Logline: A man makes a terrible mistake and is locked into a terrible marriage and horrible employment at a prison, he is walking a thin line working with the institution and the cons, and his home life is corrupt and he has to find his escape. He finds a way.
Pitch: PATRICK NEAL is well educated in the arts; he leaves a posh University to teach in a male federal prison to appease his wife, (for her to be close to her family). Things turn sour for him at home, and the teaching position leads him to a major prison riot where he faces life threats for himself and his family.
He is subpoenaed to Supreme Court where he faces the MOB. A mystic aids him.
Act 2 summary.
Margaret finds a lover in her boredom, and Patrick is trying to develop relationships that are meaningful with the cons and outside friends. The prison has turned on Patrick, both the head of Security and the head cons. Most inmates, however, appreciate what Patrick is attempting to do for them, but when push comes to shove they show Patrick the line, and he should not cross it.
A massive riot develops after the inmate's privileges are taken away, (like the stripper that came into the institution to entertain them). The cons are mad as hell, the WARDEN of the institution wants discipline but gets rebellion from staff and inmates and the worst prison riot in the history of penal institutions erupts. Patrick is caught in the web of deceit and corruption. He becomes the CROWN witness in the riot with his observation reports, which leads Patrick into the Supreme Court to testify against the Mob. Meanwhile, Patrick has maintained his weekly visits with his mentor, Mrs. Patmore.
Mrs. Patmore encourages Patrick to develop meditative prayer, where he can connect with Christ himself. This develops for Patrick and he learns how to visualize and help manifest the living Christ into his life. Patrick discovers his wife is having an affair with a best friend MAX. Patrick is offered witness protection and a new identity, which he refuses, and the cons find ways to intimidate him against testifying against a scapegoat inmate.
Act 3 summary.
Patrick is subpoenaed to the Supreme Court, he has taken stress leave by his doctor’s orders, and he hasn’t taken the life threats lightly. A gangster follows his movements, even up to the courthouse, but Patrick peruses on with his guidance from the Master Jesus and Mrs. Patmore.
Patrick is determined to see justice prevail. As the court proceedings unravel Patrick finds his opportunity under strict examination and cross-examination to get to the truth, meanwhile a thug keeps appearing on the scene to intimidate Patrick right up to the end.

An Open Door is a suspense drama with a metaphysical twist. Starting as a very dark and foreboding story, it features a surprising upswing into light by the end. Our hero is trapped in a prison teaching position and has a family with debts and responsibilities. However, his relationship with his wife has deteriorated at the family home front and his job has turned from teaching, to becoming a Crown Witness for the worst prison riot ever, resulting in threats from the MOB. A metaphysical mentor then comes to his rescue guide to guide him out of harm’s way.
An Open Door - The Market
Not only can investing in film bring a lot of excitement, it has the potential to bring a large financial windfall.
- There is nothing more rewarding than investing in a motion picture that you truly believe in and then seeing it come to completion. And, investing in the motion picture industry, you can potentially earn a huge return on your investment.
-Movie Investments, 2007, http://www.movieinvestments.us/index.html.
A movie is the best investment one can make for the up-side potential vs. the risk.
- There is no business with manufacturing capital entry requirements as low as motion pictures where the potential return can be as unlimited over the short, medium and long terms.
- With new markets, such as China (1.2 billion new potential moviegoers) and India (900 million new potential English-speaking moviegoers), investors would be imprudent not to take a serious look at the potential rewards of movie investments at this time.

WHY INVEST IN THIS FILM?
AN OPEN DOOR FILM; is right on the pulse of why we require films that offer alternatives to a current society that is corrupted with representation in films that manifest themes of fear, violence, crime, and hate! Audiences are only provided with what the PULP FICTION writers are capable of conjuring up.
This script is accurate to true life experiences and resolves, a fantasy of someone’s imagination. This film has true life, with a mystical mentor that had the wisdom to express ways and opportunities of how to portray love, calm, overcoming, and bliss. The violence, fear, hate, crime, and injustice are still within the themes addressed in the script, but not where the audience is left being stuck.
Films have risk factors, often they do not achieve distribution. In our project AN OPEN DOOR FILM, a tremendous amount of networking has been accomplished. We have a budget to attend film festivals and pay for jobbers to find distribution. We will be piggybacking with other warm markets such as the music industry, community support groups, women’s groups, men’s groups, Christian Fellowship groups, social media, e-mails, and word of mouth. Accompanying this will be our own four-walling with premier showings of our film.
We also have prepared by an outside source the Comparative Film Report and the R.O.I. paper on our feature film. This was accomplished by selecting five previous films that were studied about their budgets and returns with projections of what our film, AN OPEN DOOR FILM, is capable of achieving.
