INT. HOUSE - DAY
                                                            
A young, slim, man, around 20 years of age works on a
computer. His eyes stain and his body fidgets. This is
GEORGE.
                                                            
                       GEORGE
Ok, I did what you wanted. Can i
go now?
                                                            
We get the feeling George is being held against his will.
                                                            
                       GEORGE
      (Yelling)
