The 'missing' Da Vinci Urn has turned up in a suburban auction house where it's true value remains unknown, except by a Hong Kong art dealer with connections to Triad gangs. To avoid drawing attention to the urn he hires a local gangster to buy it on his behalf. The local gangster outsources it to two junkies in his employment. The gangster's two (stripper) girlfriends suspect something is up and try and steal it from the junkies. When the Hong Kong art dealer realizes he's been double and triple crossed he flies in to sort it out himself with the aid of a health conscious hitman.

We will be filming a read through of the script which will be edited into a 4-5 minute pitch video for promotional purposes. Being selected for this pitch video is no guarantee of being selected for that role, if the film actually proceeds. The Da Vinci Urn, will be a low budget film with almost no special effects.

Over the weekend of Saturday/Sunday 15-16 December we will be filming two feature film script read throughs at the same venue.
