Jim’s Rant For The Day. Cheap Chain Gang Movie.
Updated: Dec 18, 2021
In your minds eye picture this movie script I am beginning to write and see if I’ve got a good story to tell.
A Chain Gang of six men escaping prison around 1914 in the Southeast US in the heat of summer.
Their route is mostly uphill and they have no provisions. After running for several hours one collapses from heat stroke. The gang devises a means to carry him. They proceed on.
Soon a second passes out from carrying the first to fall. The pattern becomes clear to the remaining healthy – they aren’t going to make it. Drastic people do drastic things and so did they. They found a hatchet and cut the chained limbs off of the two unconscious ones. They bandaged them the best they could and moved on.
Then they discovered that the more runners they lose the heavier the chains get. All of this was happening as they got more and more weaker. This is where I am stumped. I don’t know how the script ends. Any ideas?
Perhaps I can watch the Turkey collapse, then the derivatives crashing, then another country collapsing, then another . . . Oh god, I'm too scared to open my eyes! Just tell me how it all ends . . . please.
