SCENE 1
The sound of a vacuum fades in through the darkness. We see a room, not quite neat and not yet messy. It is well decorated, colorful and colloquial. A couple sits on opposite ends of the room while a young Korean boy vacuums the floor. The man in the chair is reading a book on polyamory, the woman is on a polished white laptop. She begins to type fast and loud. The man doesn’t seem too perturbed by this until at last he raises his head from the book.

ROD
Knock knock.

The woman stops typing and looks up thoughtfully.

MINDA
Who’s there?

ROD
Get.

MINDA (SMILING)
Get who?

ROD
That’s all. Get. As in get the fuck out of the living room.

Fade to title.
