Road to Nowhere

Synopsis: There's a murky tenuous balance between reality and fiction; particularly when it involves a beautiful young woman, murder, a powerful politico, a missing fortune and suicide. A passionate filmmaker creating a film based upon a true crime casts an unknown mysterious young woman bearing a disturbing resemblance to the femme fatale in the story. Unsuspectingly, he finds himself drawn into a complex web of haunting intrigue, obsessed with the woman, the crime, her possibly notorious past and the disturbing complexity between art and truth. From the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina to Verona, Rome and London, new truths are revealed and clues to other crimes and passions, darker and even more complex are uncovered.

I'm some sort of cop or something.

I just kind of play around

with statistics and numbers and


Yes, ma'am,

those too.

When Mitch first told me the story,

I said this sounds like the film noir of our dreams.

Don't ever use

that word again.


Um, so you really

want to make our movie?

Not want to. Going to.

Everyone here at Tiger's Den

believes this will be Mitchell Haven's masterpiece.

We're excited.

Well, okay.

All we can do now

is f*ck it up.

And we will.

Are you on Spacebook

or My Face?


Take a look at this.

I saw Hilary Swank

on television once...

and she said that basically you just

get your head shot and your reel...

in front of as many people as possible

and as cheaply as possible,

and that's what I'm doing.

So if you need an actress,

then come visit

Does she have

any Cuban blood? Yeah!

It says that her mother

is Puerto Rican.

God help us.

She is Velma Duran.

You're thinking like

a guy from Hollywood.

We're missing


Something that cuts

against the grain, you know,


that brings Velma Duran to life.

Depending on

what article you read,

she's either

the innocent victim or the cause of it all.

You know, folks said she was the nicest

bunch of girls you'd have ever wanted to meet.

You do decks and scripts?

I was a park ranger

in the Smoky Mountains for a couple of years.

Anybody from a thousand miles

around there would've known

about the Taschen case.

What were you saying

about Velma again?

Probably just another

corrupt politico.


Thanks for your input. D Wait.

Did you know

Velma Duran?


maybe I've exaggerated just a bit.

She was the kid sister

of one of my buddies on the force.

Um, she was trouble

pretty much though from the start.
