Willy Shotz is a heavyweight screenwriter. Producers kill for his stylish violence and gritty sci-fi. But Willy is facing the big deadline in the sky, which has given him a new vision of art and cinema and a new screenplay to go with it. Can he overcome the indignities of his illness to pitch his craftiest foe? Can he talk art like a man with his boyhood friend and sell this script before his expiration date?  The Screenwriter Dies Of His Own Free Will is a two character metafictional comedy on the art of the deal.
