film the week of two mondays a film series _ 01 : 47 : 21 : 11 volume zero
A very wealthy, deluded, married young woman makes a phone call (using a landline) to a man. Her voice projects no emotions; it seems she is not there at that moment. She is depressed and in pain; and prepared to pay for her own death.
Woman: Everything is sorted…
She pauses and lights up a cigarette.
Man: Like we discussed? Woman: Yes. Man: I need to double check it first. Woman: I sent you a copy; it will be there at any moment. Man: Anything changed? Woman: No. Man: Should I carry on? Woman: Yes, proceed please.
The woman hangs up the phone and lights up another cigarette. A girl comes towards the woman;
she ignores the girl
A thunderstorm… an explosion, lights bursting… confused sound of shouts. A mobile phone rings; a very angry/anxious voice starts a conversation.
What trick was that?
What is wrong with you...
What was that thing!!???
Man: Don’t bullshit me… I know what I saw
and I know you were there.
A thunderstorm… an explosion,
lights bursting… confused sound of shouts.
EXT. PUBLIC PARK // PLAYGROUND // NIGHT
The Man starts the hunt, looking for the girl.
EXT. BACK GARDEN // NIGHT Girl: Where are you mum? Girl: Why are you disappearing? Girl: What is wrong… mummy?!? The girl walks to the street... looking for help.
EXT. STREET // NIGHT
The girl finds a public telephone, but is surprised by an image of her mother... she runs in dispair. A car starts to follow and catches up with her.
The man seizes the girl: a chemical smell in the air and she instantly falls unconscious.
