TRACKING SHOT – BERTHA AND ROLAND’S BACK

CUT TO:

CLOSE-UP – BERTHA’S HAND

Bertha puts her right hand on her left chest.

CUT TO:

MEDIUM SHOT – IN FRONT OF BERTHA AND ROLAND

Bertha, with her right hand on her left chest, looks worried. Roland looks surprised.

ROLAND

What’s wrong, Bertha?

BERTHA

I have this feeling suddenly hits me now and then. This feeling like my heart starts bleeding again.

ROLAND

But that accident happened several months ago. You should have been fully recovered.

BERTHA

I wish the wound was completely close up too, but this feeling…

Bertha looks down to her chest as if to check if there is a stain of blood anywhere but there is nothing.

BERTHA

Should be alright. Should be alright.

DOLLY SHOT – IN FRONT OF BERTHA AND ROLAND

Bertha starts walking again and puts her right hand back to her side. Roland hesitates for a few seconds before starts following her.
