An Introduction

INT. LIVING ROOM DAY

ATISHA and SANA are checking their phones in opposite ends of the room. Suddenly, ATISHA gets up, gets her mask, and asks,

ATISHA
Market jaa rahe hain, tumhaare liye kuchh laana hai?

SANA
Kya laane jaa rahe ho?

ATISHA
Anti depressant. Khatam ho gayi hai.

SANA
Chips le aana. Cold drink rakhi hai?

ATISHA
Nahi wo bhi laani hai.

SANA
Ek litre waali le aana.

ATISHA
Cool. Cash hai thoda sa?

SANA
Haan.

SANA hands ATISHA a bit of cash, and ATISHA leaves.

Time passes. SANA checks her phone, takes the dogs for a walk, plays a game of checkers with MA, winning for the first time. They put their game away and it’s late in the afternoon when she hears ATISHA’s voice calling from outside.

EXT. GARDEN LATE AFTERNOON

ATISHA is calling their sister, with excitement.

ATISHA
Sana! Bahar aao!

SANA opens the door, squinting for a second in the sunlight, and laughs.

SANA
Ye kya hai?

She is looking at the cycle that ATISHA is leaning from.

ATISHA
Nayi cycle le li!

SANA
Aur chips?

ATISHA
Shit.

Fade to black.
