EXT. SISTER THORNLY'S SCHOOL FOR WAYWARD TOTS - DAY

Various CHILDREN run around the yard of the orphanage. One eats mud while another two take turns punching each other. A BOY tugs on a GIRL's ponytails. One CHILD is painting on the wooden fence. A GIRL chases a BOY with a board while another BOY plays with a rat. A NUN, SISTER THORNLY, files her nails as she stands on the porch. She begins to count CHILDREN.

SISTER THORNLY

...twenty-nine, thirty, thirty-one, thirty-two. Where's thirty-three? I'm one shy. 

SISTER THORNLY gets angry and balls her fists.

SISTER THORNLY

Otto! Ooh...

SISTER THORNLY stomps away.

INT. SISTER THORNLY'S SCHOOL FOR WAYWARD TOTS - DAY

SISTER THORNLY stomps through the hall when a sound catches her attention. She stops and listens.

SISTER THORNLY

Hmm?

She traces the sound to a broom closet and opens the door. OTTO is inside, sitting on books and reading with a flashlight.

SISTER THORNLY

Well, well! Reading your books again, eh? Maybe some chores will help ya remember my policy on reading!

INT. FURNACE ROOM

OTTO struggles to shovel coal into the flaming furnace.

INT. GARAGE

OTTO attempts to remove a tire from a car. He lifts it for a moment before it falls backwards onto him.

INT. HALLWAY

OTTO walks past a boys' bathroom, toilet scrubber and bucket in hand. A BULLY exits the room and laughs.

BULLY

Good luck, jerk!

The BULLY smacks OTTO with a rolled up newspaper. OTTO drops his cleaning supplies, looks into the bathroom, and sighs.

EXT. SISTER THORNLY'S SCHOOL FOR WAYWARD TOTS - NIGHT

Gunshots and police sirens are heard in the distance as crickets chirp.

INT. OTTO'S ROOM- NIGHT

OTTO exhaustedly trudges to his bed and falls face down onto his pillow.
