Clean Break is a feature-length screenplay about a pool hustler named Jimmy Grey and Blake, Jimmy’s threemonth pregnant girlfriend. The couple attempt to take one last vacation before the baby arrives. On the evening before their departure, Jimmy makes an errant move in placing a large bet against a vindictive bookie. The result of Jimmy’s gambling is a severe beating and all of his travel money being stolen. Jimmy has to think fast in order to save his trip, so, he plans a new route for him and Blake to travel with pool stops along the way so he can make some extra money. Regardless of Jimmy’s attempts to show Blake that their future will be bright, the pool activities on their pseudo-vacation further isolated Blake. In the end, Blake has to decide whether there truly is enough evidence of change or whether she’s been hustled out of a secure future.
