ROLL BEGINNING CREDITS.


EXT. CALIFORNIA VINEYARD - DAY


AN AERIAL SHOT OF VINEYARD.


The vineyard is large and luscious, its green vines contrasting against the somber khaki of the Sonoma valley. Nat King Cole’s “L-O-V-E” plays throughout the shot.


A STEADY SHOT FROM GROUND LEVEL OF WORKERS TENDING THE FIELD.


BIRDS CHIRP IN THE SKY.

A RISING SHOT SETTLING ON A LARGE CALIFORNIA HOUSE.


TEXT APPEARS ACROSS SCREEN, IT READS: “Five Years Later.”


“L-O-V-E” DROWNS OUT AND VOICES CAN BE HEARD ARGUING OFF SCREEN


VOICE 1 (O.S)

(a female voice)

I don’t know what you’re talking about you’re insane.


VOICE 2 (O.S)

(a male voice)

I’m insane?! You’re the one that told them to come over?!


CUT TO: INT. BEDROOM - CONTINUOUS


HALLIE PARKER, 16, sits on her bed, staring at an iphone. Across from her is her sister, ANNIE JAMES, 16, also on her own separate bed, also staring at an iphone. They are SILENT. The VOICES can still be HEARD.


VOICE 1 (O.S)

Well you should have stopped me!


VOICE 2 (O.S)

Oh! Like I’m supposed to read your mind?! How am I supposed to know what you want Elizabeth?!


VOICE 1 (O.S)

Isn’t that what marriage is Nick?! Being each other’s better halves?! Until death do we part?! For better or for worse?!


VOICE 2 (O.S)

I didn’t think marriage would mean taking care of someone who needs to be in a psychiatric ward!


We hear a VASE shatter.


VOICE 2 CONT’D (O.S)

That was my mother's!


Hallie looks over at Annie.


HALLIE

Annie, mom and dad are fighting again.


Annie stays SILENT for a few seconds.


ANNIE

You know I was talking to Melissa from school and I told her about our whole situation and she said it wasn’t normal for us to be separated from birth.


ANOTHER VASE is heard smashed OFF SCREEN.


HALLIE

Screw her.


ANNIE

That’s how I felt. Reuniting our parents was the best thing we could have done.


Another SMASH is heard.


HALLIE

Agreed.


A KNOCK IS HEARD AT THEIR DOOR. They both look over. In walks NICK and ELIZABETH, the two’s mother and father.


NICK

Annie, Hallie, we having something to announce.


Annie and Hallie look at their parents.


ELIZABETH

Your father and I are getting a divorce.


A few seconds of silence.


HALLIE

What the fuck! How could you?! That’s unbelievable! Divorce?!


NICK

I mean your mother and I made it work for another five years but you couldn’t expect us to last when you brought us back together. We got divorced for a reason.


ANNIE

Quoi?! Pourquoi?! Merde! Vous êtes imbeciles!


Hallie and Annie continue to RANT - Annie RANTING in FRENCH.


NICK

Ah shit. How did we let this happen.


ELIZABETH

This time can I take Hallie?


NICK

Yeah that’s cool.
