EXT. LAND OFFICE/HOLLIS HOME (SILVERADO) – DAY
The land office is in the front of the first floor of the Hollis home, a separate, two-story structure on a side street.
Now we’re looking down the porch as KATE HOLLIS embraces her brothers, Emmett and Jake. Her big, bear-like, gentle husband, J.T., comes out to add his greetings. After the laying on of hands, the attention of all four is drawn to the doorway and a figure we cannot yet see.
Now he steps shyly into view: eleven-year-old AUGIE. Jake makes a show of shaking Augie’s hand, man to man. Emmett kneels to greet him at eye level; the boy’s grown a lot in five years.
EXT. FARMHOUSE RUINS – DAY
Mal dismounts near the blackened timbers and walks into the ruins. He looks around in a daze: he’s home, but there’s no home there.
