The woman looks at the window and insist.

The man is thinking about it with a worried face and tell again that he cannot.

Zoom in at the woman disappointed face that moves from the telescope and looks at the radar.

A man is looking through a telescope and lifts his head, pauses and then rests this top lip on the telescopes viewfinder. A few seconds pass, he lifts his head again looks away and then stands up straight and walks away turning his back to the telescope.

The camera shows a close up his face for a couple of seconds before switching to show him from the back looking at the spaceship door. Putting his arms out he leans forwards and rests his head on the door.

The man is sat on a bed holding plate eating. He drops the spoon he is eating with on his plate and then puts the plate down on the bed beside him. Leaning forwards he rests his elbow on his thigh, covers his mouth with his hand before turning his head and noticing an old unfinished noughts and crosses game.

The camera shows a close up side profile of his face, his eyes are closes and he has his fingers pressed against his forehead.

There is a beep and he looks up in shock and confusion. There is another beep, he stands and walks back over to the telescope, pauses and then looks into the viewfinder. Through the viewfinder he sees nothing, lifts his head and gives out a sigh. He looks to the side and up, he notices the daffodil by the spaceship door are wilting.

He picks a daffodil up, looks at it and rests it upon his bottom lip for a couple of seconds. He looks out of the corner of his eyes then the screen goes blank.

Lights being to flicker, the sign ‘AIRLOCK ACTIVE’ is illuminated and from the back we can see the man stood in a spacesuit in front of the spaceship door. He turns around looks around the room, puts a space helmet on his head and plugs in the air supply.

He looks down at his hand, he is holding the same daffodil he picked earlier, it is packed in an cylinder canister. He takes a deep breath and the closes the cylinder canister making it airtight and no longer visible.

He turns back around and presses a button under the ‘AIRLOCK ACTIVE’ sign. The room darkens and slowly begins to flash red and mechanical noises can be heard indicating machinery is moving.

The camera shows a close up of his eyes. The flickering of the lights make him scrunch his eyes closed. The scene changes, the flickering stops but this eyes are still tightly closed and his face is slightly shaking. He opens his eyes and the camera zooms out to show he is slowly floating through space with the Earth in the background.

He opens his hand and notices the cylinder canister with the daffodil is gone. The camera shot changes and the cylinder canister can be seen floating through space by his side.


A hand comes into shot and grabs the cylinder canister, the shot changes and it is a women in an astronaut suit who has grabbed the canister. She looks at it and then looks at the male astronaut. He begins to smile at her and she smiles back.

Camera pans out and both astronauts can be seen slowly gliding towards each other in space arms stretched out wide against Earth in the background.

The scene fades out to a blank black screen.
