After trying to figure out what is going on the two spend the evening together talking. Meanwhile they are both remembering things from their pasts but finding comfort in each other.

ROCKET FUEL

The story follows Paul, a cocky and drug-crazed lunatic and his timid associate Geoffrey as they arrive at the parking lot of a drug deal. Cocaine is the primary currency, or so they thought, as they make their way inside. The two are greeted with a calm hostility as Paul’s drug addiction takes hold, impairing his better judgement. Paul is left incapacitated after ingesting a substance he thought was cocaine. Geoffrey takes a savage beating and the two are left high and dry, having gained nothing. Geoffrey learns a profound lesson about outward appearances and the arrogance of manhood, while Paul fails to see the error in his ways.

TWO WAYS DOWN

A young man ready to take the plunge off of a building finds himself stuck in an elevator that isn’t all that it seems. Chris, a depressed and suicidal young man enters an elevator to take it to the top floor and jump. As the doors close, Chris has entered a memory and in walks in Jamie, a frantic young woman late for a meeting and blabbing on her phone. The unlikely pair spark a natural connection as they are forced to communicate when the elevator breaks down, and help seems far away. However, as they continue to get to know one another, a history between them starts to bubble into their little world.
