Ava is a short fictional film about an assassin for the government set in a world where everyone must pay tax to survive. This law was put in place to ensure humanity’s survival against over population, a law Ava has put her life on the line for. The film focuses on the encounter between Ava and one of her targets, Thomas. Thomas was once an assassin like her, who discovered tax law is corrupt and used for the governments political gain. The film discusses whether the system, as inhumane as it seems, has proved it works. Is it worth covering up the truth for the benefit of humanities long term survival? Or is it the right thing to do, exposing the corruption? Knowing it may endanger our planet.

This film has an incredibly talented crew behind it. Each member has been carefully selected with professional experience in each of their respected fields. This project is an ambitious and exciting film which will be submitted to various festivals across the country and possibly abroad.

Ava

Ava is a trained killer, well educated, and manipulative. She believes tax law is a necessary evil, unbiased and fair. Her true desire is to leave a foot print in the world, to be remembered. She longs for it deeply, determined to find it. Ava may be a killer but she isn't without heart, she pities her victims but her strong belief in the system keeps her going.

Females, aged 22 to 35

Thomas

Thomas was once an assassin for the government. Like Ava, he was a true believer in the system who discovered evidence proving the corruption of tax law. Betrayed and blinded by revenge, Thomas believes his destiny is to start a revolution, to fight back against the lies and deceit. Thomas is no merciless killer but he is capable, and trained to do so. He has a soft spot for tax agents and is determined to expose the truth in hope of recruiting them to help fight back.

Males, aged 25 to 50

Olivia

Olivia was once a data analyst for the government, her job was to find information and help track down targets for assassins. Her curiosity led her to the depths of the system where she discovered the corruption. With her experience of tracking down targets, she decided to run and hide, buying herself as much time possible so she can use her talents to gather evidence against the system. She is terrified of what lurks round the corner, knowing her days are numbered.

Females, aged 20 to 45

Civil Servant

She is in her late 50s, half moon spectacles and a short haircut typical to this brand of civil servant. She poses as harmless, kind and sympathetic towards her agents, simply briefing them of their next targets, but she knows far more than she lets on. Respected by all tax agents, they refuse to question her, politely accepting her instructions but theres something intimidating about her... she just makes your skin crawl.

Females, aged 50 to 70

James

James is the wealthy owner of a hotel that overlooks his collection of boats. He is a confident man, dating more than one person at a time, usually just for sex or other perks. Typically he will do anything to have sex with someone. He is intelligent and knows the system well. Guilty of tax evasion, he is reaping the benefits, using his money to impress woman. He is so confident he has become reckless, in danger of the consequences.

Males, aged 20 to 40
