her late twenties cowering in a
corner.

Sam kneels next to her and whispers.

                    SAM
          No, I came to tell you, your baby
          is safe. You are not.

Linda starts to cry.

                    LINDA
          I love her.

                    SAM
          Not enough.

Sam takes out a large vile of Cocaine. He gives it to Linda.
Linda snorts it all and rubs the dust on her gums.

                    LINDA
          Who are you?

                       SAM

Sam cuts his eyes toward the addict.

The addict quickly looks away.

Sam takes out a syringe already loaded. Linda extends her arm
and shots herself up. Sam bends the needle and throws it
away.

Linda lies back and goes into spasms.

Sam looks at her for a moment and starts walking out.

EXT. CITY STREET

Sam casually walks down the street just relaxing and looking
around. A bum comes up to him.

                    BUM
          Hey man, you got a dollar so I can
          get somethin to eat.

Sam looks at him for a second. He suddenly grabs the bum by
the coat and drags him into the alley.

                    BUM (CONT’D)
          I’m sorry man. I don’t want a
          dollar. Just fifty cents.

The bum gasp. Sam hits him again.

                    BUM
          All right man. He’s got a place in
          an old store over on nineth, Nash
          and nineth. You didn’t get from me.

Sam let’s go of the gasping bum. He drops to the ground with
a thud.

          nuts off and feed’em to the birds.

Sam walks away. He stops and turns.

The bum is frightened as he gets up and draws back.

Sam drops a twenty on the ground.

The dealer falls to the ground. Sam searches his body and

          I’m sorry that justice has been
          sloppy for you. But, what do I have
          to do with that?

                    DETECTIVE CLARK
          It’s time to stop and get
          uninvolved. The people at the top
          want it all slowed down?

                    SAM

Detective Clark gets in his car and drives away. Sam watches

          Hey, I kno...

Out of reflex Sam grabs his automatic and shoots him
immediately.

The man looks up at Sam dying.

                    STREET THUG (CONT’D)
          This is Moe’s car.

behind a large bush.

back seat. He checks it to be sure it is loaded. Sam takes
several magnum shells from a box sitting in the front seat
and puts them in his pockets.

across the vacant lot and goes to the back door. He knocks.

          I don’t like criminals.

Aldo comes up shooting.

hears a man groan. Sam takes out his automatic. He shoots the
man then puts his weapon away.

table that sits against the wall with a heavy safe sitting at
the end of it.

          What the hell you doing?

                    SAM
          This place reminds me of the old
          west.

                    TWEETER
          Yeah, why is that.

                    SAM
          Because we’re about to have a shoot
          out.

Sam pushes the package toward him.

                    SAM
          You don’t need it. Take this to the

          Don’t worry about that. Buy
          yourself a toy on the way home and
          give the rest to your mom.

Sam gets to his feet and runs across a sidewalk and down the
side of a house.

Sheila and her thugs jump out of the car and chase him.


EXT. NEIGHBORHOOD

Sam runs through another yard past barking dogs and jumps a
privacy fence.

He runs across a junked up vacant lot and cuts through
another yard.

Sam bumps into an elderly man that is gardening. He stumbles
and abruptly Sheila’s thugs are on him. They Beat Sam
completely down to the ground. Sheila shows up.

                    SHEILA
          Hey... hey, no more. Take him to
          the car.
                                                         66.


The men drag Sam away.

The old man gets up.

                    OLD MAN
          You can’t do that.

Shiela walks away.

                    SHEILA
          Shut-up old man you could be next.

INT. OLD STORE -DAY

Sheila’s two thugs drag Sam through the back door with Sheila
following while Benny and two henchmen watch.

The henchmen slams Sam in an old oak chair and duct tapes him
to it.

Benny is watching closely as they do their work.

                    SHEILA
          There’s your boy.

Benny nods to one of his henchmen standing near him. The
henchman goes to the safe and starts counting money.

Benny looks at Sheila.

                    BENNY
          I’ll give you the money, but if
          this guy ain’t right you owe me.

Sheila takes the money from the henchman.

                    SHEILA
          He’s right.

Benny turns and goes to Sam. He slams a knife into the table
leaving it sticking straight up directly in front of him.
Benny leans forward staring into Sam’s eyes.

                    BENNY
          Where’s my brother’s money?

Sam just looks at him. Benny hits him with his fist as hard
as he can. Sam recovers, spits blood and stares at him.
                                                          67.


                    BENNY (CONT’D)
          In case you didn’t hear me. Where’s
          the money you stole from my
          brother.

Sam just looks at him. Benny hits him again.

Benny turns to a battery charger that is running. Benny
sparks the black and red claps together then smile.

                    BENNY (CONT’D)
          When I hook you up, you’ll talk.

                    SAM
          About the weather?

He snaps the charger clips on Sam’s hands. Sam convulses from
the contact. Sam stops and looks close at Sam.

                    BENNY
          Funny, where’s the money Mr. Comedy
          Central?

Sam just looks at him. Benny lies the clips down and hits
Sam.

One of Benny’s men is thrilled.

                    BENNY’S THUG
          Hit him again boss.

Sam spits more blood this time into Benny’s face.

Benny wipes his face and hits Sam again. Sam falls back on
the floor still taped to the chair.

                    BENNY
          I’ll kill you quick if you tell me
          where the money is.

One of the henchmen bends   over to set Sam up. Sam’s legs go
around the thugs neck and   snaps it. The other thug grabs at
Sam. Sam stands and slams   his body into the thug and then
into Sheila. Benny shoots   at Sam.

Sam dodges and slams into Benny. They hit the wall and the
chair breaks. He still has the oak chair arm taped to his
arm. He slams it across Benny face and then Sheila’s.

Benny recovers and shoots at Sam as the henchman grabs at
him. Sam pulls the thug in front of his body. Benny’s bullet
hits the thug and he drops to the floor.
                                                        68.


Sam grabs the knife from the table and rushes out the back
door.

Benny goes to the doorway and shoots at Sam.


EXT. OLD STORE - DAY

Sam runs across the vacant lot while Benny shots at him.

Sheila comes out the back and chases Sam on foot.


EXT. WOODED LOT BEHIND OLD STORE - DAY

Sam is rushing through the trees dodging the low hanging
limbs.

Sheila is close behind. She shoots at Sam.

Sam slides around a tree following the trail.

Sheila slides around the tree and suddenly a thick branch
slams into her face. She is stunned but manages to move on
down the trail.

Sheila stops to catch her breath. She shakes her head and
feels her face. It has a huge whelp across it and her top lip
is swollen. She regroups and quickly goes after Sam.

Sam comes to the edge of the lot and falls down a steep
embankment. When he gets to the bottom he stands and cuts the
tape loose from himself.

Sheila sees Sam and quickly moves down the hill right behind
him and knocks Sam down.

                    SHEILA
          I got your ass now.

Sheila stumbles over Sam and falls. They both roll down
another hill and finally stop rolling at the back of an old
ghetto house.

Sheila scrambles to get up and is standing over Sam with her
automatic ready to shoot.

                    SHEILA (CONT’D)
          Don’t think about running. You’re
          worth a hundred grand, dead or
          alive.

Sam sees a mean dog quietly approaching from the shadows.
                                                             69.


Suddenly the huge Pit Bull Dog with a large chain around his
neck growls and attacks her. She drops the gun and tries to
fight off the big dog.

Sam gets up, jumps the fence and moves down the alley. He
hears the dog snarling and Sheila screaming.

Bums are sitting next to a brick wall some have blankets

finally stop.

Sheila and her men get out. They go to a bum standing next to
a dumpster.

                       SHEILA

The bum points to a person sitting under a cardboard box.

SAM P.O.V.

Sam is looking at them through a hole in the box.

They turn and start shooting.

Sam jumps up and runs from a different box.

                        SHEILA (CONT’D)
             Get him.

He runs hard down the alley and turns a corner. Sheila and
the two thugs go after him.

They turn the corner running hard.

Suddenly they hit a wire and slam backward to the ground.
They look up and see a wire line stretched across the alley.
Two more thugs stop near them as they gasp for air.

Sam glances back and keeps going.

Benny is talking to Sheila and five henchmen.

                    BENNY
          It’s time to step up the heat.
          Sheila’s people have checked this
          guy out. Tell’em Shiela.

                    SHEILA
          His wife was killed in a drive by.
          He’s just out for revenge.

                    BENNY
          After she died, he went nuts and
          started shooting people. It so
          happened those people were our
          dealers and my brother.

                    SHEILA
          The cops aren’t gonna do anything.

                    BENNY
          You take that hundred grand you
          didn’t earn and put a bounty on his
          head. Tell the cops too.

Sheila gets up and leaves with three of her thugs.

                    SHEILA
          You got it boss.

Benny nods and turns to his men.

                    BENNY
          Things have changed. This guy’s on
          the run, but I’m guessin he’s just
          gettin ready to make a come back.

The men nod.

Sam is riding a Harley-Davidson Nightster. He stops at a four
way stop. A police car pulls in behind him.

SUB-TITLE APPEARS - ONE MONTH LATER

Sam is checking his rearview mirror.

SAM P.O.V. IN REARVIEW MIRROR

The policeman turns on his emergency lights and then lightly
bumps the siren.

Sam speeds away. The police car sets there for a moment and
then turns the siren on full blast. The car turns right and
speeds on.

Sam is down the street and slows down. He pulls to the curb.
From around the corner an unmarked police car stops partially
pulled crosswise in front of him.

Detective Clark gets out of his car.

                      DETECTIVE CLARK
            Hey Sam, How’s it going.

Sam nods.

                      SAM
            Where’s the rest of the Nazi’s?

Detective Clark turns off Sam’s Motorcycle.

                      DETECTIVE CLARK
            You know Staff Sergeant Samuel
            Calvin, I was thinking about you.

          Well, people in high places like
          what you are doing and they say, I

          So, what do you think I’m doing?

          You know Sam, as long as the powers
          like it, you’re safe. But the day
          they don’t, you’re not.

Detective Clark pulls Sam’s coat open casually checking him
out.

                    SAM
          If I were a smart detective like
          you, I’d just leave it alone.

Detective Clark smirks and pats him on the back.

                    DETECTIVE CLARK
          Yeah, that’s what the Chief said.

                    SAM

          I hear the local dealers hired
          Little Willard a pro to take care
          of the Super Predator.

          I hear the local dealers are not as
          bad ass as they think they are.

                    DETECTIVE CLARK
          This will end sometime Sam. I hope
          you’re smart enough to not be
          involved when it comes crashing
          down.

Clark starts walking away.

                    SAM
          Who knows what tomorrow will bring.

The detective gets back in his car. He takes a last look at
Sam and drives away.

Sam walks in and starts looking at the knives display and a
few other products. He continues browsing the store and comes
back to the knife case. The MIDDLE-AGED CLERK is standing
nearby.

                      SAM
            I’d like to look at that Gerber.

The clerk takes out a large slender hunting knife and hands
it to Sam.

                      CLERK
            Best blade on the planet.

Sam nods.

                       SAM
            Sure is.

LITTLE WILLARD, a small powerful looking man in his thirties
and one of Sheila’s thugs walks in looking at Sam.

Sam watches them from the corner of his eye.

The clerk freezes just watching discretely.

                      CLERK
            Are they here for you?

Sam nods.

                      SAM
            You should leave now.

Sam cups the knife in his hand with the blade against his
wrist like a professional ready for action.

                      CLERK
            Right, I never saw you. Kick their
            ass.
                                                       74.


The clerk heads for the back door.

The two men split up. Little Willard approaches Sam from the
front and the other from the back.

When they get close enough Sam turns on the thug coming from
the back and rushes him sticking the knife in his eye.

He screams out and grabs at the knife falling to the floor
dying.

Sam turns back to Little Willard poised to fight.

                    SAM
          You must be Little Willard. Word is
          you been looking for me.

                    LITTLE WILLARD
          That’s right. You’re in the big
          leagues now, time to pay the dues.

                    SAM
          Somebodies going to pay.

Little Willard chuckles.

                    LITTLE WILLARD
          In full brother.

Little Willard tries to pull his gun out. Sam quickly takes
an all metal golf club from its display rack next to him. He
slams it across the Willard’s head. Willard falls to the
floor dazed.

                    SAM
          Sorry buddy, Your karma has finally
          caught up with you. You been
          yanged, brother.

The bleeding and dazed Willard tries to get up.

                    LITTLE WILLARD
          What the hell is Yanged?

Sam slams the club into Willard’s head again.

                    SAM
          Similar to yinged.
              (looks closer)
          I know that hurt.

Sam takes a moment to clean the club and knife of finger
prints then leaves the store.

            Good advice.

                      DETECTIVE CLARK
            I think I’d move to another city,
            before someone puts him in prison.

                      SAM
            What if there is unfinished
