                       ASHLEY (OS)
Good afternoon, this is Ashley

                       ASHLEY (cont'd)
federal counts ranging from
racketeering too money laundering.


Sense April 12th 2009, the United
States Federal Bureau of
Investigation has kept a watchful
eye on Carlos and his business
practices. The F.B.I. says that
Carlos has evaded the government
on taxes, and have successfully
operated an illegal trade ring
that has some affiliation and ties
to the mafia, which has led to
other numerous charges.
                                                            
 
INT. LIMOUSINE - AFTERNOON
                                                            
TONY FERNANDEZ a Mexican male sits inside a limousine that's
parked in a nearby parking lot near the Richard B. Russel
Federal Building looking out of his window at the media
reporting the news.

He looks down at his television and looks on as Ashley
Watters report the FOUR O'CLOCK news. He reaches down for
the remote and turns the television off.

He continues to look out of the window from his limousine at
the live broadcast taken place in front of the Richard B.
Russell building.

Kane walks in with the case in his hand as Susan enters and
closes the door. The chamber is dimly lit and decorated with
numerous accolades.
                                                            
                       KANE
What happen out there your honor?
                                                            
Judge Hill walks over to her desk takes off her glasses and
sits down.
                                                            
                       JUDGE HILL
You heard the jurors Kane.
                                                            
Rubs her eyes.
                                                            

10.

                       JUDGE HILL (Cont'd)
Lack of evidence.
                                                            
Kane holds out the case.
                                                            
                       KANE
Lack of evidence my ass!! Thereís
enough evidence in here to take
the fucking president of the
United States out of office.
                                                            
Kane drops the case onto the Judge desk and walks over to
the window. Judge Hill takes the file and briefly looks
over the content.
                                                            
                       JUDGE HILL
      (At Kane)
Well Kane, this is definitely not
the president weíre dealing with.
This is a man who has money, and
with money comes power. As a
major counterpart to Wall Street,
the economy, politics, and real
estate, Mr. Carlos is a man who
can eventually buy his way in life
and out of any circumstances that
may arise.
                                                            
                       SUSAN
So youíre saying that he couldíve
bought his way out of this because
of his dominant status.
                                                            
Kane walks over to sit down in a chair where he buries his
head in his hands.
                                                            
                       JUDGE HILL
Could have who knows. However,
that's not what I'm saying. What
I'm saying is that if you had
money and power of that magnitude,
who knows.
                                                            
Kane lifts up his head.
                                                            
                       KANE
Yeah, who knows.
                                                            
Kane gets up and began to exit the office as Susan reaches
for her briefcase and follows behind him.
                                                            
 

11.

EXT. AGAIN THEY MEET - AFTERNOON
                                                            
Kane and Susan are walking down the courthouse steps in the
midst of the media to depart. While walking, they encounter
Kaneís partner Bryon Kills, who is attempting to make his
way through the media to approach them.
                                                            
                       KILLS
Hey donít worry about it weíll get
him next time.
                                                            
                       KANE
Yeah, yeah, next time, thereís
always a next time hey Kills.
                                                            
Kane pulls out a pack of cigarettes from his inside jacket
pocket. He takes one and places it in his mouth and puts
the pack back into his pocket.

He pulls out his cigarette lighter and stops to light the
cigarette. He looks over to his left to notice CARLOS
DiMAGGIO walking down to the bottom of the steps swamped by
news reporters, as he stops to meet a dear friend.
                                                            
                       NEWSREPORTER 1 (OS)
Mr. DiMaggio!!
                                                            
                       NEWSREPORTER 2 (OS)
Mr. DiMaggio!! The F.B.I brought
in key people to testify about the
DiMaggio Trade Commission is it
true what they say that the DTC
operates in illegal trade
activities.
                                                            
                       CARLOS
No comment.
                                                            
                       NEWSREPORTER 3 (OS)
Mr. DiMaggio!!
                                                            
                       NEWSREPORTER 4 (OS)
Mr. DiMaggio!! The jurorsí found
you not guilty how will this
affect your future as a dominant
power figure to the city.
                                                            
                       CARLOS (OS)
      (Laughing)
I don't know you tell me. You
guys seem to know all the news
before I do.
                                                            

12.

Kane, Bryon and Susan approach the bottom of the steps and
stops.
                                                            
                       KANE
Go ahead, Iíll catch up with you
guys.
                                                            
                       KILLS
All right, meet you at the car.
                                                            
Kane looks over his shoulder at Carlos who's now talking to
a dear friend and D.E.A, STEVEN CORALLIS who awaits him. He
gets swamped by newsreporter Ashley Watters and other media
reporters.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY (OS)
      (Verbally
       expressive)
Mr. Kane, Mr. Kane. Can you tell
us what happen today and what went
wrong? It seemed as though the
District Attorney and the F.B.I.
had this case wrapped up, what
happen.
                                                            
                       KANE (OS)
      (Disturbed)
Our team of investigators and
fellow agents worked numerous
hours seeking witnesses and
evidence to seal this case.
However, from the jurorsí decision
and perspective we didnít have
enough evidence. Thatís it in
nutshell.
                                                            
                       NEWSREPORTER 1 (OS)
Mr. Kane can you tell us where
does the DiMaggio case go from
here.
                                                            
                       KANE (OS)
I can't comment on that as of yet.
                                                            
                       NEWSREPORTER 2 (OS)
You said that your team and fellow
agents worked numerous hours. Can
you clarify to our viewers the
amount of manpower it took and how
will it affect taxpayers in terms
of dollar amount.
                                                            

13.

                       KANE (OS)
No comment. No more questions.
Thank you.
                                                            
Kane takes a puff of his cigarette.
                                                            
BOTTOM OF STEPS
                                                            
                       CARLOS
      (Excited)
Howís it going Steven, nice to see
you?
                                                            
Carlos extends his hand to exchange handshakes with Steven.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
      (Smiling)
Same here my friend.
                                                            
Carlos places his left hand onto Stevenís right shoulder and
continues to shake his hand.
                                                            
                       CARLOS
I thank you sincerely for all
youíve done for me, remember, if
thereís anything I could do for
you, anything; just let me know. I
owe you any favor. Remember,
Carlos DiMaggio is a man of his
word, remember that.
                                                            
                       STEVEN
I will.
                                                            
Carlos removes his hand from Steven's shoulder stops,
shaking his hand, and walks swiftly over towards Kane. He
pulls out a cigar from his inside jacket pocket, which he
place in his mouth.

He approaches Kane where the media has now dispersed and
extends his hand unto him to shake. Kane stands at the
bottom step with his cigarette in his left hand.
                                                            
                       KANE
No thanks.
                                                            
He takes a puff of the cigarette and blows out the smoke,
drops the cigarette to the ground and steps on it.
                                                            
                       KANE
      (At Carlos)
I donít shake hands with my
enemies.

Kane walks off and Carlos laughs as he is left hanging.
                                                            
ASHLEY WATTERS LIVE BROADCAST.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY (OS)
This is Ashley Watters reporting
live from the Richard B. Russell
Federal Building with a live
update from today's verdict of
Carlos DiMaggio.

Jurors found Mr. DiMaggio not
guilty on all counts. During court
the F.B.I.'s top agent, Michael
Kane was greatly displeased with
the outcome and said that, "He and
his team of investigators and
fellow agents worked numerous
hours seeking witnesses and
evidence to seal this case." He
said that, "However, from the
jurors decision and perspective
they didn't have enough." Enough
evidence is what Michael Kane is
referring to. If you have been
following the trail, the District
Attorney brought into evidence key
documents that they knew would
land Carlos in prison. Also, some
of the key witnesses that the
District Attorney's team brought
forth to testify, had
knowledgeable information to share
about Carlos and his operation in
the DTC, that the F.B.I felt very
confident about, that would help
them win this case.

However, the last word and final
decision was that from the jury.
I'm Ashley Watters, reporting live
at the Richard B. Russell Building
for QNEWS 5.
                                                            
 
INT. THE OFFICE - F.B.I. HEADQUARTERS - LATER
                                                            
Kane and Bryon are sitting at an office desk looking over
the case. Kane is sitting with his hands propped behind his
head.
                                                            
                       KANE
What a day, what a day.
                                                            

15.

Kane looks off into the distance, while Bryon sits propped
over the desk looking over the case.
                                                            
                       KILLS
Yeah, you tell me.
                                                            
Kane leans forward and props his arms atop of his desk.
                                                            
                       KANE
You know partner, we caught a
pretty big fish, but I canít
understand how it got away.
                                                            
Bryon looks up.
                                                            
                       KANE
I mean we did every thing right to
catch this fish, we fed it live
bate and he bit, we even sat
around waiting countless hours to
catch him, and still the son of a
bitch gets away. Now you tell me,
what in the hell just happen in
court today.
                                                            
Kane gets up from his desk and walks over to the water
container to get a sip of water. On his return back to his
desk, Bryon continues to thumb through the file looking over
surveillance photos and notes, as he pause at a particular
picture of Carlos and four other men.
                                                            
                       KILLS
I'm not sure, but what I am sure
of is this. Check this out.
                                                            
Bryon passes the picture to Kane.
                                                            
                       KANE
Whatís this?
                                                            
Bryon places his hands together and cross his right leg over
the other.
                                                            
                       KILLS
This is something that has
bothered me sense we left court,
take a look at the guy next to
Carlos.
                                                            
                       KANE
What about him?
                                                            

16.

                       KILLS
Notice how attached he is to
Carlos than the rest of his men.
Looks like Carlos have a partner
that he didnít want us to no
about.
                                                            
Kane leans forward and looks over the picture closely.
                                                            
                       KANE
So what youíre saying, Kills?
                                                            
                       KILLS
What Iím saying is that from
looking over the surveillance
photos I could see how the jurors
found Carlos not guilty. I mean
look at it Kane, our man is right
before our eyes and we were to
blind to see him coming.
                                                            
Kane leans back into his chair and tosses the picture onto
his desk.
                                                            
                       KANE
I see Carlos.
                                                            
                       KILLS
Thatís the problem. What we see
isnít what the jurors seen. What
they seen was surveillance photos
of a man who has no prior criminal
record. A man who is well known
to political parties as a major
sponsor, a major contributor
giving back to the community, and
one of Atlantaís elite business
men in real estate and on wall
street. So, you tell me, if you
were a juror on this case would
you suspect a man of that status
to be a crook.
                                                            
                       KANE
Hey, as a Federal Agent to the
United States, its my job to be
suspicious of any unlawful
activity that goes on in my view.
Besides, there are everyday crooks
in corporate America, so what make
Carlos a saint, just because he
appears to be.
                                                            

17.

                       KILLS
Exactly, just because he appears
to be. You see Kane; he appeared
to be just that in the eyes of the
juror, a saint. And the guy next
to him is his diversion; he is the
man that the juror saw throughout
this case that we overlooked.
Because we were so in tune to
catching Carlos, we failed to even
see this guy before our eyes
coming, and all the time we were
after Carlos, this guy; his
diversion was handling all his
business.
                                                            
Kane reaches to review the surveillance photo once more.
                                                            
                       KANE
This cat.
                                                            
                       KILLS
This cat.
                                                            
                       KANE
So, youíre saying this is our man.
                                                            
Bryon sits back into his seat and places his hand behind his
head.
                                                            
                       KILLS
No, what Iím saying is that this
is our ticket to our man.
                                                            
Kane looks over at Bryon and gets up with the photo in his
hand and walks off.
                                                            
                       KANE
Iím going to take your word,
Kills.
                                                            
                       KILLS
And do what?
                                                            
                       KANE
Get us a ticket.
                                                            
Bryon turns around in his chair as Michael proceeds to exit
the office.
                                                            
CAPTAIN FIELDS OFFICE
                                                            

18.

Kane walks towards Captain Fields office. He approaches the
captainís door and knocks on the door; Captain Fields is
sitting at his desk talking on the phone. Kane knocks once
more as the captain gives Kane a slight hand gesture to
enter.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS (Phone)
      (Smiling)
Yeah, yeah tomorrow at noon
      (Pause)
the commissioner will be there
      (Pause)
okay, see you tomorrow.Ē
                                                            
He hangs up the phone and Kane enters the office.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
Well, well, well look who's here.
Come in have a seat. So, what's
on your mind Kane.
                                                            
Kane takes a seat in front of Captain Fields desk tosses the
pictures onto the desk and scoots up closer.
                                                            
                       KANE
This.
                                                            
Captain Fields reaches over and takes the picture.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
What about it?
                                                            
Kane crosses his left leg one over the other.
                                                            
                       KANE
Our ticket to Carlos.
                                                            
Captain Fields looks at the picture.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
      (Shocked)
Carlos. Kane, donít you know we
have exhausted time and manpower
into this case and came out with
nothing. And you still want to
pursue a man that we couldnít even
get a juror to find guilty to
convict.
                                                            
                       KANE
Yeah, But I think we went after
the wrong man.
                                                            

19.

                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
Wrong man.
      (Sniggle)
Okay, so who did we go after Kane
sense you seem to think Carlos was
the wrong guy?
                                                            
Captain Fields puts the picture onto the desk.
                                                            
                       KANE
No I donít think that, what Iím
saying is that we didnít keep our
opportunityís open. We zoomed in
on Carlos and totally forgot about
one man.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
Oh, okay, and what man is that?
                                                            
Kane points his index finger to Tony Fernandez.
                                                            
                       KANE
This man.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
And who is this guy?
                                                            
Kane uncrosses his leg and sits up to readjust himself to
get comfortable.
                                                            
                       KANE
Carlos right hand man.
                                                            
Captain Fields leans back into his seat.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
And how do you know this, because
I donít want to go after an
innocent man who has nothing to do
with this just because you have
some suspicious notion to get
even.
                                                            
                       KANE
Trust me, I want let you down.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
All right Kane, I'll trust you.
Besides, you're one of the best
men I have on my team. And I
trust that you of all agents along
with your partner know what you're
doing and want let me down. But
            (MORE)

20.

                       CAPTAIN FIELDS (cont'd)
if you do your ass is grass, Kane.
                                                            
                       KANE
You have my word.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
Your word doesnít mean shit.
                                                            
                       KANE
My word is bond.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
Alright, alright, Iíll take your
word, you have my permission.
However, Iím sorry to say that it
wont be easy, Iím going to have to
involve a higher authority in on
this one. You guys have done all
you can do.
                                                            
                       KANE
No, we havenít done enough.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
Really, and to whom do you owe
this privilege to?
                                                            
                       KANE
      (Pause)
Myself.

                       KILLS
I take it you already have
reservations for two, or an
invitation.
                                                            
                       KANE

don't need one.
                                                            
                       KILLS

Okay, and where's this party at

Kane takes a cigarette and places it in his mouth.
                                                            
                       KANE
This is it.
                                                            
He takes the cigarette lighter from the car and lights his
cigarette.
                                                            
                       KANE
Yeah, I figured if Carlos is going
to celebrate, it would be where he
conducts all of his business
engagements. So, if I'm right,
I'd think he would come here to
have a victory party, and maybe
our little friend will be here to
help him celebrate his victory
today.
                                                            

22.

Kane looks out his window to see the crowd entering and

his desk watching television and in the background you hear
the weather report over the scanner.
                                                            
                       KANE
Excuse me, whoís in charge?

25.

                       CLERK
Nice to meet you. What brings you
here. You guys need to book a
private flight out of town?
                                                            
The clerk begins to pour coffee into his cup. He reaches
over to grab a nearby truckers hat sitting beside the coffee
dispenser and puts it on his head. Kane and Kills looks at
each other briefly and smirks over the hat on the clerks
head.
                                                            
                       KILLS
No sir, maybe next time. But that
plane that just left, who does it
belong to?
                                                            
The clerk begins to pour cream into his coffee.
                                                            
                       CLERK
Just a second.
                                                            
The clerk puts down the cream, and reaches under the counter
to retrieve a logbook, which he places on top of the
counter. He opens the book and began to thumb through the
pages. Kane walks over to the door while Bryon remains
standing at the counter. The clerk continues to sift through
the pages as he put his coffee down on the counter.
                                                            
                       CLERK
Okay, here it is. The plane seems
to be registered to a young man

Clerk takes a sip of his coffee.
                                                            
                       CLERK

guy, did he do something wrong?
                                                            

26.

                       KANE
No, just a routine check up.
                                                            
                       KILLS
I thought you said you didn't know
him.
                                                            
                       CLERK
Actually, Iíve talked to him
briefly several times whenever
heís come in the lobby, but I
donít know the fellow that well.
                                                            
Kane looks through the log.
                                                            
                       KILLS
Well maybe you could be of help

The clerk points to the name in the log and take a sip of
coffee.
                                                            
                       CLERK

number, all there.
                                                            
                       KILLS
Thank you.

it.
                                                            
                       KANE
Mined if we get a copy.

                       CLERK
Sure, just one minute. Iíll get
that for you.
                                                            
The clerk grabs the logbook and turns it around to open the
binders. He takes out the log sheet and walks over to the
copy machine. Kane turns towards the door as Bryon walks
over to the snack machine to purchase a snack. He reaches
into his pockets searching for change.

Nah, I'm good, eating junk this
late will ruin my appetite for
breakfast.
                                                            
The clerk comes to the counter to give Kane the copy of the
log sheet.
                                                            
                       CLERK

                       AGENT 1
Is this your guy?
                                                            
Kane places his hand over the mouse and scrolls down the
screen.
                                                            
                       KILLS
That's our man.
                                                            
                       KANE
What a rap sheet.
                                                            
                       KILLS
Very impressive.
                                                            
                       KANE
Very, mind if we get a print out?
                                                            
                       AGENT 1

                       AGENT 1
That easy.

      (Pause)
This guy seems to be one of
Americaís Most Wanted. Heís on
the ďAĒ list of Americaís top drug
suppliers with a cartel the size
of a corporation. He runs and
operates out of South America
flooding cocaine to the entire
United States to overseas. He has
a distribution ring that can
supply the demand of high volume
cocaine like heís selling millions
of records.
                                                            
Bryon takes a sip of his soda.
                                                            
                       KILLS
Looks to me like our friend is
running one hell of a business and
Carlos is not in the picture.
                                                            
Kane pulls out a cigarette and lights it up.
                                                            
                       KANE
Yeah. But how is this related to
Carlos I donít know. Carlos would
never operate in illegal
substances to make money.
                                                            
                       KILLS
Youíll never no what a man would
do to get his hands on a dollar.
                                                            
Kane puffs on his cigarette and looks out of his window.
                                                            
                       KANE

Hereís to good times.
                                                            
Beverly picks up her glass to toast.
                                                            
                       BEVERLY
      (Smiling)
And many more to come.
                                                            
Tony and Beverly exchange toast and takes a sip of the wine
and place their glasses down.
                                                            
                       BEVERLY
So, is this where you conduct all
of your meetings?
                                                            
Tony takes another sip of his wine.
                                                            
                       TONY
No, here and there. I believe
that a man in my line of business
mustnít stay in one place. I
think he must stay mobile so that
he canít be detected.
                                                            
Tony reaches down to unfold his cloth napkin to wipe his
mouth.
                                                            
                       BEVERLY
So, I see, youíre always on the
move.
                                                            
                       TONY
Always.
                                                            
Picks up his fork to take a bite of his meal from his plate.
                                                            
                       TONY
Iím like a traveling salesman, I
meet my clients in person to make
the direct sale. Unlike most
salesmen, I manufacture and
distribute my own goods, ensuring
grade ďAĒ product and service.
                                                            
Beverly picks up her cloth napkin to wipe her mouth.
                                                            

31.

                       BEVERLY
So, your word guarantees my order
will be grade "A"?
                                                            
Tony takes another sip of his wine.
                                                            
                       TONY
Guaranteed.
                                                            
                       BEVERLY
Guaranteed, huh. Well Tony, talk
is cheap, you'll have to show me?
                                                            
Tony pulls out a cigar and lights it up.
                                                            
                       TONY
I'll personally see to it that you
are a satisfied customer.
                                                            
                       BEVERLY
      (Hesitant to reply)
Alright. So, lets get down to
business?
                                                            
Tony reaches into his inside jacket pocket and pulls out an
order form. He unfolds the form and lays it out onto the
table and turns it around so that Beverly can see it.
                                                            
                       TONY
Okay.
                                                            
He pulls out an ink pen, which he points and circle
important information on the form.
                                                            
                       TONY
This is the order form to place
your order. The circles that Iíve
made on the form are very
important, so please read
carefully. Once you have read the
form and agree to itís content,
Iíd like for you to initial where
I have circled, and we have
ourselves a deal.
                                                            
Beverly looks over the form and initial within the circles,
she places her order and writes down "twenty five hundred
kilos of packed cocaine". She also writes specific
directions on how to ship her goods writing, "Ship contents
via Laptop computers, lined in plastic coating." She slides
the form over to Tony. Tony takes the order form and looks
over it and folds it and places it back into his inside
jacket pocket, he gets up from his seat and extends his left

32.

hand unto Beverly, which she extends her left hand and he
gently kisses the back of her hand.
                                                            
                       TONY
It's a pleasure doing business
with you. I'll see you tomorrow
to discuss your delivery.

Kane and Bryon are sitting at the bar drinking beer. Kane
is smoking.
                                                            
                       KANE
You know Kills, it's been a long
day. Hopefully tomorrow will be a
lot brighter partner.
                                                            
Bryon takes a drink from his glass and puts it down.
                                                            
                       KILLS
Yeah, I just couldnít bare another
day like this.
                                                            
Bryon takes another sip from his glass as he and Kane gets
up from the bar stool to leave. Kane reaches into his
pocket to retrieve a twenty-dollar bill to leave on the bar.
                                                            
 
INT. CONFERENCE ROOM- COLOMBIA, SOUTH AMERICA - AFTERNOON
                                                            
Tony is conducting a business meeting with his fellow family
members at his office. Everyone is sitting around a
conference table.
                                                            
                       TONY
I just come from America, where my
business counterpart and long time
friend Carlos was found not guilty
on all counts by the jury. I have
to say that it was a happy day for
the DTC and myself to see Carlos
walk from his charges. However,
the effect of him walking is going
to pose a major set back with the
Fernandez organization.
                                                            
                       RAPHAEL
And howís that, Tony.
                                                            
Tony walks slowly around the table.
                                                            

33.

                       TONY
Well, Carlos is a smart man. He
figures that his empire along is
worth over several million
dollars, so why deal in illegal
substances only to generate heat
to destroy it. He says that, as
long he can monopolize the trade
industry he can trade what he
want, when he want, and how he
want on the black market as long
as it doesnít affect his core
infrastructure, the DTC. The
DiMaggio Trade Commission is the
most powerful trading organization
for the black market in the world
that controls everything that
comes and goes across the borders
of the Unites States to around the
world. Every commodity or goods
on the black market are traded
through the DTC, once the goods
have made its way through customs
it can be traded amongst anyone in
the DTC that has any goods or
commodity they would like to trade
of equal or higher value for
profit or pleasure. Itís like
trading cards, my Mickey Mantel
rookie card for your rookie
Michael Jordan card.
      (He stops)
In the DTC, my Mickey Mantel
rookie card will be placed up for
trade along with your rookie
Michael Jordan card. If my card
or good has more value than yours
you can either add to the trade to
make it an even trade or someone
else could get into the trade who
would like to have what we are
trading, so they would increase
the trade with an offer of there
own, lets say for something they
deem is of more value than yours,
and it goes on until I find a bid
worth trading that I may need of
my own or something I could profit
from on the spot. However, to
make it all legit, Carlos
organized a corporation, which is
the DTC to oversee the day to day
activities to keep Uncle Sam from
ever suspecting a thing.
                                                            

34.

Tony continues to walk around the table.
                                                            
                       TONY
So, with that said our
organization could face some
serious set backs, because
everything weíve created circle
around the DTC, therefore, Carlos
will have his watchful eyes in on
every trade activity that goes on,
and believe me, what weíve been
trading isnít what Carlos want in
his empire. Now that heís back in
the midst of things, heíll be in
hands on to track every thing that
comes through the DTC, therefore
what we have brought to the table
will not make it through without
him finding it. So, weíll have to
resort to plan B, which is to
cover up the deal by falsifying
information we submit on paper to
the DTC to cross the borders, itís
easy to write down a car on paper
than it is two thousand kilos of
cocaine. And with the assistance
of the DTC, and its relationship
with customs, our product will
pass with flying colors, just
because it was traded in the DTC.
Remember, my friends, anything
that is traded in the DTC is worth
passing customs because of the man
behind the name, Carlos DiMaggio.
Weíre operating a five million
dollars a day business and if
weíre not able to get our products
delivered to its appropriate
destination then weíve lost
clientele and millions of dollars,
which I refused to let happen.
What we have created let no man
take us down, our business is well
needed in the community.
                                                            
 
INT. FRIDAY-KANE'S HOUSE SUBURBS OF BROOKHAVEN GA - MORNING

Breakfast is on the table.
                                                            
Helen places her head back into the shower. Kane walks out

Kane enters the bedroom with the newspaper in one hand and
eating on the bagel in the other. Helen has gotten out of
the shower where she's standing beside the bed in her robe.
                                                            
                       HELEN
Is that all you're eating, a
bagel?
                                                            
Helen walks over to Kane and gives him a kiss on the lips as
he attempts to feed her some of his bagel.
                                                            
                       KANE
Yeah, have some.
                                                            
                       HELEN
No thanks Iím watching my figure.
                                                            
Helen walks away as Kane taps her on her bottom. She walks
away to grab her dress off the bed to put on.
                                                            
                       KANE
      (Giggles)
So am I.

INT. LOCAL COFFEE HOUSE IN DECATUR GA - MORNING
                                                            
Kane and Bryon are sitting at a local coffee shop sipping
coffee. Here they are discussing future plans on how to
approach Tony. Bryon takes a sip of his coffee.
                                                            
                       KILLS
      (Blows to cool it
       down)
Nothing like caffeine to get your
day started, hey Kane.
                                                            
Kane picks up his coffee, takes a sip and looks out the
window at the morning traffic.
                                                            
                       KANE
Tell me about it.
                                                            
Kane pulls out a pack of cigarettes and taps them on the
back of his hand to retrieve one. He takes the cigarette
and places it on his lips.
                                                            
                       KILLS
You know, I've been thinking of a
way to approach this Tony guy
without destroying the evidence we
already have that links him to
Carlos.
                                                            
Kane pulls out a cigarette lighter from his jacket pocket.
Bryon points to a no smoking sign hanging on the wall, he
reaches over and takes the lighter from Kane.
                                                            
                       KILLS
Can't you see the sign, No
Smoking.
                                                            
Kane removes the cigarette from his mouth and taps the butt
of it on the counter in a frustrating twitch.
                                                            
                       KANE
      (A look of
       frustration)
Yeah, yeah, I see the damn sign.
                                                            
                       KILLS
      (Laughing)
So how much more of a pick me up
you need Kane.
                                                            
Kane puts away the cigarette and takes a sip of his coffee.
                                                            

37.

                       KANE
Hey, don't judge me. One day I may
stop, but this want be the day. So
what's your plan?
                                                            
Bryon places his hands around his coffee cup and begin to
slowly turn it around.
                                                            
                       KILLS
I was thinking more on the lines
of going in.
                                                            
Kane takes the cigarette lighter and puts it back into his
jacket pocket.
                                                            
                       KANE
What do you mean?
                                                            
                       KILLS
I mean, that throughout our
investigation with Carlos, all of
our surveillance was done from the
outside. Every picture, to every
conversation, we got from the
outside looking in, therefore
every thing we presented to the
court had no weight attached to it
for the jurors to prosecute
Carlos. So, I was thinking this
time we go in and get it.
                                                            
Kane takes a sip of his coffeee and looks out the window
once more and back at Bryon.
                                                            
                       KANE
Go in?
                                                            
Bryon stops turning the coffee cup.
                                                            
                       KILLS
Go in?
                                                            
                       KANE
Undercover.
                                                            
Bryon takes another sip of his coffee and places it back
down onto the table.
                                                            
                       KILLS
Undercover.

Tony's plane is in flight as he sits near the window with a
glass of wine, and an unfinished meal, as he smokes on a
Cuban cigar. A very beautiful woman walks up to him and
takes the unfinished meal. He removes his cigar picks up a
phone, starts dialing and places it to his ear.
                                                            
                       TONY (Phone)
      (Spanish)
Hello, how are you doing? Fine
just fine. I shall arrive in Las
Vegas around seven o'clock for our
appointment. First I must go to
Atlanta and see a dear friend, and
as soon as I finish I will come
meet you. Yes. Everything is
taking care of. Yes, I have
pretty women just for you, and I
have a sample pack just for you to
taste. If you like what you taste
then we do business. Well, if you
don't like what you taste we still
do business, because you'll
compensate me for my time, and the
sample pack, and you'll move on
without us never to meet again,
and never to sell an ounce of
cocaine again in your life.
      (Laughs)
Trust me. I'll see to it.
                                                            
Hangs up walks to his office where he sits down to call
Carlos.
                                                            
                       TONY (Phone)
Hey Carlos, how you're doing
buddy? Great that's great. So,
how's business? Really. Well I
was thinking about the
proposition, and I think it would
be wise to go in at three point
five to start. Well the last time
I check the bid was up a hundred
thousand and growing, making it
damn near four million to close.
Yes my friend, I'm in the air as
we speak, I should be landing in
another hour are so. Yeah, I'll
be there, alright.
                                                            
He hangs up the phone and places his CUBAN cigar in his
mouth takes a puff and exhales.

INT. THE RIDE IN THE CITY 1 - MORNING
                                                            
Kane and Bryon are driving through the city of Atlanta in
Kaneís BMW Z4 ROADSTER.
                                                            
                       KILLS
I want to go in. I think it would
be wise for me to go in
considering the relationship you
and Carlos share. Besides, I know
everyone in Carlos organization is
very familiar with Michael Kane,
so I'm sure this Tony guy knows
you as well. If he doesn't know
you now, I'm sure he will later
on, and that will kill the entire
operation. So, as partners I
think it would be a good idea for
me to represent this operation,
but I'm going to need your back,
when I call, you have to be there,
and when I fall, you have to be
there to pick me up.
                                                            
                       KANE
Hey, thatís what partners for, I
got your back and you got mine.
      (Pause)
Now you know to get this operation
in motion weíll have to implement
the right strategy to catch this
guy. Because looking over his
movement he doesnít stay in one
place long enough to be found. So,
for us to get a hand on him weíll
have to set up operation Take Down
and work our way inside without
him knowing we ever came, how we
came, are who sent us. Some way
some how Kills, Tony mustnít know
who you are, where you came from
nor how you got here, so for this
operation to be a success weíll
have to change your entire
identity and make you one of them,
a major player in the drug game,
if weíre ever going to get to
Carlos weíll have to go through
Tony, you got me.
                                                            
                       KILLS
Got you.
                                                            

40.

                       KANE
      (Index finger
       gesture)
So, to get this two for one, you
must eat, sleep, and breathe Tony
Fernandez and become one of his
major buyers. Now this will have
to work according to plan or else
weíre fucked. Weíll take this up
with Fields and arrange for your
new identity to be approved, and
then weíll initiate contact with
our man and make arrangements so
the two of you can meet, and weíll
see what happens from there.
                                                            
Kane and Bryon pull into the parking lot of the Federal
Bureau of Investigation and park.
                                                            
 
INT. FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION-CONFERENCE ROOM - DAY
                                                            
Kane, Bryon and Captain Fields are sitting at a conference
table discussing OPERATION TAKE DOWN. Captain Fields is
looking over the print out that Kane printed earlier on
Tony.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
So, is this our man from the
surveillance?
                                                            
                       KANE
Yeah. This is Tony Fernandez;
he's the most notorious drug
supplier in Mexico. He runs an
operation that consists of an
organized cartel that brings in
over six to seven million dollars
a day from cocaine sales.
                                                            
Leans back in chair.
                                                            
                       KANE
He owns over ten acres of land,
which he grows his own coca plants
to produce cocaine. Like here in
America we have tobacco fields,
which the tobacco is cut down and
sold legally on the market, well
his organization does the same
except with cocaine.
                                                            
Leans forward.
                                                            

41.

                       KANE
He runs a legal pharmaceutical
company, which is his decoy, to
cover up his shipments, which are
legally distributed like tobacco
in cigarettes across the borders,
or sold in store, his stores. This
cat runs like several freaking
convenient stores which sales
cocaine like we sale cigarettes.
His operation is ran so well that
authorities has no means of
touching him, he's untouchable, he
abides to all the laws of
business. However, to add, the
police are afraid to even attempt
to bust him, because he's so
powerful, he's like a king, it is
said that this cat has more power
than the Mexican government. He
provides to the community by
giving jobs, he helps the poor by
building them homes to live in,
and he donates to charity to
assist the homeless, and any
poverty stricken neighborhood he
revitalize like American projects.
I mean this guy is something.
                                                            
Captain Fields licks his index finger and flips the page.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
      (At Kane)
And what does he has to do with
Carlos?
                                                            
                       KILLS
Well, Tony and Carlos are the best
of friends and business
associates. Now, we know that
Carlos will never pen any illegal
substance to his resume, because
it would ruin his image in the
public eye. So we figured weíll
go after Tony and heíll lead us to
Carlos, and weíll get a two for
one deal.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
      (Unpleased)
How?

Undercover.
                                                            
Captain Fields puts the information down.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
Undercover.
      (Pause)
And you want to go after this guy?
                                                            
                       KANE
Yeah.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
Okay, so whatís the plan?
                                                            
                       KANE
Operation Take Down. Bryon is the
decoy for this operation. He'll
go in and infiltrate the mission
and become one of Tony's major
buyers. The plan is to give Bryon
an entire new identity that will
allow him to meet without being
suspected so he could investigate
from inside the organization. Once
inside he could seize information
that will prove vital to taking
down the DiMaggio family as well
as the Fernandez cartel. We
figured that with the help of the
D.E.A., the operation wouldn't
have any drawbacks as far as
working with the Mexican
authority's.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
Sounds great, but how do we get to
Tony without looking suspicious?
                                                            
                       KILLS
Well thereís a cat we cuffed
thatís doing time in the pen for
buying and selling crack cocaine
and powder. He was a big timer
running from Miami to New York who
covered the southeast region, with
that kind of coverage Iím sure
this cat will know something, so,
I think we start there and
hopefully get something solid that
could help.
                                                            

43.

                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
Well it wouldn't hurt, he does
have something we need. Besides
the drug war in Mexico has gotten
out of control with all the
murders. If this guy Tony has
anything to do with any of them,
it' time we get him off the grid.
Lets do it.

I donít know who or what youíre
looking for, but thatís a list of
suppliers. I hope who youíre
looking for is on that list, if
not, thatís all the information I

Bryon gets up from his seat.
                                                            
                       KILLS
Thatís all I needed.
                                                            
Bryon exits the room.

                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
This is for Kills, this is his new
identity, and in here he will find
every thing he would need to cover
this operation. Thereís a new
social security number, birth
certificate, drivers license,
passport, bank account, new home,
new car you name it itís there. If

heíll have to play like him, by
his rules. Just let Bryon know
that after this is over with the
glamorous life ends, so he better
enjoy it while he can.
                                                            
Captain Fields sits down at Kaneís desk and opens the
envelope to retrieve the contents from inside. He pours

everything out onto the desk. Kane reaches over to grab the
driverís license.
                                                            
                       KANE
Charles Reed.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
Yeah, I thought the name fits
Bryon, beside he looks like a
Charles Reed donít you think?
                                                            
Michael places the drivers license back and grabs the birth

                       KANE
Dallas Texas, how about In
Between, Georgia.
      (Laughs)
Bryon doesnít look like he comes
from Texas, heís a Duke, a good
old country boy from down south,
back woods, one main road with one
red light and a bunch of red
Georgia clay.

cowboy that owns half of Dallas.
                                                            
Kane places the birth certificate back down.
                                                            
                       KANE
And howís this country cowboy
going to interact with a major
drug distributor like Tony?
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
Because he has the money to do so,
thatís all our friend Tony is
interested in, does he has the
money to purchase the minimum
quantity of drugs he supply,
everything else is just to sale
the image to fit in well enough to
investigate his organization to
get to our man Carlos.
                                                            
Kane leans back into his seat.

Hey, if you say so. Are we going

Very funny Kane, now where is your

statement, and on it are the company header ALTON, INC.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
You own several oil refineries.
Your success comes from selling

corporation's. You are a
businessman that has capitalized
on the success of oil; you're like
the modern day Ross Perot. You

million dollars, you're a real
estate investor who owns several
homes and properties in the Dallas
area, a real estate brokerage
firm, two upscale office buildings

Dallas, and an estate in Fairburn
Georgia, and you drive a 2007 Ford

Bryon pulls out the list from the inside of his jacket.
                                                            
                       KILLS
Yeah, right here. I guess he

Kane exhales tosses the cigarette, takes the list and looks

                       KANE
Well, nice try. I suggest we give

organization, they are the one
person wearing all the hats, be it

CFO, the COO, to the board of
directors, the owner is the man
who all decisions must run by my
friend, unless he's lost control
of his company due to a merger, or
a hostile takeover, then he has
nothing, besides anybody else
can't do anything for me, as far
as making the top decision to sale
or buy. And I want to buy and you
want to sell, I'd hope. So when
can we meet?

Great, everything looks okay.
Donít worry about not being heard,
the Voice Track program has the
capability to record from over a
hundred yards and create a visual
script on screen even if the
person speaking is whispering. It
can pick up the lowest decibels
and notate every word, sound, or
noise precisely and accurately.
This system is more advanced than
the system we used earlier, this
one has the capability to record
in real time audio and visual.

                       KANE
Exactly, it has a voice
recognizable memory to recognize
each persons voice that speaks,

to deter you from your happiness,

new members to the DTC. And that
            (MORE)

73.

                       CARLOS (cont'd)
while you're here, you all will
gather as much information to
assist you all with your decision
to join our organization, which is
a fine organization I must say so
myself. If by any chance that you
find yourself interested just let
the person who invited you know so
that we can get the paperwork
together.
      (Pause)
Okay, to proceed, as we all know
as of Thursday I was found not
guilty on all counts, for my guest
who don't know read the headlines,
so with that said I am a free man.
However, I'm still under the
fire, watchful eyes of the law.
Anyway, I instilled my trust in my
friend and partner Tony Fernandez
to run the company, and from
looking over the minutes from last
weeks meeting I see that we
brought aboard a new member, Mr.
Jose Gambinna, who is the
CEO/President for Auto Rental Car,
and Owner of Southern Grand
Casino. I also see that our trade
was up ten percent, so that brings
our profit margin up by three
point two percent with a net
profit of four point five million.
We took in five trades and one
penalty. So, it looks like we're
doing good business.
                                                            
                       KANE (Radio)
Bryon, ask him what is the nature
of their business, and what does a
penalty applies to.
                                                            
Bryon raises his right hand to ask a question.

Excuse me their partner.

      (Looks at Bryon)
Yes. How can I help?
                                                            

74.

                       KILLS
Could you tell me the nature of
business in the DTC and what does
a penalty implies too.
                                                            
                       CARLOS
Good question. Our business here
at the DTC is simple; it is trade.
We trade goods of value amongst
one another, your pen for my pen,
your shirt for my shirt. Each
member is a key player in the
business industry. Everyone has
something to give for something in
return, almost like bartering. I
sometimes may trade my services
for yours, or my sports car for
your home in Malibu, if I found
its value is worth the trade. If
not, someone else may find my car
worth having and add to the trade,
lets say, a home in Alpharetta and
a set of titanium golf clubs. Who
knows, but you get the idea. And
if a trade isnít made within the
trading day, the person or persons
whoís left with their goods must
pay a penalty. Yes, we are in
business to trade on the black
market certain goods and
commodities that have passed
through customs. However, what we
trade is amongst us and only us,
and has no way to get to the
outside.
                                                            
                       KILLS
Well hot damn, sign me up.

through today and hope that

for tonightís meeting at the DiMaggio Trade Commission; on
the captainsí desk are several DTC trade certificates. Kane
and Bryon are sitting at the desk.
                                                            
                       KILLS
I was told that I must have these
certificates filled out in order
to conduct business in the DTC.
Our friend Carlos told me that in
order to make a trade transaction
these have to be complete.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
How do they work?
                                                            
Bryon walks over to the window.
                                                            
                       KILLS
Like money, instead of it being a
currency of monetary value, it
holds it value based on the goods,
products, or services you place on
the certificate. Lets say your
car for my boat or your pen for my
pen or whatever youíd like to
trade.
                                                            
Turns around walks over to desk.
                                                            
                       KILLS
It works like this. In every day
life we trade something with
someone, be it services or
whatever. Lets say as a kid you
would trade your toy for my toy,
my G.I Joe, for your R2D2. Now,
letís say that my G.I. Joe was
            (MORE)

                       KILLS (cont'd)
worth ten dollars, but your R2D2
was worth more.
                                                            
Picks up a certificate.
                                                            
                       KILLS
To complete the trade, I would
have to give you something else
along with my G.I. Joe to equal
the value of your R2D2, to make
the trade an even deal of value.
Or I traded you my baseball card
for your baseball card, and Kane
comes alone and says heíll raise
the bid and trade me two of his
best cards for my one. You can
either raise the stake and bid
with him for my one card thatís
worth millions or you can see your
bid good bye to the highest
bidder.
                                                            
Drops the certificate.
                                                            
                       KILLS
After the trade has been initiated
ten percent of the trade goes to
the organizations head, which is
Senior Demagio. Right then, we
just initiated a transaction that
didnít involve Uncle Sam that
could be profited from.
                                                            
Captain Fields picks up the certificate.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
So, in our case this would be
considered money.
                                                            
                       KANE
Not exactly. You see, in the DTC
there is know money exchanging
hands only certificates. So
therefore there is know paper
trail that the IRS could follow.
In our case weíll be exchanging or
trading our services or Charles
Reed will exchange his services as
a C.E.O., for Tonyís goods. So,
that certificate will be whatever
commodity, goods, services, or
product we seek to put down.
                                                            

83.

                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
Okay, so what would you trade?
                                                            
Bryon leans on desk with both hands.
                                                            
                       KILLS
Oil.
                                                            
Captain puts the certificate down.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
So, once you and I have exchanged
certificates then how am I to get
my services or goods?
                                                            
                       KILLS
Weíre obligated by the board to
have all transactions finalized
within twenty four hours.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
And if you donít.
                                                            
                       KILLS
You forfeit your seat on the board
to do business with anyone on the
international black market. In
other words youíll get black
listed.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
Well, we donít want that.
                                                            
                       KANE
No we donít.

The supervisor gets onto the side of the forklift and looks
over at the screen to review the orders the driver is
pulling.
                                                            
                       SUPERVISOR
Iíll need for you to pull the New
York account and get it ready to
be shipped out with the New
Orleans and L.A. accounts.
                                                            

85.

                       FORKLIFT DRIVER
So, what do you want me to do with
the order Iím pulling?
                                                            
The supervisor looks at the order on the screen.
                                                            
                       SUPERVISOR
Itís not scheduled to go out until
Monday, so drop it down. I need
the New York account pulled up and
ready to go.
                                                            
The forklift driver nods his head in agreement as the
supervisor steps down from the side of the forklift. He
walks away to get the orders prepared to ship out. Each
order is lined up for inspection. Heís inspecting the New
York account that is six pallets of tightly packed and
packaged BIC writing pens, which contains cocaine inside the
tubes checking the weight accuracy and quantity count. The
plant is in full operation as forklifts maneuvers throughout
the plant pulling and filling orders. The forklift driver
pulls into frame to drop off another pallet.
                                                            
                       SUPERVISOR
Letís go, letís go!! We have an
order to get out. The cargo plane
is on its way to pick up, now lets

inventory being passed back and
forth that way we can visually see
whatís exactly going on. Also see

goes on within the DTC. I mean as

up to exploit illegal activities.

joining us tonight. Iím sure we
all met yesterday during the board
meeting, so thereís really no need
to re-introduce ourselves.
However, I will make a roll call
to see if everyone is present.
                                                            
Carlos leans up and props his arms down onto the table.
                                                            
                       CARLOS
To all of our new members Iíll
explain the rules of the game. All
goods must be traded to the
highest bidder. The highest
bidder wins the trade. If any
trades are left on the table the
owner or owners of the
certificates must renegotiate his
or her offer to reach an agreement
to complete their deal. If the
owners are not able to come to a
resolution they are penalized and
must pay to the commission a
$10,000.00 fine, which must be
paid in full upon leaving. This
money is collected and paid across
the board to the board of
directors for their commitment to
bring you their services without
you having to pay taxes. So, to
get started Iíll ask that every
one open their briefcase please.
                                                            
                       CARLOS
I will start the trade by asking
Mr. Fernandez to share with the
board the items he brings to trade
this evening.

                       CAPTAIN FIELDS (Phone)
Kane, hey howís it going? Good,
good. Look here, I know you guys

95.

                       CAPTAIN FIELDS (cont'd)
over here on Fifth and Main and
all the guards are down, I need
you here right now to take a look
at this. Yeah.
                                                            
Capt. Fields hangs up the phone and walks around to the
investigation scene. He walks under the yellow tape to the
back of the truck and looks at the doors.

He walks around to the driver's side and pulls out a pen to
pick up a glove left on the floor, which he place in a
plastic bag and seals it.

He looks at the driver who's lying dead and picks up his
right wrist to see if there was signs of a struggle. He
walks around to the passenger side and looks at the door.

Camera pans around as Kane walks into the scene holding the
back of his head.
                                                            
                       KANE
Hey, whatís happening?
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
That was quick.
                                                            
                       KANE
Well I wasnít to far. So, whatís
going on?
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
A robbery. Looks like a
high-jacking.
                                                            
Kane rubs his head.
                                                            
                       KANE
Any witnesses?
                                                            
Capt. Fields walks away from the passenger side towards the
back where Kane follows behind him.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
Donít look like it.
                                                            
They stop at the rear of the truck.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
Looks like a clean getaway.
                                                            
Kane rubs his neck.
                                                            

96.

                       KANE
Okay, so why am I here.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
It seems like this Armor truck had
a lot of valuable goods in it
which came from your friend
Carlos. I was told that this
Armor truck had just picked up a
load from the DTC worth over
several million dollars. And
since you and Kills, are working
on the DiMaggio case I thought it
would be wise to include you guys.
Hopefully, the two of you could
pen point what person inside the
DiMaggio organization wanted to
highjack or rob the DTC.
                                                            
Kane props his hands on his side.
                                                            
                       KANE
And you donít think someone else
couldíve pulled this off?
                                                            
Capt. Fields and Kane walk away from the crime scene to the
Captains squad car where Capt. Fields tosses the glove into
his window.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
Nah, itís well planned. Just look
at it Kane, the robbers knew the
exact time to strike and they knew
exactly what to get. I mean this
is the cleanest shakedown Iíve
ever seen in my history as an
agent. The only thing thatís
dirty is the murders, everything
else is clean.
                                                            
Kane points at the sealed bag.
                                                            
                       KANE
So whatís that?
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
Just a glove I found on the
driverís side floor. I was going
to take it down to the lab and
have it analyzed and tested for
fibers to see if we can get some
sort of fingerprints from it.
                                                            

97.

Kane grabs the back of his head.
                                                            
                       KANE
Let me know what you come up with.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN FIELDS
Got you. Oh, and get that head of
yours checked out while youíre
here you got a bad bruise up
there!

Kane was captured lurking around
the DTC tonight, apparently he was
doing more surveillance of the
place. However, heís become a
pain in the ass, and Iím concerned
that what he may have discovered
might destroy us. So, before I
allow that Iíd rather get to the
root that causing the pain in my
ass and destroy it before it
destroys me.
                                                            
He slides a piece of paper over to the hit man with Kaneís

      (Pause)
Look Kane, I know this has become
a personal feud between you and
Carlos. And you want to get to

INT. THE GAME PLAN-HOLD UP THE VELTEX - DAY
                                                            
Kayce and her two friends STEPHANIE and MICHELLE are at a
hotel going over plans to hold up THE VELTEZ. Kayce is
sitting on the sofa with a blue print game plan on the table
mapping out how each person will enter the restaurant and
whoís role it is to do what. Stephanie and Michelle are

113.

sitting in front of the table. Kayce points her pen at the
number ONE on the map.
                                                            
                       KAYCE
Michelle, youíre number one. I
want you to enter the restaurant
first, to scope out the place, and
get a feel of the atmosphere. When
the host approaches you let them
know that youíre waiting on your
party to arrive so youíre not
ready to be seated.
                                                            
Kayce points at the number TWO.
                                                            
                       KAYCE
Stephanie, you're number two. I
want you to come in be seated at
table number seven. This is the
table that you specifically
request to be seated in, why
because this table gives us view
of the entire restaurants exit,
for a clean get away. Michelle
you remain where you're at, this
is your post, the door. You are
to watch the door and let every
one in. The Veltez is a very busy
place on any giving Sunday and the
most successful people dine here;
therefore, Michelle, The Veltez
will have to look like a normal
business day at the door. However,
once they're in, me and Stephanie
will do the rest.
                                                            
Kayce points to the number THREE.
                                                            
                       KAYCE
Number three will be me. I will
come into the restaurant and walk
over to table seven to meet
Stephanie, where I will give you
the signal to post up the door.
The signal will come when we make
our orders, as soon as you see the
waiter take our orders and walks
away thatís when Stephanie and I
will make our move, once we have
succeeded with the hold up I will
give you the signal to exit.
                                                            

114.

She points to the EXIT DOOR on the blueprint at the rear of
building.
                                                            
                       KAYCE (Cont'd)
Stephanie and I will depart out of
this door where the get away car
is parked. This hold up shouldn't
take us no longer than ten
minutes, get in, get the goods and
get out.
                                                            
She circles the exit door.

                       KILLS

wound. Bryon falls out of the chair onto the floor
unconscious. With sweat on his upper lip Tony wipes his
mouth and kneels down to Bryonís side. He pats Bryon down
removing his gun and wiretap. He takes the gun and gives it
to Raphael.
                                                            
                       TONY
Take him for a ride, and see to it
