Lindsay takes her place in the dock of a Crown Court. She

She sees a Clerk and the legal teams. Defence and Prosecution

are represented by counsel in full robes and wigs.

Not one of them is looking at her. They’re muttering to each

other, just another day at the office for them, even sharing

a private joke.
