Remember- Screenplay

*She says this will work* Movellas ruins the formatting, so it does not look as good as it does on word or the software I use. SO sorry?

1. Episode One *NAME YET TO BE DECIDED* *NOT FINISHED*

              

EXT. INN - THE COURSE OF A MONTH

                  

Jumpy fiddle Music. Ariel shot of an underwhelming small glowing red brick building in a vast empty dessert. Time lapse of repeated sunset to starry night to day (gradually getting faster) with occasional man on horseback,tall black woman, large ragged family, walking towards the inn from all angles. Slow down to a group of stiff soldiers cloaked in chain armor and bearing royal coat of arms across their shields, knocking on the door.

                  

FADE TO:

                  

INT. INN - 7PM

                  

AMARA (16, brown, loose black curly hair, short) washing pots in a modest kitchen, humming the tune of the Music. Lighting is warm and there is a plump woman (AUNT) chopping vegetables frantically at a stone slab.

                  

AUNT

Amara, you need to help with the soup!

(left eye twitching)

 

                  

AMARA continues to hum and closes both eyes raising her head towards the ceiling. AUNT walks up to her. Sounds of SOLDIERS laughing in the distance.

                  

AUNT (CONT'D)

AMARA!

                  

AUNT taps finger against AMARA'S back at which point she twists in a smooth motion, holding the soapy pan above AUNT'S head. She smiles to herself, laying it carefully back into the sink.

                  

AMARA

Sorry.

                  

AUNT glares at AMARA, who seems unfazed.

                  

AUNT

We don't have any time for dilly dallying. Take this food into the drawing room.

                       

Passes a tray of food into an unwilling AMARA'S arms, brushing her dirty forest green cloak.

                  

AUNT (CONT'D)

(Scolds)

 And try not to scare them away.

                  

AMARA stops at the door.

                  

AUNT (CONT'D)

(Looking up from chopping, sighs)

 What now?

                  

AMARA

What about the soup?

                  

AUNT

Leave the soup!

                  

AMARA

Oh.

                  

AMARA moves one foot, only to stop again.

                  

AMARA (CONT'D)

(With enthusiasm)

What about...

                  

AUNT lifts knife in annoyance

                  

AUNT

(Snaps)

 NO! You are to give the tray to the guests and then come straight back here...

                  

AUNT drops knife.

                  

AUNT (CONT'D)

(Kinder)

 I know how much you loathe everyone but yourself, but don't you think Amara that it is time to 'face your fears'

                  

AMARA scowls.

                  

EXEUNT AMARA

                  

AUNT (CONT'D)

(Muttering under her breath)

 After all these years, she never changes.
