Overview

RELUCTANT BOMBMAKER is a suspense thriller screenplay.

In LA, a tech-savvy American man and a Muslim exotic dancer are held hostage under cruel circumstances to make bombs for a newly-awakened domestic terrorist cell.

The American is Harkin, a shy, computer-savvy loner, who is dragged to a gentlemen’s club by his office buds and becomes surprisingly infatuated with Eva, a beautiful Arabian exotic dancer. After a lap dance with her goes embarrassingly wrong, Harkin splits through the back door. Eva runs after him, but is kidnapped by some mysterious men in a white van who get away. Harkin thinks one of the men sees him. For days he remains paranoid suspecting all white vans are out to get him. His paranoia becomes real when the mysterious men conduct a home invasion robbery and take him away as a hostage.

Thereupon, he is shuttled with Eva among three hideouts as the secretive men divulge the details of their diabolical scheme. When their bomb maker is captured in a Homeland Security raid, Harkin is ordered to take his place. When he refuses, they threaten to mutilate Eva, but Harkin offers himself instead. What follows is not only his fight for survival, but a quest to save Eva, the sheik and create an unexpected surprise for the perpetrators.
