In Training

In this action/drama a mysterious Trina brings a hot bartender, Nate, “home” to her makeshift bedroom inside a warehouse for a hook up. Before they can get started however, Nate notices major bruising, scars and fresh wounds all over Trina’s body. The questions about her beaten body propels Trina into a drunken, careless monologue about her involvement with a top secret assassination company. Not believing her Nate leaves when Trina takes one swig too much of whiskey and runs away to vomit.

Trina returns to a now Nate-less warehouse and spots a wallet presumably left behind by the escaped bartender. Suddenly, the lights go out and Trina is literally blown away by the force of a foot to her chest. The foot belongs to an assassin woman, clad in black. Trina and the assassin woman face off in an exciting display of hand-to-hand combat. The assassin woman is taken down when Trina buys enough time to fetch her dart gun. A dart to the chest immediately knocks her out cold.

Just then, a bad ass woman in red steps out of the darkness revealing herself to Trina who responds knowingly, “Boss”. Boss proceeds to explain to Trina that her messy mistake of sharing forbidden secrets with Nate will cost her her freedom and Nate’s life. “The company owns you” Boss explains.

Immediately, the door opens and Nate walks back in hoping only to retrieve his wallet and finds himself in immense danger. Boss decides its time for Trina’s first ever “job”, her fist kill, and gives her own gun to Trina in order to “take care of” Nate. Boss tells the story of her own first kill as Trina considers what she is about to do. At the last moment, Trina turns the gun on Boss saying “…I always have a choice”. Boss, a seasoned assassin, effortless takes the gun back and is about to shoot Trina when ZIP! A dart from behind sticks Boss in the back of her neck.

Nate has shot Boss with the dart gun, saving Trina. The two must take off together, both now on the run from whatever pending peril surely awaits them.
