Primal Tears (partial movie script - PG13 edition)

I have long been a fan of Kelpie Wilson's novel Primal Tears. To find out more about it click the link to the youtube video. I have included here, a sample of the theatrical version of a script for a Primal Tears film.

I will eventually post a sample of the R rated version on here as well.

3. Meeting Sage / Sage and Carver

INT. CARRIGAN/SHEPARD KITCHEN - MIDDAY

From the kitchen we can hear the sounds of Sarah going through labor, and her family, and midwife JO-ANN encouraging her.

JO-ANN: (O.S.)

“I think you can make it with one more push.”

Suddenly there is a cheer.

INT. CARRIGAN/SHEPARD KITCHEN (A DIFFERENT DAY) - MORNING

A large crowd of friends and relatives have gathered in the Carrigan/Shepard kitchen to greet the new baby.

Sage looks like a cross between a human infant and an ape. Her feet resemble hands, her body is covered in a light coating of silky hair, she has a tiny button nose, and wrinkles on her face. Other than that, she more or less looks like a human girl with mocha colored skin.

Everyone is gathered around Sarah as she holds Sage.

An older woman with short grey hair wearing a sweater and holding a cup of tea, looks at Sarah with a smile, who smiles back, and kisses the woman on the cheek.

SARAH:

“Thank you Ma.”

A three year old boy named CARVER, comes up next to Sarah. He has braces on his legs (due to having bilateral clubfoot) blond hair, green suspenders a bright curious smile, and he looks at Sage with amazement in his eyes.

Sarah smiles, kneels down so that Carver can look at Sage, whose eyes are closed.

Carver looks at Sarah with a questioning look in his eyes.

SARAH:

“She has a condition called Fletcher’s Syndrome. But don’t worry. She’s gonna be just fine.”

Sage opens her eyes slowly, and Sarah smiles as Carver and Sage look at each other and as Sage puts her foot in her mouth with relative ease, Carver smiles widely.

EXT. GRASSY FIELD (HOUSES IN DISTANCE) - BRIGHT AND SUNNY

TITLE: Six years later

Sage and Carver are tumbling through the grass laughing heartily.

Sage is wearing a purple tee-shirt and jeans. She has shoulder length light brown hair, and she is about the size of a four year old.

Carver is still wearing braces, but his blond hair has darkened a bit, and he is wearing it in a short ponytail.

Sage giggles as Carver tickles her tummy, then wriggles free, and despite Carver’s efforts to get a hold of her again, Sage manages to hold him off.

They are both laughing now, and Sage wraps her little arms around Carver in a hug.

SAGE:

“Love.”

Carver pats her head shyly, until Sage looks up at him with a wonderful smile, and he melts.

CARVER:

“I love you too.”

EXT. COMING OUT OF FOREST INTO GRASSY FIELD - EVENING

Sage and Carver emerge from the forest  with their arms around each other laughing, and Sage looks up at Carver.

SAGE:

“I had fun.”

CARVER:

“Me too.

(Carver looks at her with admiration)

You’re really special Sage.”

SAGE:

“Thank you.”

(Carver gives Sage a squeeze)

Carver and Sage walk into a group of kids playing.

As Carver and Sage approach them, the kids all give Sage a quick look and then turn away, causing Sage to look sad, and Carver to look helpless.

In the center of the group of kids, is a little girl named HARMONY with long reddish hair, a fluffy yellow skirt, and a golden retriever named RUBY by her side. She continues to stare at Sage with distaste, causing Carver to look worried.

HARMONY:

“Hey dog girl.”

The wrinkles at the edges of Sage’s eyes suddenly seem to tighten and Carver grips Sage tightly to his side, giving Harmony a death glare. Sage hangs her head in shame and Harmony gives Carver a smug little smile.

HARMONY:

“Woof woof.”

Sage starts making little squeaking noises, and when Harmony mocks her she wrenches herself from Carver’s hold and runs off.

CARVER:

“Sage wait!”

Harmony looks pleased with herself and Carver looks furious.
