INT. BASEMENT - EVENING

A NAKED LIGHTBULB SPARKS TO LIFE. It dangles from the ceiling of

a basement.

LIGHT, QUICK FOOTSTEPS AS ANNA CROWE moves down the stairs.

Anna is the rare combination of beauty and innocence. She stands

in the chilly basement in an elegant summer dress that outlines

her slender body. Her gentle eyes move across the empty room and

come to rest on a rack of wine bottles covering one entire wall.

She walks to the bottles. Her fingertips slide over the labels.

She stops when she finds just the right one. A tiny smile as she

slides it out.

Anna turns to leave. Stops. She stares at the shadowy basement.

It's an unsettling place. She stands very still and watches her

breath form a TINY CLOUD IN THE COLD AIR. She's visibly

uncomfortable.

Anna Crowe moves for the staircase in a hurry. Each step faster

than the next. She climbs out of the basement in another burst

of LIGHT, QUICK FOOTSTEPS.

WE HEAR HER HIT THE LIGHT SWITCH.

THE LIGHTBULB DIES. DRIPPING BLACK DEVOURS THE ROOM.

CUT TO:

INT. DINING ROOM - EVENING

Two place settings are arranged on the living room coffee table.

Take-out Chinese food sits half eaten on good china. An empty

bottle of red wine sits between boxes of Chinese food.

Anna arrives with the backup bottle and is now wearing a sweater.

She hands a collegiate rowing team sweatshirt to Malcolm.

ANNA:

It's getting cold.

MALCOLM CROWE sits on the floor at the coffee table, his vest and

tie on the sofa behind him. A jacket and an overcoat lay on a

brirfcase next to him.
