1 INT. HOLLY’S CAR - DAY 9 1 *
Music kicks in, loud -Lies by Chvrches. We are inside the
car of Holly Pryce, mid-30s, cute face but not traditionally
She drives to work, singing along. This is her favourite
part of the day - just her and her tunes.
2 EXT/INT. COOPERS. CAR PARK. HOLLY’S CAR - DAY 9 2 *
Music carries over...
Holly’s car parking in the large car park of CoopersOutdoors. Other workers park, tread in. *
Holly yawns, then laughs to herself, she grabs her phone andtakes a SELFIE of herself - now doing a large fake yawn.
She quickly adds the photo to her NOT BLUE - ABSOLUTELY NOT
FACEBOOK - SOCIAL MEDIA page. With the message - YAWNINGALREADY, 8.57!
3 INT. COOPERS. CALL CENTRE - DAY 9 3 *
Holly heading in, passing some regulars (ALLY, KARL and RAY),
already hard at work... past the HAPPY PEOPLE SELL sign...
(deadpan voice, into hisheadset)

Tough, he’s not denying the rest of
us a night out -
Holly smiles, heads on...
...right to the end - where her desk is outside Jenna’s. *
Hi Holly - I need you to RSVP yes
for this -
Hands her an invite for an INDUSTRY ‘PERSPECTIVES’ DINNER. *
Holly, sparks her computer - which is on permanent standby -*
and, like the rest of the office based world - fires up her *
social media page (unseen by Jenna). *
Oh, and I spoke to Jag this *
morning, a couple of the reps are
saying their expenses haven’t
reached their accounts...
(rolls her eyes)
It’s like dealing with children -
how many times... it’s the 5th.
She scribbles a note to ‘ring accounts dept’. *
Jenna smiles. Turns to go. *
Holly sees how many people have already LIKED her photo and *
reads the comments... Smiles. *
You’re the oil in the engine Holly.
Oh, speaking of...
Holly turns back.
Personal request - pretty vital
Holly’s eyes widen - relishing the prospect of some important
role that requires her.
You know I’m on holiday from
Tuesday, well while I’m away - you
wouldn’t do the honours with Tigger
again would you - there’s a spa day
in it for you
Holly disappointed that is the request. Masks it.

She scrolls through other posts *
And we SMASH CUT, super fast to: photo of someone’s adorablekid; a couple in a pub, beers raised; a comedy drawing of apolitician with a penis head; a pair of legs on a beach -
‘hard at work!; another couple, laughing and pointing at a
horse in the countryside. On and on - a world of peopleposting about their glorious fun lives. It makes her feel a
small pang of inadequacy and disappointment.
4 INT. COOPERS. WAREHOUSE AREA - DAY 9 4 *
Holly heads towards the WAREHOUSE AREA, as she passesthrough, the warehouse manager BILLY ‘TOKE’ TOKINGTON appears
