A full audience of moviegoers sit in the theatre.
They are all at a hush as the final preview just ended.
The movie begins.
One character appears on screen – it is a Black Woman.
Another character appears on screen – it is a Vietnamese Woman.
Another character appears on screen – it is a Cambodian Woman.
A final character appears on screen – it is an Iraqi Woman.
The scene continues with these four characters going about their lives.
They are fully rounded characters.
They are interesting characters.
The movie is quite good.
All of the moviegoers look around at each other.
They look at the screen.
They look back at each other.
They all nod their heads in agreement.
MOVIEGOER: This is odd…
The audience continues to enjoy the rest film.
END OF PLAY.
