               EXT. PALM DESERT HOUSE - DAY

               TOM, early 30's, fit, exits the house from a sliding glass
               door to the backyard swimming pool. He wears swimming trunks
               and a T-shirt that reads "ABOUT TO BE TOSSED".

               He removes shirt and walks on to the diving board.

               He dives in.

               I/E. POOL - CONTINUOUS

               UNDERWATER SHOT.

               Tom swims down, down, down.

               He keeps swimming downwards; the pool is impossibly deep and
               he never reaches bottom.

               He suddenly stops; looks concerned.

               He looks up.

               SHOT OF WATER'S SURFACE, VERY FAR AWAY.

               The last bubbles of breath escape his mouth.
