"Out of Body"

INT. BASEMENT - DAY 

A dark musty basement. Harsh lights reveal DAMIEN, a drug 

addicted young man. 

Scattered on a table before him sits bottles of alcohol, 

cocaine, and other drug paraphernalia. 

He snorts a line of cocaine. Ecstasy washes over his faces. 

CLOSE ON SHOT GLASS 

Liquid fills the glass. 

CLOSE ON DAMIEN'S FACE 

Damien pounds it. His eyes blood red. Wipes his white 

powdered nose. Then exits. 

EXT. SIDEWALK - DAY 

Damien walks out of a modest home. Book bag slung over his 

shoulder. 

CAR POV 

We see Damien walk down a sidewalk. Alone. 

BACK TO SCENE 

A BLACK vehicle pulls to his side. 

Damien stops. 

DAMIEN POV 

Window rolls down. A MAN jaws at him. 

BACK TO DAMIEN 

He throws his hands up as if he doesn't have what they want. 

Three THUGS jump out. One holds a gun. 

These men proceed to PUNCH and KICK him. Damien's head 

pressed against a chained linked fence. 

They take his wallet. 

POP! POP! 

Gun goes off. Two bullets enter Damien's back. 

 
 

"By His Stripes"

FADE IN: 

EXT. GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE - NIGHT 

The moon shines brightly. 

Garden filled with fog. 

A bewildered JESUS stands against a tree. He speaks 

inaudible. 

He grasps the tree for comfort. 

Jesus walks to a nearby fire. 

PETER, JAMES, and JOHN sleep soundly around a small fire. 

JESUS 

Could you not pray one hour with 

me? 

Peter suddenly awakens. James and John follow. 

PETER 

My Lord, what is wrong? 

JESUS 

Immense grief fills my soul...Come, 

come and watch. 

CENTER OF GARDEN 

A moon bathed Jesus kneels down slowly. Arms spread wide. 

His disciples watch in confusion. 

JESUS (CONT’D) 

Abba!...Father!...All things are 

possible with you... If it be 

possible, let this cup of suffering 

pass from me.....but not my will, 

but yours father. 

His face fills with bloody sweat. 

JESUS (CONT’D) 

You are my refuge and strength. 

He gasps for air. 

Jesus falls onto his face. He grabs fists of the ground. 

Mutters under his breath.
