Trailer Opening Scene

Ext. Philadelphia City Hall – NIGHT

Hot summer night. Philadelphia is sweaty and dirty and steamy. A close POV sweeps down Broad Street’s sidewalk weaving through trash dirt and clutter at foot level past a PANHANDLER and across the street in front of Philadelphia City Hall, past the statue in the front, the CAMERA flies up the side of the building, up to the observation deck where we see DESTINY DRIFTING and LLOYD BENSON looking out over the city,

DESTINY DRIFTING, a rising, young and ambitious political aide to the Mayor of Philadelphia and LLOYD BENSON her slightly older and wiser personal aide look out over the city of Philadelphia.

LLOYD Benson

You okay?

Destiny Drifting

We’re going to be fine. We will make Councilman Robbins listen. Besides, it’s the only thing to do and when you do something for the right reasons, nothing bad happens.

LLOYD BENSON

This your defining political rule? Want me to shoot a few holes in it?

DESTINY DRIFTING

There could be a few exceptions.
