Sentenced to Pain


“Sentenced to Pain”

1-hour TV drama pilot.  

A victimized daughter, sentenced for killing her predatory uncle, trains her uncle’s defenseless victims in prison, led by her vengeful mother.

FAITH ends in a prison ruled by LEXA, where MEG becomes Faith’s cellmate and her only friend. Faith collides with BONES whose boss, CRYSTAL runs one of the three blocks in this prison while Lexa schemes with illegal prison cage fights. Bones hits on HELMET, one of SKULL’s men who almost kills her when Faith intervenes, saves Bones, and teaches Helmet a lesson.

Helmet provokes Faith into a fight in which Faith kills him, which sends Skull into Defcon two, demanding from RAZOR to take care of Faith at any price. Faith never forgave Lexa, her mother, that she testified against her. Razor lures Faith into a trap where Crystal and her gang join Faith and turn the trap into a battle royal. Lexa confronts Faith with her brother VAN, in a coma, because of Faith’s attack on her uncle and Faith finds her friends, raped by Skull, which projectiles her into a match against Skull.

Back in her cell, Faith finds Meg, abused by Faith’s long-year trainer Van, who wants revenge for his bulldozed face and money he lost when Faith killed his pedophile business-partner. This leaves Faith only one option, she joins Crystal with a simple request, “Teach me how to kill my brother.”
