Writer Statement

I decided to write this after being diagnosed with cervical cancer last year and immediately having it removed and being cancer free. In a few weeks there was an abundance of emotions I went thru and just like that - it was over. I learned that this is a version of cancer that isn't really shown on TV. TV is bald head and dead - but a lot of people get it removed and then every 6 months have the fear of death for a few weeks. This script is different as it's about an assassin being powerless when having to face her own mortality when her career thrives on the power she holds choosing who lives and who dies.
