My name is lily 4

  1. 1. INT. BATHROOM. NIGHT. Shown in an extreme close up, there are various pink things knocked over in LILY's bathroom. In an in-and-out of focus shot, the masculine LILY's chipped pink nail polish can be seen. Her high heels, kicked over by the side of the tub, can be seen. In a close up shot, there is a doll on her bed. In a medium shot, LILY is seen in the bathtub, wearing a torn dress. Her chest is flat, and her hair is short. Her makeup is smudged across her face as though she's been crying, and her eyes are closed. She is still, and the only sound is the tap occasionally dripping. In a close up shot, there are four dead white roses in a water glass. EXT. STREET. DAY. The masculine LILY walks down a residential street, wearing a boy's school uniform. She is wearing very bright pink headphones, and the audience can hear "Here Comes the Sun" (cover). Her phone buzzes, pausing the sun. She pulls out a blue phone with a pink case. There is a text from "mom", reading 'coming home late tonight, working late tonight :( sorry Charlie.' She smiles and giggles a little, turning up the volume on her phone. Titles appear as she walks home. LILY unlocks the door with her key. LILY Mom? Dad? There is no answer, and she smiles again. She rushes upstairs. INT. BEDROOM/BATHROOM. DAY. There is a close up shot of an abandoned boy's school uniform in a pile in LILY's bedroom. The camera pans to look at a variety of awards on her walls in the name of CHARLIE ROSS and pictures of the masculine LILY with short hair. LILY grabs a locked box from under her bed and brings it with her to the bathroom. The lock to the bathroom clicks, and she starts running a bath. As it fills, LILY opens the box. Inside, there is a white purse, some nail polish, a blonde wig and a few other assorted feminine things. The masculine LILY pulls out the bright pink nail polish and paints her nails, blowing on it as it dries. The roses are still alive in this brief close up shot. In a close up shot, she steps in to the bath and rinses out her blonde hair. It is about the length of an overgrown pixie cut. The song fades, until LILY is left humming on her own. LILY Here comes the sun, And I say it's all right... In a medium shot, she wraps a towel around herself. It is clear from this shot that she is flat- chested. She runs a hand over her chest and her hands tremble slightly. When she looks in the mirror, she looks more like a man than a woman. When she shakes her head, her features are the same, but on a cisgendered woman. This more feminine version of LILY is shorter and thinner,
  2. 2. with a more angled face and longer hair. She runs a still hand over her chest, where the towel swells in the shape of her breasts. She takes a can of Venus shaving cream and puts it on her face, where a man would shave. She picks up a pink women's razor to her face, getting rid of some very short stubble. She brushes her hair and puts it in to a matching towel, then walks across to her bedroom. There is a close up shot of her running her hands over the various fabrics of her closet. Most of them are men's clothing, but two or three are clearly women's. Her hand lands on a pink dress. She pulls it out of the closet and rests it on her bed. LILY sits down in front of a mirror and, looking around like she's afraid someone might see, she pulls a small bag of makeup from a her backpack. In this shot, there are a few textbooks visible, making it clear to the audience that she is a student. She brushes her hair hurriedly, drying it with the towel. She puts on makeup like someone who's only done it once or twice, nervous around her eyes. She slips the dress on. We finally see all of her in a medium shot, from within the mirror and she smiles at herself, twirling and giggling quietly. She reaches for the blonde wig, A door opens and closes somewhere downstairs and she startles, grabbing the feminine things from the bathroom and stuffing them in the box from before and shoving it back under her bed. She starts panicking, grabbing at a man's shirt before clearly changing her mind and putting it back in a drawer. She looks at herself in the mirror and fixes a small smudge below her eyelid. MIRANDA walks down a hallway, then up the stairs. She is a woman of average height, short blonde hair and pastel coloured clothing. MIRANDA Charlie? Where are you? Nervously, the feminine LILY puts on a pair of silver high heels. She takes a calming breath and opens the door. The feminine LILY) is not awkward on her feet, giving the audience the idea that she has walked in them before. Outside her door, MIRANDA is facing with her back to LILY. LILY takes a deep breath and smooths down her dress anxiously. LILY Mom? MIRANDA turns around and when she sees LILY, gasps quietly and puts her hand over her mouth. From MIRANDA's perspective, it is the more masculine LILY, the one who looks like a man in a dress and makeup rather than a woman in a dress and makeup. INT. BEDROOM. NIGHT.
  3. 3. The feminine LILY is sitting on her bed. She chips at her nail polish anxiously, tapping her feet nervously. She starts crying quietly, sniffling a little. She wipes at her eyes, smudging her eyeliner as she does. She lies down against her pillows and sighs, closing her eyes and thinks back to an hour ago. int. kitchen. day. MIRANDA What did we do wrong, Charlie? What's wrong with you? How do we fix this? LILY (mumbling) My name is Lily. And you didn't do anything wrong, mom, it's just..me. In a close up shot, a car's tires come to a gentle stop on a driveway. A car door opens and shuts and the sound of a car alarm locking is heard. MIRANDA (shouting) This is not my sweet boy! LILY (shouting) Neither am I! MIRANDA I can't handle this, Charlie, you're not my son, you're not - LILY I AM NOT CHARLIE! MIRANDA YES YOU ARE! There is a close up shot of BILL opening the front door with a key, the many keychains jingling.
  4. 4. LILY My NAME is Lily. Lily. LILY. BILL stands at the door of the kitchen and when LILY turns around, he drops his keys, seeing the more masculine LILY. BILL What is this Charlie? What are you, a tranny? LILY starts crying and storms back upstairs. INT. BEDROOM. NIGHT. From her room, LILY can hear BILL and MIRANDA arguing. BILL Where do we take him, Miranda? There has to be a doctor, to fix him, someone - MIRANDA Someone to help our son - BILL He can't stay like this forever - MIRANDA Wrong - BILL Freakish - MIRANDA Abomination, it isn't right... LILY screams and covers her ears, crying hard. The masculine and feminine LILY blur in to one another as she wipes at her makeup, scratching her nails and ripping her dress angrily. She kicks off her shoes and she looks as though she's trying to tear off every piece of herself, anything that defines either her male or female personality.
  5. 5. The feminine LILY smashes the picture of herself holding a diploma, and the masculine one tears down an award with the name "Charlie Ross" printed in bold. The masculine LILY clips her nails down to stubs, the clipping sound harsh. The sounds of arguing downstairs rise and, distracted, she accidentally clips her nail too short and winces. The feminine LILY is seen sucking on her injured finger, her eyes shut tightly. In a medium shot, both the more masculine and feminine LILY are back to back curled up on the bed, mirror images of each other. They sob quietly, unaware of each other and unable to take comfort in the other. The audience can see a quick succession of shots of LILY as a little boy, playing with a doll in an empty room, the same one on her bed. There is a shot of her crying as MIRANDA cuts her hair, then to the pink things from the opening scene. The masculine LILY pulls on her short hair, looking angry, and then all in a rush, the feminine LILY stands up and goes to her closet, pulling out the large white handbag seen earlier in her box of feminine things and filling it. In it, she puts a variety of girl things, including the makeup case from earlier. From downstairs, she can still hear MIRANDA and BILL arguing. As they get louder and start shouting, she puts clothing in the bag, then her wallet, her phone and a charger. She goes to the bathroom and grabs a perfume bottle and the feminine LILY catches a glance at herself in the mirror, a brief thing, like she hadn't really meant to look. She puts her shoes back on and stops, looking at the doll on her bed. The masculine LILY's eyes water at the sight of it and she picks it up and holds it, observing it quietly. She hears MIRANDA yelling downstairs, and makes a decision. She goes to the desk and quickly writes out a note. She folds it and writes "mom and dad" on the back of it. Footsteps can be heard going up the stairs and the feminine LILY looks around her room, then she walks towards her bedroom window. MIRANDA Charlie, we need to talk to you, we've found this wonderful doct - Charlie? The room is empty, and the window is open. Her curtain is billowing with the wind. On her bed, the note she left for her parents is by the bear. MIRANDA goes towards it and opens it. EXT. NIGHT. TRAIN STATION. The feminine LILY runs towards a train station, her high heels clicking. It is pouring rain and she shivers. She is still wearing the torn dress. She runs down the stairs towards the platform. She pauses at the edge of the tracks and starts crying again, folding in on herself. She runs her hands through her hair, looking hurt and lost. The train pulls in on an empty platform, surprising her. She pauses and takes a deep breath before stepping on to the train. Sitting on the train, she observes her nails, only to see that they are impeccably groomed and that she is dry. She pulls a mirror out of her bag and her makeup is not smudged, her hair is curled
  6. 6. gently. She looks at herself and sees the cups of the dress filled more naturally. She startles and looks up. In the aisle across her, MIRANDA and BILL are sitting. MIRANDA Wrong BILL Freakish MIRANDA Abomination LILY covers her ears, looking afraid. LILY I am not WRONG! INT. NIGHT. BATHROOM. Shown in an extreme close up, there are various pink things knocked over in LILY's bathroom. In an in-and-out of focus shot, a more masculine LILY's chipped pink nail polish can be seen. Her high heels, kicked over by the side of the tub, can be seen. In a close up shot, there is a doll on her bed. In a medium shot, LILY is seen in the bathtub, wearing a torn dress. Her chest is flat, and her hair is short. Her makeup is smudged across her face as though she's been crying, and her eyes are closed. She is still, and the only sound is the tap occasionally dripping. In a close up shot, there are four dead white roses in a water glass. She opens her eyes and sits up, then looks at nails. They are still chipped, like she's been picking at them. There is a bit of blood at the bed of one. She takes a deep breath, sniffles once or twice and smooths back her hair. She steps out of the tub, the ruined dress pooling at her feet. She dries herself off and looks in the mirror and with a small, sad smile, the masculine LILY starts reapplying her makeup. EXT. NIGHT. TRAIN STATION. The masculine LILY walks calmly towards a train station, her high heels clicking. Instead of her short blond hair, she is wearing a blond wig that falls a few inches past her shoulders. She is wearing a different dress, a better fitting one with an unbuttoned pink rain coat on top. She is wearing some kind of padding that fills where her breasts should be. It is a clear, dark night and she walks slowly down the stairs towards the platform. She pauses at the edge of the tracks and looks upwards towards the stars, smiling peacefully. The train pulls in the on an empty platform, she pauses and takes a deep breath before stepping on to the train.
  7. 7. BILL leaves LILY's room, slamming the door behind him. The wall trembles with the force of it. MIRANDA is kneeling on the floor, crying. Because she is so close to the bed, she could almost be praying. Her hands are clasped around LILY's doll and the note is discarded on the floor. It reads "My name is Lily" in a rushed, cursive hand. MIRANDA (whispering) I'm sorry, Lily. On the train, both the masculine and feminine LILY sit across from each other. The masculine and feminine LILY are wearing the exact same dress, just in different sizes. There is a brief close up shot of the masculine LILY's nails chipped and the feminine one frowns, pulling a bottle of pink nail polish from her bag, sitting evenly between the two of them. She pulls at the masculine LILY's hands and fixes the smudges. The masculine one smiles at the feminine one. But when she looks up, the feminine LILY is gone, and she's holding the nail polish in her right hand.
