The Prisoner of Time

INT. PRISON CELL - DAY

Light breaks through the window in a cell over the face of MAX CUBE causing him to break out of a trance. MAX is sitting in a lotus position in the middle of the cell; it is dark and musty. MAX's hair is long and his face has a growth of a beard.

MAX stands and stretches. He goes to the sink and splashes some water on his face. He reaches up and grabs a razor, holding it in his hands and glancing long and hard into the mirror. A smile cracks his face.

INT. PRISON BLOCK WALKWAY - DAY

TWO PRISON GUARDS walk down a cell block.

VETERAN GUARD:
Well kid, today is your first day on the job and you get to meet our very own celebrity on his way out.

ROOKIE GUARD:
A celebrity?

VETERAN GUARD:
The great Max Cube.

ROOKIE GUARD:
You mean Max Cube is here?

VETERAN:
Well for the next 33 minutes he is.

INT. PRISON CELL - WALL
A hand tears down a picture of MAX standing next to the Great Wall of China with a can of spray-paint in his hands.

INT. BLOCK - DAY

VETERAN GUARD
The man is considered a legend and a myth. He's been here so long that the world has forgotten all about him. You know the day he arrived there were hundreds of reporters standing out there; heck, he even had his own fan club that stood outside and waited to catch a glimpse of him.

INT. PRISON CELL - WALL
A hand takes down a picture of MAX standing on the ledge of the Grand Canyon. He is holding a pop can over the ledge ready to drop it while looking at the camera.

INT. BLOCK - DAY

ROOKIE GUARD
You mean the shanty just on the other side of the road? They are his fans?

VETERAN GUARD
They be the ones.

The two GUARDS approach MAX's cell. MAX, with his back turned, is dressed in a nice light blue shirt and funky black tie. He turns as he hears the key slide into the lock and the tumblers inside working.

VETERAN GUARD
Well Max, it's time to get that smoke you always wanted.

MAX:
It's been hell.
