About this film:

PRODUCER: Christian Chapra

"One Shot" is a production brought to you by W&C Pictures. Based in Greater Boston, W&C Pictures draws upon a huge range of talent from the entire Commonwealth of Massachusetts, from cast to crew to post-production. Our fictional story highlights a very real, and terrifying disease: cancer.

"One Shot" is the story of Detective Jean Davidson, a serious and dedicated member of the metropolitan Trimountaine police department. Early in her career, she suffered the tragedy of her husband and young son murdered during a botched home invasion. Overwhelmed with grief, she was approached by the head of the Amarok crime family. Powerful, yet untouchable, Mr. Amarok expressed his sympathies, and suggested maybe the apprehended home invaders might never see trial. As the trial was merely a formality, and simple incarceration was not enough, Jean agreed, entering into a low-key relationship with this criminal family. Jean's star continued to rise, becoming the most decorated, and revered officer in the department. Our story begins 15 years later with a drug bust that turned fatal. Jean was shot in the shoulder. The assailant was not so lucky, as Jean killed him with a single bullet to the head. At the hospital, she mentions to her physician that she experienced some abdominal pain for the first time. The doctor comes back, but the expected case of high blood pressure, or stress, or hard living assumed the much more sinister diagnosis of cancer. Ovarian cancer. They found it too late. She has perhaps 30 days to live. Rocked by this news, she vows to not tell anyone, and live out her last days on her own terms. Jean begins a journey filled with hope, and terrifying revelations which make her question her entire life, and career. Will she die filled with regret? Or will she choose to fight for her dignity, and justice?

We are looking to raise $50,000. We want to shoot in the spring of 2017.
