The Salton Sea script
Synopsis: After the murder of his beloved wife, a man (Val Kilmer) in search of redemption is set adrift in a world where nothing is as it seems. On his journey, he befriends slacker Jimmy "The Finn" (Peter Sarsgaard), becomes involved in rescuing his neighbor Colette (Deborah Kara Unger) from her own demons, and gets entangled in a web of deceit full of unexpected twists and turns.

The cashier looks up at the aforementioned FREAK, a frozen grin

plastered on his face.

DANNY (cont'd)

Take it from me, he ain't got no

cold. He's a cook. Look in his

kitchen and you'll find a whole

grocery list of unsavory ingredients.

INT. KITCHEN - NIGHT

TRACK DOWN the kitchen counter on various containers.

DANNY (V.O.)

Drain cleaner, hydrochloric acid,

match heads for red phosphorus,

ether and of course the cold

medicine .. that's for Ephedrene,

soon to become Methedrene

CONTINUE TRACKING to a series of BURNERS, BEAKERS and TUBING

DANNY (cont'd)

This guy's a regular Julia Child.

Problem is, I'll be even Miss Julia

fucks up the bouillabaisse from time to time.

The freaky cook sees something he doesn't like. His eyes widen.

DANNY (cont'd)

Oh-oh.

EXT. TRAILER - NIGHT

As the structure explodes.

INT. PARTY HOUSE - UNKNOWN

Thick blankets and tinfoil taped over the windows.

A huge container of empty beer cans, washed and neatly arranged.

Lines of crystal meth on a mirror as precisely arranged as Nails as the

Nuremberg rally.

A GROUP OF TWEAKERS in the middle of a binge.

Two skinny women, NANCY and Teresa bent over a drawer-full of neatly

folded socks on the living room floor. They stare at the drawer as if

they were pondering a Rembrandt.

NANCY:

It ain't right
