A comedic crime film
5 people are in a polic station. A policman walks in and tries to talk to them, but they are too distracted by other things. The policeman turns around and starts telling the story:
Story 1: Event
Told in a silent, black and white flashback, similar to the movies of the early 20’s. 6 people are in a store. 2 men walk in and pull out guns. The one shoots one of the people dead and steals the cash. The other makes a quick getaway. He then runs out. The police race there and take the remaining 5 people away, as they are witnesses to the murder and robbery
Back at the Police station:
The Policeman gets the 5 people into his office and they each start telling their stories (each having a different movie style)
Flashback 1: Madame Eve Kensington
Madame Kensington is a very sophisticated lady. She had entered the store to buy tea, as her maid was at a funeral. She had noticed the robber walk into the shop and slip a small chocalte into his pocket. Told in the style of a Shakespearean movie (lots of hand gestures, strange speeches and language etc.) The setting is on an elaborate stage (eg: the clerk is a king on a throne, the robber is a peasant etc.)
Flashback 2: Chadley Bredman
Chadley is an aspiring musician (and shop clerk) who entered the store for his shift. He had noticed the robber drive into the parking and enter the store. Told in the manner of a 90’s comedy (lighthearted jokes, quiet music etc.) The setting is in New York (eg: the clerk is a newspaper salesman)
Flashback 3: Jane Tomlin
A very nervous woman, Jane is a secretary that works for a doctor. She entered the store to buy pens for her job. She had noticed the men in the parking lot, talking. Told in the style of a 2000’s horror/suspense movie (lots of suspense, heavy footsteps and heavy breathing) The setting is in the woods (the clerk is a janitor, the thief is a axe murderer etc.)
Flashback 4: James Oilman
A lawyer is in the store to fetch a few supplies before he goes overseas. He had noticed the men pull in, get out of the car, talk for a few minutes and then enter the store. The murderer had thrown something in the dustbin. Told in the style of a court drama (eg: the clerk is a judge)
Flashback 5: Henry Smith
A old man who entered the store to buy food for himself and his friend sat the retirement home. He had noticed the thieves walk in, rob the store, kill the man and he noticed one man ran away int eh car he came, while the murderer ran and caught a taxi. Told in the style of a western (eg: the store is a saloon, the cars are horses etc.)
Back at the Police station:
Another policeman enters and congratulates the 5 people. He calls a man by the name “Alan” and a man (the same man who murdered the customer) enters, (Henry tries to attack him) and he is wearing badge that says:
Department of Undercover Crime Fighting and Unorthodox Methods
The policemen explain that it was just a plan to catch the other thief (who ran away first) because ehe had murdered 12 people and was a fugitive and that the customer who was killed was in fact not dead, but had just used blanks and a blood pack. They thank the witnesses for their help and assure them that the dangerous criminal, Mel Stanton, is safely locked away in Maximum-security prison.
The witnesses leave and go home. It cuts to the store again and a man walks in. He asks for a packet of cigarettes and a bag of jerky. We don’t see his face, until he walks away and it is revealed to be Mel.
