    Essentially every contestant event in life has a winner of some form; but unfortunately, losers are far more common; they can be seen on virtually every street corner, alley way, office building, and church. Cory Mann has the good fortune of the upside of the story; he lives with honor; and even so, he never forgets to give due respect in word and action to his ever growing population of opponents.

    Three loves are the main source of Cory’s life of competition: first of all, his beautiful wife, Dana, is the source of his strength; second comes the care he puts into making his bigrig trucks the “Pride of Mann”; finally, his obsession with racing rigs and boats drives him to win over one hundred trophies. All three areas of endeavor give essential meaning to Cory’s life, because he gives meaning to winning. If anyone could do something to give credence to life, would he not put forth great effort to win?

    Cory’s eventful life has attracted a friend who has never experienced the praise and honors of being a champion in anything. Everything he develops undoubtedly possesses the nobility and hope of success, but nevertheless, nothing ever reaches a finishing point of materializing. Scott Degal is a good songwriter who will never forsake the love of writing, even though the world continues to crumble beneath his feet. On the other hand, losing never ceases to prove his destructive fate.

    M. M. Bell Trucking Company is where Cory and Scott first meet, when both are employed to drive bigrigs. Cory owns five of his own trucks, and leases them to M. M. Bell Co. He also functions as the department head of the Owner-Operator’s Division. Scott becomes acquainted with Cory when he is hired to drive one of Cory trucks: “Pride of Mann.” It is a great privilege to drive a “Pride”, with all of it’s majesty and beauty of a professional winner.

    The influence that Cory has on Scott begins to change him from a loser to a winner. He admires Cory for the love he has for his family, and for the quest to win, and for the ability to value his wife higher than his obsession to race. A turning point takes place in his life of losing, when he desires those qualities of Cory to be developed within himself.

    While Scott is driving for the Bell Co., he becomes friends with a female hitch-hiker, named Jenni. She is beautiful beyond expression; and so, Scott feels that he can protect her from the perils of hitch-hiking by giving her a ride in his truck. Their relationship is interpreted by a friend, Dorry, as love-at-first-sight. This couple of lovers had chosen to remain untouched, until they found “true love.” However, this strong love between them begins to jeopardize their promised vows of virginity, by arousing complicated passions of self-control.

    Cory and Dana become close friend with Scott and Jenni. They develop a common interest in speedboat racing. Dana use to race, but due to the welfare of the children, she gave it up. Cory gives her boat to Scott, for him to use in his upcoming adventure. Scott names the boat “Turning Point” to indicate the change of life styles. Just as Dana loves to support Cory’s passion for racing, Jenni becomes excited for Scott’s change, and encourages him to be a winner.

    A winner will always win, without fear of winning or losing, even if a race is lost. However, a loser’s attitude produces a fate which is almost impossible to change. Scott appears to encounter one of those insurmountable conditions, when the state suspends his driver’s license. He is no longer able to make a living at the same standard. When his source of income is stymied by dramatic measures, control of his circumstances become impossible to manage. Inspite of it all, Jenni stands by him as his true love. Because of Jenni, Scott is willing to try again and again, even until his chances are exhausted. Well, Scott’s very first competition race ends his life. After a long period of suffering loneliness from her loss, Jenni realizes that Scott still needs her to make his dreams come true. Songwriting was his first love, even before she came along. Even though he is dead, she can make him a winner with the songs he love to sing.

    Cory blames himself for the death of his friend, and decides to cut himself off from his own life’s quest. Dana fears for Cory to race again, but she is torn by the fact that he is a different man when he is not driven by the powerful urge to win. He persuades Dana to let him race in the Nationals, and after much frustration, she is forced to consent. The question of life or death stays with them constantly since Scott’s death. How many times can Cory race without getting killed? Will his wife be without a husband and will the children be without a father, after the Nationals?

    A movie synopsis:

    Temper-temper, young man! Anger shakes your heart, and emerges from an unstable base. Emotional illusions cloud your actions, so that, your behavior displays violence. Emotions tend to distort pure judgement. Divine imagination is the key. Study yourself, and pray desparately to image the origin of your disturbance. Gaze deeply into the lost chambers of the past, and make the necessary adjustments to your own self perception; for, whatever the cause, evil forces watch and wait–ready to intercept and direct the course of your anger.

    Register/Read Full Synopsis Below:

    [pay]Young Arnold Stephens is the victum of boisterous home life, where parents argued and fought constantly. Due to the emotional trauma caused by his environment, he resents the two people who gave him life. The expression love is impossible, and they show no respect for each other. Rather than demostrate their appreciation, they throw vehement darts of insults, and complain about their constant lack of satisfaction in the other.

    Arnold is left to develop his own imagination. When relying on distorted feelings, he interprets marriage as a mismanaged conflict of sexual illusions. The very people who conceived and gave him birth, are the very source of a love-hate conflict. But whatever he feels about them, he is too old to blame his parents for his present emotional condition of turmoil. He resolves to understand himself, and become responsible for his own emotional state of affairs.

    Home life becomes impossible for Arnold to cope with–effectively; therefore, he seeks understanding from the counsel of a local minister, Pastor Divine. This third party counsel is a view which adds intensity to his sexual confusion. Arnold’s parents have already implanted inconsistency into his perception; plus, his own imagination has taken on a second view in search of stability, but met with nothing but frustrations of defeat; and now, Pastor Divine–a mouthpiece for God, has contradicted his parents, and seemingly, defied the plan of God. If God is inconsistent, and love has no comfort to offer, then Arnold’s temper is not so unfounded, and he has solid reasons for his anger.

    While consulting with Pastor Divine, the room fills with evil gloom and despair, covering Arnold’s face with frustration. Evil spirits permeate the atmosphere, but the minister remains uneffected by the evil influences. The minister continues calmly sharing wise counsel with Arnold, as evil forces increase their power to beardown on this young man’s condition of frustration. Finally, when the minister declares Arnold’s relationship with Angela to be a sin before God, Arnold loses all self-control and strikes the minister with his raging temper. This assault pleases the evil spirits in the room, and they laugh as Pastor Divine falls to the floor.

    Evil constantly seeks to overthrow this powerful, but humble, man of God. But Pastor Divine is alert, and leaves no vulnerable weakness open for corruption. His dedication and impeccable personality stands strong like a stonewall…resisting every attempt from evil sources. The spirits were in good humor when Arnold’s uncontrollable temper put the minister in physical danger. However, they were unaware that a physical encounter is limited by its nature: this servant of the Lord God Almighty may be immobilized and become handicapped by the assault, but evil cannot outwit the mind of God…in all His might and majesty of omnipotent power.

    Pastor Divine develops a condition that gradually deteriorates his mortal body. Medical science continually performs extensive tests in order to determine the degree and speed of deterioration. At the same time, evil spirits are eagerly fighting to destroy his mind and soul. The battle between good and evil affects the minister’s body; thus, medical science becomes baffled by the division between the physical and the mental. The body is being destroyed before their very eyes, and yet, they witness a distinct increase in the minister’s mental capacity.

    Eventually, as expected, the minister dies. This leaves Arnold Stephens with a murder on his conscious. But, not only his conscious places him on trial, the system of courts also indict him with homicide. The legal system assumes an open-and-shut case, but a fair trial is compulsory by law. The only lawyer who will attempt the case is a young man who hasn’t won a case in five years, or rather, since he started his legal practice. He is down-in-the-dumps with nothing more to lose, so he accepts Arnold’s case.

    Expert witnesses from the medical profession are summoned to court to explain the conditions of Pastor Divine’s physical deterioration. By all things evident, the boy is guilty of murder in the first degree; but, the medical witnesses bring to light some evidence that puts a question in the minds of the jury. The facts point toward homicide, but this new light on the deceased’s physical condition reveals the presence of an unexplained phenomenon. The presence of supernatural powers cannot be accepted by the court as grounds for Arnold’s defense. The jury is under obligation to judge the boy by weighing the evidence; but however, they cannot ignore the testimony of the expert witnesses who declare the existence of supernatural forces involved in Pastor Divine’s deterioration and subsequent demise.

    The title: Passion Aforethought, is derived from the legal term: Malice Aforethought. It presents a twist on a passion of anger being galvanized by an internal conflict as a cause for Arnold Stephen’s behavior of committing murder, which cannot be proven without the predisposition of Pastor Divine’s supernatural victumisation.[/pay]
