SCRIPT

INT DAY – MARGARIDA’S ROOM (PRESENT)

Margarida looks anxious, she grabs her tobacco pack twice to take a cigarette but gives up, while sweeping instagram’s feed.

MARGARIDA

(Scrolling down on Afonso’s instagram photos)

You’ve been very quiet lately, so quiet…

Someone knocks on the door.

CLOSE-UP IN THE ROOM

INT DAY – MARGARIDA’S ROOM (PRESENT)

Margarida and Sara are sitting on the couch and talking. Sara looks at Margarida, looking worried.

MARGARIDA

What’s up?

SARA

I got so worried after your last text.

MARGARIDA

I need to take this weight off me and get rid of this guilt, Sara.

I sometimes lean against the window, sitting, without being able to take my eyes off that idiot’s window…

You hardly see anything, I know, but…

CUT TO FRONT BUILDING WINDOW

EXT DAY – FRONT OF A BUILDING ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STREET (PRESENT)

We see the front of a building, then focusing on a window with its curtains closed.

MARGARDIA (V.O.)

… I always hope he forgets about the curtains and let them half-open. Damn…

CUT TO MARGARIDA’S HOUSE

EXT DAY – IN FRONT OF THE BUILDING (PAST)

Reliving a past dawn, Margarida is in the street, standing at the front of the building, smoking and looking at the window.

MARGARIDA (V.O.)

Yesterday I got home late, it was almost morning. I was in front of the door, half frozen, no hurries, and suddenly I lost track of time, staring at his window. You can see so much better from the street, Sara.

I pictured myself lying there, pushed by that frenzy he used to make me feel before but that nobody could tell.

CUT AND FOLLOW TO FOCUS ON AFONSO’S WINDOW

EXT DAY – STREET VIEW OF AFONS’S WINDOW (PAST)

You see the building and then a hand/body (if possible, Afonso’s), closing the curtains, and lights on in the back.

MARGARIDA (V.O.)

I wished I was invited to join them yesterday but then thought about how we would be too many and would want to have her gone.

CUT WITH MARGARIDA’S CLOSE-UP

INT DAY – MARGARIDA’S ROOM (PAST)

Reliving the night before, Margarida is standing by the window. She looks like reliving the moment, she sighs, closing her eyes.

MARGARIDA (V.O.)

Just the two of us would be enough so I would feel he was no longer punishing me… like when he pushes them against the window and looks ahead as if he were looking for me.

CUT TO THE ROOM WITH CLOSE-UP

INT DAY – MARGARIDA’S ROOM (PRESENT)

Back to the present, Margarida continues talking to Sara, both sitting on the couch.

SARA

Oh Margarida, please stop walking on thin ice…

Margarida is still in the room but we then see Afonso arriving, walking down the street, head down, disheveled, alone. While we see him, they continue talking.

MARGARIDA

There’s no escape out of it, Sara. Some days, I just see him coming alone, head down… Damn it… I can’t resist on those days, no way you can get this feeling.

CLOSE-UP OF MARGARIDA

INT DAY – MARGARIDA’S ROOM (PAST)

While lighting a cigarette and leaning on the porch, she half-closes her eyes, with a quick smile and a satisfied soul kind of look.

MARGARIDA

That serves you right, you asshole…

SARA AND MARGARIDA CLOSE-UP

INT DAY – MARGARIDA ROOM (PRESENT)

Margarida smiles, with a naughty look, still listening to what Sara tells her.

SARA

Be careful, such obsession is slowly devouring you. You already know that bastard.

MARGARIDA

Don’t worry. This soul I have is not fragile, nor so small as you think!

THE END

 

Note: Margarida can be translated to Daisy.

  1. I actually wanted to develop a brief message in order to appreciate you for all the great ideas you are giving out at this website. My extensive internet look up has at the end been honored with professional know-how to talk about with my friends and family. I would point out that most of us visitors are undoubtedly fortunate to exist in a really good site with so many outstanding people with useful solutions. I feel somewhat happy to have seen your webpage and look forward to so many more exciting moments reading here. Thanks once again for all the details. https://bronchitismed.com otc bronchitis meds

  2. Thanks for the tips on credit repair on all of this blog. What I would advice people is to give up the mentality that they can buy now and pay later. As a society we tend to do this for many things. This includes vacations, furniture, and items we want. However, you need to separate your wants from all the needs. While you are working to improve your credit score you have to make some sacrifices. For example you can shop online to save money or you can go to second hand stores instead of expensive department stores for clothing.

  3. I precisely had to appreciate you all over again. I’m not certain the things I might have done in the absence of the actual ideas documented by you directly on such field. It became a real difficult condition for me personally, but discovering a new professional form you managed it forced me to jump for delight. I’m just happier for the guidance and even have high hopes you find out what a powerful job you’re doing instructing most people through your blog. I am sure you’ve never encountered all of us.
