infinite justice

by Andrew G. Watters

SALMAN is the king of Saudi Arabia.  MOHAMMAD is the crown prince.  One day, King Salman is presented with evidence that the crown prince ordered the murder of a Saudi-American journalist without the king’s permission.  Meanwhile, the U.S. government summons the Saudi ambassador to the White House, where the President accuses the Saudi government of murdering the journalist and presents electronic intercepts of senior Saudi officials showing beyond any doubt that Mohammad, supported by his extremely loyal Saudi intelligence agency, orchestrated the murder.  The murder fits with a pattern of disappearances of Saudi dissidents and journalists in recent years, apparently stemming from the kingdom’s efforts to crush opposition to the powerful Saudi royal family.  Rather than accept responsibility for the crime, King Salman protects his son and denies any involvement in the incident.  The U.S. President, himself a somewhat erratic individual, surprises everyone by ordering the cessation of diplomatic relations with the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and the suspension of arms sales as well.  The President, anticipating that Iran will finally make good on its threats to invade and take over Saudi Arabia, makes a grand bargain with Israel, Jordan, Iraq, and Kuwait for the construction of American military bases in the Middle East as a stabilizing force.  The CIA goes a step further and plants a computer virus in military hardware sold to Saudi Arabia, disguising it as a software update without disclosing that it includes a “kill switch” that will shut off the weapons systems of the equipment on demand.  The first domino to fall is that Iran, sensing an opportunity, invades Iraq in an effort to create the United Islamic Republic.  The U.S. military retreats to Kuwait and Jordan rather than get into a prolonged ground war.  Iran/UIR succeeds, leaving King Salman feeling vulnerable to the south.  As the UIR reinforces its position in Iraq, King Salman finds himself brought to the bargaining table.  The President gives him an ultimatum: hand over the crown prince to the International Criminal Court for prosecution of his crimes against humanity, or there will be no military assistance in the upcoming war with the UIR.  Once again, King Salman fails to do the right thing, and he shelters his son instead of taking responsibility.  The powerful Saudi military does not want to fight the UIR on its own.  As a result, the President negotiates behind the scenes with the senior Saudi military officers to execute a coup and depose the Saudi monarchy in order to install a Western-style democracy.  As UIR is about to invade, the coup succeeds.  The Saudi military delivers the crown prince to the International Criminal Court, where he is tried and convicted of crimes against humanity stemming from his abuse of consular privileges in the journalist’s murder.  Instead of invading Saudi Arabia, UIR is faced on three sides by opposing forces and they decide to maintain the status quo indefinitely.  The situation is gradually defused over several months, leaving a stable if undesirable power balance in the region.  The President is re-elected due to this astute handling of the entire situation.  Finally, King Abdullah II of Jordan grants the entire Saudi royal family asylum, and they leave Saudi Arabia for new lives as civilians in Jordan.

black collar

GWEN is a prominent defense attorney specializing in aggressively litigated Federal cases, most of them involving racketeering and white collar crime.  NANCY is a FBI agent who frequently testifies against Gwen’s clients.  While not violating any guidelines on fraternization with the opposing side, they do play in a tribute band together as co-lead guitarists and they are collegial with each other.  Little does Nancy know, Gwen leads a double life as a killer for hire who eliminates witnesses in her clients’ cases for vast amounts of money, which she launders and uses to endow scholarships at a local music conservatory.  In one case that Gwen and Nancy are both working on, Nancy’s boss begins to suspect that Gwen is an assassin.  The story traces themes of friendship, distrust, and betrayal as Nancy struggles to come to terms with Gwen’s possible dark side, and then investigate her.  The film concludes in an action-packed set piece where Nancy goes to arrest Gwen, and the two of them have to face each other and decide who gets to live, and who has to die.

tomorrow

BEN is a professional counterfeiter who sells fake bills on the dark web in return for Bitcoin.  He constantly struggles with the guilt of what he is doing.  He leads a double life as a musician, and he hopes to make it in music composition so he can leave the criminal life behind.  One day, he notices that he is under significant surveillance, presumably by the feds.  He tries to keep a low profile while juggling his illegal transactions to avoid any glaring offenses, so he focuses on music and appearing to be a struggling composer– which is hard for him.  The surveillance appears to dissipate after about forty-five days, and Ben thinks he is in the clear.  However, he’s found that he enjoyed the musician lifestyle so much that he makes a renewed effort to transition to it. He sells off his holdings in Bitcoin and launders the proceeds by investing them into real estate.  Believing that he has finally left the counterfeiting behind, Ben quits the life and forms a band to play his compositions.  He’s loving it until he discovers that his bandmates also may be feds.  The film traces Ben’s paranoia in a character study in which he just doesn’t know what the government is going to do.  Is he still under investigation? Will they charge him?  How could they do this now that he has left the business?  Ben finds himself getting more and more paranoid, and isolating himself from people he thinks could be feds.  Finally, he calls his lawyer and admits everything due to the guilt he suffers from years of a life of crime.  The film closes with Ben being arrested, not for his counterfeiting, but for money laundering due to investments in real estate with counterfeiting proceeds.  Ben makes a plea deal and goes to prison for a 20-year term, where he focuses on music composition and plays lead guitar in the prison band.

lisa

by Andrew G. Watters

ARTHUR is a 40 year-old man who has been single for ten years.  He’s a successful computer programmer and hardware engineer with a brilliant creative drive, but otherwise he leads a relatively normal life.  He’s super lonely due to the isolation he experiences from work and from being kind of an introvert.  When he has extra money, he occasionally spends it on high class escorts in an effort to experience some companionship.  In the first act, the film tells the story of his relationship with LISA in college through a series of flashbacks.  He ultimately broke up with Lisa because she was his first girlfriend and he didn’t know what relationships were supposed to be like.  The rest of his life and his trail of failed dating and relationships convinces him that the breakup with Lisa was the biggest mistake of his life.  In the second act, Arthur decides he’s had enough of being alone.  After several days of a Mountain Dew-fueled hackathon while Arthur is supposedly on vacation, he invents a prototype android companion modeled on Lisa.  Arthur shows the android his photo albums and talks to it about Lisa in an effort to get the android to model itself on Lisa.  Although Arthur finds the android physically satisfying, it lacks Lisa’s winning personality.  In the third act, he concludes that nothing can replace Lisa, so he keeps looking.  He gets rich selling android companions to other men who are in similar situations.  The film closes with Arthur still alone.
