Can a bunch of drunks help beautiful Nicola make the right decision ?
Synopsis/Details: 

Alice, Dan and Suzi hang around a bar, talking drunkenly about things. Dan tells Suzi, his girlfriend, that he has to visit his
brother, Dick, at his new house, where they meet Nicola, a tall, beautiful young woman, Dick's girlfriend.

Dick's place is almost a mansion, with many rooms. Nicola and Dick insult their guests and point out they are drunks. Dan and
Suzi admit this, whilst Alice pretends to be Suzi's mother.

Dick and Nicola produce a drinks cabinet full of bottles of spirits and liquers, to tempt the drunks, but Dan persuades them
to abstain as he is suspicious there is a plan to get them drunk, and commit a crime, blaming it on them.

They manage to keep off the booze, but Nicola then wants to stage a scene, in which she will swim in her bikini up to Dick,
who is to hold a bunch of grapes in his hand, so she can emerge from the water of their swimming pool and eat one of the
grapes. But, in the end, Dick snatches the grapes away. Nicola is disappointed, as this re-enactment of a scene from a film
is to be her "perfect moment".

She has a row with Dick and decides to leave him, prompted by the three alcoholics.

Nicola visits the bar where the three drunks congregate, and admits that there are no perfect moments in life, only "special
moments".

The Writer: Peter Gartner

I wrote a few screenplays a while back, but now I have a place to submit them. At the moment I am painting in watermixable oils and have a gallery at FineArtAmerica. I am concentrating on art now, but if there is some interest in my screenplays, I could submit more. I start with "The Lightship". I have now posted some more. I want to create original scenarios with surprises for the audience. I do not want my scripts to be predictable. The unusual is always best. A script should be a journey. You don't know the destination, but you will enjoy the journey getting there. I like to explore the psychology of my characters, to give the story more depth. Also, there is now a link to my paintings... Go to bio
