INT. MUSEUM - DAY
A perfect rainbow is trapped inside two flawless DIAMONDS,
glinting in the morning sun.
Mounted on crushed velvet, the identical diamonds are on a glass
covered pedal stool in the middle of a vast, marble MUSEUM HALL.
The stunning beauty of the stones is matched only by the .
breathtaking beauty of the young woman who's admiring them. MARIE
CLIFFORD's creamy seventeen year old skin is dappled in the
cornucopia of colors emanating from the diamonds...
She reaches out tentatively towards the glass case. Not to touch
the diamonds, but to run her fingers over a picture that's mounted
in the case below the priceless jewels. It's of a MOTHER cradling
her BABY DAUGHTER...
Today's the day, Mom... .
You here again, Marie?
Marie spins round, sees the bespectacled CURATOR, 60's, standing
Marie carefully adjusts the sign atop the glass case...
'THE MOTHER DAUGHTER DIAMONDS...'
EXT. MUSEUM - DAY
Marie fires up her powerful BMW, parked right outside the austere
Museum building. The powerful stereo blasts, sending the birds
CREDITS appear over...
ARIEL FOOTAGE of a narrow highway, Marie's BMW streaking through
the endless tract of Florida wetlands. In the water, GATORS, warm
themselves in the early morning sun...
MOVING over the vast tracts of swampland, flocks of tropical BIRDS
stretch their majestic wings, locals speed across the stagnant
waters in their deafening AIRBOATS...
Through thick trees and foliage to trailer homes and tract housing
and into the town of Blue Bay, where the nip/tucked denizens sip
three martini lunches and tee off at the local country club.

Marie steers her BMW into the showroom-like parking lot of Blue
Bay High School.
INT. MARIE'S BMW - MORNING
Marie guides her powerful car towards her parking spot, when...
She SLAMS on the brakes as a figure darts in front of her car.
Almost gives her a heart attack, throwing her forward, flailing
arms crashing into the stereo, then snapped back by her seatbelt.
She sits stock still for a second, then looks up, out of her
windshield at the young woman scouring at her, only inches from
the front bumper of the BMW.
The sudden jolt has changed the radio station. A newscaster

... operation, aimed at finally capturing
the Black Widow suspect after a six month
trail of embezzlement and fraud, once
again failed to snare its subject.
ELENA SANDOVAL, 17, stands defiantly in front of the BMW, her
don't-fuck-with-me stare in direct contrast with her come-fuck-me
RADIO NEWSCASTER (V.O.)
Blue Bay Police Detective Michael
Morrison was able to recover over
$400,000 in stolen money, but the
suspect, described as Female, between
eighteen and thirty, remains at large...
Marie reaches out with a trembling hand, turns off the stereo,
then leans out of the car window.
I'm... so... sorry...
Elena smiles wryly.
You will be.
And she means it...

INT. BLUE BAY HIGH AUDITORIUM - MORNING
The auditorium is packed with the Blue Bay High student body. The
natural order is clear, the pastel flock at the front, the meat
headed jocks in the center, and the rejects at the back.
Marie is amongst her sweater monkey friends, but she's still
shocked by what happened out in the parking lot...
(handing over a present)
Happy birthday, babe. They ain't
diamonds, but you're just gonna have to
wait for those...
