EXT./INT. GARAGE - DAY 1 - PRESENT DAY

Late afternoon. A car approaches a garage. The front lights enlighten the old white a bit rusty freezer in the back of the garage. Two women get out of the car. MARY - exhausted in her fifties, slim and always quietly smiling locks the car and walks out of the garage. JENNY (23), her daughter, energetic, a bit chubby, follows MARY out of the garage towards the white, flaked away, two floor family house. JENNY has hands full of shopping bags. The garage door close by themselves.

MARY
