The plane game

One pitch a day: in August of 2011, I dedicate twenty minutes each day to writing an "elevator pitch" for a story or a game.

A young woman in Africa dreams of living in Europe. Every day, she sits on a chair by the window and pretends she is a passenger in a plane. She daydreams she is on an important international trip. She holds a dummy cell phone a street merchant once sold to her father and imagines she is using it for business.
Her parents give her a real cell phone. While she plays her plane game, the phone rings. At the other end of the line, a voice requests instructions regarding the new store in Paris.
