The Warden's List (Feature Film Screenplay)


Brian is a trained mercenary and a dedicated, but troubled ex-cop whose legal issues lead him to a crooked prison security team. After Brian gains the warden's trust, he is given an assignment to exterminate a list of inmates. The incentives for doing the deed is getting his badge back and having his legal issues disappear. With more questions than answers, Brian's problems get bigger when he finds out his estranged son is not only an inmate, but also a target on the hit list. Not sure who to trust, Brian now has to protect his secret, himself, and his son from the warden's plan as well as fellow inmates that want his son dead.

Our Review

'The Warden's List' by Karinthal T McCray, clearly takes up the themes of guilt and forgiveness. Both themes are stated in dialogue, which is the best way to express theme in screenwriting. And this theme is coupled with an interesting and refreshing plot with strong characters and unpredictable plot twists. The story is created by in a well-mapped small world (a prison), and all the different characters fit snugly into the plot. The stakes keep rising and the exposition of the story is revealed ever so gently yet consistently to leave the readers hooked at the end of every scene. An engaging one-sitting read.
