Some notes.

This one is pretty predictable and a bit cliche.  And while those things can be addressed, the English is full of errors.

'your' is not 'you're'
'whined' is not 'wind'
'jays' is not 'jay's'

When you address someone, it requires a comma....come with me, Jeff.

The English mistakes will sabotage your efforts.  Most readers will stop at the first or second mistake and write  you off as a amateur who hasn't taken the time to learn English.  Don't give them the opportunity.

'Your' should be 'you're' a lot of the time. Steve feels a loser all the time? Really? He lead troops, he sounds tougher than that... At least reword that. I don't think he should cry about not finding a job, but maybe he could cry about seeing people blown up. But I might be wrong. Maybe he could cry about not finding work, but deep down he's crying about something else, is that what it is? I thought the way Steve spoke to his son, like he was a soldier was a bit strange. Too literal. I thought Steve's different relationship style with his wife and son was also strange. I thought Steve's son under-reacted to his hair pulling. Your script's ending seems unfinished. Keep working on it, I guess...
