Writing synopsis

I've been asked to send longer synopsis for two of my very short scripts from my scripts for sale page. I felt that was kind of strange. Don't you read a synopsis to save time? To get a hint of the script might be worthy your time? Then why do you need a synopsis for a two page script?

I've never heard a writer that loved to write a synopsis. It is not the forum where a writer feels he or she can shine. It is something that needs to be done, and though we all know it is vital for a sell to come through, it is not here we put our passion.

What on earth should I write between a one sentence treatment and a script of two pages that sells the script better than the script itself?
