INT. ST. PETERSBURG FEDEX OFFICE, RUSSIA
SERIES OF SHOTS:
Night. The manic activity has come to a dead stop. Our two
Boxes sit on a table in a corner not far from a small
Daylight now. YURI, a Supervisor, saunters over, picks up
the Angel Box, sees an attractive co-worker, puts it down.
Night again. A cat walks by the table where our two Boxes
have come to rest.

A FedEx truck pulls out of the warehouse. The walls of the
warehouse are covered with graffiti. The streets are slushy,
the buildings blanketed in snow.

The Driver sits in the truck drinking tea. He takes a last
sip, sighs, gets out with the Angel Box. Walks slowly toward
an APARTMENT HOUSE.
EXT. ST. PETERSBURG APARTMENT HOUSE - MOMENTS LATER
A beautiful young RUSSIAN WOMAN opens the door. A young
AMERICAN MAN comes up behind her, signs the form and takes
the Angel Box. We see Christmas decorations inside. The
woman puts her arms around him as the door closes.
RUSSIAN WOMAN (O.S.)
It's pretty. Who is it from?
AMERICAN MAN (O.S.)
We stay with the Driver as he ambles back toward the truck.
EXT. ST. PETERSBURG OFFICE - MOMENTS LATER
The Driver has just delivered the Dented Box to ALEKSEI,
Russian Businessman, who closes the door of a Czarist-era
building. Aleksei checks his watch, picks up the phone.

CHUCK NOLAND, early thirties, walks along a line of brightly
colored jitneys, each bearing the FedEx logo. With him is a
Filipino FedEx SUPERVISOR wearing a guayabera. Chuck
glistens with a thin layer of sweat.
