EXT. CHARLES RIVER - NIGHT

A curious black and white object floats downstream past darkened mansions, closed yacht clubs, deserted bridges, lifeless baseball diamonds...

TITLE: MARCH 18, 1990

INT. TWO STORY VICTORIAN - BEDROOM - NIGHT

A MYSTERIOUS FIGURE donning a policeman's cap carefully slides a Carl Yastrzemski baseball card under the tiny fingers of a peacefully sleeping child, MATT.

MAN

Love you, Mattie.

He gently kisses Matt's forehead, then whispers into his ear.

MAN (CONT'D)

Wish me luck.

The man backs up cautiously, careful not to wake the cherub.

EXT. BOSTON - CHARLES RIVER FRONT - NIGHT

A COW emerges from the river, dripping wet and confused. It shakes off water and takes in its odd new urban surroundings.

COW

Moo.

EXT. TUFTS UNIVERSITY FINE ARTS MUSEUM - NIGHT

The cow moseys past HIP ART STUDENTS taking selfies.

EXT. FENWAY PARK DRIVE - NIGHT

The cow meanders by plastered RED SOX FANS trying to prop each other up and YOUNG LOVERS exchanging tongues on a nearby bench. No one notices the farm animal.

EXT. ISABELLA STEWART GARDNER MUSEUM - DRIVEWAY - NIGHT

The cow stops and stares straight ahead. Something has caught its bovine interest - another black and white: a cop car parked outside the service entrance.
