EXT. SUBURBAN NEIGHBOURHOOD – DAYTIME
A HOUSE is pictured with front lawn and driveway, sidewalk in foreground. The sky overhead is blue and cloudless, and birds are heard chirping in the distance. The mood is pleasant, serene.
THE HOUSE’S LAWN, quite different from those of the adjacent properties, is more brown than green, and is slowly being flooded by a tipped-over fountain. The latter spits instead of spouting through its cornucopia of decorative cement sparrows onto the dried grass, as it has been blocked up by a garden gnome (in an apparent attempt to drown the figurine).
THE HOUSE is in an advanced state of dilapidation. Its construct consists of a single panel with cheap siding. In fact, it isn’t really a house at all.
A BUMPER STICKER on the back of the rusting emerald-green minivan proclaims: “NOBODY LOSES ALL THE TIME.”
