IMAGINE THE MOVIE SICARRIO ONLY OUR AMERICAN DEA AGENT HAS GONE ROGUE THIS TIME TO SAVE A CHILD STOLEN FROM A BIRTHDAY PARTY 

Set against the desert and mountains of southern Mexico, our story starts from a military drone as it faces downward to a stretch of sparse highway, a truck on fire in the ditch to the left, and a woman in black standing in the middle of the highway.   We hear the commanders voice from the command center, a trailer some forty miles away. ¨Now what the heck is she doing?¨  The drone pilot sitting in front, a young woman, answers ´Shes standing sir, on the road´¨.  Ýa no kidding, Jesus, can she just for once not go off into who knows where for who knows why?

 

From a far distance away we see a school bus coming towards Ashley´s lone figure dark against the desert around her,  and from road level she begins to wave the bus down.  Slowly it stops and Ashley, playing our rogue agent, gets on the bus, where a priest, a nun, a young couple, and an old farmer now stare silently at her.  ´Sorry, sorry, I know this looks kinda bad but I really need you to drive me somewhere right now.   Do you speak english, anyone¨?   The young nun says ¨I do¨.  ¨Ok, well heres a bunch of money, a donation to your church¨.  She hands the priest an envelope she found in the burning truck.  He looks at the cash and nods to the driver to go. 

IF ONLY LIFE WERE REALLY LIKE THIS

The film that unfolds is the story of Ashley on this bus winding through the mountains, being tracked by her commander and his drone, being chased by a convoy of grey vehicles and Marines and Federales, and with her DEA partner, a good looking young guy in a FAST AND FURIOUS type car, racing to help her with whatever and however he can. 

Ashley and the bus after winding through the cactus cut roads up into the mountains, finally comes to an abandoned Spanish style small colonial puebla.   She parks the bus behind a row of trees and tells the bus people to just wait ten minutes, and off she goes gun readied in hands, through the trees and to what looks like an old cantina.   There with total precision and conviction, pop pop, pop pop, pop, she takes down five sex traffickers in short order (Ralf Koch, one of the most badass stunt dudes on one of the most sought after stunt teams in the business, Avengers, Hunger Games, is gonna make sure we look super pro with our action gun stuff).  https://www.ralfstunts.com/

One note of importance the bad guys are not all Mexican.  As a matter of fact of the six Ashley takes down, we are going to have actors who represent the reality of the industry, so, mostly the guys taken down are going to be white, one will be Asian maybe, one African, the point being we are not making a Mexico statement, we are making world community statement but set in Mexico where alot of kids get stolen.  

 

Our story finds its conclusion as Ashley finds a room where seven children are chained to some old pipes (some cops we know shared that story with us).   One of those kids is her daughters best friend who, as we see earlier in the film, was stolen from her daughters birthday party from a quiet dirt street in the middle of the day when one would least expect it.  

Our Sicarrio type adventure comes to a close with Ashley racing around a dry lake bed letting her daughter´s best friend flies a kite from the window of her partner´s car while she gives the drone the finger.  Her partner rides back to town with the other kids on the bus singing ´The wheels on the bus go round and round, round and round, etc.

AND IN THE FOUR AND A HALF MINUTES IT TOOK TO WATCH THIS

Our film concludes like this though:

The premise of our film, the hook, the message that is at the center of all our campaigns, is delivered at the end when all the actors sitting together will say this:

´What you just watched is a total fantasy.  This will never happen in real life but what does happen in real life is that in the four and a half minutes it took you to watch this another 680 kids under the age of 12 were just raped somewhere in the world for money.  That happens every day, all day long, to the total of 32 billion dollars´
