But the car won't start. Foley bangs on the wheel...

FOLEY (CONT'D)

F*ck!

Foley then stiffens as a cop sticks his gun through the open

window into Foley's ear...

COP:

I think you flooded it.

Foley looks to the passenger window, where ANOTER COP, smiling,

now has his gun pointing at him.

SECOND COP:

Get out've the car, sir.

FOLEY:

Wanna hear a funny story?

SECOND COP:

Shut up and get out've the car.

And as Foley obliges, we then...

FADE TO WHITE.

We hear a MAN GRUNT. Then see Foley in SLOW MOTION as he jumps

through frame, now we see a basketball come up in his hand as

we realize he's on his way to the rim when...

...ANOTHER GUY rams into him in mid-air, knocks him down.

EXT. PRISON YARD - DAY

A BASKETBALL GAME in progress. All of the men, Foley included,

are dressed in blue coveralls and white T-shirts. The game is

rough. Hair is pulled. Eyes are poked. Faces punched.

A title reads:
"GLADES CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTION. BELLE GLADE,

FLORIDA."

Foley is the oldest player here. He's getting tired, starts to

lose his breath. He finally walks off the court, breathing so

hard he can't even talk. He simply motions to SOME YOUNG CONVICT

to come in and take his place.

Foley sits down on a bench, tries to catch his breath. He looks

across the yard to where...

A GROUP OF ELDERLY INMATES

sitting around a wooden picnic table are playing cards. All of

them are over sixty. One of them, a one-legged guy on crutches

hops away from the table, spits out some tobacco as we...

INTERCUT THE OLD TIMERS WITH FOLEY WATCHING THEM:

As we see one old guy is making a picture frame out of old Pal

Mal and Lucky Strike packs. Another tends to a tomato bush in

a tiny patch of garden near the wall. Another one sits nearby

painting a picture of a man and a boy fishing from a rowboat.
