Untitled Screenplay - Pages 16-27

EXT. - Camp - Day

A camp sits in the middle of a sand pit. Surrounded by five cars, tents and shelters made 
from tarps are set up as people sit around fire places.

JASON sits in a car with the door wide open. He's shifting through medical supplies, 
as he makes a list of needed supplies. EMILY strides over to the car.

Emily

How's everything looking?

Jason turns away from the medical supplies, and lifts himself out of the car.

Jason

Not good. We're running low on most of the essentials. And I've been holding back on people for weeks now.

EMILY

Bet it doesn't help that I'm always rummaging through for my research.

JASON

That's different. Your research is important.

Emily laughs to herself at the remark.

EMILY

I fear my research has met it's end.

JASON

No. You can't You have to continue.

EMILY

I'm not taking up anymore of the groups resources for something that may not even work.

Emily grabs Jason by the shoulder, stopping him from rebutting.

EMILY

It was a nice run while we had it. Now just focus on what we're going to do with ourselves for 
the rest of our lives.

Jason sighs and turns back tot he car. Emily strides alongside the car, looking out in the distance. 
The sky is under complete cloud cover. A gust of wind blows through the camp, lifting sand across the 
surface of the earth.

EMILY

(To herself)

There hasn't been any sunlight for so long.

On the other side of camp, CULLUM and TERRAN sit by a small fire, looking into the dancing flames. 
DANNY walks by and joins the two. He sit down with a wrench, cleaning it with a dirty rag.

Danny

We've lost the truck. Transmission's shot.

Terran

No! Not the truck.

Cullum

There's no way of fixing it?

DANNY

We don't have spare parts. And that kind of truck requires special fitted parts.

TERRAN

Damn. That truck was the only thing that could really bust through anything.

DANNY

So now we're only down to four cars, as long as nothing else happens to any of them. And on top of 
that we need to find a gas station soon that hasn't already been emptied.

CULLUM

Hopefully Ryder and Ethan found something out in this backwards hick town.

TERRAN

I wouldn't count on it.

DANNY

I just hope they actually make it back.

Cullum and Terran give each other a grim look. Danny takes the wrench and places it in a pocket in 
his vest. They all return their gaze to the fire.

Ext. - Empty Parking Lot - Day

Liam, Ryder, and Ethan  make their way across an empty parking lot, with Ryder in the lead. Ethan 
turns to Liam, whose trailing behind.

ETHAN

So, if you don't mind me asking, why travel this long all alone?

LIAM

I guess things are better off this way.

ETHAN

How?

Liam holds back from saying anything.

ETHAN

I'm sorry. I'm just curious.

LIAM

It's fine. It's just, people tend to die around me.

ETHAN

Oh. I'm sorry.

LIAM

And being on my own, it's easier to slip by unnoticed.

ETHAN

I guess you have a point there.

LIAM

So this camp of yours...

ETHAN

Yeah. It's not as big as it used to be. When everything turned to shit, there was about twelve cars,
 buses, and trucks full of survivors. But there were disagreements amongst everyone, and people went their separate ways.

LIAM

How many of you are there now?

ETHAN

Well, after people left, we had six cars and a bus full of survivors. About three months ago, we camped 
too long in one spot outside of a bigger city, hoping we would be able to get as many supplies and maybe 
even find more survivors. After about a week in one spot, we were ambushed by the infected. We lost the
 bus and another car load of people.

LIAM

I'm sorry.

ETHAN

After that, we steered clear of any major cities, or even larger towns. But now that means we have 
fewer resources and supplies. That's why Ryder and I were out alone.

LIAM

And instead you found me.

ETHAN

Hey, another survivor is just as good as the rest.

Ryder stops at the edge of a wooded area, and turns to the two guys.

RYDER

Shhh. Stop.

Liam and Ethan stop. Ryder takes a step toward the woods, listening in. Liam and Ethan listen in as 
well. A branch cracks in the thick brush. Ryder takes the gun out from her belt, pointing it in the 
bushes. Liam slowly reaches for the knife in his belt. Ryder steps closer towards the path, gun in 
hand. Leaves rustle around. A squerell runs out across the path, and up a tree. Ryder sighs and steps back.

Liam grasps onto the knife. He spins around as an infected  runs right at the three. Liam bashes the 
infected to the side with his elbow. Ryder and Ethan spin to see the infect screech at them. Liam takes
 the knife and drives it into the infected's neck. The screeching stops, as blood gargles out of the wound. 
Ryder steps forward with he gun pointed at the infected.

LIAM

Wait!

He hold out his hand to stop Ryder.

LIAM

The gun shot, it will attract more.

Liam reaches back down and pulls the knife out from the neck. The infected starts to sit up, blood 
running from it's neck.

RYDER

(In protest)

It's still coming for us!

LIAM

Just wait!

The infected starts crawling towards Ethan and Ryder. Liam steps behind the infected, and slashes at the 
back of its head, near the top of the neck. The infected crumples to the ground, dead.

LIAM

You have to get the brain. The brain stem if you get the chance.

Liam wipes the bloody knife on the dirty, tattered shirt of the infected.

ETHAN

But...how?

LIAM

You learn a lot when you're all alone.

Ryder places the gun back on her belt. She turns back to the trail.

RYDER

Let's go. The camp's not to far off.

ETHAN

But Ryder...

RYDER

We have to get the camp moving if they're getting closer.

She turns back and starts walking down the trail. Liam pockets the knife, as he and Ethan follow behind.

EXT. - camp Outskirts - DAY

JOANNA walks around the far side of the sand pits, scouting the area.  She looks up at the tall mounts with a 
gun in hand. The sound of sand and gravel behind her, makes her turn. She points the gun at the giant mound. 
A small red ball rolls down the sand, towards her. Joanna lifts her foot stopping the ball.

Joanna

Clear!

At the top of the mound, Ryder, and Ethan appear into view, They begin sliding down the hill. Joanna waves to 
them as they slide down, leaving a trail of dust behind them. Liam appears at the top of the mount, and begins 
to slide down after the two.

EXT. - CAMP - DAY

Joanna leads Ryder, Ethan and Liam towards the camp. People in the camp begin to notice. A few run towards 
the returning friends. Emily gets up from reading a book. Danny, Terran, and Cullum all rise from the fire 
and make their way over.

Ryder and Ethan are greeted by the fellow survivors. Liam stays behind the crowd, trying not to gain attention. 
Terran gets to Ryder, lifting her in the air with a big hug.

TERRAN

Aha! There's our fearless hunters!

RYDER

(Laughing)

Let go of me!

Terran sets Ryder back down, as Cullum steps in.

CULLUM

But yet I see no winning trophies from the hunt.

ETHAN

It's barren out there.

Cullum turns to Terran.

CULLUM

(Mirroring previous conversation)

Backwards hick town.

Emily enters the group, looking at Liam.

EMILY

And who might this be?

Everyone turns towards Liam. He keeps his head down, but keeps his eyes focused on the group.

RYDER

This is Liam.

EMILY

Well look at that, another survivor.

The camp starts mumbling to themselves about the new survivor.

RYDER

Liam and I go way back actually.

TERRAN

Wait, you two actually know each other?

Ryder nods to Terran, who eyes Liam, not sure what to make of him. Emily strides around the group to Liam.

EMILY

Hello Liam. My name is Emily.

She holds out her hand. Liam hold out his hand, as they shake them.

LIAM

Nice to meet you.

EMILY

Come, join us. You must be hungry.

LIAM

(Holding back a little)

Oh. No thanks. I'm fine.

Emily looks Liam over, trying to read him.

EMILY

Well if you insist. But don't be afraid to help yourself.

CULLUM

(To Terran)

Not that we have much to help yourself to, to begin with.

Ryder punches Cullums arm as she walks by into the camp. Terran laughs as Cullum clutches his upper arm.

CULLUM

Gah!

TERRAN

(Watching Ryder)

Feisty isn't she?

CULLUM

(Sarcastically)

Feisty...brutal...same thing.

People start returning to the camp, going back to whatever they were doing before. Ethan turns back to Liam, 
who still stands off to the side.

ETHAN

C'mon. You look like you need to rest.

Liam is hesitant, before following Ethan into the middle of the camp.

Ext. - Camp - Night

Groups of survivors sit around small fires in the camp. Ryder, Ethan, Terran, Cullum, and Danny sit around a 
fire off to the side. Liam sits alone at a fire away from the rest. Emily gets up from the closest group, and 
sits with Liam.

EMILY

So Liam, you just going to sit by yourself this entire time?

LIAM

Yeah. I guess I'm just used to being alone. this is the first time I've been with people in a while.

EMILY

How long have you been out there?

LIAM

Three years. Ever since this began.

EMILY

Oh wow. I couldn't imagine being all alone out there.

LIAM

It's not so bad.

Liam looks towards the group where Ryder and Ethan are sitting.

EMILY

I guess you could call them the leaders of the group.

LIAM

Oh yeah?

EMILY

They've been making the big decisions mostly. Well, the entire camp does, but they really do lead us well. 
I wonder what they're talking about now?

LIAM

Probably about moving the camp. We ran into an infected on the other side of the woods.

EMILY

We would have been packed up by now. Come on, lets go see what the debate is.

Emily and Liam rise up and walk towards the other group.

DANNY

We can't just leave them!

CULLUM

We don't even know if they're alive! The food supplies are too low, and if the infected are getting 
closer, you know we can't risk the lives of everyone else in this camp.

ETHAN

But where are we going to go? The cars are barely working and we only have enough gas to get maybe 
fifty miles away.

RYDER

We'll then we'll get fifty miles away. We have to keep moving.

DANNY

If you all want to go, then go. But I'm staying to look.

RYDER

No. You can't. You're needed here.

TERRAN

Not to mention it would be suicide  going off on your own. It's impossible to make it alone out there.

Liam and Emily approach the group.

LIAM

Not entirely.

DANNY

If he could make it, then so could I.

CULLUM

Maybe, but what are you going to do if you find them all dead, or if you can even find them at all? What then?

Danny gets up in frustration.

DANNY

We can't just give up! Ethan you said it yourself, that this camp is in need of hope.

Danny storms off into the camp. Liam turns to Emily, puzzled.

EMILY

Three from our camp, including Danny's brother went missing while looking for supplies. We fear that they're gone.

CULLUM

Hey, new guy! Sit down, join the festivities.

Liam and Emily take a seat.

CULLUM

So tell us, how you've managed to survive three years on your own.

LIAM

There's not much to tell. I found myself alone after the outbreak, and just kept pushing on.

EMILY

Have you ever come across other groups of survivors.

LIAM

A couple times, but not many. None as big as this group.

TERRAN

Why didn't you stick around with them?

LIAM

Let's just say most other people out there are not as kind as you all are.

RYDER

Oh, we know that alright.

LIAM

Guess I'm not the only one who's ran into these kind of people.

ETHAN

There's another convoy of survivors, all military. They've been following us for a year, trying to take our supplies.

RYDER

They haven't gotten directly to us yet. Only the people who go out to find the supplies.

LIAM

Is that what happened to the people you're missing now?

TERRAN

Not likely. We haven't seen those bastards for over a month now.

Liam glances over to the lone fire pit, where Danny now sits, staring into the flames.

LIAM

Is that why you haven't left yet?

ETHAN

We usually wait two days for people to come back, other wise we leave, so that nothing can happen to anyone else.

LIAM

How long has it been?

ETHAN

A week.

LIAM

I don't understand. If it's safer to leave, then why not go?

ETHAN

This is the first time someone's gone missing, that wasn't found dead and robbed. There's so few of 
us now. And Danny's brother was one of the best  fighters we had against those things.

LIAM

Well, if you decide to go, I'll keep an eye out for them out there.

TERRAN

Wait...you're not staying?

LIAM

No. I'm leaving in the morning.

EMILY

Why? You should stay with us.


Untitled Screenplay - Pages 1-15

FADE IN:

INT. - room - Sunset

A television set is on the nightly news channel, in the middle of a broadcast. "BREAKING NEWS" 
covers the bottom of the screen. The NEWS ANCHOR, who is sitting at the desk rustles through papers 
as he reports the news.

News Anchor

We are now going into our fifth week of quarantine procedures set out by the Center for Disease 
Control. Officials in the White House and scientists have not specified exactly what is causing 
the effects that we've been seeing over the past month. The President has issued military task 
forces to set up perimeters around major cities in the country, and...

The News Anchor is cut off by a crew member, who hands him another sheet of paper. The News 
Anchor reads the paper, then looks at the camera.

NEWS ANCHOR

Uh, it appears that United States officials have lost contact with all European governments, 
along with Russia, China, Japan, and most of the African governments. The Prime Minster of 
Canada has started letting U.S. Citizens into Canada after passing a screening test. Meanwhile 
the President of Mexico shut the border, trying to prevent Mexico to falling to...

The News Anchor is cut off again by a crew member, handing him another sheet of paper.

NEWS ANCHOR

Ladies and gentlemen, I have just received word that we will be shutting down off the air. 
Local police have lost control at the Hospital in central...

A loud crash stops the News Reporter. Screams and the sound of people rushing away are heard, 
as the News Anchor stands up from the desk.

NEWS ANCHOR

Oh my god!

The News Anchor runs out of view of the camera. Everything off camera quiets down, til nothing 
is herd. A person slowly steps into the frame of the camera, with their head out of view. 
Blood runs down their arm, as the slowly shift across the screen.

BLACK OUT

ext. - Deserted Suburban Street - Day

There's complete cloud cover over an empty suburban street. the grass has grown tall in the
yards in front of the houses. A slight breeze blows dust across the pavement, and into the 
air. LIAM walks down the middle of the empty street, carrying a large bag on his back. He 
keeps his gaze ahead of his as he strides down the street. He walks past a house with a broken
fence. A decaying arm sticks out in view as he passes.

Liam stops in front of a large house in the middle of the street. Broken boards lie in front 
of the scratched door. A window on the second floor is wide open, with curtains billowing in 
the wind. Liam takes a deep breath and creeps towards the house. The wood creaks under his feet 
as he steps onto the front porch. Liam grasps the door knob, and turns the handle to find the door 
unlocked. The door swings open in front of Liam as he peers inside the house.

He steps inside the dark house. Furniture in the front hall is knocked over and broken. A red 
stain lies on the floor in front of him A trail of red runs into the room ahead, and around the 
corner. The other room next to Liam is still neat, but covered in dust.

Liam sets the large bag down. He pulls a flashlight from a pouch on his belt. With the light on, 
he slowly moves forward into the house.

The flashlight flickers. Liam knocks it against the palm of his hand, but the light goes out. 
He puts the light down and continues moving ahead. His hand steadily placed on top of a gun 
in a holster.

Liam steps around the corner where the red stain leads. The trail ends in a bigger blotched 
stain, with a decaying body on top of it. The head of the body is facing away from Liam. Liam 
lifts a scarf wrapped around his neck to cover his nose. He steps forward and kneels down at 
the body. Stretching out his had, Liam goes to turn the head of the body.

An infected grab's Liam's shirt by the back and shoulder and pulls him back. Liam thrashes his 
body as the infected drags him back into the hallway. His shirt rips, and Liam manages to pull 
away from the infected. Liam gets to his feet as the infected grabs him again, and pushes Liam 
into the wall. Liam pushes back on the infected's face, as it tries to bite at him. Liam reaches 
for the gun holster, to find no gun. He looks over to see it lying on the floor ten feet away. 
Liam lefts his leg to the infected's stomach and kicks it back into the other wall.

Liam turns to the gun, but trips over the infected's leg. He quickly crawls towards the gun, 
only to be pulled back by the infected. Liam forgets about the gun, and instead reaches for 
a small knife on his belt. He sits up and stabs the infected in the side of the head. It lets 
go and begins to seize on the floor. Liam pushed to the gun, aim's it at the infected and 
shoots it in the head. The infected stops seizing, and becomes still.

Liam sits back on the wall, breathing heavily. He get's up and walks towards the infected's 
body. He kicks it over to see the man's face, and reveals a framed photograph that it landed 
on. Liam picks up the photo, and wipes blood off with his torn shirt. The photo is of the same 
man, with a young girl. He pulls the photo out of the frame and rips the side with the man out. 
He pulls another folded photo out from his pocket and places it next to the ripped photo of the girl. 
Both photos are of the same girl.

Liam puts the photos in his pocket and walks back to the front door.

LIAM (V.O.)

It's been three years since everything changed. Three years since people started becoming 
those things. No one really knows what happened. The news reporters kept giving different 
stories on what was happening.

Liam steps out the door onto the front porch. He looks up at the cloudy sky. Out in the distance, 
thunder roars through over the empty street. A rain drop hit Liam's cheek. He turns back into the 
house and shuts the door behind him.

LIAM (V.O.)

Some people said it was terrorists. Others said it was our own government. Or just an accident at 
the Centers of Disease Control. But before anyone could could really pin where it all started, most 
people were dead. And most who died, came back. Not as themselves. It's like they became animals. 
Attacking people who were still alive.

Liam grabs the bag he dropped, and walks up the stairs. He walks into a bathroom, and sets the bag 
down. He replaces the batteries in the flashlight with new ones from his bag. With a towel he finds, 
he clears off the dirty mirror to see himself. He takes off his shirt to find a cut on his abdomen. 
Liam reaches into his bag and pulls out a large bottle of water, a bottle of anti-bacterial liquid, 
and box of large bandages. He clogs the sink, and pours some water into it. He cleans his cut, and 
bandages it up, then cleans blood off from the rest of him.

LIAM (V.O.)

And they learn like animals. They started off as slow moving, not being able to communicate. The only 
instinct they had was to attack and feed. Maybe feeding helps them learn more. The ones who feed more 
than others seem to be able to move faster, and even communicate with the rest.

Liam pulls another shirt from the bag and puts it on. He grabs his stuff and moves to a girl's bedroom. 
The window is wide open, with the curtain blowing out of it. Some things are knocked over, but the room 
is generally neat. The bed is unmade, there are no pillows and the blankets half on the floor towards 
the window. Liam looks out the window to see pillows at the base of the house. He gets back inside, 
and closes the window.

LIAM (V.O.)

But not everyone died. Some of us managed to survive, whether it was just luck or not. But you can't 
trust most people. Leave it to an apocalypse type situation to show the human race's true nature, 
self preservation.

Liam leaves the room, and shuts the door behind him. He walks down the hall to another bedroom. He 
drops his bag and closes the door behind him. Liam pushes a dresser in front of the door. He walks
over to the bed, pulls the sheets off of it. The mattress blows dust into the air, as Liam flips 
it off the bed frame and onto the floor. Reaching into his bag he sits on the mattress. He pulls 
out a can and opens it with a can opener. Liam pulls a fork out of his bag and begins to eat the 
food from the can.

LIAM (V.O.)

That's why is best to be alone, always on the move. You don't have to worry about others you're with. 
Whether they're going to try to kill you for your share of the food, or if they fall behind if to many 
of those things show up. But it's been months since I've seen anyone else out there. There's got to be 
someone. I can't be the only one.

Liam looks at the gun next to him.

LIAM (V.O.)

I don't know if I should wait for the world to find a way to go back to the way it was, or if I should 
just end my wait.

Liam tosses the fork into the can, and sets it down.

LIAM (V.O.)

Everywhere I go, supplies and food are more scarce. I don't think surviving this is an option anymore.

Thunder roars as the rain outside begins to fall harder. Liam grabs the bag. Using it as a pillow, he 
lays back on the flipped mattress. He gazes at the ceiling while listening to the rain, and slowly drifts to sleep.

Int. - Bedroom - Morning

A dog barking from outside jolts Liam awake. He instinctively reaches for the gun next to him as he 
sits up. Sitting completely still, he listens. The dog continues to bark. Liam crawls off of the mattress 
and moves toward the covered window. He lifts the dark curtain to the side slightly and peers out of the 
corner to the street. Outside a dog is  standing at the broken fence, barking. The dog is on a leash that 
caught onto the broken fence. Liam shifts his view towards down the street. In the distance an infected person 
is slowly shifting towards the dog.

Liam sits back, thinking to himself. The dog begins to whimper at the sight of the infected person.

LIAM

Damn it!

Liam gets up and shoves the dresser away from the door. With his gun at the ready, he creeps down the hall 
to the stairs. He keeps his back to the wall as he shifts down the stairs to the front door. Liam checks 
both sides of the street, only spotting the dog and the single infected person.

In a rush, he runs out across the street to the dog. The dog stops barking as Liam reaches for the leash. 
He unhooks the dog, and spins around. With the infected person closing in, Liam takes a knife out from his 
pocket. He rushes up to the sluggish infected, grabs it by the back of it's hair to pull it's head back, 
revealing it's neck. Liam slashes the knife across the infected neck. He jumps back as dark blood runs 
from the wound, and the infect falls to the pavement.

Liam stands back looking at the body. He glances around the neighborhood, making sure that the noise didn't 
attract more infected. He sets down the knife and gun and reaches towards the body.

He drags the body onto the lawn of the neighboring house, resting it's arms on it's chest. Liam reaches over 
and pulls a few flowery looking plants out of the ground, and places them onto the body.

LIAM

I know it's not much, but it's something.

Liam steps back up, and turns away. He grabs the gun and knife as he move towards the house he spent the 
night in. The dog follows Liam towards the house. He stops and turns to it.

LIAM

Stay.

Liam turns back to the house and continues forward. The dog continues to follow. He stops again and faces 
the dog.

LIAM

Look, I can't take you. I can barely feed myself half the time.

The dog sits, staring at Liam.

LIAM

Don't do that.

They continue to look at each other. Liam finally gives in.

LIAM

Fine. I can get you something to eat, but you need to stay here while I get my bag.

The dog grins. Liam smiles and turns back to the house.

He walks into the kitchen, searching the cabinets. Tossing aside boxes of old and expired food, 
he takes out the caned foods for himself. He opens another cabinet under the sink. A box of dog 
bones sits right in front of Liam. He takes the box out and puts it with the caned foods.

In the bedroom, Liam stuffs the cans into the bag. He gathers the rest of his belongings, putting 
the gun back into the holster strapped to his leg. With the box of dog bones in hand he walks out 
of the room.

Liam stops in the hallway as the dog cries from outside. He quickly runs down the stairs and out 
of the house. He halts on the front porch. The dog twitches on the pavement as an infected is 
tearing away at the dog, chewing on pieces of flesh, still covered in hair.

Liam drops the box in horror. The infected stops tearing at the dog and turns towards the noise. 
Seeing Liam, it screeches and starts speeding towards the house. Liam turns back into the house, 
slamming the door shut behind him. The infected starts bashing and scraping at the door, trying 
to break through. Liam takes the gun out and aims it at the door. The infected busts the door 
open and moves to go inside. Liam shoots. The bullet flies through the forehead of the infected. 
The infected flies back to the ground, and becomes still.

Liam drops down on his knees, covering his mouth as too keep himself from becoming sick. His foot 
accidentally kicks the body of the man he killed the day before. Liam turns back to face him. He 
thinks for a second, then pats at the body's pockets. He reaches in and pulls out a set of keys. 
Flipping through, he finds a key to a car. Liam pulls himself together and gets back up. He walks 
around the body of the infected and walks out of the house.

Grabbing the box of dog bones, he walks to the body of the dog. He pulls a bone out of the box 
and lies it next to the dog.

LIAM

I'm sorry bud.

He pats the top of the dog's head, then rises back up. With the key in hand, he walks to the car 
parked in the drive way. A large tree branch sits on the hood of the car. Liam pulls it off, and gets in the car. The car 
turns over twice before finally starting up. Liam pulls out of the drive way, and drives down the street, out of the neighborhood.

Ext. - Country Road - Day

Liam continues to drive along the empty roads. The sky is still overcast and dark. His bag sits 
on the passenger side seat. Liam plays with the radio. Only static comes out of the speakers.

LIAM

Oh what a surprise. Still no radio.

Liam shuts the radio off, and continues to focus on driving. He glances in the rear view mirror, 
and looks at the back seat of the car.

LIAM

Well now I can travel with a few more things with all this space.

The car begins to beep. Liam looks at the dashboard. The refuel symbol lights up, and the 
gas gauge is on empty.

LIAM

Unless I find gas.

Something crashing off the hood of the car gains Liam's attention to the road. The car skids 
to a stop as he slams on the breaks. He whips back to look behind him. A ragged looking child 
jumps out from a tree on the side of the road, and looks at the car. Liam gets out of the car.

LIAM

Hey!

The child stays still.

LIAM

Hey! Are you okay?

The child still doesn't move. Liam starts to walk forward.

LIAM

Are you alone?

A woman runs out from behind a tree, and into the car. Liam turns as she slams the door shut.

LIAM

Hey!

The woman drives the car in reverse. Liam jumps back avoiding the near impact of the car. 
The woman stops at the tree, as the child jumps into the backseat. Liam jumps up and pulls
 the gun out from the holster. The woman steps on the gas, driving back towards Liam. He 
fires the gun twice as the car passes. The bullets bounce off and the car speeds off ahead. 
Liam steps into the middle of the road as the car gets smaller, and out of view. He drops 
to the ground.

LIAM

(Screaming)

God damn it!

He looks down at the gun in his hand. The point of the gun slowly moves to face towards 
him. Liam sits on the pavement, contemplating what he should do. He tosses the gun across 
the pavement in frustration. Liam gets up and grabs his gun. He then walks forward down the road.

EXT. - Dirt Road - Night

Liam walks along the dark dirt road. He wraps his arms around his torso as he shivers. 
He squints his eyes, trying to see better in the dark. A screech echos in the distance. 
Liam looks all around him as he continues forward.

He stops as he sees a large, dark shape ahead. He rushes forward to find the car. The 
two drivers side doors wide open, and the woman and child missing. Blood covers the 
backseat door, and trails off the road into the thick bushes and trees.

Liam sits in the drivers seat. The keys still in the ignition. He reaches over to the 
passenger side. His bag, fallen off the seat, sits on the floor. Liam sighs in relief. 
Another screech echos in the distance. Liam shuts the door. He climbs into the back 
seat and shuts the door, locking all the doors after.

Liam pulls on the lever of the backseat, releasing it. With his bag, he climbs 
through to the trunk. Liam places the bag in front of the opening, covering most 
of the space. Reaching around, he finds a blanket. He unfolds the blanket, and 
curls up underneath it. In the dark of the trunk, Liam listens. Something bumps 
into the car. Liam keeps quiet. Something moves alongside of the car. Liam squints 
through the small gap of the seat and trunk. A hand slaps against the window, 
leaving a bloody hand print. The infected walks away into the dark of the night.

Int. - Car Trunk - Morning

Asleep in the backseat, sunlight shines through the gap, shining right in front 
of Liam's face.

A scraping noise softly fills the car, as the front door unlocks. Liam's eyes 
fly open at the sound. The car door opens. Liam reaches at for his gun, and 
pulls it out. ETHAN swings into the front seat, while RYDER stands out next to him.

Ethan

The keys are still in the ignition.

Ryder

Well then? What are you waiting for?

Ethan tries turning the car on, but nothing happens.

ETHAN

It must have run out of gas or something.

RYDER

It better just be gas. We need a car.

ETHAN

Well I'm no mechanic, so I don't know what to tell you.

RYDER

We'll come back with some gas, and get Danny to come look at it as well.

ETHAN

You want to drag him all the way out here?

RYDER

If he and everyone else wants a car that works, then yes.

Ethan steps out of the car. Liam, keeps the gun pointed at the gap.

RYDER

Wait, check the car for supplies. There might be something useful.

Ethan swings back into the car, searching the front of the car. He checks the 
glove box and finds nothing. He turns towards the back to see the bag. Without 
thinking, Ethan reaches back and pulls the bag away. Liam shoots forward to grab 
the bag. Coming into view, he point the gun at Ethan, who stops tugging at the bag.

LIAM

Not if you want to live.

Ethan lets go of the bag. Ryder stands on the other side of the backseat window, 
pointing a gun in at Liam.

RYDER

(Through the window)

I could say the same thing.

Liam turns and points the gun at the window. Still pointing her gun at Liam, 
Ryder reaches in through the front door to unlock the back door. She steps back 
and opens the back door.

RYDER

Come join us why don't you?

Ethan steps next to Ryder, with a hunting knife in hand. Liam crawls out from 
the trunk, and steps out of the car, with his bag in hand. Ryder and Ethan step back, 
guns still pointed at each other.

ETHAN

Who are you?

LIAM

Someone who's still alive.

RYDER

We'll see.

ETHAN

Ryder, stop. We don't want to kill other survivors.

LIAM

That's a first.

RYDER

Haven't had a great time with others I guessing?

LIAM

More or less.

Ryder smirks, and lifts her gun away.

RYDER

I guess there's no moral gain from killing you.

Ethan shrugs her aside and steps forward. Liam aims his gun at Ethan.

LIAM

And how do you know I won't kill you?

RYDER

Easy. You already would have. or at least tried.

ETHAN

Look, we don't want to hurt you or take your stuff.

LIAM

Then back away from the car.

ETHAN

It doesn't even work.

Liam sighs. He swings his bag over his shoulder and starts backing away, gun still 
pointed at the two.

LIAM

Then have fun fixing it.

Liam turns and starts walking away. Ryder rolls her eyes and walks over to the car. 
Ethan starts following Liam.

ETHAN

Hey! Wait!

LIAM

Sorry. Places to go, things to do.

RYDER

Ah. Another smart mouth.

Liam and Ethan continue to walk away.

ETHAN

Hold on a minute. You plan on just going off, out there alone?

LIAM

Yeah. Have been for the past three years. Why stop now?

Ethan catches up to Liam, and grabs his shoulder.

ETHAN

Please, wait. We could use your help.

LIAM

(Scoffing)

My help? From someone you don't know who also shoved a gun in your face?

RYDER

Who say's we don't know you?

Liam looks at Ryder, puzzled. She steps off the side of the car and walks towards him.

RYDER

You really don't remember me?

LIAM

Should I?

RYDER

(Laughing to herself)

We were only good friends in high school. Well, that is until you skipped town and was 
never herd from again.

Liam begins to recognize her.

LIAM

Ryder?

RYDER

The one and only.

LIAM

I...You...You look so different.

RYDER

Yeah. The world coming to an end does that to you. You however look the same...only, 
more pale.

LIAM

I blame the world ending.

RYDER

Yup. Still a wise ass.

Liam and Ryder embrace in a hug. Ethan stands off to the side, puzzled. He turns back to 
Liam, as he and Ryder separate.

ETHAN

So you two really know each other?

RYDER

(Sarcastically)

No dumbass, we're playing make believe.

LIAM

Listen, it's great to see you. And even better to see you alive, but I better get going.

Liam turns back to the road.

ETHAN

Wait! C'mon. Come with us.

RYDER

Ethan, he obviously wants to be alone. Let him go.

ETHAN

No one should be alone. Not in this world.

Liam stops and turns back.

LIAM

Look, it's nothing personal, but we'll all be better off if I just go.

ETHAN

Just for one night. Come back with us. We can help you with food and medical supplies. 
And everyone else needs to see there are others out there. They're starting to lose hope.

LIAM

Others?

RYDER

About fifteen of us. We have a camp on the other side of the forest.

ETHAN

It's obvious that you need some help. And a place to rest for the night. And in the morning
 if you want to go, then we can at least let you know a good direction to go in.

LIAM

Or you could just tell me now.

Ethan turns to Ryder for help.

RYDER

He's right Liam. You do look like you need help, and everyone back at the camp needs a bit 
of hope. We've been taking heavy losses, especially in the past few months.

Liam thinks for a minute.

LIAM

Okay. Fine. But I won't be staying long.

RYDER

No one's stopping you.

Liam walks back up to Ethan and Ryder. Ryder leads Ethan and Liam towards the woods, as they 
set off back to the camp.

Untitled Poem

The streets drown under the fallen tears.

The sky, the eyes of the world, flood what lies underneath.

And my throbbing heart beats, while the city lights fall asleep.

Like a disease, visions of his face eats away at my body.

The cannibalistic act ravages away.

Tears run down the buildings that tower above the others.

My blood runs thin in the flood.

Circling the drains.

Tainting the tears.

Dear God, rip this heart away from me.

It belongs to one who doesn’t want it.

Love has broken me,

no,

he has broken me.

So take it away.

Keep it for me.

And I’ll leap to your arms.

I’ll fall with the tears,

that will wash away this mess.

My hour glass drops the last grain of sand,

as I imprint the flooded streets.

And I send all of my love to you.
