The Wish Writer - A Christmas Tale

THE WISH WRITER

By Leo Finelli

Inspired by a Macy’s Commercial

OPENING TITLES

Close in on Hannah’s dollhouse.

INT. DOLLHOUSE

Hannah’s favorite doll, portrayed in live-action, addresses the audience.

DOLL Well, hi there. (laughs) I’m a doll without a name. Hannah got me for Christmas when she was four and never named me. Now she’s much older and still holds me close. (laughs again) The Christmas Hannah got me is one she’ll never forget, but there was another Christmas, when she got another gift she’ll never forget, thanks to some very special magic…

We cut to Hannah and her brother Luke coming down the stairs.

We then see their mother waiting at the bottom of the stairs.

MOM Come on, Hannah, Luke, we’re going to get our Christmas tree and then to the department store.

HANNAH OK, Mom.

LUKE
So that’s where we’re going.

Enter Hannah and Luke’s father. He appears by their mother.

DAD All ready to go, kids?

HANNAH and LUKE
Yes! CHRISTMAS TREE LOT
