EXT. OCEAN SHORELINE - DAY
Bundled up, carrying a bottle containing a message, a twenty-year old WOMAN throws it into the ocean.
EXT. OCEAN SHORELINE. BRITAIN - DAY
Two MEN are walking along a windy, cold beach. A bottle protrudes from the sand, grabbing their attention.
Bending to pick it up, he examines it.
There's a message.
Plucking its contents, he unfolds what appears to be a letter. His friend picks up an accompanying photograph which falls to the sand.
Today is Valentine's Day in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. I believe in destiny, and so, I'm throwing caution and my heart to the wind and will wait for the man who holds this message in his hands. My name is Kathleen Donovan. I'm 20 and have enclosed a photograph. I will be waiting for you. Kathleen
BACK TO SCENE
As he studies the photograph,
(in Scottish brogue)
And probably weird or daft with five kids.
I dunno. The date reads October 14, 2001.
Which would make her...
C'mon, Jake. Toss it back.
She's waited eight years.
So, what's it to you?
INT. HOME. CAPE COD - NIGHT
KATHLEEN is listening to light music while clearing dinner dishes from the dining room table. There's a KNOCK on her door.
She straightens her loosely bound hair and shrugs off noted splashes of paint on her sweatshirt and jeans. When she opens the door, Jake stands before her in anticipation, holding a package, then smiles.
She nods, smiling, knowing instantly it was the man she had been waiting for for eight long years. Gently,
Jake doesn't say a word as he excitedly observes the freshly painted canvases.
Are they yours?
I have something which belongs to you.
Wiping away tears of elation, Kathleen watches him as he walks to the dining room table and opens the package containing the bottle. As he hands it to her,
There's a message in it.
Affectionately glancing at him, she carefully removes it.
I'm following my heart and it goes to Kathleen.
BACK TO SCENE
You see, I believe in destiny too.
As she falls into his arms,
Happy Valentine's Day, Kathleen.
FADE TO BLACK
