FADE IN...

A sun-blasted sky. We HEAR radios -- one piece of music after

another...

We're --

1 EXT. 101 FREEWAY - DAY

Cars are at a standstill. It's a horrific traffic jam.

Morning rush hour. Sun beating down, asphalt shimmering in the

heat. The blown-out downtown L.A. skyline hovers in the

distance.

We DRIFT past more CARS. Hear one snippet of audio after

another...

One driver taps his steering wheel to PROG ROCK. Another

sings to OPERA. A third raps along to a HIP-HOP track. We

move from a RADIO INTERVIEW to a FRENCH BALLAD to TECHNO,

until finally we begin to hear...

...a new, original piece of music... [ANOTHER DAY OF SUN]

We settle on the CAR from which this new tune is playing.

The driver is a YOUNG WOMAN. She hums along to the riff on

her radio -- then starts SINGING.

Then -- she EXITS her car. Then -- she starts MOVING down the

lane.

One by one, more DRIVERS join her -- SINGING and DANCING

along. Without a single cut, we've found ourselves in a FULL-

FLEDGED MUSICAL NUMBER...

Drivers leap on car-tops, dance Jerome Robbins-style, making

use of the road and the hot gleam of the automobiles. Arms

swaying, feet banging, dancers darting, as the MUSIC blasts.

We WEAVE and SWIRL and DART between and around the cars,

taking the magic in...

Finally -- all the drivers swing back into their vehicles --

and the song comes to a dramatic stop.
