LIABILITY (screenplay)

Cori Videri dies at age eighteen, purportedly, while participating in a research project to study brain functionality and the paranormal. Following her funeral, this government-funded program is shut down. Nine years later, Cori reemerges amid a CIA covert operation, acting as the liaison, to entrap an international terrorist who plans to initiate a global pandemic by releasing a deadly pathogen. The operation goes awry. Agents are blindsided and killed, along with Cori’s co-conspirator and lover. She is left traumatized, injured from a blow to her head, and in possession of a biochemical device. Fearing retribution from the terrorist group she betrayed, she escapes in a stolen vehicle to a remote location in the Sierra Mountains, in search of a haven. With dangerous tendencies and suffering from amnesia, Cori is either a beguiling heroine or villain –  an enigma even to herself.  

PANDORA’S BOX
“It was a vase, actually,
not a box. What a lovely
hoard of bad stuff to contain.”
Slater swirled his drink. “If
this box or vase was to contain
only bad things, then why, and who, slipped in Hope?”
“Intriguing.” Briard grabbed his foot,
massaging it.
“Satan,” said Ziger. “What a horrible
tease. For him to have thrown in Hope.”
