Brotherly Love Script Concept

  1. 1. "Brotherly Love" By Jacob Hodgson 10-25-2010 - Draft 2 Jacob Hodgson info@jacobhodgson.com 713-249-8793
  2. 2. INT. SCHOOL DAY 1 A young African-American boy walks down the halls of his school with his head held low. He clutches his books in his hands and holds them close to this chest. He walks through a crowd of other kids who pick on him. BULLIES Hey, NICK! Where are you going? Nerd! Maybe you need to find a different school to go to, your not welcome here. Nick continues to walk by, ignoring what the other white, jock, bullies are saying to him. One kids tries to trip Nick. His books fall out of his hand and onto the floor. NICK What’d you do that for? BULLIES Because your a Geek, Geek! Nick bends down to pick up his books as one of the other boys kicks one of his books down the hall. Nick chases it. Nick, still gathering his books, looks up as he’s greeted by JOHN. JOHN Hey Nerd, don’t forget this one. John holds one of Nicks books over his head as he’s picking the others up. He drops it and it hit’s Nick in the head, cutting his eye. NICK auhh! What did you do that for? I’m telling. Nick runs off embarrassed and on the brink of crying. EXT. SIDEWALK DAY 2 NICK walks home with his books in hand and a cut over his eye. He mutters words of anger as he walks home in shame.
  3. 3. 2. EXT. NICKS HOUSE DAY 3 He walks up to his house and is greeted by his older brother, JEROME. His brother is standing on the porch with a beer. He’s wearing a wife beater and dickies. He has 2 tear drops tattooed below his eye. He raps his arm around NICK. JEROME Hey lil bro, you just getting back from school? NICK (ashamed) Yea. Nick nods his head yes, holding his head down and is somewhat embarrassed. Jerome glances over and catches a glimpse of the gash over Nicks eye. JEROME Who did this to you? NICK Some jocks at school where picking on me, and one hit me in the head with a book and it cut me. Jerome and Nick walk into the house together and drop off his books. Jerome tells their mother that he and Nick are going to be leaving and that they will be back soon. MOTHER Ok, be careful, and don’t get into any trouble. Jerome and Nicks mother gazes at the two as if to suspect something. She sees Nicks eye. MOTHER (cont’d) Nick, what happened to your eye? Not them damn boys at school again. Am I gonna have to go down there to that school again? JEROME Don’t worry ma’, he’ll be fine. I’m going to take care of it. Jerome and Nick walk out the front door and close the door behind them.
  4. 4. 3. INT. CAR DAY 4 JEROME and NICK leave their house in Jeromes car. It has rims and dark tint. JEROME Look lil bro, you can’t be letting these punks push you around. You need to learn to stick up for yourself. Nick looks over at his brother, still with this head down in shame. NICK I know, but... JEROME But nothing. If you let them do this now, just think what it’s going to be like when you get to high school. Jerome removes his pistol from under his shirt and reaches over Nick. He opens the glove box and slides the gun in and closes it. NICK Were did you get that? JEROME Don’t worry about that lil bro, I’m going to take care of you. Jerome and Nick pull into the mall parking lot and park the car. They both exit and walk into the mall. JEROME (cont’d) See brotha, if you want to be like me one day, you have to start acting like it. You saw my toy, now it’s time to get you one of your own. INT. MALL DAY 5 NICK Really. Your going to get me one. You going to teach me how to shoot? (CONTINUED)
  5. 5. CONTINUED: 4. JEROME Yea, but you can’t tell mom, she’s already told me not to buy you any guns, but she ain’t going to know about this, right? NICK yea, I can keep a secret. I’ve always wanted my own. NICK and JEROME walk into an Airsoft toy store. INT. TOY STORE DAY 6 JEROME These airsoft guns are suppose to be pretty tight. NICK picks out a gun that he likes and hands it to his brother. It’s a 9mm replica that shoots plastic pellets. NICK This one, this is the one that I want. JEROME You sure, Ok. JEROME takes the gun and brings it to the counter. The clerk rings him up and Jerome takes a wad of cash out of his pocket and pays for it. He hands the bag to Nick and they leave the store. EXT MALL DAY 7 NICK and JEROME exit the mall and walk through the parking lot to their car. JEROME Now I have to show you how to use that thing. Listen, guns can be dangerous even if it is a toy, so don’t be pointing it at anyone. I dont’ care if you shoot stuff, but just don’t get in trouble. NICK I know, I won’t, I promise. (CONTINUED)
  6. 6. CONTINUED: 5. Jerome drives to a large field down the street from their house and they both get out and sit on the hood of the car. Nick opens the package of his new toy and fumbles with the bullets. JEROME Here, hand that thing to me and I’ll get it loaded for you. Watch me and then you will know how to do it. Jerome takes the gun from Nick, opens the plastic pellets from their pack and continues to load the gun with ammo. NICK So.. they go in there? JEROME Yea, you load it here, pull this back, and your ready to fire! Jerome hands the gun back to Nick. JEROME (cont’d) Here, now aim at something and pull the trigger! Nick grips the gun with two hands and points the gun up in the sky. JEROME (cont’d) Wait, Wait.. Look you need a target. Let me set something up for you. Jerome grabs an old can and sets it up in the distance for Nick to aim at. JEROME (cont’d) There, now aim at that can and shoot. Nick takes aim at the can and pulls the trigger. He misses. He takes aim again and misses a second time. NICK I guess it’s not as easy as I thought it was. Nick looks over at his brother for help. Jerome takes the gun from him and shoots off a few rounds. (CONTINUED)
  7. 7. CONTINUED: 6. JEROME It takes practice, but you’ll get it. Now load up and let’s head back to the house. You can come out here later after school. Make sure you have your home work done first though. And don’t let mom find this gun or else I’ll kick your butt. Nick and Jerome get in the car and drive back to their house. INT. HOUSE NIGHT 8 NICK is laying in bed. He slides his new gun out from underneath his bed and gazes at it before he goes to sleep. He slips it back under the bed and goes to sleep. EXT FEILD DAY 9 NICK is outside in the large field again and he’s alone this time. He has brought this gun in his backpack. He sets his bike down and take his gun out. He loads it and takes aim at some birds in the trees. He fires. Some neighbors see Nick with his gun. They call the POLICE. The Police arrive at the field shortly after. POLICE Boy! Put your gun down and step back. We need to talk to you. Nick doesn’t hear them the first time, he’s still busy shooting things in the field and doesn’t see the Police. POLICE (cont’d) Boy! I said! Put the gun down and step back here so we can talk to you. Nick finally notices the police and quickly drops the gun. He walks back to the cops and gazes inicently up at them. NICK Sorry, I didn’t hear you. I was.. uh.. POLICE Don’t worry, your not in trouble, we just got a call about someone with a gun and we had to come check (MORE) (CONTINUED)
  8. 8. CONTINUED: 7. POLICE (cont’d) it out. Now, don’t be shooting these peoples houses or anything. Don’t be killing anything either. You be safe now, and get home it’s getting dark. NICK Ok.. Nick slides his gun into his backpack and jumps on his bike and heads home. He pulls up to his house on his bike and notices something strange. The front door is open. INT. LIVING ROOM NIGHT 10 NICK walks in throught the open front door and sees his mother on the floor. She’s unconcious. NICK Mom, are you ok? Mom... Nick runs and hides in his room. He pulls his gun out of his backpack. He holds it with two hands, shaking. He hears noises coming fromt the kitchen, it’s two people talking. They are robbing the house. Nick walks out of the room with the gun in his hands, pointed directly at the two white men. ROBBER Boy, you better hope that gun is real. Go ahead, SHOOT! The two men laugh and continue what they were doing. Nick pulls the trigger on his gun and shoots off about 3 shots. They bounce right off the mans leg. The man pulls his gun out, fires at Nick, striking him in the chest. He’s FALLS. Laying on the floor next to his mother. The robbers flee.
