THE OTHER SIDE

FADE IN:

EXT. WHITE AREA - DAY
                                                            
Luke Anderson, age 20, wakes up on the ground of what
appears to be a large white room that seems to go on
forever. There are no walls or doors or windows. He looks
around and sees nothing. His head feels like its about to
explode and hurts even worse when he trys to think of how he
got here. He gets up and looks around.
                                                            
                       LUKE
      (Yelling)
HELLO? HELLO? IS ANYONE THERE?
                                                            
In the distance he sees a large mansion like house. He
starts walking towards the house.
                                                            
 
EXT. MANSION ENTRENCE - DAY
                                                            
Walking up to the front gate he sees a white sign with black
inc reading "Free to all who wish to make this there home."
Luke then walks through the gate and up the stoned walkway.
There are no trees, no grass, and no sign of anyone living
here. Its just a large stone mansion in the middle of an
endless white area. He walks up to the front door and
knocks. Noone answers so he knocks again. Still no answer.
Remembering the sign on the front gate he opens the door and
slowly creaps inside.
                                                            
 
INT. MANSION ENTRANCE - DAY
                                                            
                       LUKE
Hello? Is anyone here?
                                                            
Standing at the front door Luke looks around. The room to
the right is the living area where there is a small couch
and a television set. To the right is the recreation room
with a dart board hanging on the wall, a pool table and
various other gamming devices. Luke looks up noticing a
large glass chandelier. Infront of him is a large marble

2.

staircase with red carpet covering the steps that leads up
to the second floor. There is no dust or cobwebs anywhere.
Luke walks around exploring the house and finally ends up in
the kitchen.
                                                            
 
INT. KITCHEN - DAY
                                                            
The kitchen is like any ordinary kitchen. Sink, fridge,
oven, microwave and a preperation table in the center thats
made of white food safe tile with maple wood trimming. The
kitchen doesn't look like its ever been used before and yet
there is no dust. Along the white walls over the stove are
assorted pots and pans hanging from hooks. On the side of
the preperation table hanging by magnets is a lare veriety
of knifes. The floor is made of a light brown maple wood
that matches the trim on the preperation table. The
counter-tops are made of the same white tile as the
preperation table.
                                                            
Luke walks over to the silver door of the fridge and opens
it revieling a large variety of vegstables, meats and
liquids that are still in the packaging and without a broken
seal. He then looks on top of the fridge and finds a loaf of
bread. He pulls out a bottle of soda pop and closes the
fridge.
                                                            
                       LUKE
What the hell is this place?
                                                            
He walks over to the cubbord and opens it. There are jars
of jams and peanut-butter, rice, cans of soup, and other
assorted canned foods. Closing the door he looks around and
notices in the room adjacent to the kitchen is the dinning
area. Luke walks into the dinning area.
                                                            
 
INT. DINNING AREA - DAY
                                                            
The dinning area is a large room with a large, ovil, dark
brown dinning table in the center that has eight seats
around it with three on each side and two on the ends.
Silver plates, spoons, forks, knifes and napkins are set in
each place. There is a large vase with red roses in the
center of the dinning table.
                                                            

3.

Luke stands in the doorway.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Okay. This is really creepy.
                                                            
Luke sits down at the end of the table and stares at the
vase filled with roses till he hears a knock at the front
door. Hearing the knock makes him slightly jump and listens
for the knock again. The knock comes a second time and Luke
runs to the front door to see who it is.
                                                            
 
INT. MANSION ENTRANCE - DAY
                                                            
Luke steps lightly to the curtin covered window and peaks
outside. Ashley Pearson, age 32, is standing outside in
blue jeans and a white shirt. She knocks on the door again.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
Hello? Is anybody here? I seen
the sign on the gate... Is
anybody here?
                                                            
Ashley bangs on the door louder and Luke opens the door.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
Oh, hello. I saw the sign on the
gate and I have no idea where I am
or how I got here.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Neither do I. I saw the sign as
well so I just came on in. Please
come inside.
                                                            
Luke opens the front door wider and Ashley walks inside and
takes her white shoes off and places then next to the door
then looks at Luke's shoes.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
Don't you have any mannors. Take
your shoes off inside the house.
That way you don't track in dirt
from outside.
                                                            

4.

Luke takes his shoes off and places them next to Ashleys
shoes.
                                                            
                       LUKE
But thats just it. There is no
dirt outside. No dirt, no grass,
no trees, no birds. Nothing.
Don't you find that strange?
                                                            
After his shoes are off, both Luke and Ashley start walking
into the living area. Ashley is walking slowLY looking all
around, amazed at her surroundings.
                                                            
 
INT. LIVING AREA - DAY
                                                            
Walking into the living area Luke looks at a white leather
recliner that wasn't there when he walked through here
before.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
I think this whole place is odd.
There is nothing out there.
Nothing at all. Did you notice
there is not even a blue sky, and
its not cloud cover either. I can
tell the diffrence.
                                                            
Ashley walks over to the couch and sits down, while Luke
walks over to the recliner and stares at it.
                                                            
                       LUKE
This chair.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
What about it?
                                                            
                       LUKE
It wasn't here a moment ago. Just
the couch.
                                                            
Luke touches the leather recliner then sits down in it.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
Well maybe you didn't notice it
before.
                                                            

5.

                       LUKE
Im sure thats it. It's white and
the walls are white. It blends
right in. I must be under alot of
stress considering the situation
we're in.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
Yes. Im sure thats it. I don't
know about you but im famished. Is
there any food in the kitchen?
                                                            
Ashley gets up and walkes into the kitchen.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Yes. Theres food in the fridge
and in the cabinet. The food in
the fridge needs to be cooked. If
you want something fast then there
is stuff to make a sandwitch with.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
      (From in the
       kitchen)
Okay. Sounds good. Would you
like one?
                                                            
                       LUKE
No thanks.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
      (From in the
       kitchen)
Wheres the bread at?
                                                            
                       LUKE
On top of the fridge.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
      (From the kitchen)
Found it. By-the-way. My names
Ashley Pearson.
                                                            
                       LUKE
My names Luke. Luke Anderson.
                                                            

6.

                       ASHLEY
Nice to meet you Luke. So what do
you do?
                                                            
                       LUKE
      (Sarcastic)
What is this, twenty questions?
                                                            
Ashley walks back in the living area and sits down on the
couch with a sandwitch and paper-towl in her lap.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
I just like to know the people
around me. Thats all. Just to
make sure your not a serial killer
or anything.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Oh. Well im twenty years of age.
I am a welder by trade...
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
      (Interupting)
Welder? I hear that pays well?
                                                            
                       LUKE
It does. What about you? What do
you do?
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
Im a registered RN. It pays okay.
I get by from paycheak to
paycheak. (chuckling)
                                                            
Luke shifts in the chair and props his right leg over his
left knee and innerlocks his fingers togeather on his
stomach.
                                                            
                       LUKE
That tends to be the way of life.
Surviving from paycheak to
paycheak. Working yourself to
death just to break even. Thats
ninety percent of the human race.
                                                            

7.

Ashley laughs softly covering her mouth to block the sight
of food inside.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
I like you Luke. Your an okay
guy.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Well I tend to think so, and if
you will excuse me I think im
going to go look around a little
bit more.
                                                            
Luke gets up out of the recliner and heads to the entry-way.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
And a polite one too. Waite up
and ill go with you.
                                                            
Ashley takes the last bite of her food, gets up and follows
Luke into the entry-way.
                                                            
 
INT. MANSION ENTRANCE - DAY
                                                            
Luke and Ashley enter the entryway and stop infront of the
staircase.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
So, whos house do you think this
is anyway?
                                                            
                       LUKE
I haven't the faintest idea. This
whole place is wierd.
                                                            
Both Luke and Ashley walk slowly up the staircase to the
second floor.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
Your telling me. Do you have any
idea as of how we got here?
                                                            

8.

                       LUKE
Not at all. There is alot of
questions I have that I don't have
the answers to.
                                                            
 
INT. SECOND FLOOR - DAY
                                                            
Luke and Ashley arrive at the top of the staircase to the
second floor.
                                                            
The upper floor is a long white hallway with door in each
direction. The railing is made of a light brown maple wood
with rose engravings.
                                                            
Luke and Ashley walk down the hallway to the right. Ashley
stops and studies the engravings on the railings.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
Look at this, Luke. Look at the
detail on the wood.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Flowers.
                                                            
Luke kneals down and touches the engraved wood.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
Roses. Look at the exquesit
detail. The rose peadles... The
stems... The thorns.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Whoever made this is clearly an
expert... Come on. Lets see
whats behind some of these doors.
                                                            
Luke and Ashley continue down the halway and stop infront of
light brown, maple door with a brass doornob. Luke opens
the door slowly and enters.
                                                            
 
INT. BEDROOM - DAY
                                                            
The bedroom is a large room with white walls and a large,
king size bed in the upper left corner with a plush,

9.

burgandy velvet blanket. Silver, silk sheets that matched
the plush pillowcases ontop of a hunny brown, maple, wooden
frame. Next to the bed was a small nightstand with a small
black phone sitting on it. Agenst the bed is a darge
dresser with a standing mirror. The same color as the
bedframe. The seat was a matching color with a red, velvet
cusion. Against the back wall is a large walkthrough glass
door that leads to the balcony. Two smaller doors on the
right side are two smaller, wooden doors. One leads to a
large walk-in closet. The other leads to a large bathroom.
Both doors are open revieling there contents.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
      (breathtaken)
Wow. Have you ever seen anything
so beautiful?
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
      (Breathtaken)
Maybe on MTV or something. Look
at this. Look at the bed, and
look whats on the table over
there.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
      (EXCITED)
A phone.
                                                            
Ashley runs over to the phone, picks up the reciever and
listens.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
A dial-tone.
                                                            
She dials a number and a phone in the next bedroom starts to
ring. Luke rushes to the next room to answer it.
                                                            
                       LUKE
      (ON THE PHONE)
Hello?
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
Luke. Is that you?
                                                            
The phone clicks and Luke walks back into the room.
                                                            

10.

                       LUKE
Yes, it was me. Apparently there
is a phone in every room. There
all connected to each other.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
Shit.
                                                            
Ashley hangs up the reciever and sits on the edge of the
bed. Luke walks over to her and sits down next to her.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Looks like we're stuck here. Might
as well make the best of it. At
least until we get some answers.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
Ture. No use in moping around
about something we have no control
over. So i call this room.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Okay. Fair enough. The room next
door is pretty much the same.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
There probably all the same.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Yeah, but we can rearange them
later if we want.
                                                            
Ashley gets up and walks out to the balcony.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
Luke. Luke. Come here.
                                                            
Luke gets up and runs to the balcony.
                                                            
 
EXT. BEDROOM BALCONY - DAY
                                                            
Luke runs up beside her and looks over the edge. Grass has
started to form outside the front gate in spots.
                                                            

11.

                       LUKE
That wasn't there before, was it?
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
No, it wasn't.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Come on, lets get a closer look.
                                                            
 
EXT. FRONT GATE - DAY
                                                            
Luke and Ashley arrive at the front gate. Grass and dirt
has started to form. Rich, green grass and now there was
more then when on the balcony. A small dirt trail has
stared to form in front of the gate.
                                                            
                       LUKE
This defenetly wasn't here before.
I think i would have remembered
something like this.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
Theres more of it now then when we
saw it from my balcony.
                                                            
Ashley turns around and faces the mansion.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
Luke. Look.
                                                            
Luke turns around then turns to Ashley. Grass has started
to form around the stone walkway that leads to the house.
                                                            
                       LUKE
You are way to happy about this.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
      (EXTATIC)
Thats it.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Whats it?
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
Thats the answer for the grass.
                                                            

12.

                       LUKE
Care to explain. Im a little slow
right now.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
Don't you see? Happyness and the
grass. There both connected.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Have you been sniffing paint
thinner or something?
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
Seriously. Think about it.
                                                            
                       LUKE
The only thing im thinking right
now is that of all the people to
be stuck with, it has to be a
total nut. I mean, are you
hearing yourself? Your saying
that rays of happyness made grass
grow.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
Think about it. When we first got
here there was nothing here except
this house. We got to know each
othere and we were happy.. We saw
the bedroom. We were even more
happy... We saw the grass first
when we were on the balcony,
right?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Yeah. So what?
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
There was only a little bit of
grass then. Not near this much.
When we got here there was none on
the inside of the gate next to the
walkway.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Whats your point?
                                                            

13.

                       ASHLEY
When I saw the grass I was
exstatic. Thats when the grass
inside the gate formed. Don't you
see? The happyer we are the more
grass grows.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Paint thinner nothing. Can I ask
you a personal question?
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
Sure.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Were you ever dropped as a child?
Possibly on your head a few times?
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
Im being serious. Think about it.
                                                            
                       LUKE
So your saying if I am really
happy that a whole valley will
appear?
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
Who knows. It could happen.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Normally I would call you a nut
but under the circumstances I cant
argue with you.
                                                            
LUKE and ASHLEY head back into the house.
                                                            
 
INT. LIVING AREA - DAY
                                                            
LUKE sits on the couch while ASHLEY looks around the living
area. ASHLEY then notices two cellphones sitting on the
table next to the kitchen doorway.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
Look Luke. Cell phones. Two of
them, and there is a not here.
                                                            

14.

LUKE gets up and walks over to ASHLEY and picks up the note.
                                                            
                       LUKE
"CELLULAR PHONES FOR EVERYONE.
THEY MIGHT PROVE USEFUL IN THE
FUTURE."
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
Someone had to have left tem here.
They can't just appear out of
thin air.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Who knows. It could be possible.
Even you said happyness makes the
grass grow.
                                                            
LUKE looks at the phone.
                                                            
                       LUKE
They have our names in the contact
list.
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
Yeah. This is starting to really
creep my out. Well im going to
look around a little bit more. Let
me know if you need anything.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Will do. Oh, by-the-way. What do
you want for lunch?
                                                            
                       ASHLEY
Whatever your having will be fine.
                                                            
Both LUKE and ASHLEY leave the room.
                                                            
 
INT. KITCHEN - DAY
                                                            
LUKE walks into the kitchen and opens the fridge. He pulls
out some items and places them on the prepreation table.
There is a knock at the front door.
                                                            
 

15.

INT. MANSION ENTRANE - DAY
                                                            
KATY WARNER is at the front door. LUKE opens the door.
                                                            
                       KATY
Hi.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Hello. Let me guess. You just
showed up here and saw the sign on
the front gate?
                                                            
                       KATY
How did you know?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Your not the only one.
                                                            
                       KATY
There are others?
                                                            
                       LUKE
Yes. Two as a matter of fact. Me
and another woman named Ashley.
                                                            
                       KATY
Good. Maybe you can tell me whats
going on.
                                                            
                       LUKE
I wish I could. We don't know
anything either.
                                                            
                       KATY
Well, is what the sign says true?
Is this really a place I can stay?
There is nowhere else. Just till
I figure out what is going on. I
won't be any trouble, I promise.
                                                            
                       LUKE
Not a problem. Your welcome to
stay as long as you want.
                                                            
LUKE opens the door wider to let KATY inside.
                                                            


FADE OUT.

I like it so far. It is holding my attention and making me wonder exactly where the characters are and how they got there. The concept of happiness making the world come together is an interesting concept. It needs not to be blind happiness but true happiness. What are the consequences for asking hard questions? Questions that might not make one happy? I think you might be on to an interesting screenplay. There is not enough there yet to discuss the character development but I am getting the characters that have been introduced. There is one thing that is bothering me. That is that there is a good bit of typos. I know this is a work in progress so much of that will be straightened out. Have fun writing and let me know when the screenplay is complete.
