Preface: The year is 2040. In the United States of America, the country of freedom and liberty, April and Roger are a young married couple. April is pregnant and plans for an abortion. Roger, who is filled with ambition, meets Jerome, who shares similar and relatable experiences as a male. Like all the men in the society, Roger is submissive and domestic in his relationship. The gender roles have switched. This story is a satirical way to look at societal gender roles. This scene asks a meaningful question: who has the real power in society?
INT – A sterile bright hospital room – day
Background keyboard clicking. Telephone ringing. Rolling of stretchers. A blur of people passing by outside the room. Two people stand in the room, away from the chaos. APRIL, a young woman in her early twenties, appears hesitant. Her hands, shaking, rest on her apparent pregnant bump. ROGER, a young man around the same age, dressed in a clean white suit that’s slightly wrinkled, looks down on the cold white tiles nervously. They are waiting.
A doctor appears. Female. Middle-aged.
APRIL immediately rushes to the doctor.
