The dining room was lit with bright candles. However, the atmosphere doesn’t seem good. It looked like something terrible had happened.

ALFRED: (on phone) Thank you! Thank you, Mr Arthur.
CAROLINE: What do they say?
ALFRED: (sighs) All plane lines are busy. So, we can’t be helped right at this moment.
LAUREL: (wails) Daddy! I want to leave this place.
(Loud banging on the door. ALFRED rushes to open it)
CAROLINE: (getting up from her chair) Harold! Where have you been?
Thomas: We thought that you must’ve been dead.
Harold: It is a bit typical.
ALFRED: What are you talking about?
Harold: The Führer has invaded Poland.
Caroline: That can’t be.
Alfred: What would happen now?
Harold: No body knows a thing.
Laurel rushes upstairs and packs all her belongings. Thomas follows.
Thomas: What are you up to?
Laurel: I am packing.
Thomas: For what?
Laurel: If Führer has invaded Poland. We could be the next.
(ALFRED enters the room)
ALFRED: Your sister is right. Go and pack your belongings as well.
(Thomas leaves)
ALFRED: I know it is difficult.
Laurel: What can we do? We can only pray to God.
(ALFRED sighs)
Laurel: Daddy… Don’t worry.
(Harold enters)
Harold: We are about to leave.
ALFRED: Coming…
