“Inure” – PYRMDPLAZA
INT. JULIE’S APARTMENT – DAY
Julie is sleeping on her couch.
The phone rings and startles her awake.
She picks it up and looks at the person calling.
She tosses the phone and goes back to sleep.
The phone starts ringing again but she just lets it ring.
After a while, she picks up the phone and turns it off.
Can I have some quiet?
She goes back to sleep.
The house bell starts ringing.
Julie gets up
She goes to the door and pushes the buzzer.
She opens the door and goes back to the couch.
Simon walks in.
Are you ok? Been trying to call you.
Simon drops his bag.
What do you want Simon? I’m not… What do you want?
Hey, listen, I’m not here for a fight. I have some good news.
Simon opens his bag and brings out the map.
What is it?
Take a look. What do you think … where do you think it is?
Julie gets up from the couch with a stern look.
She takes a look at the map.
Simon nods, with a smile.
I will leave this here, with you. Think about it…
There’s nothing to think about. We have to do it. It’s what mom would want.
And your retirement?
Julie, look at me. I need this.
This will take a while. What about your little doll?
We need to do this. I never thought I could get that but we do.
Ok. How did you find it?
It doesn’t matter. All that matters is we have the map and we can finally get that piece she wanted.
Julie smiles and then she stops smiling.
I’ll have to check this out.
Of course. Let me know what you decide.
Simon closes his bag and picks it up to leave.
Let me know what you find out.
Simon walks towards the door. He opens the door and while holding the doorknob he turns around and smiles at Julie.
Simon walks out.
Julie takes a closer look at the map.
Wow! Could this be true?
You’ve become inure
When you’re used to the bad shit
That is around you
