This is the first in a possible series of books designed specifically to support the independent filmmaking and screenwriting community. Using the MWP Imprint, the world’s premiere publisher of film books, and the concept, GREAT UNPRODUCED FILM SCRIPTS™, we will introduce new, highly viable, commercial scripts to the general public, film investors and producers with the intentions that these interested parties will find each other. No longer need a script be shopped around for months, or even years. Now it can be made available – before it is made – to anyone interested.
Nick Best is living the good life on a beach in Bali – thousands of miles from the expectations laid on him by his billionaire father – when his brother Eddie shows up to bring him home.
But Eddie is soon seduced by Bali, and by Shakti, a beautiful apprentice to a mysterious shaman. As Eddie becomes obsessed with ritual magic, Nick must try to save his brother from madness, and save Bali from the cataclysmic disaster revealed in Eddie’s dark visions. In doing so, Nick finds the courage to accept real love, find his place in the world, and fulfill his destiny.
Two brothers reconcile their differences through the beauty and magic of Bali.
