A twenty-something professional man comes home from a long day at work to the apartment he shares. Exhausted, he flips on the tv as he goes about making something to eat. Suddenly, he looks up: “America’s Most Wanted” is playing on the television and, to his astonishment, the featured felon is his roommate…（这是老师给的premise）从这里开始我就开始编咯。
Ryan is lying on the couch, after he put something into the microwave. He almost forgot when the last time he watched TV was as he turned on the TV. He had a long day. His boss has been moody and threatened him that he will fire him.
Falling asleep, he was awakened by a piece of news which says:”the American Most Wanted”… …And right on that very screen, Charlie’s face cracked an awkward but fairly handsome smile on him… …
“This can’t be happening!” Ryan thought to himself, as he looked around anxiously, and sense that Charlie is in the bathroom, whistling the song “singin’ in the rain”.
The camera pans and follows Charlie walking out from the bathroom with a towel on his neck.
“What happened, honey? You look frightened.”
“Congrats, you have become a well-known American Most Wanted, and I’m leaving you!”
“I thought we made a deal.”
“What deal? I told you not to kill her but you still did! Now what can we do? What I want is to live a simple life with you and now it’s just seems impossible… …”
“Come on, we’ll figure out a way.”
“God damn it! They will throw you into jail! What am I suppose to do without you!” As Ryan ranted at Charlie, he couldn’t help sobbing.
Charlie pulls him into his arm and sighs:”ok, don’t worry baby. Let’s go to Mexico, and nobody’s gonna find us.”
“And eat nachos for our whole life?”
“haha, you get the idea.”
Point of view shot. This is the point of view of another person. She is approaching the door of the couple’s room. The camera is a hand held one. It’s not steady and smooth at all. And the person seems hurt, and baby shambles to the door.
The camera cuts to their room and they began to pack, while making small conversations. They kept packing until the sun goes down. The lighting of the room change from natural lighting to low-key lighting. Suddenly, they heard the sound of the door opening, and it seems like the door is opened with a key. Instead of taking any action, they stand still and wait the door open to see the figure behind the door… …
“What a happy couple. You sons of bitches!”
“It’s she… …Nina…” They thought to themselves.
The door opens and there appears a short girl, with blood all over her body.
“How could you still be alive?!” Charlie cried.
“Well well well, killing your creator is a novel idea I admit, but don’t forget you are not real.”
“I told you…I told you…” Ryan murmured.
“I guess you guys have seen the American Most Wanted, right? I did that. All I have to do is to add a few lines you know that. You think you can just flee to Mexico and live a happy life ever after and make my story grosser???”
“We are sorry. We never meant to kill you. Really.” Ryan says.
“Gimme a break. I never meant to make you guys fall in love with each other too! Don’t forget that I CREATED YOU. How dare you manipulate my story!”
Charlie gets down on his knees and beg:
“Just let us go, Nina. And we wont be bothering you forever!”
“I can’t.” She says, as she lights on her cigarette. Then she took out some cracked pieces of paper… …
“No!!! Don’t burn it! Don’t let us disappear! Your story is due tomorrow and if you can’t hand it in you will be in great trouble. What are you going to say to Professor Flaxman and Ashley(Nina's teaching assistant for the film class)?” said Charlie and he jumps to Nina and want to get the paper.
But she quickly stepped backwards slammed the door locked.
“It’s beyond your concerns…” She lights the paper with the cigarette as she leans on the door on her back.
Close up of the burning paper. Shooting on the flame and the fading words.
Shot#6 (establishing shot):
Cuts (will dissolve be better?) to Ryan and Charlie. Their figures start to get fuzzy and they turn into smoke starting from their feet.
The half burning papers falling to the ground, swirling…
Nina re-open the door, and it appears to be her dorm room. (POV shot)
She approaches to her chair, sits down, opens her computer and starts to type. Extremely close-up to her laptop screen. The audience can see what she typed on the screen, which is:
Hi, Ashely, it’s Nina. I think I need one more day to finish my story. Could you give me one more day?
