Avi.– INT. COACH / BUS. AFTERNOON. A large empty bus, all dull beige seats and wood veneer, makes its way along a stretch of motorway. INT. COACH / MOTORWAY. At the back of the coach we see a lone passenger with a (samsonite) bag next to him. His eyes closed, head drooped. Suddenly he raises a hand and rubs the bridge of his nose. It’s no use, AVI, 25, can’t sleep. He pulls up a set of head phones, puts them on, and presses play on his MP3. INT. COACH. Long shot from the front of the coach, the driver’s ruff face to the left, empty seats filtering away from camera, AVI’s head peaking above a back seat. We hear the music from his MP3 begin to play.

AVI stares out of the window. The music still playing on his MP3. The coach makes a sharp left turn, the camera just catching a glimpse of the sign: (destination) Avi walks out (cam follows) walks one and a half blocks and enters a medical store says hi to the store lady and proceeds to the back door to the go down meets Boris. Avi. Hey B how you doin this morning ?? Boris. Like shit .. my delivery broke down on the border .. and I got to give out a supply this evening.. and customers are a bitch when it comes to timing’s..

Avi. Ask them to wait a while .. how much could it be ? are we talking big numbers ? Boris nods.(to confirm) Boris . Well I guess all good things must wait

Avi walks to the cold storage and opens the lock and drops a bag with a brown paper in a compartment under the cold storage unit and covers it with a false surface, behind the counter of a medical store.


AVI. Hey B why didn’t you come to the bridge party last Saturday? I’m sure some of these goods will fetch you some pussy.. (Smirks)

BORIS. I just don’t wanna b compromised when you get busted on a kids 13th birthday .. (Laughs)

AVI. Well you will have to stick around to find out. Avi locks the cold storage and puts the key in a box (which will be hidden from view) AVI. alright B I’m off for duty.. Avi leaves the store with a big box, walks outside, stops suddenly and looks for something (keys) in his pockets and goes back inside.

CUT TO .A6 INT. OUTSIDE THE MEDICAL STORE-evening/night Cop ducks to the shadows thinking he has been seen. Bobs his head up slowly ...and sees a man walking out of the store and he takes a photograph. Writes down the time of leaving the store 19:58 hours. COPS NARRATION BEGINS .. Cop(n): If this kid here thinks he can slip my watch?? he’s got another thing coming. There’s a difference between having a scene and getting caught and I like to be the thin line in between. Other’s don’t even give them a chance and then where does it all go? A life spent behind the shit locker. It’s better this way. It keeps people like me floating. So what if it takes a little contribution from our friend here. Fade to black.

Avi comes back out of the store with the box . Walks a couple of blocks and the cop drives up to him. Passes by Avi and drives ahead. Avi calls for a taxi Cut to Avi’s home. Opens the door . turns on the lights and goes straight to the lab(backroom)drops the box on the table and heads to the kitchen and to the fridge. Opens it (has a lot of food) drink some juice


Turns and goes to the back room (lab). Opens the box and pours the cough syrup and starts making meth (boiling it). His phone rings .. Avi: yeah.. who is this ? Person: ya this is a man looking for some ice..? you got any? Avi: alright .. where? Cop (in incognito): the bridge 11:30.. Avi: alright then Avi Hangs up.. Goes to the other wall of the room and opens a cupboard in it a safe. Takes out a black bag and checks to see if it is all there. Shuts it .. The door shuts with a man going outside.
