FADE IN:

EXT. DREAMLIKE PLACE - NIGHT
                                                            
CLOSE ON: ARIADNE'S eye, a 33-year-old woman, blinking
several times.
                                                            
ARIADNE'S POV: The place that she is in is DARK, STORMY,
many CLIFFS surround her, no vegetation only rocks, and
there are DOORS everywhere. Very surreal place like a Dali's
painting.
                                                            
Ariadne is disoriented. She looks everywhere, shakes her
head and walks through the strange place.
                                                            
She walks with precaution, some parts are narrow and every
time she puts her foot on the rocky ground, some PEBBLES
fall to the bottom of the cliff.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
Helloo!! Is anybody here?
                                                            
Ariadne stops to catch her breath. She inspects the ground,
but it's petrified like everything that surrounds her.
                                                            
Suddenly, Ariadne sees a STRANGER at the distance, she
follows him. The Stranger looks like a man, but his face is
in shadows; he wears a blue striped shirt.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
Hey! I need help here.
                                                            
The Stranger disappears like smoke, Ariadne looks
everywhere.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
Where are you?
                                                            
Ariadne turns around a rock and she sees the Stranger
standing next to a DOOR. Ariadne approaches cautiously to
the door when it opens by itself. A WHITE LIGHT blinds her.
Few seconds later the light fades away and she finds herself
in --
                                                            
 
EXT. SCHOOL PLAYGROUND 1984 - DAY
                                                            
Ariadne recovers her sight, she stands in the middle of the
playground instead of the strange place.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
What the hell?
                                                            

2.

Ariadne sees an eight-year-old GIRL on the swing. She gets
close to the girl and notices that she cries.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
Hey sweetie, why are you crying?
                                                            
The little girl doesn't response. Ariadne waves her hand in
front of her, but the girl doesn't react. Ariadne looks at
her hand, it seems normal, she touches the swing and she
doesn't feel anything.

Ariadne looks around, CARS, and other CHILDREN are dressed
in early 80's style.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
It can't be. This is my old
school.
                                                            
Ariadne turns toward the little girl to get a better look at
her.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
Oh my god! she's me.
                                                            
                       JASON NINE YEARS (O.S.)
Hi Ariadne!
                                                            
Ariadne turns, JASON, a nine-year-old boy, joins the little
girl on the swing.
                                                            
                       JASON NINE YEARS
I heard that you're parents are
getting divorced.
                                                            
Jason swings up and down.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE EIGHT YEARS
Mom says I'll spend some time with
Dad and some with her.
                                                            
                       JASON NINE YEARS
It sucks!
                                                            
Jason jumps out of the swing and grabs the girl hand.
                                                            
                       JASON NINE YEARS
Come on let's play I don't like to
see you sad.
                                                            
The girl keeps crying and doesn't move. Jason puts his hands
on the ground and lifts his legs up to the air and walks
using his hands.
                                                            

3.

                       JASON NINE YEARS
Hey look!
                                                            
The girl watches Jason and smiles. She jumps out of the
swing.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE EIGHT YEARS
Come on let see if you can catch
me.
                                                            
The girl runs away. Jason losses his balance and falls.
Immediately Jason gets up and runs behind the girl.
                                                            
                       JASON NINE YEARS
Hey wait up!
                                                            
Ariadne sees both children running away.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
I don't understand why I'm seeing
this.
                                                            
Ariadne lifts her head toward the blue sky.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
Can anybody tell me what the hell
it's going on?
                                                            
As a blink of the eye, Ariadne is back to --
                                                            
                                         FADE TO WHITE:
                                                            
 
EXT. DREAMLIKE PLACE - NIGHT
                                                            
The CLIFF, that Ariadne is on, starts to CRUMBLE. Ariadne
losses her balance for a moment, and she regains control
again.
                                                            
Ariadne breaths heavily, the Stranger appears again. He
shows another door.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
I don't want to go in there.
                                                            
Ariadne turns and the ground starts to crumble again. The
Stranger grabs her and he insists about the door.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
Ok, you win for now. I just don't
know why you just talk.
                                                            

4.

Ariadne takes a deep breath and goes through the door, as
before the same white light blinds her. Ariadne opens her
eyes to find herself in --
                                                            
 
EXT. FOOTBALL STADIUM 1992 - NIGHT
                                                            
Ariadne recovers her sight to find a seventeen-year-old
Jason in front of her.

Jason looks everywhere. A TEENAGER GIRL passes next to him,
he stops her.
                                                            
                       JASON SEVENTEEN
Have you seen Ariadne?
                                                            
                       TEEN GIRL
I think I saw her under the
bleachers with Ray.
                                                            
                       JASON SEVENTEEN
Damn!
                                                            
Jason rushes to the bleachers. Ariadne follows him trying to
keep with him.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
Why are you looking for me?
                                                            
 
EXT. BLEACHERS 1992 - NIGHT
                                                            
A sixteen-year-old Ariadne is with RAY, a popular football
player. Young Ariadne and Ray kiss passionately. Ray opens
young Ariadne's BLOUSE and keeps kissing her. She is heavily
DRUGGED.
                                                            
Suddenly, Jason grabs Ray from behind and PUNCHES Ray's
face.
                                                            
                       RAY
What's wrong with you?
                                                            
Ray wipes out blood from his mouth.
                                                            
                       JASON SEVENTEEN
You don't ever touch her again!
                                                            
Adult Ariadne's eyes widen in surprise by what just
happened. Young Ariadne loses her consciences; Jason grabs
her before she falls.
                                                            

5.

                       RAY
Hey! I didn't force her; she
wanted to.
                                                            
Jason ignores Ray, he walks away with young Ariadne on his
arms. Ray from the distance teases Jason.
                                                            
                       RAY
      (Shouting)
You're pissed because she was with
me instead of you!
                                                            
Jason stops for a moment looks at young Ariadne with
tenderness and walks again.
                                                            
Adult Ariadne follows Jason, and looks at Ray
disapprovingly.
                                                            
 
INT. JASON'S BEDROOM 1992 - NIGHT
                                                            
Young Ariadne sleeps on Jason's BED. Jason is on the phone.
                                                            
                       JASON SEVENTEEN
She was tired and she just fell
sleep... it's no problem I'll take
care of her... Good night!
                                                            
Jason hangs up of the phone, SIGHS, and sits on a chair
looking at young Ariadne. He takes a GUITAR and starts to
play a soft TUNE.
                                                            
Adult Ariadne stands at the doorway looking at Jason.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
This is what happened that day.
Why you didn't tell me? The last
thing I remember was Ray giving me
a beer. That son of a bitch
drugged me.
                                                            
                                         FADE TO WHITE:
                                                            
 
EXT. DREAMLIKE PLACE - NIGHT
                                                            
The white light vanishes. Ariadne looks around.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
Back again to this DAMN PLACE!
                                                            
A strange NOISE draws Ariadne's attention. The noise comes
from the bottom of the cliff. Ariadne approaches to the

6.

edge as the SOUND builds up. Ariadne kneels to see what
produces the noise. She only sees darkness, but the noise
turns to MURMURS telling her something she cannot
understand.
                                                            
She bents even more to try to understand what the murmurs
say; suddenly a SKELETICAL HAND grabs her hand and pulls her
down.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
Nooo!! Let me go!
                                                            
Ariadne STRUGLES with the hand, but another HAND appears and
grabs Ariadne's arm. The VOICES are now clear.
                                                            
                       VOICES
      (Deep voices)
Come to us!
                                                            
Ariadne keeps fighting.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
Please let me go!! I don't want to
go there.
                                                            
The cliff crumbles, more HANDS are trying to grab Ariadne.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
SOMEBODY HELP ME!
                                                            
                       VOICES
There is nothing for you, remember
you said that.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
What? No it can't be true. How
you know that?
                                                            
                       VOICES
No one is going to hurt you
anymore, come to us.
                                                            
Ariadne stops for a moment.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
Maybe you're right. People just
hurt me my so called boyfriend, I
lost my job...
                                                            
The hands pull Ariadne down, but a SOFT GUITAR TUNE plays.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
That sound!
                                                            

7.

Ariadne stands up using all her strength and starts KICKING
and PUNCHING until she is free. Ariadne walks backward far
from the edge.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
No is not time.
                                                            
Ariadne breaths heavily, the cliff collapse under her feet.
Ariadne manages to grab the EDGE and she STRUGGLES to climb.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
I can't.
                                                            
Ariadne SLIPS and before she falls the Stranger's HAND holds
her. In a moment the Stranger lifts her up into safety.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
Thanks, I was wondering where were
you?
                                                            
Ariadne catches her breath. The Stranger walks away.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
Please wait.
                                                            
Ariadne stands up and walks behind the Stranger.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
Come on! I don't remember how I
get here and you are the only...
person I've seen. You have to tell
me something.
                                                            
The Stranger stops, Ariadne stops as well, there is a new
door in front of her.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
You've got to be kidding me.
Another door?
                                                            
The Stranger nods. Ariadne crosses her arms and stands
firmly.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
No, I won't go in there, until you
tell me something.
                                                            
The Stranger forces Ariadne to go through the door. The
white light appears again, and when it disappears she finds
herself in --

People work in their cubicles in an important ADVERTISING
FIRM. Ariadne sees herself walking down the hallway toward
her assistant's desk.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
Good morning everyone!
                                                            
                       EMPLOYEES
Good morning!
                                                            
BEATRICE, a mid 30's woman, smiles at Ariadne.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
Good morning Beatrice. What do you
have for me?
                                                            
Beatrice looks through her notes.
                                                            
                       BEATRICE
The big one wants to see you.
                                                            
Ariadne stands behind Beatrice's chair, and she sees herself
talking to Beatrice.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
Probably he just wants to
congratulate me.
                                                            
Beatrice sees Ariadne with a big smile on her face.
                                                            
                       BEATRICE
You look happy!
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
I am. Today is Kevin's birthday
and I'm planning to take him to
his favorite restaurant.
                                                            
                       BEATRICE
That's nice of you.
                                                            
Ariadne smiles and walks away from Beatrice's desk. She
turns.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
It's a surprise, if he calls, you
haven't seen me.
                                                            
Ariadne heads to ANDREW MCKENZIE'S office, a business man in
his 40's who types on his laptop. The glass door is half
open and Ariadne KNOCKS.

                       ANDREW
Please come in, and close the
door.

the door in front of her. She stays outside of the glass
door.

Ariadne approaches to Andrew's desk.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
What's wrong?
                                                            
Andrew looks up at her in surprise.
                                                            
                       ANDREW
Please sit.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
I'm fine I'd rather stand.
                                                            
Andrew stands up, walks toward a WINDOW, and stares through
it for a few seconds.
                                                            
Ariadne looks at him and she gets anxious. Andrew turns and
faces Ariadne.
                                                            
                       ANDREW
You know, these are hard times,
and the company is taking harsh
decisions...
                                                            
Ariadne frowns.
                                                            
                       ANDREW (cont'd)
I'm really sorry, but I have to
lay you off.
                                                            
Ariadne's eyes widen in disbelief.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
Why me?
                                                            
Andrew looks at Ariadne sadly.
                                                            
                       ANDREW
You have no idea how hard this is
for me. You will receive a good
compensation...
                                                            

10.

Ariadne from behind of the glass door closes her eyes, and
she moves away. Herself shouts at Andrew.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
I don't give a damn. You and
everyone in this company can burn
in hell. I don't care anymore.

Thank you Beatrice. You've been an
excellent assistant. I hope this
company treats you better than me.
                                                            
Beatrice stands and spills some coffee on her desk.
                                                            
                       BEATRICE
Wait Ariadne! What's going on?

seconds.

Wait!
                                                            
Ariadne looks up very sad.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
I was planning to surprise you,
but I guess I was the one who got
surprised.
                                                            
                       KEVIN
Please don't leave like this, let
me explain.
                                                            
Ariadne stands next to the doorway and witnesses herself how
she goes to the door and opens it, and turns to face Kevin
one more time.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
I thought that taking you to
dinner will make me forget my job
loss.
                                                            
Ariadne leaves the house. Kevin bangs the wall very hard.
                                                            
                       WOMAN (O.S.)
Hey! I'm waiting for you.

Ariadne cries as she holds the phone.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
Hey Jason. Are you busy?
                                                            
 
INT. JASON'S OFFICE - DAY
                                                            
Jason's face changes to a serious expression, when he hears
Ariadne's voice.
                                                            
                       JASON
You ok?
                                                            
                       ARIADNE (V.O.)
I just saw Kevin with another
woman and..
                                                            
                       JASON
You can go to my place, and I'll
meet you there.
                                                            
 
EXT. ROAD - DAY
                                                            
Ariadne's car is on a very narrow road driving recklessly. A
truck comes from the other side behind a curve.
                                                            
 
INT. JASON'S OFFICE - DAY
                                                            
A CRASH sounds through Jason's phone. Jason puts his
suitcase back on his desk.
                                                            
                       JASON
Are you there!
                                                            
 
INT. ARIADNE'S CAR - DAY
                                                            
Ariadne is over the STEERING WHEEL bleeding. PANS down to
reveal cell phone on car's floor.
                                                            
                       JASON (V.O.)
Please answer me.
                                                            

14.

Outside the car Ariadne looks at herself in horror through
the driver's window. An instant later she is back at --
                                                            
 
EXT. DREAMLIKE PLACE - NIGHT
                                                            
Ariadne is in shock after what she saw. The Stranger
appears next to her. She turns to face him.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
Am I dead?
                                                            
Ariadne grabs the Stranger's SHIRT furiously.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE (cont'd)
Am I dead? Come on say something!
Do something!
                                                            
Ariadne kneels down with her hands on her face. The Stranger
helps Ariadne to get up and he shows her another door.
Ariadne struggles and cries.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
Please no more! I don't want to
see anything else.
                                                            
The Stranger grabs Ariadne by her arm and forces her to go
through the door, she finds herself in --
                                                            
 
INT. HOSPITAL RECEPTION - NIGHT
                                                            
Ariadne sees Jason coming to a NURSE at reception desk.
                                                            
                       JASON
I'm looking for Ariadne Dawson.
She was in a car accident.
                                                            
The nurse types on her computer, she doesn't look at Jason.
                                                            
                       NURSE
Are you a relative?
                                                            
                       JASON
No. I'm her friend. Her family is
not here, but I'm like a brother
to her.
                                                            
The nurse takes her eyes out of the computer to face Jason.
                                                            
                       NURSE
She's in surgery. You have to
wait.
                                                            

15.

Jason forces a smile.
                                                            
                       JASON
Thanks.
                                                            
Jason walks in front of Ariadne. Ariadne looks at him with
tenderness.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
You know, you always been there
for me. Even now you're here.
                                                            
Jason sits, puts his car keys in his jacket. Ariadne sits
next to him.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
I gave you that jacket many years
ago, and you're still wearing it.
                                                            
From down the hall a DOCTOR comes to talk to the Nurse, she
points at Jason.
                                                            
Jason and Ariadne stand up at the same time, the Doctor
comes closer to Jason.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR
The Nurse told me that you're Miss
Dawson's friend.
                                                            
                       JASON
That's right. How is she?
                                                            
                       DOCTOR
She suffered a very bad head
injury and some internal bleeding.
We did what we could, now we have
to wait.
                                                            
Jason passes his hand over his face. Ariadne's body trembles
nervously.
                                                            
                       JASON
Can I see her?
                                                            
                       DOCTOR
Yes. A Nurse will indicate you the
way.
                                                            
The Doctor walks away, Jason lowers his head.
                                                            
                       JASON
Thanks.
                                                            
 

16.

INT. HOSPITAL ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Ariadne sees herself unconscious with respiratory tubes
plugged to her. Jason sits beside her bed holding her hand.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
I'm not dead yet, so I must be
like in middle of this world and
                                                            
Kevin stands at the doorway, Jason stands up and throws
Kevin outside the room to --
                                                            
 
INT. HOSPITAL HALLWAY - NIGHT
                                                            
Jason slams Kevin against the wall.
                                                            
                       JASON
What do you think you're doing
here?
                                                            
                       KEVIN
Hey! she's my girlfriend and I
want to see her.
                                                            
Jason SCOFFS. Ariadne stands at the doorway.
                                                            
                       JASON
You're one of the reasons that she
is on that bed.
                                                            
Nurses and other people watch Jason and Kevin argument.
                                                            
                       KEVIN
Look! I was planning to tell her,
I didn't expect her in my place so
early.
                                                            
                       JASON
That is your excuse!
                                                            
Jason holds Kevin's shirt and shows him his FIST.
                                                            
Kevin defies Jason.
                                                            
                       KEVIN
Go ahead. Hit me.
                                                            
Ariadne approaches to Jason from behind, Jason prepares to
beat Kevin. Ariadne puts her hand on his shoulder.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
He's a scum bag.
                                                            

17.

Jason turns his head as he feels something on his shoulder,
but nobody is there. Ariadne removes her hand when she sees
Jason's reaction.
                                                            
                       KEVIN
Are you chicken out!
                                                            
Jason lowers his hand and releases Kevin.
                                                            
                       JASON
Get out!
                                                            
Kevin arranges his shirt, nurses talk to each other.
                                                            
A SECURITY GUARD approaches to Kevin and Jason.
                                                            
                       SECURITY GUARD
Is everything in order here?
                                                            
Kevin heads his gaze to Jason.
                                                            
                       KEVIN
This doesn't end here.
                                                            
Jason tries to go against Kevin again, the security guard
stands in middle of him and Kevin.
                                                            
                       SECURITY GUARD
This is a hospital, if you two
don't calm down then I have to ask
you to leave the premises.
                                                            
Jason calms down.
                                                            
                       KEVIN
I was on my way out.
                                                            
                       SECURITY GUARD
Good.
                                                            
Kevin walks down the hallway followed by the security guard.
Jason and Ariadne gets back to --
                                                            
 
INT. HOSPITAL ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Jason opens and takes off his jacket, puts it at the back of
the chair, and he sits beside Ariadne's bed. He wears a blue
striped shirt.
                                                            

18.

                       JASON
That jerk is never going to hurt
you again. You remember Ray?
Probably not.
                                                            
Jason sits back and SMIRKS.
                                                            
                       JASON (cont'd)
That Ray tried to rape you.
                                                            
Ariadne looks at Jason with attention and GASPS.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
You and the guy in the weird place
are the same person. You're the
one who's helping me.
                                                            
The MONITOR starts to beep rapidly. Jason stands and holds
Ariadne's hand.
                                                            
                       JASON
Please you can fight this, I
cannot loose you. NURSE!
                                                            
A couple of NURSES and the DOCTOR enter the room.
                                                            
                       NURSE
You have to leave.
                                                            
Jason leaves the room reluctantly. Ariadne goes out as well.
                                                            
 
INT. HOSPITAL HALLWAY - NIGHT
                                                            
Jason walks up and down and he sees a MAN with a GUITAR he
runs towards him.
                                                            
Ariadne stands outside of the door.
                                                            
                       JASON
Please, can I borrow your guitar?
                                                            
The man looks at Jason and he gives his guitar. Jason
returns in front of Ariadne's room and he starts to play.
                                                            
Ariadne walks around Jason, her eyes are wide open.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
That's the same music I heard when
I almost fall.
                                                            
The doctor comes out of the room; Jason stops playing.
                                                            

19.

                       DOCTOR
She's stable for now.
                                                            
Jason SIGHS in relief.
                                                            
                       JASON
Thanks Doctor.
                                                            
The Doctor and Nurses leave. Ariadne and Jason return to the
room.
                                                            
 
INT. HOSPITAL ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
The guitar man shows up at the door.
                                                            
                       GUITAR MAN
Hey buddy! Can I have that back.
                                                            
Jason turns and return the guitar.
                                                            
                       JASON
Yes sure. Thanks a lot.
                                                            
                       GUITAR MAN
No problem.
                                                            
Jason sits back at the wall, he closes his eyes. Ariadne is
in front of him, she puts her hand on his face to caress
him.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
I've been a fool all these years.
I'm sorry.
                                                            
Ariadne stands and turns to herself.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
I want to come back. Please I want
to come back.
                                                            
Ariadne gets closer to herself until she touches her own
HAND, the white light appears again. Few seconds later the
light disappears. Jason rests at the wall and Ariadne still
in bed, the other Ariadne is not in the room anymore.
                                                            
Ariadne opens her EYES, she tries to move, but it hurts, and
everything is FUZZY until she sees JASON.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
Jason, is that you?
                                                            
Jason open his eyes when he hears Ariadne's voice.
                                                            

20.

                       JASON
Yes, it's me.
                                                            
Jason gets close and holds Ariadne's hand.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
Thank you!
                                                            
                       JASON
Shhh! You need to rest.
                                                            
Ariadne turns her head, she goes back to sleep. Jason smiles
at her.
                                                            
 
EXT. UNIVERSITY CAMPUS - DAY
                                                            
TITLE ON SCREEN: 3 months later.
                                                            
Jason waits outside of the School of Communications. Ariadne
comes down the stairs.
                                                            
                       JASON
So?
                                                            
Ariadne lowers her head, Jason's eyes beg for an answer.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
Well, now I'm a proud faculty
member of the School of
Communications.
                                                            
Jason grabs Ariadne by her waist and raises her.
                                                            
                       JASON
I love you.
                                                            
                       ARIADNE
Why you didn't tell me before?
                                                            
                       JASON
I'm telling you now.
                                                            
Jason kisses Ariadne. Both look at each other and walk
together to the parking lot.
                                                            


FADE OUT.

From Sassa Date 2/2/2009 ***1/2
This play is very well done. It would make an excellent movie, but needs to be a little more in depth at certain points. Lengthen Kevin's and Jason argument. Have Ariadne throw the vase at the wall instead of dropping it to show a little more of her frustration. Overall excellent script.
