Ms. 45

Synopsis: In Manhattan, Thana is a timid and mute woman that works as a seamstress in the fashion industry and spends most of her idle time at home. One night, she gets raped in an alley while going back home after hours and when she arrives at home, she gets raped again by another criminal. However, she reacts and bludgeons the assaulter to his death with a flatiron. The disturbed Thana loses her sanity and uses a .45 caliber pistol to shoot men on the streets of New York. She dresses suggestively and roams the dark streets alone, wreaking vengeance upon anyone who tries to take advantage of her. Eventually, her secret life overflows into her regular life in the fashion industry.

Come on out!

Phil, you naughty dog!

Now you get out of there!

Right now!

I think I ought to call Dr. Fisher.

You look very bad.

You really do.

I'm going to call the doctor.

Alright, we'll see about it.

What's the matter with you?

What happened to you?

Cause you're mute, you dress like that?

Hey mister? Nickel?

Dime? Anything?

Go f*ck yourself.

Harold's Incorporated.

Thana, I guess what I'm trying

to say is I'm concerned about you.

You insist that you're feeling better,

but still your work these past

few days has not been up to par.

On top of scorching the silk blouse,

you sewed only 2 cuff buttons

instead of 3 on all the Prince suits.

I had to do have them all recalled.

Darling,

I realize that you are working

under a tremendous handicap.

Which is precisely why

you have to try harder

that a normal person.

You know we all love you here.

You know we all want you to do well.

So promise me

you'll get back on the track.

Show more interest in your work.

More spirit.

Be like the other girls.

There's the Halloween party on the 31st.

All of us are going.

You should come too.

There'll be boys your own age.

You'll enjoy yourself.

You'll have fun.

Good.

I believe you will.

Now tell Laurie to come in

here for a minute, please.

Now?

Okay, I'll be right there.

Look, I'll get back to you in

about fifteen minutes.

Thana, come here.

Why did Albert want to see

you in his office? Is he upset?

What's wrong?

Can I have the ashtray? Thank you.

Don't you like your sandwich?

It's terrible.

You know, I don't know why

we keep coming to this place?

I don't either.

We barely have time for coffee now.

Hey Mrs. Onassis?

What about the coffee we ordered?

I'll give it to you right now.

No skip the coffee. Just give us the check.
