July Garden/Dream Scene

Ext. Geraldine's Garden - Day

Little Rosita's head lolls back, still on the nipple but drooling milk. Reclining in Esperanza's arms. Esperanza's hands are black from the soil. She strokes Rosi's head, then looks into camera. She wears a tight-fitting white shirt, a skinny black tie and a billowing, blood-red flamenco skirt. She reclines in Zen's arms. The three of them are on a Moroccan rug, in the middle of Geraldine's Garden.

Behind them is a solid wall of vegetation; broccoli sprouting, eggplant, tomatoes, sunflowers erupting, BEES and butterflies flitting and BUZZING about.

Slowly, the life of the fammunity comes into focus all around them. Huge quantities of food are being harvested and carried inside. Dancers stretch and practice a lift. An infant is danced with. A sister SOLOS on a CONGA.

A graceful, elderly woman with waist-long, white hair sets down a basket of ripe tomatoes, kisses Esperanza and exits. The sound of muffled SOBBING breaks the revere.
