A Day in A Life – Short Film by Duke – GH5 – Drama


Then stop ignoring me when I talk about
something this serious. I’m trying to get us out of this mess okay? I’m listening. No, you’re not listening you keep rolling your eyes at me like I’m speaking some kind of alien language or something What the hell is that? I told you how many
times I don’t trust this dude. I know. Then why do you keep fighting with me
I’m not fighting yes you are I’m not fighting. Yes you are Give me that. Just let me do what I do I
know what the fuck I’m doing. I wasn’t trying to start a fight Lenny. I was just
asking a question. don’t ask me any questions I don’t like
it neither would you if you knew what you were doing and someone kept asking you
what the hell you’re doing. There are too expensive. I need
to find someone else but I don’t want to think about it I need to find a better
lawyer thanks for not messing up the house too much. Or did you have a bunch of parties that you cleaned up? Is it a party or no party?
no party this chick in No party. This chick in jail told me about her lawyer what do
you think should I take it? No party. Come on, you’re not listening are you?
Stop looking at Instagram I’m telling you about this mexican chick in jail who
told me about her lawyer Maybe it’s scam I’m not sure. Do you mind? My feet are killing me.
Those floors in jail are the worst all concrete and there is no pillows. Nothing. Almost done. You’re not paying attention. Look I just
spent a night in jail I may go to prison up to six months and you’re being way
too evasive and cold I don’t like it. [off screen] You know what they say the universe is expanding. But what if it’s not? What if it’s breathing? What of everything we’re observing is just one giant exhale and what if
everything we think we know isn’t really what we know maybe we were wrong. But we don’t know that. see for example genetics the scientific
study of genes and heredity. Now if we’re inheriting those genes whether it be the
ability to obtain knowledge or limiting and confining our scope to our
instincts then we don’t really know our potential Why are you thinking about this so much? I like to expand my mind think outside the box. Shouldn’t you be worrying about your personal life instead of thinking about all this? Can you stop bringing that up I’m working on it. [of screen] Are you voting in the election? What? Are you voting in the election?
Sorry I’m not really in the mood to talk right now It’s just such a long drive I thought you
might want to talk to make it go faster I didn’t want to offend you.
No, it’s okay I was just not expecting to drive all the way to Ventura County I was
trying to make it home before 5:00. You didn’t know?
No we don’t get that information until the passenger gets in the car Well, that sucks.
Yeah I know Well, do you want me to get out?
No it’s okay. okay I don’t want to get convenience you. Did I thank you for bailing me out? Yeah.
Do I treat you badly? Sometimes. Oh really? that wasn’t the answer I expected well
I’m sorry I have trust issues I get emotional you know that I know it gets
me in trouble but what can I do I’m an emotional woman oh right there yes My dog is dying. Your dog dying? Yeah he had
cancer for six months and I thought he was gonna survive but it doesn’t look
like that he will that’s all I was trying to make it home and be with him
but I need the money for the vet bills that’s why I’ve been working extra hours
and I’m sorry I shouldn’t be involved with this situation. [chuckles]. That’s one thing I
hate about these pistachios the damn shelves. Such a mess. It’s all I ask is one thing that’s it. I don’t want to do it. Mia, I can’t do this. Only you could do
