OPERATOR:

A lucky boy. You're playing again?

SALVATORE:

Only when there's another fool with

a dollar to bet against.

CUT TO:

INT:
BEDROOM OF LUCIANO FAMILY APARTMENT - EVENING

Sal lays across a pallet on the floor of the dark, tiny room.

Bartolo lays next to him, asleep. In the next room, Rosalie

Luciano cooks in a primitive kitchen. Sal pulls a set of

post cards from his pocket, and flips through the photos of

beauties posed provocatively in their scanties. At the sound

of his father's voice raised in anger, he hides the cards.

JUST INSIDE THE FRONT DOOR STANDS A MAN IN UNIFORM

As Antonio drags Sal out from the bedroom.

SALVATORE:

(IN ITALIAN)

The Teacher hit me first!

Antonio hits Sal hard, upside the head.

ANTONIO LUCIANO:

(IN ITALIAN)

You have a smart teacher.

Rosalie runs over from the kitchen, waving a ladle.

ROSALIE LUCIANO:

(IN ITALIAN)

He's only a baby!

SALVATORE:

(IN ITALIAN)

Mama, I'm not a baby!

Antonio smacks Sal again, as his mother tries to pull him

away.

ANTONIO LUCIANO:

(IN ITALIAN)

Don't talk back to your mother.

At the door, the Truant Officer rolls his eyes. Antonio shoves

Salvatore toward him.

ANTONIO LUCIANO:

(IN ITALIAN)

Take him. I can do nothing.

CUT TO:

INT:
TRUANT SCHOOL CLASSROOM - DAY

Bars on the windows. The uniformed students sit rigidly

upright. They follow along in their books while the Teacher

reads aloud as he walks between the rows of desks.

SALVATORE STARES BLANKLY AT A BOOK HE CAN'T READ

As the Teacher passes, he raps Sal across the knuckles with

a ruler, then turns Sal's book to the correct page.
