Synopsis/Details: 

David, who is seriously depressed by memories of his past, with considerable regret, sees a woman on a train.
He follows her and introduces himself to Abigail, who takes him home.

Abigail takes the precaution of showing him her pistol, to make sure he is not a danger to her. They form
a friendship and then, a relationship.

David tells this story to some people in a coffee shop, but a metaphysical dimension enters when it becomes
clear that the coffee shop is really an anteroom to death.

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
