PERIERA HOME – PRESENT DAY FRANKIE crawls through a dog door. She walks into the livingroom where… DEAN PERIERA, 30 years old, hefty, sleeps in a lazyboy. FRANKIE (hushed) Get up, Get up. Frankie uses the footrest to crawl up onto her dad’s belly. FRANKIE (cont’d) We have to go outside. DEAN (waking) What’s the matter baby? She sniffles. He notices. EXT. PERIERA HOME – BACK/FRONT YARDS – PRESENT DAY The back door opens and Dean carries Frankie to the yard. The first yellow rays ofsunlight hit their faces. He looks over the lawn, an empty bowl, water tin and a doghouse posting the name MEGAN. The gate has been left OPEN.

DEAN Okay sweetheart go check in the house, see if she’s in there. He lets Frankie down on the ground. She crawls inside the doghouse. There’s no one home. DEAN (cont’d) Megan! (CONTINUED)
