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.

1. Opening scenes

Please note: Due to pasting problems, what you see here, is not the proper format for screenplay writing. I hope you will like it in spite of that.

 

FADE IN


The first thing that we see, is a series of paintings and photographs going by in a slide-show as ominous music plays.

The photos and paintings all seem to have a patriarchal feeling to them, as they all depict men doing things that mostly only men do.

Such as:

Killing people in the name of God, clear-cutting forests, bombing the shit out of innocent civilians, and beating and killing women just because they’re women.

As the slide-show goes on it becomes darker and more gruesome.

Needless to say the first images aren’t pleasant.

EXT. STONEWELL UNIVERSITY PARKING LOT - BRIGHT AND SUNNY

SARAH CARRIGAN a twenty something year old, with long dark hair, a blue shirt and jeans, and holding some papers, is walking toward the gates of Stonewell University.

With her is her partner KEVIN SHEPARD, around the same age, with buzz-cut brown hair, wearing a checkered pattern flannel shirt and sporting a wide smile.

Also with them is Sarah’s best friend FERN, an older woman in her forties, with long curly auburn hair, a lovely flowing shawl beneath multiple necklaces (with pendants depicting different goddess symbols), and arms covered in colorful bangles.

The three of them walk toward the outer gates.

FERN:

“You’ve done it honey.”

Sarah smiles at Fern and then looks nervously at the papers she’s holding which Kevin seems to notice, and so he gently takes her hand, inducing a smile from her.

KEVIN:

“I’m proud of you sweetie.”

He kisses Sarah on the cheek, and Sarah returns the kiss on the lips as Fern skips through the open gates.

INT. OFFICE OF JOHN STENGERS - BRIGHT

A cozy looking office, with pictures of flowers on the wall. Sarah, Kevin and Fern are sitting at a desk, Sarah looking nervous, until a door opens to their left, and the head scientist JOHN STENGERS, a middle aged man with slick dark blond hair, handsome features, and wearing a fine looking brown suit, enters the room with a wide smile.

JOHN:

“Congratulations.”

Everyone stands, and Sarah shakes John’s hand.

JOHN:

“Sarah I cannot tell you how pleased I am that all your paperwork checked out. This is going to be an amazing experiment.”

SARAH:

“Thank you Mr. Stengers. The way I see it, if this works I’ll helping an endangered species, and I’ll get the satisfaction of spitting at the conservative pricks who fired me for teaching evolution.”

John gives Sarah a joyful hug, and Kevin and Fern smile (slight hint of jealousy on Fern’s face) till John let’s go of Sarah and walks over to his desk.

JOHN:

“Just sign these last few papers. Then you’ll be ready for the procedure.”

Sarah signs, Kevin and Fern clap, and John smiles.

JOHN:

“Ms. Carrigan are you ready to start growing a bonobo fetus?”

SARAH:

“I am.”

Fern and Kevin high five Sarah.

The door opens again, and JEANETTE ORSINI a young woman with shoulder length blond hair, wearing banana shaped earrings and a lab coat, walks through the door and smiles at everyone.

JOHN:

“She’s all set Jen.”

JEANETTE:

“Shall we go do this then?”

Everyone looks at Sarah.

SARAH:

“Let’s do it.”

Kevin gives Sarah one last kiss before she exits the room after Jeanette.

INT. DOCTOR’S OFFICE - HOMEY LIGHTING

Sarah, now wearing a patient’s gown, is seated in a chair with her feet in stirrups looking nervous but excited as Jeanette takes a catheter, approaches her and sits down.

JEANETTE:

“Whenever you’re ready.”

Sarah gives Jeanette the thumbs up, takes a deep breath as the catheter is inserted, and looks around her at the pictures of bonobos that adorn the walls.

JEANETTE:

“If this goes according to plan, the bonobo egg and sperm will come together, and you’ll be able to grow an actual bonobo in your womb.”

Sarah looks nervous again, which Jeanette notices, and gives her a calming smile.

SARAH:

“If this is successful, it will be a huge help to the dwindling bonobo population.”

Jeanette stands up, the catheter business completed.

JEANETTE:

“And if it doesn’t work, at least you got to be part of scientific history.”

Sarah sits up in the chair.

SARAH:

“I really hope it works.”

Jeanette smiles at Sarah.
