WILSON:

Edward Rama?

ED:

Eduardo.

(rolling the R)

Rama.

WILSON:

You're home, then.

He turns, waves away the taxi he's kept waiting. While

Eduardo Rama waits for an introduction.

WILSON:

My name's Wilson.

Accent speaks for itself. Hard, working-class.

ED:

Wilson?

Knows the name. But just now it's unexpected. He's holding

a hot TV dinner, hand protected by a dish towel.

WILSON:

You wrote to me about my daughter.

CUT.

INT. ED'S HOUSE. NIGHT.

Ed takes Wilson inside.

ED:

I didn't expect anyone.

WILSON:

No reason.

ED:

I mean, what has it been -- six months?

WILSON:

Round about, yeah.

They've entered a cauldron of family life. TV blaring

(SHOWBIZ TONIGHT!). A couple of younger KIDS yelling "Mama".

Their MOTHER shouting back at them from the kitchen (in

Spanish) that she only has two hands. A sullen TEENAGER

walking by.

ED:

I didn't even know who I was writing to --

just someone with the same last name.

She never talked about any family.

WILSON:

It was better than a telegram.
