INT. A HOUSE – NIGHT
The window on the door smashes quietly as a gloved hand comes through it and proceeds to open the door. Two men in balaclavas enter, one of them holding a large bag. They proceed to the living room, where one of them starts taking the DVD player, the other approaches the computer. Next to the computer is a hard drive.
He turns the computer on.
“What are you doing!?”
“He’s got an external hard drive.”
Burglar two clicks ‘back up computer’ on the screen. Burglar one continues to take silver, gadgets and blu rays.
Both men are sitting in front of the computer, watching it back up. BURGLAR ONE is agitated.
Come on! Come on! What are you doing!?
We’re nearly there… There, okay.
He ejects the hard drive and puts the computer in the bag, leaving the hard drive. Just before he leaves, he writes a note before they both exit.
INT. HOUSE – DAY
The WOMAN is in her dressing gown, talking to a POLICEMAN.
They had everything, I mean… The Telly, the dvd player, my phone, our films, the computer…
Look at this.
He hands them the note.
The note reads:
“We backed up your computer for you before we took it, so you’ve still got all your stuff. Hopefully we didn’t make too much of a mess.
