JAMES THOMAS (32), a middle aged man with a criminal record, that has been unable to find stable work for months due to his record, searches through the cabinet, frustrated and desperate because he can’t provide food and formula to feed his two daughters (6 months, 3) that cry in the background.
You need to show (through dialogue or action) - not tell. i.e., don't tell us he can't find work, has a criminal record, frustrated because he can't find food for his daughters, etc. because there is no way to film that. You have to establish these facts through dialogue or action.
Check other parts of your script to see if you have similar issues. Good luck.
