The Salton Sea

"If you're looking for the truth, you've come to the wrong place."

The Salton Sea is a crime drama about Danny Parker. Danny is a drug addict whose main choice of drug is speed. He ends up turning informant for two cops and tells them what is going on in the drug trade. Pooh Bear is one of the most infamous drug dealers in the region and Danny tries to set up a huge score with him in order to tip off the cops. Pooh Bear is easily identifiable because he lost his nose from doing so many drugs.

Danny then heads home and decides to take the name Tom Van Allen. He meets a woman named Colette who has suffered abuse. The two begin to form a bond. Danny tells Colette that he was once happily married; however, his wife was murdered. Danny’s wife’s parents are concerned that Danny has fallen into a depression but he shrugs off all their offers of assistance.

Soon it is revealed that the two cops that Danny is helping out are rogue cops actually wanted for murder. The FBI recruits Danny to help them as well. While Danny works with the FBI, he finds out the two cops were the men that killed his wife. Danny sneaks away from the FBI and participates in a drug deal with Pooh Bear that he knows will attract the two cops. Danny and Pooh Bear become involved in a shoot out, and Pooh Bear is killed. Danny shoots and kills the two cops.

Danny escapes only to be shot by Colette’s boyfriend. Colette apologizes to Danny and tells him that she had no choice but to let her boyfriend know about Danny’s true identity. A fire starts in the room, and Danny succumbs to the smoke. He wakes up in the hospital. He then decides to leave his old life of Danny and Tom behind and forge a new identity. He then leaves town.
