No Rhyme…No Reason
by Dawn Leak and Kathryne Leak
This screenplay is a psychological drama, which takes place in New York City during the early 1990s.
Famous rap artist Dante Wright's life spirals out of control. He witnessed his mother's murder, which left a deep psychological scar. He has a total disregard and contempt for women, which is exemplified in his music and his behavior. His life takes on a twisted duality of finding success in the music industry while also having a sociopathic disconnection to humanity.
Dante thinks that killing is so easy, because of what he represents in society…a successful rap artist. The more he kills the more his life seems to spin out of control.
As in "Dante's Inferno," Dante is in constant search for his place in life, in which he only finds destruction and chaos. He takes a pilgrimage from Purgatory to Hell; and, due to a twist of events, he finally finds peace (God) - in a psychiatric ward.
Dante's flaw is a common one - man's struggle with his own feelings of separation and desire for connectiveness to mankind.
