UNCOVERED – ROMANTIC DRAMA SCRIPT
A man and woman have been living together in a small Chicago apartment. She has been working to pay the bills while he works on a novel, but he’s developed writer’s block, and it’s been eating away at his confidence, and lessening her attraction to him. The rift has gotten to the point where she’s been spending most of her time at a friend’s place.
He goes to see her at work and watches her in a different light as she floats around her restaurant interacting with the customers. Then they go out for drinks, and their passion is rekindling.
We hear them as they ascend the stairs to their apartment, bumping against the walls as they release from each other’s embrace long enough to unlock the door.
Inside we watch as they work out their relationship, one that began with a mutual love of books, one helped to be put back together – and almost taken further apart – by the books in their life.
