Film Treatment I

First, a scene with a gun.

A woman, short, bovine, takes it in her hand. “Stop right there,” she says to no one in particular.

Next scene: a beach, three tall women.

“Dare we bathe in that thing?” one of the tall women asks, nodding towards the beach.

They all three shed their towels and hurry towards the water.

Scene III – a courthouse.

Do you know why you’re here? the judge asks the short, bovine woman.

She nods.

Subsequent scene, tomorrow.

I haven’t worn shoes this comfortable in a long time, one tall woman says aloud.

The other two tall women reflect upon this.

Finale: a prison.

A short, bovine woman grumbles to herself.

What is that you’re saying? asks a guard.

She doesn’t respond.
