A “Rick Schaeffers” FILM
WRITTEN BY Rick Schaeffers

By day they jump in front of trains, skydive with no parachutes, play Russian roulette with six bullets and every time come out without a scratch. They are Scyther Club, using a ritual named "The Trinity", consisting of simultaneous murder, suicide and resurrection each member is initiated into a godlike state, no longer subjected to the rules of heaven, hell or earth they are free to attempt the impossible and the reaper, controller of death is forced to find a way to save them.

During the night they must remain in he light, as the reaper roams the shadows and gets his revenge if anyone is to step foot in the dark.

Michael, A real skeptic joins the club, and learns the history and rules of staying alive in Scyther Club, he is brought to their generator powered well-lite warehouse coined 'The Lighthouse" and brings the clubs acts and stunts to a whole other level. Brian, a long term member gets jealous of the new arrival and his effects on the club and reconsiders his allegiance.

For a group that relies on trust, restraint and light, it only takes one switch for everything to fall apart.
