EXT. GAS STATION DAY

(birds chirping)

A vast cornfield is shown with a gas station. PASSENGERS 1 &

2 dance and sing to radio while PASSENGER 3 observes them

and scribbles in his notebook.

(car rumbles loudly down road)

(muffled but loud radio from

outside car, My Humps by Black

Eyed Peas)

From hood of car we see ALFIE pull into gas station.

PASSENGERS 1 & 2 continue to sing and dance.PASSENGER 3

continues scribbling.

ALFIE gets out and goes into gas station.

(car door slams)

INT. CAR DAY

PASSENGER 1 turns down (My Humps by Black Eyed Peas)

,watches ALFIE enter the gas station, and pick a soda.

PASSENGER 1

Do you think he’d be interested?

PASSENGER 2

Interested?

In me!

PASSENGER 2

Uhm...I’m not sure he’s that kind

of guy.

PASSENGER 3

Leave ’im alone ladies.

2.

INT. GAS STATION DAY

ALFIE pulls change and crumpled dollars out of his jean

pockets and drops a handful of money on the cashier counter

as he sets down his soda. ALFIE looks up at cashier.

(ALFIE seems mentally

preoccupied)

INT. CAR DAY

We see ALFIE in the process of checking out from the car.

PASSENGER 1

I don’t see why he wouldn’t be.

PASSENGER 1 shrugs the conversation off and turns the radio

slightly back up before anyone else can respond.

PASSENGER 3 shakes head dismissing the girls. PASSENGER 3

puts away his notebook.

INT. GAS STATION DAY

Cashier Checks ALFIE out.

From ALFIE’s POV we see him grab his reciept and soda as he

exits gas station.

INT. CAR DAY

ALFIE walks towards car. ALFIE enters, sets down his soda,

and buckles his seatbelt.

(All is seen from backseat

facing forward POV as rest of

passengers readjust to

continue ride)

INT. CAR EARLY EVENING

ALFIE is still driving. He appears focused and deep in

thought.

(same car rumbling but slow,

slight crickets added)

ALFIE

(whispers sharply)

Guys, we’re almost there. Guys.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED: 3.

(continues driving but turns

around seat while attempting

to wake others)

PASSENGER 2

Wha? ...Oh.

PASSENGER 2 sits up. ALFIE is still turned and smiles at her

(friendly).

PASSENGER 2

Alfie!

(Car hits a deer in the road)

ALFIE gets out and runs towards deer.

PASSENGER 1 wakes up with a grunt.

We see ALFIE standing over the deer contemplating it.

PASSENGER 1

What is he doing?

PASSENGER 2

(blankly with wide eyes)

We hit a deer...

PASSENGER 1

(scratches head and yawns)

ahhh.

We see ALFIE start to try and drag the dead deer.

PASSENGER 3

(mumbles under breath)

*various expletives*

PASSENGER 3 gets out as well and aids ALFIE

(We hear the grunts of heavy

lifting as the DEER is loaded

into/onto the car)

PASSENGER 1 and 2 look at each other questioningly as ALFIE

and PASSENGER 3 re-enter car.

(We see this from PASSENGER

3’s POV)

Everyone gets re-settled in car

ALFIE

(As he wipes brow)

Well that’s that.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED: 4.

PASSENGER 1

(Alarmed)

That’s what!?

PASSENGER 3

(matter-of-factly)

That’s dinner.

PASSENGER 3 finds notebook and returns to sketching as car

moves on.

CUT TO:

EXT. CAMPSITE EVENING

Innards and blood are seen as ALFIE cuts open and begins to

clean the deer.

PASSENGER 3 sits across from ALFIE furiously sketching in

his notebook as he intently watches ALFIE clean the deer.

ALFIE

(to PASSENGER 3)

Hey. You wanna help the girls

finish setting up the tent?

PASSENGER 3

(still furiously sketching

looking at the deer)

They’ve got it handled.

PASSENGER 1 & 2 are then seen failing to set up a tent.

PASSENGER 1 is lying on the ground squinting at the

instructions while reading them to PASSENGER 1.

PASSENGER 2 is turning around holding various tent parts up

looking confused. Giving an earnest but pointless effort to

put together this tent.

CUT TO:

INT. TENT EVENING

PASSENGER 1 & 2 sit in tent. Passenger 1 is brushing her

hair.

We hear rustling and steps outside of tent.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED: 5.

PASSENGER 1

(To PASSENGER 2 as she primps)

It’s ALFIE! Go sit by the campfire

or something! hurry!

EXT. TENT EVENING

PASSENGER 2 stumbles out and walks over to campfire.

INT. TENT EVENING

ALFIE

(enters while eating an apple)

What’s up?

PASSENGER 1

(flirting)

Alfie! I was just thinking about

you.

EXT. TENT EVENING

A tired PASSENGER 2 walks up on a ferociously scribbling

PASSENGER 3 sitting next to the fire across from the cleaned

deer carcass.

PASSENGER 2 sits across from PASSENGER 3.

INT. TENT EVENING

ALFIE sits and PASSENGER 1 scoots closer to him

intentionally.

PASSENGER 1

(puts hand on ALFIE’s knee)

This trip is such a great bonding

experience Alfie. I think we can

realize how much we have in common.

EXT. TENT EVENING

PASSENGER 2

how are you?

PASSENGER 3

(continues drawing)

Shhhh...

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED: 6.

PASSENGER 2

umm. okay.

PASSENGER 3

(focused on drawing ignores

PASSENGER 2)

shh.

PASSENGER 2 gets up and crosses to side of PASSENGER 3

quietly.We get a quick glimpse at the horrible drawing in

his notebook before PASSENGER 3 slams it shut.

PASSENGER 2

(referring to notebook)

What are all the pictures?

INT. TENT EVENING

PASSENGER 1 leans in for a smooch, but ALFIE leans away too.

ALFIE puts his hand on PASSENGER 1’s knee and she takes away

her hand from his knee.

ALFIE

I’m sorry...I just.

ALFIE moves to get up and leave. ALFIE pauses noticing a bit

hair out of place on PASSENGER 1. PASSENGER 1 sits slighty

embarrassed or surprised wide-eyed with the slightest open

mouth.

ALFIE moves the hair back to place.

ALFIE

Perfect.

ALFIE exits tent.

EXT. TENT EVENING

PASSENGER 3

They aren’t pictures.

PASSENGER 2

*begins to speak*

PASSENGER 3

(cuts off PASSENGER 2)

Let me draw you.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED: 7.

PASSENGER 2

If they arent pictures...

PASSENGER 3

(stabs notebook with pen in

anger)

I can’t draw you if you’re moving!

PASSENGER 3 gets up and storms off in an unjustifiable

amount of rage right as ALFIE comes out of the tent.

PASSENGER 3 almost knocks ALFIE over as he storms off out of

sight.

ALFIE

(to PASSENGER 2, in reference

to PASSENGER 3)

What was that all about?

EXT. OUTSIDE OF CAMPSITE EVENING

We see PASSENGER 2 and ALFIE enter tent from PASSENGER 3’s

POV but we don’t know it is PASSENGER 3 at the time.

(We hear rapid scribbling)

EXT. TENT EVENING

We see the tent with the lamp on inside.

EXT. OUTSIDE OF CAMPSITE EVENING

In PASSENGER 3’s POV we see PASSENGER 3’s notebook. He slams

it shut and we see he is holding the knife used to clean the

deer.

PASSENGER 3

They are NOT pictures.

EXT. TENT EVENING

WE see the tent with the lamp on inside from PASSENGER 3’s

POV having now walked near it.

PASSENGER 3

They are plans.

ALFIE exits the tent. He does not notice PASSENGER 3. ALFIE

appears to be relieving himself with his back to PASSENGER

3.

8.

We see the deer knife again from PASSENGER 3’s POV.

INT. TENT EVENING

PASSENGER 1 awakens and wonders where ALFIE and PASSENGER 3

went off to. She shakes PASSENGER 2 but doesn’t get her to

wake up.

PASSENGER 1

(as she peeks her head out of

the tent)

Alfie?

EXT. TENT EVENING

We see PASSENGER 1 exit the tent and walk past ALFIE’s dead

body on the ground without noticing. The camera stays on the

tent and ALFIE’s body on the ground as PASSENGER 1 walks off

camera.

We see PASSENGER 3, with deer knife, walk from camera left

off camera right just as PASSENGER 1 previously exited.

PASSENGER 1

(we cannot see her)

*screams*

INT. TENT EVENING

(PASSENGER 1’s scream is

heard)

We see PASSENGER 2 awake suddenly from a bird’s eye view and

sit up.

EXT. TENT EVENING

We see PASSENGER 2 exit tent. She see’s ALFIE’s body gutted

like a deer.

PASSENGER 2

(speechless)

*reacts to ALFIE’s body with gasps*

PASSENGER 2 stumbles towards camera right and happens upon

PASSENGER 1’s body gutted in the same fashion.

PASSENGER 2

(with tears)

*gasps and chokes on tears*

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED: 9.

PASSENGER 2 franctically runs off camera left.

She reaches the campfire which has just about burnt out. She

frantically looks about for PASSENGER 3 and sees him no

where. It is dark, but there is enough light to see the

general campsite area.

CUT TO:

We see from a low angle the tent and the surrounding area

from the ground near the campfire’s POV

(in the distance)

PASSENGER 3

Oh Dearieeeeee...Oh Deeaaarrrrieee!

We see PASSENGER 3’s feet pass by.

(frustrated searching sounds)

(grunts from PASSENGER 3)

Now in PASSENGER 3’s POV we see the campsite as he searches.

Outside of his POV we see PASSENGER 2 hidden underneath the

cleaned deer carcass.

PASSENGER 3

(to PASSENGER 2 as he searches

forher desperately)

Dearie I want to finish your

"picture".

PASSENGER 3 stops in the center of camp and his body

displays his anger in not finding PASSENGER 2.

PASSENGER 3

(upwards using his whole body)

*screams in anguish*

EXT. ROAD EARLY MORNING

We see the car speed into the distance from behind.

INT. KITCHEN EARLY MORNING

A middle aged woman washes her hands after finishing dishes

in the sink.

(THE DOORBELL RINGS)

10.

EXT. HOUSE EARLY MORNING

With the same car pulled haphazardly into the driveway we

see PASSENGER 2 covered in deer innards and fluid standing

exhausted and terrified on the front porch.

INT. HOUSE EARLY MORNING

From close up we see her dry her hands with a dishtowel and

we follow her hands as she walks to answer the front door.

We see her hand turn the doorknob.

PASSENGER 2

(in tears)

Mom?

THE END.
