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.

5. Some Conditions and a Mother Daughter Chat

INT. CARRIGAN/SHEPARD KITCHEN - SUNNY EXTERIOR

Sage and Carver are standing while Sage’s parents and Fern sit at the table looking concerned.

KEVIN:

“Sounds like old Johnny Bluecreek.”

Sarah looks at Sage nervously, and Sage looks down until Kevin stands up and walks over to the two kids.

KEVIN:
“Listen you guys. You’re not in trouble.
(Sage smiles)
But you’ve got to be careful. You’re probably safe, cause Johnny is a drunk and no one will believe him. But you never know.”

Sage looks at her father with sad eyes and Carver looks confused.

SAGE:

“Okay daddy.”

KEVIN:

“That’s my girl.”

Sage returns the hug, but continues to look sad.

Sarah and Fern watch Kevin and Sage hugging and Carver looks at the clock hanging above the stove which reads 5:00.

CARVER:

“I should go. I think dinner will be ready soon.”

Sage lets go of her father, and turns to hug Carver who hugs her back looking a little embarrassed.

SAGE:

“Bye Carver.”

Sarah Kevin and Fern all smile at the cute little sight till Sage lets Carver go, and he turns and walks out without another word. Fern stands up, walks over to Sage who is staring at the door and places her hands on Sage’s shoulders.

FERN:

“Is he your boyfriend?”

Sarah looks a little upset as if she thinks Sage is still too young to have a boyfriend. Sage looks up at Fern.

SAGE:

“Yeah.”

Fern smiles and leans in to Sage to give her a kiss.

INT. SAGE’S BEDROOM - SOFT LIGHT

Sage’s bedroom is painted spring green, she has pictures of puppies and kittens hung up all over and a large collection of stuffed animals.

Sarah is waiting on Sage’s bed with its blue sheets till Sage comes in from the door to the left and Sarah smiles at her.

SARAH:

“You all set for bed pumpkin?”

Sage skips happily over and leaps onto the bed, where mother and daughter hug each other.

Sage let’s go and looks up at her mother.

SAGE:

“Mommy?”

Sarah kisses the top of Sage’s head.

SARAH:

“Yeah honey.”

Sage frowns.

SAGE:

“That man today. He smelled weird.”

Sarah gives her daughter a squeeze.

SARAH:

“He was drunk sweetie. That’s probably what you smelled.”

Sarah pulls back the covers and Sage continues talking as she crawls under them.

SAGE:

“I don’t think that’s it, cause sometimes daddy smells like that.”

Sarah smooths the blanket on top of Sage.

SAGE:

“But this man was different. He smelled like a bad man.”

Sarah looks nervous for a second, but quickly hides it behind a smile when Sage turns to her looking sad.

SAGE:

“Mommy? Why am I so different?”

Sarah lies down, propping herself up on her elbow.

SARAH:

“We’re all a little different sweetie. Being different is what makes each person special. Some people have light skin, some have dark. Some people like boys, some like girls. Some people even like both. Some people like spinach. Others hate it.”

Sage giggles, and Sarah leans over to kiss her forehead.

SARAH:

“If everyone was the same it would be an awfully boring world.”

Sage pulls the covers up to her chin.

SAGE:

“I guess.”

Sarah smiles.

SARAH:

“But you know what? If we all had to be the same, then I hope we could all be like you.”

Sage smiles.

INT. HALLWAY OUTSIDE SAGE’S ROOM - DIMLY LIT

Sarah steps out into the hallway, stands there for a few seconds, then buries her face in her hand and cries silently.
