Barb Wire

Synopsis: In the early 21st century, the USA is in the wake of the Second Civil War. The whole country is in a constant state of emergency. What was formerly called the American Congress now rules the country with fascistic methods. There is only one free city left, Steel Harbor, a coastal California industrial town which is headquarters for the resistance. This is the home town of Barb Wire, owner of the Hammerhead nightclub. As times aren't good, Barb has a second job. She's a bounty hunter and you probably wouldn't want her after you. Barb's credo is to never take sides for anybody and that's the only way to survive these days in the crime-ridden streets of Steel Harbor. One evening, her former lover Axel Hood appears at the club asking for a favor to help him and his lover Cora D flee the country to Canada, Barb suddenly finds herself to be key player on high political stage. Now she has to take sides.

Save it for the U.N.

Doctor Corrina Devonshire, Cora D.,

whatever she calls herself,

it really doesn't matter...

She belongs to me.

She's connecting

with a resistance contact named Krebs.

He has the lenses

and will be helping her

leave the Congressional territories.

They're meeting in the free city,

Steel Harbor.

I'll contact

their local authorities immediately.

You see, I do my homework, citizen.

It's them. Let's go.

-Which one of you is Krebs?

-We meet him later.

Hurry.

I said, get to the back of the line!

-I'll take those weapons.

-Don't lose the clip.

Don't worry about it.

Dry martinis and a Cuban cigar.

You got it.

Bubbly on the house!

Please, leave it out.

Excuse me. Curly!

I'm still waiting

to hear from Miss Wire.

I conveyed your offer to her.

1500 Dollars to chop off

the legs of your ex-partner.

You must be joking.

Naturally she declined.

Miss Wire doesn't accept

this kind of job.

Please!

What?

My money's not good enough for her?

I will make my offer in person!

-If I were you, I wouldn't do that.

-Why?

Her private secretary Camille doesn't

have you in her appointment book.

-And she can be very mean.

-Let me through.

-You see?

- Time for a couple of dedications.

To Bobby from Colleen... The test

came back and everything's cool.

And from Samantha to Cal...

"You thieving murderous bastard!

If I ever see you again, I'll rip out

your eyes and pluck off your ears."

Damn, if that just don't thug

at my heart strings.

Now, here's a little rhythm

for you heartsick boys and girls.

Chanel No. 5. Am I correct?

Yes, you are.

When I smelled it,

I thought to myself...

"Charlie, now this is obviously

a woman of significant breeding."

And then I thought...

"I wonder if she'd like to do some?"

Breeding, that is. What do you
