But then a flash of hard-core pornography. And on the next

monitor, something worse. Are those naked children on the

screen? We’re moving too fast to know.

Marsh stops at a large desk, equipped with four large

monitors and two keyboards. She removes her Glock from its

holster, slips it into a drawer, and locks it.

EXT. OFFICE BUILDING -- LATER -- RAINY NIGHT.

Behind the rainy window pane, we see Marsh, typing quickly,

navigating the web, her screens flashing as pages open and

close.

INT. MARSH’S WORK STATION -- SAME -- RAINY NIGHT.

Seated closest to Marsh is GRIFFIN DOWD, 30, funny-looking,

bright, amiable, typing into a chat room. Despite the

intensity of their concentration, they manage to converse-

GRIFFIN:

I’m serious. It was the best first

date ever. She was amazing. She

looked exactly like her picture.

MARSH:

You’ll never see her again.

GRIFFIN:

How do you know?

MARSH:

Because you look nothing like

yours.

Griffin laughs. Marsh freezes, types something, hits a key.

On one of her monitors, a website appears. She reacts to the

little victory. Curious, Griffin wheels his chair over and

reads the screen-

GRIFFIN:

Tunethief.com?

MARSH:

For the next few hours, anyway.

Tomorrow, it’ll have a new name.

It’s taken me a week to isolate the

creep.

4.

She hits Enter and a nasty gangsta rap song blares from her

speakers. Other workers look over, startled and amused.

Marsh lowers the volume.

.

MARSH (cont'd)

He offers free downloads of pirated

music. Watch what happens to my

dummy drive when I accept his offer.

Marsh clicks on the download button. On one of the screens,

at lightning speed, we see a digital representation of files

being madly copied.
