INT. ANDZIA'S PARENT'S APARTMENT - DAY

HERSHL
I'll be leaving for Bruxelles in a
couple of days. My father acquired a
millinery shop, when he and his wife
moved to Belgium, and he promises to
teach me the trade and arrange for
us to be settled there.

HANELE
You trust him after all he's done to
you and your brother?

HERSHL
I haven't much of a choice do I? We
have to do something for our future.
There's not much hope for us here in
Poland.

HANELE
I'm afraid...we can manage here too.
You don't really believe things will
work out for the better in Belgium,
do you?

HERSHL
Perhaps not, but we must take the
chance.

INT. TAXI ON THE WAY TO THE RAILROAD STATION - DAY

Hershl and Hanele are sitting close together holding one
another in the back of the taxi. Hanele's eyes are moist and
brimming with tears. She's trying to hold them back so as to
keep Hershl from breaking down. Hershl too is drenched in
tears as he tries to console her.

EXT.RAILROAD STATION, TRAIN PLATFORM - DAY

Hershl puts his arm around Hanele and kisses her before
boarding. She clings to him and begins to sob.

HANELE
Please, don't go. I can't bear to
see you go...I love you.

HERSHL
Oh, God I don't want to. But you
know I have to. It will all work
out. You'll see.
(beat)
It's because I love you that I'm
doing this.

When the train begins to move, Hershl tears himself away and
boards. Hanele runs alongside, crying and calling out his
name. Her voice keeps echoing in Hershl's ears as he rides
away.

PDF software blows. Below is a page from "Neon Angels." If interested, my email is l_fabry[at]hotmail.com

EL APACHE
Whatís it like being into other girls? Not asking to be a dick.

PALOMA
Whatís being a dick like?

EL APACHE
Ha ha...

SANDRA
It was like I got the answer before I asked when I met her.

EL APACHE
If thatís your first girlfriend, you can do better.

PALOMA
Pendejo.

EL APACHE
Whatís so wrong with men?

PALOMA
In a word? Testicles.

EL APACHE
Really?

PALOMA
Do you like them?

EL APACHE
No! Arenít women programmed to?

PALOMA
I get why the penis has to be on the outside, but I swear only a man would have both the literal and metaphorical balls to wear them on the outside and think we like them.

EL APACHE
Theyíre that bad?

PALOMA
Reminds me of the time I put a pair of kiwis in the fridge and didnít remember them until weeks later. They even still had the hair.
