About this submission
An ambitious but war-scarred junior reporter gets a big break covering a neo-Nazi attack. But when her reporting enables the group’s rise, she must confront again the trauma and guilt of war. Caught between the apocalyptic fantasies of the Nazis she’s tracking and the institutional blindness of her paper and the police, Jesse must face her nightmares, risk her career, and finally take a stand.
The characters and worlds in this script are drawn from my work as a war reporter and later investigating and exposing underground neo-Nazi terrorist cells operating in the US.
This is a second draft.
