INT. CLARK HOUSE — DAY

rlackey - on 08/06/2008 3 versions.

A child, ANDREW CLARK is enjoying his birthday. He is standing at a dining room table with his mother SARAH CLARK and his father ROGER CLARK. The room is full of half unpacked boxes. They have recently arrived from England. Around the table are six chairs, each pulled slightly away from the table, seating Andrew's favourite stuffed toy animals. On the table is a beautiful chocolate cake with ten lit candles standing proudly.

ANDREW CLARK

(narration, Manchester accent) So, it's 1955 and I'm now ten years old. There's ten candles, so that makes me ten.

Andrew leans forward and blows out the candles.

ANDREW CLARK (CONT'D)

(narration) At ten years old, presents are everything. We'd just arrived here from old Blighty and so we didn't have much.

In the garage are moving boxes and crates stacked to the rafters, and between two boxes is a brand new Red Schwinn bicycle. Roger unties the blindfold.

Andrew just stares in disbelief.

Andrew walks slowly to his new bicycle, touches the handlebars and looks at his father.
