Various groups of people wearing a set colour of gloves- socialising, eating food (sandwiches, burger etc..), couple holding hands, pupils on phones/texting, typing on a laptop, spudding to greet, makeup being applied etc...
RUPERT (Blue Gloves) and his friends enter a classroom
FIONA (Red Gloves) with her friends are socialising in this classroom doing some work, having a laugh
Rupert is the voice over introducing the way of life for the glove system in society.
This is my school and these are my fellow students. Note how all the groups of friends are wearing the same colour gloves. Your gloves determine who you socialise with, walk with, eat with and even talk to. Society has been divided. You're either blue or red and that's how it is. No-one dares challenge the colour of their gloves or you'd be shamed. This is me, my name is Rupert; eighteen years old, only child, grade-A student and part of the Blues. This is Fiona, the love of my life- she is part of the Reds.
RUPERT and friends sit in the room where Fiona and her friends are.
They draw eye contact- so to display the fact that they are the main two protagonists held back from the likes of their fellow gloves.
Scene 2- EXT. DAYTIME. OUTSIDE SCHOOL
FIONA and RUPERT exit classroom in their coloured groups. RUPERT waits round the corner for FIONA and when he sees her he approaches her and is upset by the fact she ignores him.
Why do you always ignore me? I know I'm Blue but you are so cold to me.
You know its not right for us to be together in public; Red and Blues aren't meant for eachother, but us were different.
Scene 3- EXT. DAYTIME. BUS JOURNEY
RUPERT- Sighs takes Fionas hand and they walk to the bus stop together.
On the bus Rupert Stands and Fiona sits (Only the reds are allowed to sit down). Fiona explains to Rupert how its just too soon to let her friends and family know that they are together.
Scene 4- EXT. DAYTIME. FIONA'S ROAD
They get off the bus near to Fiona's house. They walk and talk.
I'm not doing it any more Fiona, I love you and can't bare to be so apart from you, forget what everyone thinks/knows as right lets be together. You either show what we have... or lose me.
Just as Fiona goes to reply she see notices her fellow Reds accross the road entering a shop, she pushes Rupert round a corner- to his humiliation. Quickly says goodbye and runs over before they notice that shes with Rupert (a BLUE-Forbidden and wrong in the eyes of the Reds)
Fiona unaware of how she's left Rupert feeling heads out with her friend's
Rupert is left heading home sad and upset over Fiona's approach to their relationship.
A mellow and dull score is played over this slow stroll back to his house.
Scene 5- INT. EVENING. RUPERT'S BEDROOM
RUPERT sits at his desk attempting to do some homework, distracted by his thoughts of Fiona and saddened at how his love for her has been taken away by the colour of his gloves he spots a RED felt tip on his desk and attempts to colour in his gloves. This Fails
He tries to pull the treads of the glove to unravel the colour and rip them up. This fails.
He goes in the kitchen and finds his mums dye and pours it in a bowl, he dies them red and leaves them to dry, seeming slightly happier he turns around and sees them BLUE. This attempt also fails.
He takes his gloves off and puts them in his draw, fed up he lays his head in his hands when he takes his hands away again the gloves appear on his hands. He marches into the kitchen and dumps the gloves in the bin. He returns to his bedroom. Rupert lays on his bed picks up a book to read. His mum comes in with the gloves.
Rupert I found your gloves in the bin? You must have misplaced them.
RUPERT snatches the gloves and puts them on.
(This scene will be accompanied by a voice over of Rupert explaining how the gloves are something you have to live with and how many attempts to lose them they will always be a part of you... if people's attitudes changed then maybe gloves will not play such a role in society and people could have what they wanted. He wants Fiona.)
RUPERT text's Fiona- This is it. Mine tomorrow 9am. Or forget us. love Rupert. x
Switches off the light and goes to sleep.
