A Normal Life (Short Film Screenplay)


A young girl lives in an old apartment with a strange roommate in the city. One morning, she needs to leave her apartment for an interview. But for some reason, she found herself unable to get out of it. Meanwhile, many people began to express inappropriate interest in her apartment, and her privacy. The head of the residential committee incessantly tries to force her to vote; a male neighbor wants to come into her apartment to return her underwear; a middle-aged lady with a chainsaw wants to saw off an ox leg in her apartment…All these bizarre actions make her deeply disturbed and struggled to calm down until a special “gift” is delivered to her. After opening her gift, she now decides to turn her apartment into a hell.
