INT. - COMMUNITY TREATMENT CENTER - DAY KRISTEN MCBRIDE is being released from the clinic and is standing by the discharge station awaiting a final meeting with the CLINICIAN. Kristen is on crutches, dressed in loose fitting, disheveled, once stylish, worn out clothes. She is a pale, sick and frail shell of a fragile, beautiful, mature woman. The Clinician is a middle age man with a Texas accent and a no no-nonsense, tough love attitude. CLINICIAN (reads out from the paperwork) Kristen McBride, age forty-seven. Kristen steps up to the discharge station. CLINICIAN (CONT'D) We are recommending long term treatment for alcoholism and addiction. You had twelve years clean and sober time Kristen, and you can do it again, but you will have a tough time dealing with recovery from a such a severe relapse. You are disabled, with back injuries and diagnosed PTSD. You can no longer be dependent on narcotic meds, so we are referring you to pain management and sexual assault counselling. Your family is wealthy, maybe they can help you. KRISTEN (speaks softly with difficulty enunciating) My family is estranged. I am on my own. I have no medical insurance. I can't afford any treatment programs. CLINICIAN

2. CONTINUED: (2) (overly enunciating the word enunciate) ENUNCIATE. You must ENUNCIATE! It will take a long time to comeback from your overdose, and we can't be sure yet, how much damage was done. KRISTEN I'm a Northwestern University alumni. I can speak French fluently. Clinician hands her the release paperwork. CLINICIAN (sternly advising) When you overdosed, the hospital Baker Acted you here. Your blood alcohol level was over 400 points. FOUR HUNDRED IS DEAD!! You have some brain damage. You are not mentally capable of processing thoughts yet. Don't make any major changes or get into a relationship during the first year of recovery. Early sobriety demands all of your attention and you can't afford to be distracted by a new sexual relationship. 13th Stepping is dangerous and exploitative. When people first become sober they are highly vulnerable, and it's easy for other people to take advantage of them. Steer clear of that Willem guy, your car salesman, drug-dealer friend at the AA Club. Kristen walks out through the exit doors into the bright sunlight.

Nicholas Lazzaro, is dressed to the nines, donning high-end business attire, accentuated with multiple long gold chains of different lengths with a cross, and Italian horn symbol on them. He is sporting an impeccable John Gotti type hairstyle, a carefully crafted image.

NICK Did Willem mention what type of businesses we run? KRISTEN (painfully shy and embarrassed to say the word "escort") A car company, and an escort business? NICK Where do you live?

I always take special care of my new partner. Our team is like family. KRISTEN How would I get clients? NICK You can post your own ads on the internet. Each client pays $200. We will protect you for $50 a piece. KRISTEN (hesitantly) Is the $50 a set price? NICK Yes. KRISTEN I have a part time job. I'm not sure how this would work. NICK (a strong dominant voice) You must stop doing everything, so we can protect you. Kristen is like a deer in the headlights NICK (CONT'D) Are you excited?! KRISTEN (obligated to answer a rhetorical question) Yes. (CONTINUED)


7. CONTINUED: (7) NICK (feigning sincerity) I am always just a phone call way. KRISTEN When will we start? NICK You will need to pick up two disposable phones for us to talk privately, and another spare for my right hand man, DEENO. If I am not available, Deeno will be protecting you. He is my eyes and ears. You must always cover your driver. That is a priority. (emphasizing the word loyalty) From here on out, you will call me Valentine. Loyalty is the most important thing. Give me your complete loyalty and respect, and I will trust you implicitly. (definitively) I have many business associates, and a family. I am committed to my children. I need to protect their security. If you see me out and about, look the other way, like two ships passing in the night. A blue-point Himalayan cat jumps up onto the sofa. KRISTEN This is my Persian cat, Gigi. NICK (accentuates highly) I am highly allergic to cats. Kristen takes the cat and releases her onto the floor. Nick is casually looking at the photos of Kristen's family on the coffee table as if showing personal interest. NICK (CONT'D) Who's this? KRISTEN My sister. NICK Where does she live? (CONTINUED)


8. CONTINUED: (8) KRISTEN She lives on Chicago's North Shore, where I was brought up. My family still lives there. NICK I hope to meet her someday. Pause.

Inside Nick's car is a police radio, a pair of compact binoculars set on the dashboard, and a selection of high-tech surveillance devices and toys he keeps on hand in their appropriate places, some are stashed in the trunk. NICK (CONT'D) I've got Barry in training now. The New York bosses sent him down. I gave him a good deal on that white Chrysler 200 with blue rim hubcaps. (methodical nonchalance) (CONTINUED)


9. CONTINUED: (9) I'm scouting out car dealerships for recruits. DEENO I know a lot of car salesman from when I was general manager. My guy in Delray is very interested. NICK We are expanding "The Company" operations. New York is going hightech. The bosses have undercover soldiers in the military. I just bought a boatload of state-of-the-art surveillance equipment. Barry just signed a lease and is moving into Windemere Apartments, hush-hush undercover. (with intensity) Kapish?!

Now that we had to employ another driver to protect her, tell Kristen we have to raise the $50 protection cost to $75 to pay for gas. Starting today there will be a $75 fine imposed on any escort who does not fill the delivery quota. All the girls' computer activities are being monitored and routed into my laptop through the surveillance systems. YouTube instructions show how to use a Remote Access Trojan, so make a note of it.

Kristen pulls the drapes aside and looks out the window. There is an attractive, clean cut, spruce looking Latino man, early thirties, closing his car door, an older model beige Millenia. He walks across the parking lot towards the hotel as he holds a phone to his ear. Kristen's phone rings and she picks it up off the nearby table. KRISTEN Hello? AARON V.O. This is Aaron. I'm here, I'm in the parking lot. What's the room number? KRISTEN Room 237 at the end of the hall. Come on up. Kristen closes the flip phone and picks up another handset.

Kristen methodically sets the open phone line down on a table next to a lamp. Kristy looks in the mirror, lightly teasing her hair with slight uneasiness. There is a knock on the door. Upon entering the room Aaron immediately seizes control. He is unzips his sporty jacket to reveal the the police badge he wears around his neck and pulls out a .38 handgun from a shoulder holster. He is an aggressive and antagonistic psychopath. AARON I am Detective Sanchez. You are under arrest. You said a price on the phone. KRISTEN Any money is for my time as an adult entertainer. AARON There's another officer outside the door. If you cooperate and answer all my questions without hiding anything, it will make things easier for you.

KRISTEN (pleading) Please don't take all my money. It's my life savings. Aaron Sanchez smashes her laptop with his gun and breaks it. AARON You just can't come to Ft. Lauderdale and stay at a hotel. I'm going to get the other officer. Aaron slyly slips everything into a zipper bag and quickly exits the room, leaving the door ajar. Kristen is left dazed and stunned. She walks to the door, stepping out to out to look down the long empty corridor. It occurs to her that she has escaped unscathed. She appears shocked and relieved. Kristen searches her luggage and finds a new unactivated Horizon cell phone still in the box. INT.

I didn't know what to do, so I checked out and came home. NICK V.O. You're in Jupiter now? KRISTEN I came back last night. NICK V.O. You are going to have to prove to me that you were NOT arrested. KRISTEN I checked out of the hotel and got a refund. If I were arrested that would've never happened. It's all in the hotel records and on their security video. NICK V.O. (seemingly convinced and with boldness) Well, that's never going to happen again. Nick calls in his cohorts from out of town, as he is always paranoid and still doubtful about Kristy's explanation.

WILLEM (CONT'D) I've always wanted to do this... Willem cuts off Kristy's clothes down to the light pink and black lace panties and matching push-up bra. Kristen freezes up in the fear of flight-or-fight. Willem takes a torn piece of her sheer skirt and gags her, tying it up tightly behind her head.

THUG 1 We came in from New York to enforce the directive. ANDREA Okay. THUG 2 Your repeated delays with divorce proceedings has interfered with company business.

(CONTINUED)


78. CONTINUED: (78) EXT. WINDEMERE APARTMENTS FRONT PARKING AREA - DAY The blue Mitzubishi Spyder driven by Kristen, pulls in next to the black Lincoln Navigator. Nick lowers his power window. Kristen hands over an envelope. Nick is distracted with his smartphone. NICK Have you seen the news? Texas just got hit with a monster hurricane. KRISTEN It's hurricane season again. NICK I want you to rest assured that if we have a hurricane, I will make sure your windows are boarded up, and you have a generator. KRISTEN That would be great. INT. WINDEMERE - KRISTEN'S APARTMENT - DAY A Peacock News televised press conference featuring the GOVERNOR of Florida, introduced by an attractive, black, female NEWSCASTER, early thirties. Kristen stands in front of the television holding her cat. NEWSCASTER A state of emergency has been declared in all 67 Florida counties in preparation for a hit by catastrophic Hurricane Erma.

EAST NEIGHBORHOOD SUPERMARKET SHOPPING CENTER - DAY (CONTINUED)


79. CONTINUED: (79) Kristen pulls in and parks next to Nick's reversed parked black Lincoln Navigator. His window is down and she hands him an envelope. NICK I'm tracking the hurricane. The forecast storm surge is 5-7 feet. I'm evacuating before the whole state of Florida runs outta gas. Kristen stares in disbelief. KRISTEN What am I supposed to do? NICK Why don't you go to your mother's house? KRISTEN She's out of town. There's no escaping it anyway. It's going to consume the whole peninsula. There are no hotel vacancies anywhere in the entire state of Florida. Pause. KRISTEN (CONT'D) You promised me a generator and hurricane shutters. NICK Your putting words in my mouth. KRISTEN You said it twice. NICK (angry and domineering) Are you calling me a liar? Kristen is left alone in the path of the perilous storm and is unprepared in a dangerous category 5 hurricane. She is in her apartment, stockpiling her possessions up off the floor. She is seen putting masking tape over the windows to prevent broken glass shatter. She has a food and water surplus and parks her car in front of the window as a safety measure. Kristen is hunkered down for the storm. It becomes so perilous, that she urgently abandons her apartment and drives (CONTINUED)


80. CONTINUED: (80) to a shelter at night, with wind blown scattered debris, loose wires and dangling stoplights in a total blackout. The entire state of Florida is engulfed in a massive hurricane. The devastation in the aftermath of Hurricane Erma is a primitive scenario with widespread power outages, downed trees and strewn wreckage. It is an eerie silence in a power outage and the only sounds are neighborhood generators and chainsaws. INT. WINDEMERE - KRISTEN'S APARTMENT - DAY Kristen is roughing it out in the sweltering, humid heat with kerosene lamps, candles, mini-flashlights, and a battery powered lantern. It's business as usual and the hurricane disaster zone does not deter the hobbyists as Kristen struggles to survive in crude, barbaric circumstances. A phone rings.

(mature Scottish accent) Hello Kristen. Have you been in hospital? I have been reading for people all over the world for many years and your situation is the worst thing I ever heard. KRISTEN I have been trapped here for six years. SOCRATES O.S. This is such an injustice. Countless women and children have been murdered and enslaved in the sex industry underworld. Transactional sex between consenting adults is a crime and Marijuana is legalized. Despite anyone's views on marijuana, it's still a substance and it's optional. Sex is a basic human instinct. Pause. SOCRATES O.S. (CONT'D) (urgent compassion) You have got to get out of that hotel with a revolving door. KRISTEN It's my apartment. I have nowhere else to go. If these mob guys out me to the authorities or to my family, I'll be destitute, or worse. There's an armed guerrilla goomba outside my apartment, following me wherever I go. If I try to escape from this guy Valentine, his henchmen will hunt me down. I need protection from them. SOCRATES O.S. (CONTINUED)


82. CONTINUED: (82) (mature Scottish accent) That's not his real name. KRISTEN Who cares. I'm afraid to say his real name. He's listening to everything I say, watching everything I do, and tracking me wherever I go. SOCRATES O.S. (mature Scottish accent) This is an organized crime syndicate. Until the oldest profession in the world is decriminalized, sextraffickers have free reign in the underground shadows of criminality and the atrocity will go on. It's their theater. EXT.

KRISTEN (CONT'D) Hello? NICK V.O. (nervous angry agitation) What's going on?! What are you doing? (CONTINUED)

TONY (CONTINUED)


84. CONTINUED: (84) Good for you. That's something to be proud of. I just drink socially. Pause. TONY (CONT'D) I want to take you out. KRISTEN I have outside obligations here.

Deeno's unintelligible vengeful voice is heard in the background. NICK V.O. (CONT'D) You just decided to go off on your own somewhere... KRISTEN What's wrong with that. NICK V.O. Do you remember what I told you about loyalty and respect? KRISTEN I have been very loyal. No one is more loyal than me. You are the one who is disloyal. NICK V.O. What did you say?! KRISTEN You made me get stuck in "the business"... EXT. COSTA RICA LANDING STRIP - NIGHT A single engine Cessna is parked on a private, somewhat primitive landing strip in Costa Rica with bamboo torches set out for lighting. MARIO MORETTI and and his accomplice, Nick Lazzaro are getting situated in Mario's plane while an armed drug runner closes the bay doors and jumps onboard after loading the contraband. MARIO There are dozens of unrestricted airfields in Costa Rica. Mario is getting set to pilot the plane while Nick is seated next to him in the cockpit. (CONTINUED)


87. CONTINUED: (87) MARIO (CONT'D) Cesare's man says everything is copacetic with the game plan in Florida. NICK When I get back, I'm taking the Don's daughter out for lunch. The plane takes off at night and flies into the Florida Everglades at the dawn of a spectacular, ominous orange sunrise in South Florida. The airplane lands on a rudimentary, paved runway in a remote area near the Everglades. MARIO (quips) It pays to have friends in high places. When the Cessna comes to a complete stop, the tires are are shot out with an automatic weapon and the aircraft is under siege by a crew of sophisticated, masked desperados staging a heist. One of the goons opens fire on the black Yukon SUV getaway car parked near the runway, riddling the vehicle with stray bullets and deflating the tires. Another lawless comando torpedos the aircraft window with a tear gas grenade, as smoke is billowing out the window. Armed with machine guns and outfitted in combat garb, the urban guerrillas surround the plane in military style formation. INT. HUMAN SEX-TRAFFICKING ADVOCACY AND AWARENESS MEETING DAY Kristen McBride is now a sex-trafficking survivor advocate speaking publicly before a crowd. I am a human sex-trafficking survivor. I was held captive in sexual enslavement with a covert sex-trafficking racket in suburban modern America as a high-end, high-profile escort. As an entrapped, trafficked sex-worker, I was permitted to keep less than 12% of the proceeds. I paid for and posted my own internet ads. Internet censorship holds no justice for survivors of this horrific crime. The criminals are still at large. Human sex-trafficking is an underground American humanitarian crisis, controlled by a variety of global syndicates. The criminals just walked away scot-free. I have no recourse whatsoever. The only justice I will ever have is to relate my story and expose the modus operandi of sextraffickers. My objective is to illuminate and unmask this (CONTINUED)


88. CONTINUED: (88) atrocity, and to disempower sex-trafficking racketeers as they disempowered me. After living a powerless life of isolation, oppression and torment for over six years. I overcame and survived extreme adversity, and am now becoming an advocate for women who are sexually exploited and abused, and for the human rights of all women. My tragedy must serve a higher purpose. Law enforcement is not the solution to this problem, or this could never have happened in the first place. Sex-traffickers had power over me because prostitution is criminalized. Vulnerable, marginalized, consensual sex-workers and sex-trafficking victims must not be stigmatized and treated as expendable. They must be afforded basic, intrinsic human rights and safety. We must open our eyes, our hearts, and our minds. EXT. OCEAN SUNSET SKY - SUNSET MUSIC CUE: Devotion by Earth Wind and Fire A great flock of birds fly across the sky over the ocean sunset, symbolizing the souls of the countless women and children who have been murdered or enslaved in the shadows because the sex trades are criminalized.
