as we knew it ended, not with the bang that most had feared but with an
almost indiscernible whimper. Now, a handful of human “leftovers” have
gathered in Hollywood, California to live out the remainder of their lives
among all of the treasures
and technology of the past.
Evan Frost (40) and Elena Padilla (28) have settled together into an
existence that is almost “normal.” They live in a grand estate on
Mulholland Drive. Elena is eight months pregnant with their child. With
them are: Booker Hill (16), a young black man with a
genius IQ, Katie (4) and Angelina Suarez (60) a refuge from Mexico. They
are among only 15 humans who have found their way into the area. By all
than 1,000 people remain in the world following a mysterious apocalyptic
event that occurred three years earlier.
As the humans go on with their lives, new predators emerge to challenge
the survivor’s title as dominant species. From their initial deadly
encounter with two
African lions at the Museum of Natural History, the survivors soon learn
that hundreds of lions have been breeding and have established residence
in the Los
Angeles area. So begins the cat and mouse game of survival.
To add to the dilemma, while the lions wreck their bloody havoc among the
survivors, the humans learn that they also have more than one killer among
them of the two-legged kind. Lonnie Wilkins (33) returns after a two-year
exile. With him, Lonnie brings
another survivor, Mary Hardesty (18). Lonnie soon attempts to claim Elena
as his own by feeding Evan and Booker to the lions. During a hair-raising
with the lions at the estate, Lonnie is killed. That event becomes a
catalyst to force the survivors to realize that with their limited
numbers, they cannot
create a viable population and remain the dominant species.
With the help of a beautiful Creole girl, Coralie Leger (17) a plan is
quickly forged to commandeer a boat and flee to Hawaii where another 28
survivors also live. With the lions hot on their heels, the remaining
humans set sail to a new life. However, as the voyage unfolds, Booker
discovers that one of the survivors is a serial killer, intent upon
preying on “fresh meat” in their new home in paradise.
Bio: After years of procrastination, Larry finally decided about four
years ago to pursue his desire to be a screenwriter. Once the process was
in motion, there
was no turning back. With an absence in San Jose, California, of available
feedback from other screenwriters, Larry helped found the Silicon Valley
Screenwriter’s Association, now affiliated with the American Screenwriters
Association. With input from other screenwriters, seminars, and contests
Larry steadily honed his craft. Along the way, he created a body of work
of eleven scripts in various genres.
A product of Southern California’s San Fernando Valley, Larry grew up
around movies and the film industry. His first job as a kid was hauling
film cans to the projection room of a local theater in exchange for free
admittance. Later, after spending three years in the U.S. Army, and a year
in Vietnam, Larry became a history major, and attended Pierce College and
California State University, Northridge.
Today, Larry lives in Sparks, Nevada. He’s a Security Consultant with a
California-based company. He divides his time between work, screenwriting,
and exploring Northern Nevada. Divorced with no children, Larry’s great
passion continues to be movies.
