1FADE IN1

A close-shot of a yellow legal tablet. A young hand comes

into frame, holding a pencil. For a few moments, we hear only

the soft scratching of pencil on paper, as credits are written

in a series of dissolves. The hand carefully erases and

corrects an error or two along the way. And then the sound of

an old friend... the warm crackle of a vinyl record... as we

now hear Alvin and the Chipmunks' "Christmas Song."

2EXT. PACIFIC OCEAN -- DAY2

A lone palm tree rises up into a yellow afternoon sky. Behind

it, the sparkling blue of the Pacific Ocean and the city of

San Diego. A dry, hot Southern California day. Even the wind

is lazy, and a little bored.

3EXT. NEIGHBORHOOD SHOPPING CENTER - DAY3

Santa Claus wears shorts and sandals, ringing a bell as he

collects for the Salvation Army. This is Christmas in the

Southland. No snow, no winter wonderland. Just a pleasantly

thick heat and an unchanging season, as music continues.

Turning the corner, walking into frame is ELAINE MILLER, 35.

She is a tall woman, consumed by the fevered conversation she's

Having with her pale young son WILLIAM, late pre-teens. They

stand apart from the other shoppers. All around them is the

highly-charged salesmanship of the season... silver glittering

fake Christmas trees. She hurries her son through the

commercial juggernaut, continuing their lively intellectual

conversation, when something stops her. A Workman is affixing

letters to a store-front. He has already placed the MERRY...

now he's finishing the XMAS. Elaine is strong, but always

pleasant, always clear about her purpose in this life.
