The Tunnel Trap

FADE IN: EXT. PARK – DAY

There are only a small number of people walking. Only 2-3 people jogging. There are birds and pigeons flying, some are on the floor, and some near the pond. Trees are so high that it provides a great deal of shades and allowing little sunlight through. A cement pathway directs where people should be walking.

A TALL MAN in his mid 30’s with thick glasses is sitting on a bench reading the newspaper. A couple walks pass him.

A WOMAN in her early 20’s with blonde hair dressed in a pink sports bra and black shorts is listening to her iPhone. She walks by the TALL MAN. He stares at her.

After the WOMAN is about 15 feet away from the tall man, he gets up, leaves the newspaper on the bench, and follows her. The woman turns left to enter the inner part of the park. The man waits in the corner and spies on the girl.

EXT. INNER PART OF THE PARK – DAY

The pathway is very narrow filled with tall bushes. The birds and pigeons and the wind hitting the trees and bushes are the only sound the can be heard.

The TALL MAN makes a left and follows the WOMAN.

The WOMAN ties her right shoe laces. The TALL MAN walks fast.

A couple enters from the opposite direction from the TALL MAN and WOMAN are walking. The TALL MAN turns around and takes his cell phone out from his right pocket.

TALL MAN

Hey, George! What’s happening…

The couple passes the TALL MAN. The WOMAN continues to walk.

TALL MAN (CONT’D)

Well I am thinking about selling my place…

TALL MAN’S POV

He sees the WOMAN make a right-turn.

BACK TO SCENE

He puts his cell phone in his right pocket and continues to follow her.

EXT. TUNNEL IN THE PARK – DAY

The distance of the tunnel is about 20 feet. There are lights in the tunnel but the lights are not on. The walls are filled with graffiti. The area midway in the tunnel is dark making it really difficult to see anything except the light before and after the tunnel.

The WOMAN enters the tunnel. The TALL MAN walks faster.

TALL MAN’S POV

He sees the WOMAN exits the tunnel. He enters the tunnel and walks even faster.

The WOMAN makes a sudden right turn.

BACK TO SCENE

The TALL MAN starts to run.

Phone rings.

The man is midway in the tunnel and stops running.

WOMAN (O.S.)

Hello?…Hey, June…Yeah, I’ll be there like in twenty minutes. I am walking in the park right now.

The man takes his knife out from his right pocket. He walks slowly toward the WOMAN.

WOMAN (O.S.) (CONT’D)

…I’ll see you later okay?…Love you too!

The man quickly walks and makes a right-turn.

TALL MAN’S POV

Two police officers point their guns toward him. The WOMAN is behind two police officers.

THE TWO POLICE OFFICERS

(loud)

Drop your weapon! Put your hands up where I can see them. Now!

BACK TO SCENE

The TALL MAN drops the knife. He turns around and runs. A police officer tackles him down on the floor and handcuffs him. The woman walks and squads next to the TALL MAN.

WOMAN

(smiles)

You have the right remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to talk to a lawyer and have him…

FADE OUT.
