EXT. FORREST HILLS HIGH SCHOOL - DAYLUCY KARATE, 17 years old, carries her bass drum across a busyhigh school parking lot to a practice field. POV perspectiveshows what it's like to be behind second bass. Anappropriately alternative pop song (Paramore, All Time Low)plays in her (our) headphones.She (camera) looks to the right, then up, just in time to seea football sail directly towards and crash into her drum.CUT TO:Credit sequence. Band camp is condensed into a montage. In ayearbook / still photo style (The Break Up / Sahara / Can'tHardly Wait) clips show the entire marching band working hard,but playing hard as well. We're introduced to Lucy's innercircle of friends and it's obvious she's a well liked normalmember of the senior class at Forrest Hills HS. From thesoundtrack, the audience should understand the halftime showis Big Band music (Glen Miller, Benny Goodman, etc.).FLASH TO:EXT. FORREST HILLS HIGH SCHOOL - DAYA shocked Lucy sets calmly her drum on the ground and looks atit, inspecting the damage. She's dressed for physicalactivity, hair up, not overly styled, eyes hidden behind darksunglasses. If someone who is 5'3" can look intimidating,it's her.LUCYWhat the f---?Lucy's expletive is cut off by an off screen cymbal crash. Incensed by the gaping hole in her drum, she picks up thefootball and interrupts the team by walking into the middle oftheir practice. LUCYWho put a hole in my drum head?The jocks, who easily weigh double our protagonist, shiftuncomfortably, until the crowd parts and reveals WESMALLINSON, a Beckham lookalike from the same country.WES(unexpectedly, his accentis a charming British one)I'm terribly sorry.LUCY1.
 
I'm sure you are. WESIf I could just help you--LUCYThanks, but you've done more thanenough already.Lucy chucks the ball, expertly directing it at Wes's crotch,and walks back towards her drum, amidst catcalls,inappropriate comments, and whistles from the jocks.WESWho was that?SEANI don't know, some band geek. They're all the same.Wes's eyes follow Lucy as she walks away.EXT. FORREST HILLS HIGH SCHOOL - PRACTICE FIELD (SAME DAY)Lucy's best friends, MANDY and GINA, walk with her backtowards the school after marching band practice.MANDYSo, why were you late today, Luce?Not setting a very good example forthe freshman, are we?LUCYI would have been there, had it notbeen for some lame-ass jock whodecided my bass drum made goodtarget practice.GINAWhat did he look like?LUCY(shrugs)I don't know. Kind of tall, he wasthe kicker, I think.GINAThe
