BETH (CONT’D)

But I can’t prove it, so where does

She goes. We hold on Beth, bothered and affected by this,

but realising she has slender proof.

EXT. ESTATE - DAY 8 - 18.30 3

Council estate. Far from salubrious, but not Ken Loach grim.

Tracy walking across the estate where she lives. She passes a

huge NATIONAL LOTTERY poster in the news agents window.

INT. TRACY’S HOUSE - LIVING ROOM/KITCHEN - DAY 8 - 18.35 4

Modest house, without obvious affluence.

Tracy arrives home. Her mum, TANYA (single mother), who is

only in her thirties, so must have had Tracy young, is

watching TV - some talent show - with Tracy’s brother Robbie.

They’re eating on their laps.

TRACY:

Thanks for waiting.

ROBBIE:

We were starving.

TANYA:

Microwave, two minutes

TRACY:

Stuff you anyway, this time

tomorrow I’ll be drinking cocktails

in the Spanish sun

Tracy drags her coat off, heads for the kitchen.

TRACY (CONT'D)

Did you get me them suitcases out

the loft

ROBBIE:

They’re in your room

TANYA:

Two suitcases - how much stuff do

you need for a week in Ibiza?

Tracy slamming her food into the microwave, we hold on her

face a beat. Something isn’t quite right here. She is lying

to her family and it doesn’t sit easy...

NIGHT 8 - 22.45

Tracy’s bedroom, her wardrobe open, clothes everywhere -

Skype between Tracy and Viv. Each in their own bedroom late

at night, whispered conversation.
