wanted: help to id shrub/vine

Happy Sunday,
I am hoping that someone here might recognize the descrip of the shrub or vine so I can id it. There is only two long branches coming from the ground and it has eliptical leaves. I thought it had tiny bright orange berries on it until I investigated and its actually little white seeds covered with an orange coat, in groups of 1 to 3 and inside papery looking husks. Very beautiful and the seeds are just now popping out of the husks. Anyone have an idea? Thanks.
