Easy Problem
by
Lukáš Horák & Andrew Thompson

INT. DAY AT A CAFé TABLE
 
A young man and a woman are sitting a table in a café, near
a window, so we can see what looks like a college campus
oustide, swarms of students walking by. The woman is called
Liz and is drinking coffee, watching Sam scribbling on a
piece of paper.
 
LIZ
You can't just let people walk all
over you like that.
 
SAM
(scribbling)
I'm not letting people walk over
me.
 
LIZ
You should have published
 
SAM
(putting the pen down,
annoyed)
Nobody would read it, Liz.
 
LIZ
I read it. It's good. Maybe
unfocused a bit.
 
SAM
You're not in the commitee. His
fucking friends are.
 
LIZ
Doesn't mean you shouldn't get any
credit at all.
 
 
Sam picks up the pen again.
 
SAM
I don't care.
 
LIZ
Yeah, but now he gets to act like
it's his own work.
 
Sam ignores Liz for a while, then turning his scribblings
to her. It looks mostly like sharp wavy lines with numbers
and works like "theta" state written over them.
 
SAM
Fuck him and fuck working with
epileptics. This is the new thing.

LIZ
(not looking at the
paper)
What's wrong with working with
epileptics?
SAM
No offense, Liz, but you're
wasting time.
LIZ
I'm trying to help people
SAM
That's great, you know I think
that. But you're getting no real
results. It's like counting
flashes in a storm or something.
LIZ
(turning her eyes to the
paper)
Sleep?
SAM
It's rhytmical. You can get a
feedback loop going and lock it,
get a clear picture.
LIZ
You would fry someone's brain, you
realize that?
SAM
I'm not talking ethics right now,
I just wanna know your honest
opinion.
LIZ
I think it's creepy.

 
Sam goes stone faced, folding up the paper and putting it
into his pocket, not looking at Liz.
 
LIZ (CONT'D)
You're gonna scream?
 
SAM
No.
 
LIZ
Because other people would see it?

3.

 

SAM
I'm not crazy.
LIZ
Not all the time, no.

 
Long silence
 
 

SAM
You wanna say something?
LIZ
I want to go.

 
Sam picks up his bag
 
LIZ (CONT'D)
Alone.
 
SAM
You want me to tell you I'm sorry?
I thought you said you don't
believe that.
 
LIZ
I don't want to hear anything.
 
Liz stands up and walks away. Sam is watching her walk out
of the Café, the normal sounds is slowly replaced by a
staticy sounding hum. As the doors close, the scene fades
to black, with wavy lines morphing into the title.
