You don't get to see the full picture. When you see someone in silhouette, you only see the outline in black of an entire person, that's what this conversation is. These two characters are skirting around the outline of an actual, tangible, idea in place of actually saying what they feel.
My first narrative film, now titled "In Silhouette", is out! Thanks so much to Sarah Elliott for writing this beautiful piece, and to Zach and Stephanie for being such amazing actors their first time around. Share it with you friends, share it with your family, share it with that guy at Subway who always messes up your sandwich no matter how many times you tell him "No Mayo!" (he deserves to see it too). Enjoy!
