Vigilante Knights

Twin siblings experience a violent tragedy in childhood. Years later, they each come to the same conclusion: the law as it stands DOESN'T WORK! One chooses to enact change by becoming a decorated detective, the other by becoming something else entirely - a brutal vigilante! Their paths ultimately cross leading to a showdown with the law, life-altering self sacrifice, and a realization that the law is both society's blessing AND society's curse...

"Why won't anyone help us!? Daddy is hurting mommy again!" I run from door to door in our apartment complex, dragging my twin in tow. He blindly follows, non-responsive, as if he's not even present. I hear people inside, I hear t.v.'s, I hear dogs barking... I can hear my mother's cries even though we're all the way down the hall. No one opens the door. No one helps. "Someone help us, PLEASE!!" I hear a loud pop. The cries and screaming stops. The silence is deafening.  I awake shaken and in tears.  It's the same dream every night for me - 15 yrs and counting...

The End
