INT. CLASSROOM -
FLOOR POV: A gothic rocker type, TRISTIAN, beautiful, yet
disturbed, forces energy
from his finger tips into his head,
his long red hair dangles down into the camera.
I can't take this ANYMORE!
Why'd she do this to me?! If only I
could do things over...
SNOOZE, dark hair,
good looking athletic type, sits next to
Tristian with his head down on the desk sleeping.
The teacher, MR. JORDANELLO, long dark hair, chiseled face,
approaches Tristian, placing his hand on his
Tristian, is everything okay?
Snooze jumps up.
I'm fine. I'm fine, just tired.
The class laughs. No answer from Tristian as his anger grows
(feeling the tension)
Excuse me, Mr. Killjoy, you're
my class. If you need a moment to
yourself, please step
Tristian looks up with the look of death in his eyes,
clenches his hair.
Tristian's POV: Mr. Jordanello transforms into an alien-type
creature, hops up on the desk. The class forms
laughing in Tristian's face.
MR. JORDANELLO (CONT'D)
Bzzz...it's all in your head.
It's all in your head. It's all in your
Tristian screams, "Noooooo...", blinking trying to shake what
he sees. Mr. Jordanello stares down
at the poor soul as the
class is back to normal.
Do you want to go to the clinic?
He jumps out of his seat and runs out of the room
Mr. Jordanello turns back around, walks up to the board.
MR. JORDANELLO (CONT'D)
Sorry for the interruption, class. So as
was saying, this is your home room and
you will report here every morning before
your first class.
Title: "All In Your Head"
EXT. PEACE GARDEN - MOMENTS LATER
The peaceful ambiance radiates from this sacred
A student, dressed a slice above average, your 2002 hippie,
swaying to the melodies within her mind. Arms methodically
creating beauty with a touch of
her finger tips.
As we take in the moment, Tristian enters swiftly, quietly.
God's beauty manifest before his eyes, making him
forget his own dark dwellings for a moment.
At the peak of Tristian's fantasy, KASEY turns around
noticing him standing there for the first time.
Tristian jumps out of
his mind's eye.
You scared me. I didn't see
Hello, anybody home?
Tristian's eyes locked on her's as tears swell.
(holding out her hand)
Why are you crying?
Tristian instantly wipes his tears.
Sorry, I didn't
realize I was crying.
You made me forget about my problems
a moment. Nobody's ever done that
before. What's your name?
(shaking her hand)
Well Kasey, I'm Tristian. Nice to meet
Music fades in as their hand shake extends beyond normal
time. Their eyes locked, as they smile contagiously.
DAISY, Kasey's sidekick, strolls in raising her eyebrow.
What's going on?
Kasey lets go of Tristian's hand, does a little dance around
Hi Sweetie...this is Tristian.
Dropping her head, Daisy answers.
Yeah I know.
Kasey turns to Tristian.
I didn't know you knew my
best friend in
the whole world.
Smiling at Daisy.
I didn't say he knew me. I, I've seen
you around before.
Tristian extends his hand.
Well, it's nice to meet
you Daisy whose
seen me around before.
Isn't he great?
Daisy grabs her hand and pulls her away.
Time to go.
See you around.
As she says good-bye with a girly wave, Tristian returns the
same wave. He realizes what he is doing and snaps himself
out of it.
INT. HALLWAY - SAME MOMENT
Students shuffle through as we come across three unusual
people, SERVE, ATILLA and G.
All three, dressed in their best attire, emerge from their
silhouette, striding towards us in unison. Appropriate music
Students back away lining themselves against the walls,
allowing them to pass. However, today is the day
to face their head bowers.
They stop walking and turn around at the end of

deserve. I am Serve, and my role while
still in high school is to serve. If you
all remember that, you will do well.
Gesturing to Atilla.
Atilla, a bit shorter than the two, steps forward.
My name as you all know is Atilla. And
from now on things will be different
around here. We will teach others how to
love peacefully. With these words of
wisdom, I give you G.
I'm G. You all know what it stands
G strikes a pose.
(gesturing to students)
You may go. We'll see you in class.
Music fades in. Among the students, EMMANUEL, dressed in a
blazer and slacks, turns to
his friend, SILO, a sci-fi action
girl, wearing a long white doctor's coat and space goggles.
Hey Silo, what does G stand for?
Everyone calls him god.
When he was a little tiny tot in Yonkers,
N.Y., where he was born,
he ran across
the street as his mother screamed for his
front car tire hit him, bouncing him
back onto the street. He just got up and
So what does that have to do with god?
He claims he heard the voice of god at
that moment, and when he
asked this voice
who he was, the voice responded...G.
No way. Is that true?
A punk rocker type over hears their conversation
He continues walking.
That's what he says.
What's the story on Serve and Atilla?
Serve was held back five times. So it
became a running joke among the students
that in order for him to beat the system,
he has to serve the system.
That's how he got his nick-name.
How do you know so much?
Look at me, I'm a pack rat for
information. My brain is a computer.

Taking Emmanuel by surprise.
I can recall
every moment in my life,
even in the womb.
Emmanuel cracks up. The bell rings
realizing they are the
only people in the hall, he looks down at his schedule.
Shoot, we're late for class. Com'on,
I'll tell you about
What class do you have?
She looks over at his schedule and reads his fourth period
Advanced Physics, my favorite.
They hurry off to their last class.
INT. CLASSROOM - MOMENTS LATER
Mr. Jordanello is conducting an experiment, holding
explaining their assignment.
The class moans. One student cries out.
This stinks. Homework on the first day
Welcome to the big leagues, Advanced
Physics. You will
create a home for your
egg. And as all homes do, they protect
the bad people and gives you a
place to live.
The class laughs. Silo and Emmanuel
bust into class.
I'm sorry Mr. Jordanello. We were
talking and lost track of time.
Time is very valuable. To waste even a
minute of time could result in loosing
your window of opportunity.

both of you see me after class.

MR. JORDANELLO (CONT'D)
After you create the new home for your
baby egg, then you will make wings for it
and drop it from three stories high.
Love it, then kill it?
No, love it and let it fly. If it
returns to you unharmed, then you loved
The bell rings. Students get out of there seats, scurry
Raising his hand at the exit, Mr. Jordanello stops Emmanuel
MR. JORDANELLO (CONT'D)
Wait a second you two. Advanced Physics

I am not done. I expect you
to be in
your seat tomorrow and everyday by the
time that bell rings.
If not you will face the consequences of
security. Do you understand
SILO AND EMMANUEL
Good, see you tomorrow.
At the door, Tristian stands waiting for
them to pass by,
closing the door behind him.
MR. JORDANELLO (CONT'D)
Hey Tristian, what's up?
Tristian takes a seat on top of the table as Mr. Jordanello
wipes the board clean.
I don't know
how to say this, but it
happened again today during homeroom.
Sometimes when I look at you, you
trans...I don't know, you look weird.
If I have a puzzled look on my face, it's
I am trying to understand.
It's not like that.
What's it like?
Um...after I ran out of your class, I
went to the peace garden, just to
meditate for a little bit. And I met
this most beautiful girl that I have ever
seen. I had never seen her before today.
Is she a student?
Sometimes in life we get so caught up in
our own worlds,
we forget to take a look
at what other people are doing. Does
make sense to you?
Yeah, this girl, Kasey, that's
made me forget about my problems at the
just say if there was
ever a moment in my life that I needed
to be there for me, it was then.
Mr. Jordanello listens, takes a seat next to him.
God is very good.
How can you believe that and teach
science at the same time? Has it not
always been evolution vs. the big bang
The big bang theory?
that God, "BANG", created light.
Mr. Jordanello jumps then laughs.
That's time for another discussion. I
have to go. You'll
be fine, just keep
your head up.
See you later Mr. J.
Tristian leaves. Mr. Jordanello waves, grabs his bag and
the door, turns off the lights and exits.
EXT. SCHOOL - MOMENTS LATER
The school grounds look empty as Kasey runs over to Tristian.
Hey good lookin.
You always do that to me.
Cheer me up. Thank you.
Let's go get some ice cream.
She grabs his hand and pulls him along trying
to skip. As
they walk away, you hear them.
What are you doing?
Skipping, come on it's fun.
He gives in as they skip their way into the distance.
INT. MEN'S BATHROOM - NEXT DAY
Guys are lined up at the urinals. Among them

grinning ear to ear.
Feels much better.
He washes his hands and from the corner of his eye,
He shakes off his hands and walks over to him with a sense of

Snooze slowly opens his eyes.

What do you mean someone?
This girl Kasey. I don't know her last

She's so cool.

hands which reads
I will be popular
She downs the potion. The camera encircles her closing in on

the sound of thunder, Silo appears in black
leather looking cooler than ice. She smiles at her creation.
Cool, it worked.
She strolls over to the door, opens it and gestures for
bouncer to let them in. People stroll past onto the dance
floor. Tristian and Snooze

Hey Tiger, I love your club.

What are you crazy? And where'd you get

Snooze stands up.
Thank God. That was the creepiest
feeling I have ever felt. If someone
didn't stop it, the mood in this
would have gone down. Don't you get it,
love conquers the beast.
Everyone and everything STOPS. They all look at Snooze in

Mango gestures back.
One love potion coming up.
He bends down under the counter almost bumping his head on a
tap protruding out. He pans all the taps.

In the distance, Mango eyes the monitor seeing his favorite

He approaches Daisy standing in the corner. The walls are

Hello beautiful. Your scent is that of a
rose during a warm spring dew filled day.
She walks away from him after giving him a dirty look.
Was it something I said?
He locks eyes with Atilla from across the
room. She smiles
at his rejection. He gestures to her as if she wants him and
on over to her. G and Serve stand in front of her
as if they were protecting her from him.
Don't worry. We won't let him touch you.
Yeah, we will protect you.
Mokjon approaches the three of them.
Emmanuel is still in the background working his groove as
others finally move in around him.
(to Serve and G)
I would like to speak to the lady.
Well, you see...Atilla here doesn't want
to talk to you.
That's right. We make sure NOTHING

work your charm on
Why not let the lady speak for herself?
Is this not Ameri'ca?
It is Ameri'ca and when in Ameri'ca, you
do as Ameri'cans say.
And we say no talk

Atilla finally pushes them to the side and drags
down Mokjon's face as he enjoys this eternal bliss.
So what does a nice little foreign boy
like yourself have to say to a goddess
Catching Mokjon off guard, he gains his composure.
I am Mokjon Lover boy Akme'd. But you can
call me WhoBoo.
