At First Sight

AT FIRST SIGHT

EXT. VALLEY - DUSK
Gold light dappling across a valley that seems to reach on forever.
We ease back, revealing more - taking in the visual feast - finally
discovering a seated figure facing out over the valley - a DOG at
his feet.

VIRGIL ANDERSON, life ahead of him - someone seemingly at ease with
himself. As we watch him a moment - SOUNDS become prominent -
whistle of the wind through the grass - a bird's wings as it takes
flight - a tree branch creaking under its own weight. And as he sits
there, listening, we see the last rays of sunlight slip from the
day.

BLACK - and our TITLES come up.

Then out of the darkness come a pair of HEADLIGHTS. - and we're:

EXT. NEW YORK TURNPIKE - INTO PINECREST - DUSK

An old BMW 2002 making its way up the Taconic Parkway.

INT. BMW - DUSK

On the radio: Whitney Houston's "I'll Always Love You". AMY TREMONT,
30's, driving, on the phone.

AMY
I'm lost Betsy, and you know me -
I don't wear lost well - wait, wait I'm losing you...
(the cell phone glitches)
I'm pulling over before you disappear forever.

Amy pulls off the side of the road. Wrestles with a map and the phone.

AMY
Sign? I was looking for a sign? There's no...


Her attention is caught by something off camera. She stares out into
the night..

HER POV - A small iced over pond - and in the middle - moving about
is Virgil, ICE SKATING - hockey stick in hand - moving about the
rink with an imaginary puck.

AMY (O.S.)
(distracted)
Yes... I took the first ..... no, no, I'm listening...

Virgil winds up and takes a slap at the ice with his stick - throws his hands up in the air like he just scored.

Amy smiles, peers off down the road. A sign: BEAR MTN. SPA AND
RESORT 1.4 miles.

AMY
Wait, I got it - yeah. No don't call me.. right, unless you hear from Atlanta. And fax me the designs - I want to tinker with them a bit more
... I'm going to rest - bye - I'll see you in a week.

Beep as she hangs up. Looks back out to the pond. It's empty. Shrugs - about to pull out - that love song still blaring.

AMY
Oh p-lease, Whitney.

CLICK - she shuts off the radio - and pulls back out onto the road.

EXT. BEAR MTN. HEALTH SPA - NIGHT

Amy pulling luggage out of her car. She takes a breath - clearly
she's exhausted - and starts towards the entrance.

INT. BEAR MTN. HEALTH SPA - RECEPTION DESK - NIGHT

Amy at the front desk with the Night Manager CAROLINE, 30'S,
annoyingly fit.

CAROLINE
We have a full weight room, lifecycles,
stairmasters, a spa, yoga, aerobics, spin classes...


AMY
I'm really just looking for a quick fix, here.
Do you have anything that just involves lying down?


CAROLINE
A massage.


AMY
Great. I'll have one a day. Not too early.
