This sounds so good!

Edited to add: What am I saying, they all sound good! LOL I am just struck with how interesting this sounds compared to my boring one!

Endgame

A mafia father wants his son freed; a dirty cop wants his cut.  The cost increases the longer they refuse to budge in a tense negotiation. 

First time writing a thriller!  It was... not... thrilling.  Hoping this turned out better than my attempt at polisat!
I like how your logline turned out!

LOL, the logline may be my favorite part of the entire screenplay. And yours sounds awesome! I still think it's funny we both came up with inventors, but on completely different ways.
