The Opening Scene
INT. ATTIC – MORNING

Lilly, are you up there?
JASON climbs up into the attic, not dressed for the day and sees her in the dress.
They begin kissing.
ATTIC – LATER
Lilly is laying on top of Jason’s chest as he caresses her face.
Any luck with your dad?
You haven’t called him yet? You ready to tell me what happened to him?
I would if I knew.
This might be a good time to introduce him to Danny and tell him about everything. Maybe he’s changed?
EXT. RIVER – MORNING
A deer lowers it’s head to take a drink from the river.
BEHIND THE BUSHES
JACK TURNER (55) Hides in the bushes with a rifle pointed at the deer. He’s skinny with messy hair and a beard. He FIRES the gun as the deer falters to the ground.
Jack drags the deer, tied up with rope, behind him. Something within the bushes catches his attention.
An animal carcass lays on the ground. He kneels down to examine it closer. The carcass is completely cleaned of any hair or meat. He looks worried.
