Logline: Life, love and death in the French Resistance.

Synopsis: A few days after Billy Leigh's nineteenth birthday, Roland Murphy sees him hit in the mouth by a sniper's bullet.

Between the wars, Philippe (Roland's son) and his best friend Yves are in love with the same girl, Jacqui. But Jacqui only has eyes for Yves. And she really loves the scar on his face - it makes Yves look as if he's always smiling.

During the Nazi Occupation, Philippe and Yves live in constant fear of Germans who are looking for French kids to send to work in Germany.

Yves joins the Milice or French Gestapo to avoid the labour scheme. But Philippe takes a different route - he joins the French Resistance.

While hiding from the Nazis, Philippe goes swimming with some young patriots. One of them is circumcised - he must be a Jew.

In an attack on a German convoy, Philippe is wounded and found by a German officer with a scar on his face. And his mouth is twisted into a permanent smile...

Notes: This version of my script, "Coup de Grace - In Three Acts", is presented in a format which I believe will make it easier to read for those who are not associated with the movie making industry.
