Scene’s opening goal: To get Mychaella to safety after the hit man’s attempt at the hotel. Jimmy takes her to a friend’s apartment.(she’s a pole dancer on tour) and because her dress was ripped in the confrontation she is now wearing the strippers clothes.
Conflict: They were followed and while she’s in the bedroom changing she hears the scuffle and shots being fired so she goes out the fire escape. presumably Jimmy is killed since he does not follow her out.
Disaster: Now she’s on an unfamiliar street dressed like a hooker. The working girls are giving her grief, their customers giving her too much attention and the average person wont talk to her.
How does it make it worse: Now she is on her own, dressed like a hooker, no purse so no money, no ID and no phone. She then gets picked up in a police sweep and has to use her one phone call(since she doesn’t know where the her husband is) to call the one person she would rather not see–the hero.
