This is a funny concept with great dialog. You really capture the way bratty kids talk.
It was a fun script. My suggestions are:

-Karen's pep talk is great. She uses that bratty kid diction.
I like how you made parallels to Scorsese or DePalma movies about the rise of drug kingpins or mafia types - with the candy as a substitute for drugs.
Overall, good job!

This sort of clinches it. -Maybe give the restaurant manager a better (more plausible) reason to fire... read
A review of The Keystoneby Michael Keller on 11/23/2013The Keystone is an intense, immersive horror/thriller. It was fun to read. Here are my running notes: -Good creepy opening, with a sort of Eyes Wide Shut hook. -Typo: “Daniel wakes up gasping for breath. He gets out of bed and walks pass dozens of unpacked moving boxes.” past -“I would of been happy with lunch.” would have -“You deviated from the regiment.” regimen -I’m... read
