FTI’s PAC Script Lab is pleased to present a public reading of a new feature film script, THE KILLING TREE by Ben Young from an original idea by Andy Froemke & Thomas G.Lemmer.
To catch a deranged killer from the future, an obsessed detective must confront her ghosts from the past.
After losing her family in a tragic accident, career driven detective Vivian Paige dives head first into a serial murder case that’s been terrorising the city. When she turns up new evidence she discovers an impossible truth that will turn her allies against her and force her to question everything she’s ever believed in. Set in the future, The Killing Tree is a gritty sci-fi/thriller about obsession, revenge and the age old question of nature vs nurture.
