It would be a movie that shows the depths of insanity the "in crowd" induces in it's new members. Hollywood and their tenticles of madness, drugs, sex and violence.

At this point James Marshall Jones takes vengeance into his own hands. He dips away from the paparazzi after a dinner party. Sneaks around and buys an illegal gun off of a street thug. He devises a plan to get into the building where he knows damn well his wife is being drugged and f*cked. He breaks in with a sword and a handgun. Shoots the security guard.

A gray haired bald headed wig is just finishing an act on his wife. Shes drugged to hell and back. He walks up and puts his gun up to the suited gray haired man and says "give me one reason why I shouldn't blow your head off". In that moment the big big puts his gun to James's head and says "give me one reason why I shouldn't blow your head off". Quickly James shoots the man in the head and ducks as the big wig shoots and misses. James grabs at his gun and shoots the big wig. The big wig falls to the ground and James grabs at Jessi and begs asking if shes ok. She is ok but they get up and the big wig is gone. James and Jessi get the hell out of the building and and desperately try to get to the car as hes helping her drugged up body out of the building and shes crying. They are almost to the car when the big wig is right there. James doesnt have his gun. He pulls his knife out and the big wig shoots him in the leg and he goes down. She jumps on top of him and pleads begging for the big wig to stop. The big wig walks up to her and slaps her in the face and screams "shut the f*ck up" and grabs her and throws her to the side.
"you no talent bum, don't you ever double cross me again you goddamn hick. I'm gonna shoot you and your wife in this dark alley and then go back up and get your gun and put it in your hands. You want the bullet in your face? Huh?"
Suddenly in the last desperate seconds hes about to shoot James in the face when suddenly the big wig gets a big hunter's knife in his back and goes down. It's Ronnie. Ronnie had been stalking James Marshall Jones all night because he was afraid something was eerily wrong all night. Ronnie saves their lives.
Ronnie quickly gets them out of town to the country where they go and find a surgeon 4 hours away who performs surgery on folks without registering them.
