EXT. KORNHILL - NIGHT

Roadside passing place. Getting out from a silver Eunos 30X 4-seater coupe, PETER walks across the road and uses his phone camera to take a photo of the car.

I only take images of

objects that I like. I

bought it in 1995 and

I still like it.

Reading a car magazine, Peter discovers something.

PETER (V.O.)

for money.

knew I was down. Do

you think if I should...

Flora looks at the photo IMAGES.

FLORA

It's entirely up to

you.

PETER

She works in Madrid...

PETER (V.O.)

I can tell that Flora

isn't supportive.Yes,

such a relationship

would be difficult to

Flora has been very

supportive of me in
