Synopsis/Details: 

Kay, 45, is estranged from her ex-husband, Al, whom she divorced on the grounds of unreasonable behaviour. Al was in the past very verbally abusive and has done psychological damage to Kay, and her two children, Lloyd, 20-ish, and Linda, 20-ish.

Linda and Kay remember his abuse, but Lloyd seems to have forgotten, and has romantic notions of a reconciliation with Al.

Linda has to shake off the attentions of Tom, 20, who is besotted with her, but well beneath her intellectual level. Tom decides he must get smarter to impress her, so he starts reading a lot of books.

Lloyd's meeting with Al turns out to be a predictable disaster as Al abuses him verbally again.

Once Tom has become educated, he rejects Linda, and seeks another girl.

Kay tells Lloyd and Linda they must learn some life lessons to understand the meaning of maturity.

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
