INT. FAMILY HOME - DAY
Sunshine streams through a large bay window on a casual living space in a family's home. The room is comfortable and warm; toys are scattered across a large open play space on the floor. A two-year old GIRL sits eating a snack of yogurt at a dining table, her back to a five-year old BOY playing with Legos or similar building toy on the floor ten feet away. He is turned sideways to the girl, not looking at her. The scene is calm. Both children are happily focused on what is in front of them.
Throughout the scene the children neither look nor move toward one another.
Look at what I made! I spent a long time working on this, so don't touch it.
I have yogurt!
You're not looking. Are you looking? Don't break it. I spent a long time on this.
(not looking, her back still toward BOY)
I see it, brother. I touch it.
No! Don't touch it! I'm hitting you.
The children are still ten feet apart, where they began the scene, focused on the snack or toy in front of them while talking to one another. They do not look at each other even as their voices rise. GIRL continues eating, BOY continues playing.
I'm hitting you!
Stop hitting me! Stop hitting me, brother!
(not even miming the action)
I hit you! I hit you!
Noooooo! Mommy! Mommmmmmyyyyy!
I didn't do anything.
