INT. BEDROOM - MORNING
Three girls lie asleep in bed together, somewhat entwined.
SHOSHANA (19) stirs and wakes. She looks over at BRIANA (18)
and RACHEL (20), both still asleep.
Shoshana sits up, gathering herself while adjusting to the
day. She looks over at a side table, covered with empty beer
bottles and wine glasses.
She slowly climbs over Briana and off the bed. She starts
for the bathroom and trips on something. She almost falls.
SHOSHANA
What the f...?
She looks to the floor to see a young HIPSTER guy (24), lying
there. He looks serene. Almost like he’s glowing. She did
not wake him.
She continues into the bathroom.
INT. BATHROOM - CONTINUOUS
Not closing the door behind her, Shoshana sits on the toilet
and pees, while curiously watching the young man sleep. He
has a heavy beard and lean, long arms.
The sound of her tinkling in the toilet carries over her POV
of the man’s olive skin, his lips, his eyes that do not open.
Not yet.
INT. BEDROOM - MOMENTS LATER
UNDER BLACK:
Rach.

SHOSHANA (V.O.)
Briana. Wake up.

The BLACK opens like a pair of eyes, revealing Shoshana
hovering over the girls, up on her knees in between them.
SHOSHANA
Come on. Wake up. We’ve got a
situation.
Briana looks up at Shoshana.
BRIANA
What kind of situation?

INT. BEDROOM - MOMENTS LATER
All three girls stand over the bearded man, looking down at
him.
RACHEL
He’s kinda’ beautiful.
SHOSHANA
Did we invite him here?
BRIANA
I don’t remember that.
SHOSHANA
Was he here when we got back?
BRIANA
Why would he have been here?
SHOSHANA
Do any of us remember anything
about this guy? Do you remember
him from the party? Or the club?
All three consider this.
No.

Briana barely shakes her head.

BRIANA

Nope.

RACHEL

SHOSHANA (CONT’D)
Me neither.
RACHEL
He’s Jesus.
What?

BRIANA

Rachel looks adoringly at the man.
RACHEL
He’s Jesus. I’ve been saving
myself for him, and now he’s come
because he knows how hard it is to
wait. He knows that my devotion is
true.
SHOSHANA
What just fell out of your hole?
BRIANA
Wait...you’re a virgin?

SHOSHANA
You’re a Christian?
RACHEL
No, I’m Jewish. But Jesus
Jew. He’s the super Jew.

SHOSHANA
So, wait a minute...you think that
God would send his son, Jesus
actual Christ, one third of the
Trinity, here, for you, because
you’ve been saving yourself for
him? That’s cracked.
BRIANA
I don’t like that God chose you.
What?!

SHOSHANA

BRIANA
Why would he show favor on you?
Why not me? What have you done to
earn God’s love? Anyway, your
mouth isn’t a virgin.
RACHEL
Oh, you fucking bitch!
Rachel lunges at Briana and grapples her down to the floor.
BRIANA
Oh, that’s nice talk in front of
Jesus!
Briana hauls off and slugs her. As the two girls fight,
Shoshana gets down on the floor and lays down next to the
hipster. She gently strokes his face.
SHOSHANA
Why do you...feel so good?
He opens his eyes and turns to her.
HIPSTER
Because I am the truth.

SHOSHANA
Are you here for Rachel?
