  1. “(protagonist)… look to collect what he’s owed while protecting his boss,”

    This is the logline for the movie? Is this the original pitch…or what they wound up with between principle and post? Given the cinematic limited range of ideas, a productions is often emended by the time it reaches the mid-point. Here, either that or a shocking twist that will turn the narrative structure toward a surprising denouement. Otherwise, based on the premise at hand, what’s the point of this film, really? There must something the preamble withholding; if not, there should be.
