Recourse

“Officer Saren has always believed in the law. Now he will test it.”

An Action/Thriller short film from the team that brought you ZomCo, Civvy Street and Dark Fables, about how one officer will push the limits of the law to clean up the community.

It started with a simple idea of an all in one follow shot through a break away door, into a drug den and end on the snapping of a perp’s arm; Recourse was born.

Milestone moments and events that would happen in the story where placed in to a rough outline, as writer Keith Lewis took my random garbles of shot ideas, character traits and story moments into a large bag and beat them into a working screen play. This story is one of 3 truths, making a stand, bending the rules and living with the consequences. Officer Peter Saren is a man that believes in the system and the law and order approach towards the world. He joined the force to protect the community and champion justice. After seeing too many crimes and too many criminals get away uncontested, he decides to take matters into his own hands, leading to corruption, violence and vengeance his only recourse.

“At his best, man is the noblest of all animals; separated from law and justice, he is the worst.” Aristotle.
