Eye Of The Gull
Eye Of The Gull
Pat and Maggie run a bed and breakfast establishment - Gull House. The front of the building is decorated with a large painting of a gull with its "eye" being the attic window. Living with Pat and Maggie is Pat's sister Sara who although is 27 has the mind of a 12 year old. Pat is over protective of her sister. Maggie feels that Sara should be given more responsibilities and should not be sharing their bedroom. There are various guests at the b&b some longer term others for the weekend. Pat and Jessie are celebrating the anniversary of their first meeting at Gull House. Tally and Margo - Margo is a Broadway star and is afraid that she will be recognised and the fact that she is a lesbian will get out to the Media. Denny a school teacher who had had a long term relationship with Tally is teaching Sara to read. Margo thinks that Tally still loves Denny. Pat decides that it is time to repaint the gull - a job that falls to Maggie. Maggie makes a start but asks Sara to help. Whilst up the twenty foot ladder that is needed for the job - Sara sees the attic room. a room that has no access through the house. She also hears Pat and Maggie disagreeing on what is best for her. Pat is very angry that Sara is up the ladder and insists that she come down. Later unbeknown to the others Sara sneaks out with her 30 dollars of savings. When Pat realises that she is gone she is frantic and is convinced that Sara will come to harm. Search parties are organised - but there is no sign of her. When they are about to report her missing to the police - a light is seen in the attic window. Sara is in there - she had bought a blind for the window and is setting about putting it up. She had paid for it with her money and also got a part time job sweeping up at the general store. She announces that the attic room is now hers and that she will not give it up. Pat has to accept that Sara is starting to stand on her own two feet.
