INT.AN’S PARENT’S HOUSE-FISH SHOP-DAY

Shu Chen sells fish in a small store before her house to a handful of customers.

 

INT.COUPLE’S ROOM-DAY

Jung Chen, her husband lies on a bed asleep in a small room. The rays of the sun stream into the room lighting it up partially.

 

INT.LIVING ROOM-DAY

Medium-height 14 year-old An Chen wearing a pale white singlet and pale blue shorts sweeps the uncarpeted room with a broom. Soon, he completes sweeping and collects the refuse and places the collector at a corner of the room and starts dusting the few furniture there: a sofa, two arm chairs, a centre table, two coffee tables and a small TV. After dusting, he exits the room with the broom and collector in hand.

 

INT.BACK OF HOUSE-CONTINUE

An disposes off the refuse into a rubbish bin and returns inside.

 

INT.COUPLE’S ROOM-DAY

Jung suddenly awakes as the bright rays glare at him. He sits up in his bed and buries his face in his palms for a few seconds and yawns uncovering it. He appears a bit tipsy and has partially red eyes. He wears nothing on his torso but a short below. After a minute he rises and begins to slowly walk away.

 

INT.BATH-CONTINUE

Jung washes his face in a sink several times over. Finally, he stops and stares at it in the mirror before him and exits the place without wiping his face.

 

EXT.FISH SHOP-DAY

Jung arrives at his wife’s fish shop. The customers have left and only Shu remains removing the scales off the fish in a bowl.

 

JUNG

(says loudly in a little tipsy tone)

Hey, how are you?

 

SHU

(cheerfully lifting up her head)

Hello, I didn’t see you coming.

 

JUNG

(sits on a stool by the shop)

It’s ok. How is business this morning?

SHU

Good, quite impressive I must say. I already made a $100.

 

JUNG

Wow! That’s really impressive. A $100 is good, very good.

 

SHU

Yes, it is. Have you eaten yet? I made breakfast already.

 

JUNG

Thanks dear. By the way where is An?

 

SHU

Isn’t he inside?

JUNG

I haven’t seen him since I awoke. Perhaps, he’s working inside. I’d check.

 

SHU

Alright. Ah, here comes another client.

 

JUNG

(rises off stool)

Ok, I’d be leaving you now, see you later.

 

SHU

Ok.

 

Park returns inside while Shu serves the customer.

 

INT.LIVING ROOM-DAY

Park arrives at room and meets An carrying a large bowl of clothes approaching his direction.

 

JUNG

(loudly but composed)

Where are you going?

 

AN

(cheerfully)

Good morning father.

 

JUNG

Morning son, what’s that in your hands?

AN

Clothes, yours, mine and mother’s. I’m going to wash them.

 

JUNG

(says and begins to walk away)

Ah, ok. Wash them well then.

 

AN

(abruptly calls him)

Father!

 

JUNG

(stops and turns)

Yes, what do you want?

 

AN

(runs to him)

Father, I need some new clothes please. I need new singlets for school and some nice shirts I can wear at home.

 

JUNG

(chuckles staring at him)

You need some new clothes huh?

 

AN

(nods his head)

Yes please.

 

JUNG

Ok, how much does it cost?

 

AN

I-

 

JUNG

(interrupting him)

Would $10 be ok?

 

AN

(a bit shocked)

$10?

 

JUNG

(dips hand into pocket)

Of course, it would be.

 

AN

(staring at him)

Father, that’s too small.

 

JUNG

What? What did you say?

 

AN

(softly looking in his face)

$10 cannot buy me all the new clothes I want.

 

JUNG

(immediately slaps him)

How rude of you!

 

An screams and falls to the floor but Park continues slapping his face. An covers his cheeks with his palms.

 

JUNG

(says and kicks him)

How rude of you!

 

An screams and Shu hears it this time and rushes into the house.

SHU

What is happening here!

 

An continues to cry while Jung glances at her and begins to walk away.

 

SHU

(looking at Jung)

Honey, what happened? What did you do to him?

Jung ignores her and continues walking out.

 

AN

(cries)

He slapped me…he butted me…

 

SHU

(rushes to him)

Oh baby, I’m sorry.

 

Shu carries him off the floor and exits the room.

 

INT. AN’S ROOM-CONTINUE

Shu places him onto his mat on the floor and takes a look at the bruises on his cheeks, face, leg and thighs. An wails when she touches there.

 

SHU

I’m shocked, your father did all this to you?

An doesn’t respond. He cries softly. Abruptly, Sori rises.

 

SHU

(says and exits the room)

Dear, I’d be right back ok. Just a minute I’m going to get my handbag from my room.

Five minutes later, Shu returns to the room, properly dressed and carries An in her arms and exits the room.

 

EXT.SHOP-CONTINUE

Shu locks up the fish store and puts the key in her hang bag and attempts to carry An but he refuses softly.

Dream of Gloom (excerpt)

INT. RECORDING STUDIO-DAY

Joanne sings before a microphone while a man (music producer) sits watching her:

VERSE 1

Life is not a wall to lean on, or is it a bed to lie on,

‘Cos just like a rose though classy it seems like hell it feels on the skin,

But when it pricks you, though you may bleed,

You wouldn’t die if you’re truly human.

 

VERSE 2

Trouble may be closing on you; and pain a step beside you,

But a glance before you though brief it may be, can save your soul from the pit,

‘Cos when you look up, though you may blink,

You wouldn’t cry if you have faith.

 

MUSIC PRODUCER

(clapping hands)

Excellent, simply exquisite.

 

JOANNE

Thanks I like it too. I had it while bathing yester night.

 

 

MUSIC PRODUCER

That’s interesting. Justina would be happy to hear it.

 

JOANNE

What? You mean Justina Miller would be singing this song?

 

MUSIC PRODUCER

Of course, it’s a hit and that’s what every singer needs.

 

JOANNE

(giggles)

Oh God, I can’t believe this. When did you meet her?

 

MUSIC PRODUCER

Long before I met you.

 

MUSIC PRODUCER

You want to meet her before the launch?

 

JOANNE

(smiling at him while standing at the exit)

No but thanks. I’m leaving now.

 

MUSIC PRODUCER

Alright see you later.

 

JOANNE

(exits room)

Bye.

 

 

EXT.STREET-CONTINUE

Joanne stops a taxi and enters it, sitting beside the driver. On the way she chats with him about his faith.

 

CAB DRIVER

Where to?

 

JOANNE

Harvey street.

 

CAB DRIVER

(says and puts in a Reggae music CD)

Okay.

 

JOANNE

Reggae music.

 

CAB DRIVER

(glances at her)

You like it?

 

JOANNE

Well a bit because, it mostly talks wisdom. But I prefer to listen to sometime Christian.

 

JOANNE

I’m Joanne. What about you?

 

CAB DRIVER

Timothy but call me Timo. My dad’s a pastor, he gave me the name. However, I no longer visit church. My business takes all the time.

 

JOANNE

Oh. But you acknowledge the fact that God protects you don’t you?

 

CAB DRIVER

I do. But times are hard sister, I can’t spend all day at church I need to eat.

 

JOANNE

So how do you thank God for his unparalleled care?

 

CAB DRIVER

(chuckles)

I pray sometimes in the mornings. I forget during the evenings and afternoons.

 

JOANNE

Timo I think you should show more appreciation towards God. What if in your haste to make money something happens and you end up in hospital for years? I bet you’d be crying for his healing all day.

 

CAB DRIVER

I know. I’d change.

 

JOANNE

When?

CAB DRIVER

Where do you church? You could invite me coming Sunday.

 

JOANNE

What about your father’s church?

 

CAB DRIVER

I don’t know if he would be happy to see me. I’m more of an outcast there.

 

JOANNE

Don’t say that please. I’d go there with you on Sunday. Pick me up here at 7.

 

CAB DRIVER

(looking at her, smiles softly)

Okay. I’ll.

Hi angel. Are you busy at the moment?

 

JOANNE

Yes, I’m eating. I just returned from the studio.

 

JESSICA

Oh I see. Then let’s meet tomorrow for lunch at the restaurant I have some news for you.

 

JOANNE

Our own restaurant you mean?

 

JESSICA

INT.NIGHT CLUB-NIGHT

A MONTH AGO: People dancing to loud music. A tall, pretty, young, white girl wearing a long, dark, wig, and dressed in a short straight dress arrives there and walks to the bar to order a drink. The young-looking barman winks at her and serves her the drink. She pays and picks up the glass to sip while looking at those dancing. They chat a few minutes and suddenly, she spots a young woman leaving the dance floor and she follows her leaving her glass at the bar.

 

ANGELA

A glass of whisky please.

 

BARMAN

(winks at her)

Ok honey, coming right up! Here your whisky.

 

ANGELA

(starts sipping while looking at the dancers)

Thanks.

BARMAN

You’re looking for a partner tonight?

 

ANGELA

(turns head to look at him)

Excuse me?

 

BARMAN

Do you need someone to dance with?

 

ANGELA

(fakes a soft smile at him)

No, I’m waiting for a friend. He’d soon be here.

 

BARMAN

Oh I see. By the way, I’m Steven.

 

ANGELA

Veronica. Nice to meet you.

 

BARMAN

My warmest pleasure baby, you’re a bomb!

ANGELA

(smiles and turns head to look at dancers)

Thanks.

 

Suddenly, she spots a young woman leaving the dance floor and she quickly puts down her glass and excuses herself.

 

ANGELA

Excuse me, I think he’s come.

 

BARMAN

Good, have a great night.

 

ANGELA

(says and walks quickly away)

You too.

 

Barman stares at her as she leaves but momentarily a group of male clients appear before him and he stops staring to serve them.

 

INT.LADIES WASHROOM-CONTINUE

The woman enters a toilet while Angela stands before a mirror at a sink combing her hair. A couple of women exit the room shortly afterwards leaving only Angela and the woman. As soon as they have left, she picks out a pair of slim gloves from her hand bag, put them on and brings out a large blue handkerchief and walks to the toilet where the woman entered and knocks softly.

 

1 VICTIM(O.S)

Use another one please.

 

Angela stands quietly behind the door, watching the entrance into the washroom and the toilet door. Suddenly, after 5 minutes, the woman unlocks the door and opens it to find Angela standing before it. She trembles a bit and Angela immediately covers her mouth with the handkerchief and pushes her into the closet and locks the door. 5 minutes later, she exits the room, clad in a below-knee dress and a short, black, curled hair.

 

EXT.STREET-CONTINUE

Angela puts the gloves and the long, black wig, and short dress into a large, black, rubbish-filled polythene sack in a dustbin and continues her journey on foot home.

Angela arrives at the room and meets one of his brothers watching TV with a friend. She greets them cheerfully and attempts walking away when her brother calls her to introduce her to his friend.

 

BROTHER

Angie, this is Rob, a close friend of mine.

 

ROB

(rises off the sofa)

Nice to meet you.

 

ANGELA

(fakes a smile)

Hi, nice to meet you too, please excuse me I need to make a call.

EXT.MAGDALENE’S HOME-CONTINUE

Tom chats with Rob as he escorts him a few meters away.

ROB

Does she…have a boyfriend?

 

TOM

No, I don’t think so. She’s quite reserved: usually with her books, doesn’t go out much, doesn’t party or like parties, you know that kind of person.

 

ROB

I see but she’s gorgeous. I wish I could take her out one of these evenings. How do I tell her would she agree?

 

TOM

I don’t know man; you should thank your stars if she does. As far as I know, no man has been successful in winning her heart.

 

ROB

At 21?

TOM

(nods head and says)

Exactly.

 

INT.KITCHEN-DAY

It’s morning, 8 o’clock and Magdalene sits in a chair before the dinning table dressed in a short glittering black gown and her hair in a mess. Her head is bent over the table. Suddenly, Angela enters the room and calls her name sounding a bit surprised. She answers in a sleepy tone.

 

ANGELA

Mum?

MAGDALENE

(immediately lifts head and looks at her)

Hi! How are you?

 

ANGELA

Mum when did you arrive, this morning or yester night?

 

MAGDALENE

It doesn’t matter dear, what matters is that I got home safely. The party was good, very good. I met so many old friends and nice men too, actually it was a nice man, one not more.

 

ANGELA

Are you drunk mother?

 

MAGDALENE

No! No way I’m not drunk!

 

ANGELA

Then why are you talking in that tone.

MAGDALENE

(says and rises off her seat)

What tone? I’m a bit sleepy that’s all. Good night, I need to go to bed.

ANGELA

(watches her leave)

Ok. Sweet dreams.

 

Moments after she’s gone, Angela shakes her hand and opens the cupboard to pick a box of oats to make breakfast.

Magdalene arrives at her bedroom, walks to the bed and drops down on it.

 

INT.POLICE DEPARTMENT-SERGEANT’S OFFICE-DAY

Sergeant Conrad Mctyre speaks with detective Sailor on the case.

 

DETECTIVE

Her blood test results showed no evidence of poisoning. Moreover, her internal organs seemed OK which rules out the possibility of an internal bleeding.

 

SERGEANT

So no traces of any chemical in her blood, no sign of an abuse, could it be she may have died of a natural cause?

 

DETECTIVE

It could be. Yet on the other hand, not every drug is detectable. Perhaps, she died of one of those.

 

SERGEANT

Ok, let’s assume she was injected with one of those undetectable drugs, what then was the motive for her death? Robbery?

 

DETECTIVE

Her phone and driver’s licence were found in her hand bag. It

DONNA

Well, it depends on where I get a job, if I find one here then why not I’d stay.

 

CINDY

Is that the main reason why you’d stay? Nothing else?

 

DONNA

Of course, that’s all. Why?

 

Cindy and Cynthia exchange glances and Cynthia clears her throat and speaks.

 

CYNTHIA

What about him?

 

DONNA

(looking at Cynthia)

What do you mean? I…don’t get you.

 

CINDY

Well, Cynthia and I…we saw a message on your phone that read-

 

CYNTHIA

Hi, miss you call me if you can.

 

DONNA

(a bit offended)

You read my phone messages in my absence?

 

CINDY

No, we don’t. It was just once when you were in the bath.

 

CYNTHIA

It was last Friday, June 16, 4.30pm, that’s when the message arrived.

 

Cindy chuckles, Donna also.

COLLEAGUE

(standing)

Hi, I’m Sarah, Cynthia’s friend.

 

DONNA

Cynthia Rogers, you mean?

 

COLLEAGUE

Yes, she told me about you. That you were part of the psychology class.

DONNA

(shakes her hand)

Oh nice, nice to meet you.

 

COLLEAGUE

Nice to meet you too. Have a seat.

 

DONNA

Thanks. Can I ask you something?

 

COLLEAGUE

Sure.

 

DONNA

How did you know I’d be coming to class today? And you recognising me?

 

COLLEAGUE

Oh, good question. I saw you once with her. As for class, I didn’t know. It just happened I saw you quickly.

May be, parking his car at the car park or descending from it.

 

They both chuckle.

 

EXT.LECTURE HALL-DAY

Venice but my family resides in Rome.

 

COLLEAGUE

DONNA

COLLEAGUE

DONNA

Oh, well yes. Is there a restaurant somewhere close by?

STRANGER

(knocks down bag with hand)

Sorry!

DONNA

No, that’s ok.

 

STRANGER

(replaces bag)

No, it’s not ok. I should be more careful.

DONNA

Thanks.

STRANGER

Are you alone?

 

DONNA

No, I came with a friend, she’d be right back.

 

STRANGER

I see. Anyway, I’m Kelvin, nice to meet you.

DONNA

Donna, my pleasure.

 

STRANGER

Good, see you some other time.

Dream of Gloom

LOG LINE: A Christian top lyricist/singer/translator meets a man she decides to convert and befriends him but after a continual recurrence of a strange dream she calls off the friendship, an act that automatically tags her as his next victim.

Synopsis:
Joanne Taylor, a Christian top lyricist/singer/translator meets a man at a restaurant one day while there to meet with a friend. They engage in a short conversation and Joanne invites him to church with her coming Wednesday. Jorge agrees and gives his number to her to call. Joanne informs her mother about her decision to convert Jorge, a factory worker and a foreigner from Argentina. Sunday morning, a drug client visits Jorge home for some drugs and after an unfriendly welcome from him Max claims never to step foot in his house again.
A day later, Jorge is robbed of his drugs and visits his supplier for help. Max tries to sell the drugs to a man who offers to buy them at a lower price. Thus, he fights him but is killed and his body deposited in a trash bin. Wednesday comes and Joanne , her friend Jessica and Jorge visit church. Yet that night in her sleep, Joanne dreams of a car violently knocking down a woman walking on the street. The dream occurs twice and on the third time reveals the identity of the driver of the car, Jorge. Joanne informs Jessica about it and cuts contact with Jorge. One evening, while entering her house she meets Jorge who confronts her about her behaviour towards him lately. She claims to be engaged to be married and warns him to stay out of her way else she informs the police and accuses him of harassment. Jorge leaves and deletes Joanne’s number on his phone.
Few days later, a famous singer launches her album and Joanne and Jake, the music producer with whom she works witness the event. However, at the function, Jake is served two separate glasses of drinks one by a waitress and the latter by a waiter. Minutes after the first drink, his hands begin to tremble slightly but he doesn’t take notice of it as he taps his feet enjoying the song Joanne wrote. At the end of the event, a waiter serves him a glass of drink and he accepts it. He offers to give Joan a ride home but she’s called Tim, a driver she witnessed to some time ago. Thus, Jake drives home alone. On the way, he trembles violently and is drowsy. Consequently, he crashes his car by veering off his lane.
Joanne is shocked by the news but recovers 2 weeks after only to be attacked by a supposed tramp who slashes her hand with a knife. Joanne asks the doctor to discharge her that night and Tim picks her up and takes her home. Joanne recollects the events of the past few days and comes to a conclusion that Jorge is behind them all. She informs the police who visit his home but finds it empty. Consequently, an interview with Josh, Jorge’s close friend and coworker reveals Jorge’s decision to return to Argentina, a ploy to get the police off his track. Joanne is given a guard with whom she visits her parents’ home. That night, Jorge appears in her room and threatens to kill her parents who’re held by 2 gun men in the living room if she walks out of the room. He abducts her and drives away with the others. But the police finds them due to a tiny tracking device Joanne’s guard had put in her cup of chocolate that morning at her home. Jorge threatens to kill her thinking she called the cops and blows up the driver’s head after he’s refused to stop the car. The other assailant steps down from the car and is arrested. Jorge does likewise moments later with a gun at Joanne’s head, threatening to kill her if any got close. Yet, Joanne convinces him of her love for him and he lets down the gun and is arrested. Subsequently, Joanne and her parents visit him at jail, he reforms and starts a ministry, for which Joanne’s parents provide him Bibles.

Once in her room, she begins parking her belongings and attempts leaving the residence early the next morning but rather is dragged to a mental hospital where she’s admitted. –   something her mum organized. There, the unexpected occurs when Angela pretending to be asleep seizes the hand of the nurse who covers her with a blanket and injects her with a sedative. The nurse collapses onto the floor and Angela hurriedly locks the door by using a chair in the room. She then bends over the nurse kissing her but 5 minutes later, she awakens and screams causing Angela to cover her mouth. However, her cry calls attention and a doctor arrives forcing the door open. Angela attempts to escape but is seized by the doctor who calls security on her.

Consequently, she arrives at Sergeant Mctyre’s office for interrogation and confesses abruptly to being behind the deaths of the women. Moments afterwards, she rises from her seat and walks towards the door but Sergeant assures her of her inability to leave. He sits calling for Detective Sailor on the phone when suddenly, Angela hardly hits her head repeatedly on the wall- a suicide attempt. Sergeant Mctyre rushes to stop her but she’s already unconscious by the time he gets there. Angela is sent to the hospital where she soon passes away.
