Finishing Touches on my Screenplay

I’ve been working on a short silent screenplay for a Northwest Film Forum challenge. In many ways, shorter is harder. You’ve got to show a complete story arc in only 5 minutes. At least, that’s what I’m attempting to do. You could also show a snapshot of a story, but I’m more of a completest.
