1/ Through a window, a man and a woman are being intimate on a bare mattress in an otherwise unfurnished apartment. Still-packed cardboard boxes are strewn haphazardly across the room.
Him: Welcome home.
Her: Yeah, ...
2/ A floor below, there is a party in full swing. Some people dance alone or together. Some argue. Some also share moments of intimacy, though without the immediate privacy currently afforded the couple upstairs.
3/ Below the revelry, another quiet apartment. The decorations are modern. Stark patterns, oddly-shaped knick-knacks punctuated with thick volumes of who knows what, and a pair of chairs that look uncomfortable to sit in for very long. An older woman cradles a cup of tea as she gazes out the window. Behind her, down a hallway, is a man with slumped shoulders carrying a knife.
Him: Honey? Your food is getting cold.
Her: What does it matter?
