Queue fade in of “The Final Cut” (Pink Floyd)
And Brian Craig
1. EXT SCHOOL
Camera is focussed on the sky. After a few seconds the camera tilts down to long over shot of pathway.
Queue fade out of “The Final Cut” (Pink Floyd)
AHMED and BRIAN come around the corner. They walk down the pathway. As they do so, they make way for two people. They continue walking.
I never would have thought I would
have got an A on International Studies.
I’m just happy I got a B. Anyway,
I’ve got to go get my results for English.
Alright, see ya later then.
BRIAN runs off. AHMED walks on. He stops for SHAUN steps out from behind corner.
(SMILES) How’s it going, cunt.
Shut up and get out of my way you loser.
I don’t think so. So how’s your girlfriend? (SMIRKS)
She still depressed from when I did her and dumped her?
Actually, she’s not you insensitive asshole.
What, did you cheer her up by getting into her pants...
Shut your mouth now, Shaun or I’ll make you.
Oh, ho! (HE LAUGHS) You did, didn’t ya?
AHMED charges SHAUN and tackles him to the ground. AHMED punches SHAUN in the face four times as SHAUN tries to defend himself. AHMED get’s up and looks at SHAUN. SHAUN is bleeding from
Why don’t you talk now huh?
SHAUN wipes his nose on his sleeve. He looks up
You’ll regret that. Just you wait.
Right now, I couldn’t care less about what you say.
AHMED walks off. SHAUN gets up and wipes his nose a couple more times. Camera fades out.
2. INT SHAUN’S HOUSE
SHAUN opens the front house quietly. He sneaks in and closes the door behind him just as softly. He creeps forward to the hallway. He looks left and right and starts sneaking right. He
gets to the end of the hallway and looks in. BRIAN is lying on the bed looking at his laptop screen. SHAUN quietly pulls out his knife and advances the last few steps to BRIAN. SHAUN leans in. HE
quickly puts one hand onto BRIAN’S mouth and slits his throat. He backs away. He pulls out a tissue and cleans the knife. He puts both in his pocket and leans over BRIAN’S limp form. He takes out
BRIAN’S phone and fiddles with until he sees AHMED’S number. He pulls out his own phone and buttons in the number. He puts his ear to the phone and says the following.
Cop that you son of a bitch.
AHMED is walking down a footpath. His phone goes off. He takes his phone out of his pocket and answers.
I said I’d get you back.
AHMED stops looking alarmed.
How did you get my number?
Simple. I got it off Brian’s phone. But I’d think you’d be
more worried about your friend Brian.
AHMED looks extremely scared for his friend.
Where are you? What have you done to him you bastard?
Nothin’ yet. But, eh, my hand holding the knife could slip
across his throat.
Don’t you dare.
Better hurry. My hand’s slipping.
AHMED hangs up and starts running as fast as he can for BRIAN’S place (SHAUN’S house in reality).
4. INT SHAUN’S HOUSE
AHMED opens the door quickly and rushes through the house (without closing the door) straight to BRIAN’S bedroom. He sees BRIAN’S dead body.
Queue fade in “Total eclipse of the Sun” (Air Supply)
AHMED kneels down, puts his head on the bed and cries for a moment. He looks up, wipes his eyes, takes a sniff and says the following.
I’ll kill you, you fucking bastard!
AHMED runs out the door and down the street. He blindly hopes that SHAUN is at the park. He slows down once he comes to within sight of the park. He sees SHAUN sitting on the
fence and runs after him, taking out a knife as he does so. SHAUN sees him and looking worried he falls over the fence. He gets up and keeps going until he falls over 5 metres further along. AHMED
stops at SHAUN’S feet.
You killed my friend you fucking dumbshit!
Now we’ll see how you like it!
AHMED stabs SHAUN in the stomach as SHAUN cringes in fear.
Queue black and white as well as slow motion. Back to colour and normal speed.
AHMED looks at SHAUN for a moment or two and then kneels down. He begins to cry.
Camera rises to sky and fades to credits.
