Squirrel Season

Squirrel Season- Synopsis

City slickers meet country hick killers in this tale of revenge gone bad.
When Peter Nolan cans his affair with his intern Samantha and goes back to his wife, Samantha vows to have him killed off, only to end up dead when Peter retaliates as he battles the demise of his marriage and his squirrel infestation at his country home in Atlanta, Georgia.

We find Peter Nolan at his downtown office in A-Town. He is getting it on with his sexy young intern Samantha. His wife Lori is busy house hunting in the country. She finds the perfect home, a ten acre Plantation estate which they promptly make an offer on. Little do they know that local squirrels have also taken up residence in the attic.

Peter dumps Samantha but she is more than pissed and vows to get her revenge on him. She hires a contract killer to kill Peter. Peter has his own problems dealing with the move, the squirrels and his demanding wife. Their relationship slowly deteriorates as the house begins to come apart, their relationship strained as Peter gets caught in lies, gets enraged by the squirrels and slowly loses his slick demeanor and becomes a raging tyrant, obsessed to kill the squirrels and his former lover.

After several failed attempts on Peter’s life, the realization that somebody is trying to kill him settles in and Peter hires a local exterminator Willy St James, a Bible pounding, ex-sniper Veteran to kill Samantha off. They vow complete secrecy but Willy is a local fixture and everywhere he goes he is recognized and everybody wants to know his business.

Willy kills Samantha by planting some roaches in her apartment and goes back to exterminate them and her.

The boys get caught and are sent to the Penetentiary for fifteen years. Peters life as he knew it has ended and he begins a new life.
