For your consideration

People send me film and TV pitches at work. This one fell into my inbox recently, which I will summarize thusly:

Guy tries to get over his ex by finding another woman to sleep with. So he travels down to the Mexican-Arizona border, falls in love with a local living in a "beautiful hacienda," but she mistakes him for the man who killed her father, so she tries to kill him with a plate of poisoned chicken mole, but she has a change of heart, only to find out the drug lord wants her dead and is now out to snuff out both of them.

This story was predictably binned. Unfortunate because I can probably dedicate a blog entirely to failed scripts (if they weren't such a pain to slog through).
