Blind Spot

A blind man enters a café…

 … and BAM! He bumps into a ruffian, who seems to be enjoying himself by troubling other people, taking sips of their coffee, knocking their tables over…

 Our ruffian has a little fun with the blind man.

SMACK! Off goes his walking stick.

SWISH SWOOSH! He takes off his dark glasses and puts them back on.

Blind Man (catches the ruffian by the collar): ENOUGH!

 

The whole café goes silent…

The ruffian holds back his cronies.

The blind man leaves his collar, searches for his stick, orders a cappuccino and sits down, thinking of the PAST…

 

Flashback: 1 year ago

A handsome young man (the blind man in his past) is driving a car. Sitting alongside him is his beautiful wife.

From the opposite side of the one-way street, a truck comes in full force. The truck has a drunk driver.

BLAM! The driver smashes the car head on. Bodies of both the man and his wife are flung in opposite directions.

The truck driver drives on, without remorse… while two crumpled bodies lie on the street behind him.

 

Back to the present

 

A crippled lady enters the café…

The blind man’s wife.

She sits at the blind man’s table and holds his hand.

The blind man squeezes her hand.

FOR SOME REASON, SHE HEAVES A SIGH OF RELIEF…

 

BANG! Policemen barge into the café…                          

They take a look at the ruffian.

Obviously, he’s a guy who has a history with the cops. They suddenly start searching him.

They find a GUN in his pocket.

The wife takes a long, hard look at the ruffian and smiles.

Policemen handcuff the ruffian and take him away. He looks shocked.

 

Immediate flashback: When the blind man caught the ruffian by the collar, he also dropped a gun in his pocket.

 

Flashback: 1 hour ago    

The crippled lady enters a building. She knocks on the door of a certain ‘Robert Gonsalves’.

When the door opens, we see that it’s the truck driver who was involved in the hit and run with the husband and wife.

She takes out a gun (it has a silencer) and shoots him in the head. Twice.

Calmly, she CALLS THE COPS, REPORTS THE MURDER.

Then, she closes the door, goes down and gives the gun to her blind husband, WHO THEN ENTERS THE CAFÉ…

THE POLICE ENTER ROBERT GONSALVES’ BUILDING ABOUT 20 MINUTES LATER.

 

Back to the present

The blind man and wife hold hands as they sip on their coffees.
