A journey to freedom, where prejudice and adventure collide.
Watch the original version of Easy Rider
The roaring sound of an engine fills the air as Wyatt and Billy ride their choppers down the dusty roads of America’s heartland. With their long hair, leather jackets, and love for drugs, the two friends are on a mission to sell their supply of cocaine and make enough money to live freely.
As they ride into the sunset, leaving behind the bright lights of Los Angeles, they are unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. They encounter small towns where people stare at them with suspicion, and they are treated as outcasts for their unconventional lifestyles. But Wyatt and Billy ignore the stares, determined to make it to their destination: New Orleans.
The journey is not only a physical one but a spiritual one too, as they question the meaning of freedom and the price they pay for it. As they ride deeper into the heartland of America, they encounter people who challenge their beliefs, and they have to confront their own prejudices, leading to unexpected twists and turns along the way.
Chapter 1: On the Road
Wyatt and Billy set out on their journey on a hot summer day, with the sun beating down hard on their backs. They ride past large billboards advertising the latest cars and soft drinks, ignoring the consumerist culture around them, and instead focusing on the open road ahead.
After a few hours of riding, they stop in a small town diner to grab a bite to eat. As they enter the diner, everyone stares at them with suspicion, their long hair and unconventional clothing making them stand out like sore thumbs. But they shrug it off and sit down at the counter, ordering a cup of coffee and a burger.
As they eat, they strike up a conversation with the waitress, who tells them about the town’s history and its people. They learn about the hardships faced by farmers in the area and the struggles of the town’s youth to find jobs.
Feeling empathetic towards the people of the town, Wyatt and Billy decide to spread some joy and decide to perform a song for everyone at the diner. They walk out to their bikes and pull out their guitars, playing a rendition of “Born to be Wild.” The diner erupts in applause, and the two friends feel a sense of belonging.
But their sense of belonging is short-lived, as they continue their journey and encounter more small towns where they are met with hostility and judgment. They start to question whether their quest for freedom is worth it, as they experience the cost of being different in a conformist society.
As they ride into the sunset, they feel a sense of liberation and a spirit of adventure. But they are also acutely aware that the road ahead is full of unknown dangers, and they will need to rely on their wits and each other to make it to their destination.
Chapter 2: A Warm Welcome
Wyatt and Billy woke up to the sound of chirping birds, the sun was shining bright, and the air was crisp. They had camped out in the countryside, and it seemed like the perfect morning to get back on the road.
As they started packing their supplies, a pickup truck pulled up next to their campsite. Wyatt and Billy tensed up, not sure what to expect.
“Hey there, fellas!” a voice boomed from the truck. “You boys need any help?”
Wyatt and Billy looked at each other and relaxed a bit, realizing that they were in the company of a friendly face.
“Thanks, but we’re good. Just packing up,” Wyatt replied.
The man in the truck got out and introduced himself as Jim, a local farmer. He noticed the California license plates on their motorcycles and asked where they were headed.
“We’re making our way down to New Orleans,” Billy said. “We have some business to take care of.”
Jim nodded knowingly. “I see. Well, if you boys need anything, feel free to stop by my farm down the road. My wife makes a mean apple pie.”
Wyatt and Billy thanked him and watched as he drove away. They finished packing up and hit the road, feeling uplifted by the encounter with a friendly stranger.
As they rode along, they enjoyed the scenic views of the countryside. The rolling hills, the vast green fields, and the occasional barns and farmhouses dotted the landscape. It was a far cry from the concrete jungle they were used to back in California.
As the afternoon sun started to dip low on the horizon, they spotted a farmhouse off the road. It looked like the perfect spot to camp out for the night.
They parked their motorcycles and approached the house, hoping to find some friendly faces like Jim’s. To their surprise, they were greeted by a family of six sitting on the porch, watching the sunset.
“Hello there,” Wyatt said, extending his hand in greetings. “My friend and I were wondering if we could camp out in your field for the night.”
The family smiled and welcomed them warmly. “Of course, you’re more than welcome to stay here,” the mother said. “We could use some company.”
Wyatt and Billy set up their tents in the field adjacent to the house while the family finished their dinner. Soon, the mother came over with plates of food and invited them to join their meal.
They sat down at the table and dug in, savoring the taste of homemade food. The family was warm and welcoming, engaging them in lively conversation about their travels and adventures.
But as the night wore on and the conversation turned to politics and current affairs, Wyatt and Billy started to feel a hint of discomfort. They realized that the family’s views were vastly different from theirs, and they didn’t share the same values and beliefs.
The father of the family started talking about the “good old days,” when America was great and wholesome, and how the hippie movement was ruining the country.
Wyatt and Billy exchanged a knowing glance, realizing that they were in the midst of small-town prejudices. They didn’t want to engage in an argument, but they felt a sense of unease.
As the night dragged on, Wyatt and Billy decided to retire to their tents. They thanked the family for their hospitality and wished them goodnight.
As they lay in their tents, they couldn’t help but reflect on the encounter with the family. They were conflicted about the warm welcome they had received, juxtaposed with the conservative views that made them uncomfortable.
Wyatt and Billy realized that their journey was not just about selling drugs or experiencing the adventurous side of America. It was also about confronting the deep-seated prejudices and beliefs that divided the country.
As they drifted off to sleep, they knew that their journey had just begun. They had a lot to learn, a lot to experience, and a lot to overcome. But they were ready for the challenge.
Chapter 3: Into the Wild
Wyatt and Billy had been on the road for a few days now, riding through the picturesque landscapes of rural America. They had camped out in the countryside, cooked food on an open fire, and enjoyed the simplicity of life on the road. As they rode further into the heartland of America, they came across a sign that advertised a commune.
Curious, they decided to check it out. They rode down a dirt path that led them to a clearing in the woods. There, they saw a group of people living in tents and makeshift shelters. The people looked different from anyone they had ever seen before, with long hair, colorful clothing, and a carefree attitude.
Wyatt and Billy were intrigued. They parked their bikes and walked over to the group, introducing themselves. The people welcomed them with open arms, offering them food and drink. Wyatt and Billy learned that the group had been living off the grid for years, growing their own food, and relying on the natural resources around them.
The group’s leader, a woman named Willow, explained to Wyatt and Billy that their way of life was a rejection of the traditional values of mainstream society. “We don’t believe in the rat race,” she said. “We want to live in harmony with nature, not destroy it.”
Wyatt and Billy were fascinated by the group’s philosophy. They spent the next few days living with the group, immersing themselves in the simplicity of life without modern conveniences. They helped the group with their daily chores, such as tending to the garden and collecting firewood.
During their time at the commune, Wyatt and Billy met a lot of interesting people. There was a young woman named Rainbow, who had left her suburban life to join the group. She had a wild spirit and a love for music, and Wyatt was immediately drawn to her.
There was also a man named Hawk, who was an expert in herbal medicine. He showed Wyatt and Billy how to make natural remedies for common ailments like headaches and stomach aches.
The group’s way of life was eye-opening for Wyatt and Billy. They had never thought about living off the grid and relying on nature for their survival. They had always been on the move, looking for the next big adventure.
But as they sat around the campfire at night, listening to the sounds of the wilderness around them, they began to wonder if there was more to life than what they had been chasing.
On their last night at the commune, the group held a bonfire party, complete with music, dancing, and lots of food and drink. Wyatt and Billy felt free and happy, surrounded by like-minded people who didn’t judge them for their unconventional lifestyle.
But as much as they enjoyed the commune, they knew they couldn’t stay there forever. They had to continue their journey, find a place to sell their drugs, and get to New Orleans.
The next morning, they said goodbye to the group, promising to stay in touch. They rode off down the dirt path, feeling grateful for the experience they had just had.
As they rode away, Wyatt couldn’t help but think about Rainbow. He wondered what it would be like to stay at the commune with her and live a simple life among the trees and the animals. But he knew that wasn’t possible. He had to keep moving forward, on his quest for freedom.
Billy, on the other hand, was more practical. He was already thinking about where they could sell their drugs and make some money. He knew they needed to keep going, even if it meant leaving behind the commune and everything it represented.
As they rode into the distance, the sunset casting beautiful hues over the landscape, Wyatt and Billy knew that they were forever changed by their experience at the commune. They had seen a different way of life, a way of life that was far removed from the hustle and bustle of the modern world.
And though they couldn’t stay there forever, they knew that the memory of the commune would stay with them always, inspiring them to seek out adventure and freedom wherever they went.
Chapter 4: Breaking Down Barriers
Wyatt and Billy had been riding for hours, taking in the rolling hills and vast fields that stretched out before them. They had stopped for a bite to eat at a small diner, where they encountered some unfriendly locals who eyed them suspiciously.
As they were leaving, a group of rednecks pulled up in a truck and started throwing insults at them. “What the hell are you freaks doing here?” one of them yelled.
Wyatt and Billy tried to ignore them, but the rednecks got more aggressive, pushing them and grabbing at their long hair. Billy pushed back, and a scuffle broke out. The rednecks were outnumbered, and Wyatt and Billy were able to defend themselves.
The incident shook them, and they rode off feeling angry and frustrated. They knew they would encounter more prejudice and intolerance as they made their way across the country, but they weren’t going to let it stop them.
They rode on for hours until they came to a small town, where they decided to camp out for the night. They found a secluded area by a lake and set up their tents, making a fire and cooking up some beans.
As they sat around the fire, they talked about their plans and their hopes for the future. They shared stories of their past and the people they had met along the way.
Suddenly, they heard a rustling in the bushes. They stood up, ready to defend themselves, but it turned out to be an old man who had been watching them from a distance.
“Sorry to startle you,” he said. “I was just curious about you boys. You don’t see many hippie types in these parts.”
Wyatt and Billy relaxed and welcomed the old man to join them by the fire. He sat down and began to talk about his life in the small town, about how he had seen the world change around him.
He told them about the prejudices that had existed in the town for generations, about how people judged others based on their skin color, religion, or way of life. He said he didn’t agree with it, but it was just the way things were.
Wyatt and Billy listened intently, realizing that this man had lived through the same kind of intolerance that they had just experienced.
They talked into the night, sharing their perspectives and their hopes for a better world. The old man left, wishing them well on their journey.
The next morning, Wyatt and Billy packed up their camp and hit the road. They rode with a renewed sense of purpose, determined to break down the barriers of prejudice and intolerance that they had encountered.
They rode through small towns and rural areas, meeting people from all walks of life. They talked to farmers, factory workers, and teachers. They encountered more intolerance along the way, but they stood their ground and fought back.
As they rode, they began to notice a shift in the people they met. They encountered more open-minded individuals who were curious about their way of life. They began to challenge people’s views and to inspire change.
Their journey wasn’t easy, but it was worth it. They had broken down barriers and opened people’s minds. They had stood up for what they believed in and had made a difference.
As they rode into the sunset, they knew that their journey had just begun. There was still much work to be done, but they were ready for it, fueled by the power of their convictions and the strength of their friendship.
Chapter 5: An Unlikely Partnership
The sun was setting on the horizon as Wyatt and Billy stopped for a rest on the side of the road. They had been riding for days and were exhausted, but they had finally found a way to sell their drugs. They had met a lawyer in a small town who had connections to some big-time dealers in New Orleans. The lawyer, a middle-aged man with disheveled hair and bloodshot eyes, had offered to join them on their trip in exchange for a share of the profits.
At first, Wyatt and Billy were skeptical of the lawyer, but they needed someone who knew the ins and outs of the legal system to help them navigate their way through the drug trade. The lawyer, whose name was George, had a way with words and was able to negotiate deals with the dealers that Wyatt and Billy would never have been able to do on their own.
As they rode together, the trio formed an unlikely partnership, each learning from the other’s unique perspective. George, who had spent his entire life working in the legal system, was fascinated by the counterculture movement and the freedom that Wyatt and Billy represented. Wyatt and Billy, on the other hand, were intrigued by George’s knowledge of the law and his ability to use it to their advantage.
They traveled through small towns and big cities, selling their drugs to anyone who would buy them. They slept in rundown motels and camped out in the wilderness, sharing stories and discussing their plans for the future. Wyatt and Billy had never felt so alive, and they knew that their journey was more than just a trip to sell drugs. It was a journey to freedom, a journey to break free from the constraints of society and find their own path in life.
But their journey was not without its challenges. They ran into trouble with the law in several towns, narrowly escaping arrest. They also had to deal with the constant threat of violence from rival gangs and dealers who wanted a piece of their profits. Through it all, George remained calm and collected, using his legal knowledge to keep them out of trouble and negotiate their way through difficult situations.
As they approached New Orleans, the tension between the three of them began to rise. They had come so far, but they were also aware of the dangers that lay ahead. The drug trade in the city was volatile, and they knew that they had to be careful not to attract too much attention. They spent a few days in the city, meeting with dealers and selling their drugs, but the tension continued to mount.
One night, as they were walking back to their motel, a group of men approached them, brandishing weapons. Wyatt and Billy instinctively reached for their own weapons, but George intervened, using his legal knowledge to convince the men that they were simply tourists visiting the city. The men backed off, and the trio returned to their motel unharmed.
As they prepared to leave New Orleans and make their way back home, Wyatt, Billy, and George sat down for one final meal together. They had come a long way since they first set out on their journey, and they knew that they had formed a bond that would last a lifetime. They toasted to their success and to their friendship, knowing that they had achieved something that most people could only dream of.
But as they rode away from New Orleans, they were unaware of the betrayal that lay ahead. George had taken the money they had earned selling their drugs and disappeared into the night, leaving Wyatt and Billy stranded and broke. As they picked themselves up and tried to figure out what to do next, they realized that their journey was far from over. The road ahead was uncertain, but they knew that they had each other, and that they would continue to ride together, no matter what obstacles lay in their path.
Chapter 6: The Final Stretch
Wyatt, Billy, and the lawyer had finally made it to Mardi Gras. The streets were filled with people in colorful costumes, dancing, drinking, and reveling. The trio was swept up in the excitement and joined in the festivities.
They rode their motorcycles through the streets, the noise of the engines blending with the sounds of the crowds. The lawyer was drunk and rowdy, shouting obscenities and throwing beads at the women.
Wyatt and Billy kept their heads down, trying to avoid drawing attention to themselves. They knew they were carrying a lot of money and drugs, and they didn’t want to attract any unwanted attention.
As they made their way through the crowds, the lawyer stumbled and fell off his motorcycle. Wyatt and Billy stopped to help him up, but he was too drunk to stand.
“We need to get him somewhere safe,” Wyatt said.
Billy nodded in agreement, and they managed to drag the lawyer to a nearby hotel. They paid for a room and left him sleeping it off.
As they headed back out into the streets, they realized they had a problem. They had sold their drugs, but they had no money left. They had been counting on the lawyer to help them get home, but now they were stranded.
“We need to figure out how to get some cash,” Wyatt said.
They decided to try their luck at a casino. They parked their motorcycles and walked into the brightly lit, smoke-filled room. They had never been to a casino before, and they were a bit intimidated by the flashing lights and the noise.
They found the blackjack tables and sat down. Wyatt was the first to play, and he quickly lost his money. Billy fared a bit better, winning a few hands, but soon he too was out of cash.
As they walked out of the casino, they realized they had nothing left. They were broke and stranded in a strange city.
“We need to come up with a plan,” Billy said.
Wyatt nodded. “Let’s find a way to make some quick cash.”
They walked around the city, looking for opportunities. They saw people selling souvenirs, street performers, and even a group of musicians playing on the street corner.
“We could play some music,” Billy suggested.
Wyatt looked skeptical. “Neither of us knows how to play an instrument.”
Billy shrugged. “We could learn.”
They found a music store and bought a guitar and a harmonica. They spent the rest of the day practicing, trying to learn a few simple songs.
As the sun began to set, they set up on a street corner and started playing. At first, people walked by without paying much attention. But as they got better, a small crowd began to gather.
They played for hours, earning a few dollars here and there. But it wasn’t enough to get them home.
As they packed up their instruments, a man approached them. He was wearing a suit and carrying a briefcase.
“I couldn’t help but notice your music,” he said. “I’m a talent agent, and I think you have real potential.”
Wyatt and Billy looked at each other in disbelief. They had never thought of themselves as musicians.
The talent agent handed them his card and said, “If you’re interested, give me a call. I think we could make some money together.”
As they walked away, Wyatt and Billy were excited. Maybe they had found a way to make some real money.
But their excitement was short-lived. When they got back to the hotel, they found that the lawyer was gone. He had taken their money and left without a trace.
“We’re screwed,” Billy said.
Wyatt nodded. They had no money and no way to get home. They were stranded in a strange city with no one to turn to.
But then Wyatt had an idea. “Let’s sell our motorcycles.”
Billy looked shocked. “Our motorcycles? Are you crazy?”
But Wyatt was determined. “They’re worth a lot of money. It’s our only option.”
Reluctantly, Billy agreed. They found a motorcycle shop and sold their bikes for a fraction of what they were worth.
With the money they got from the sale, they bought bus tickets back home. They had lost everything, but they had gained something too. They had learned the true cost of their freedom and the importance of friendship.
As they sat on the bus, staring out the window at the passing scenery, they knew they had been changed forever. Their journey had been filled with unexpected twists and turns, but they had come out the other side stronger and wiser.
The final twist of their journey was unexpected. As they walked out of the bus station, they saw the lawyer standing there, waiting for them.
“I’m sorry,” he said. “I was drunk and stupid. I want to make it right.”
Wyatt and Billy looked at each other and then at the lawyer. They knew they couldn’t trust him, but they also knew that forgiveness was the only way to move forward.
“We forgive you,” Wyatt said.
The lawyer looked relieved. “Thank you. I’ll make it up to you, I promise.”
They walked away from the bus station, not knowing what the future held. But they also knew that they had each other, and that was all that mattered.
Chapter 7: The Cost of Freedom
As Wyatt and Billy rode towards the setting sun, they thought about the journey they had been on. From the highs of the open road, to the lows of being betrayed, they had experienced everything. And yet, they still felt like there was something missing.
They rode on, not knowing where they were headed, or what they would find when they got there. All they knew was that they were searching for something, something that could make all of this worthwhile.
As they approached a small town, they saw a commotion up ahead. A crowd had gathered around a man lying on the ground, his face bloodied and bruised.
Without hesitation, Wyatt and Billy rode towards the crowd, determined to help. As they got closer, they saw that the man on the ground was a black man, and that the attackers were a group of white men.
Suddenly, the memories of their own attack came flooding back, and they knew that they had to do something to stop this. They jumped off their bikes and ran towards the attackers, fists flying.
For what seemed like an eternity, they fought, all the while shouting words of encouragement to the man on the ground. And then, finally, the attackers scattered, leaving the man lying there, still and silent.
Wyatt and Billy rushed over to the man, checking for a pulse. He was alive, but just barely. They knew that they had to get him to a hospital, and fast.
They loaded the man onto one of their bikes, and rode towards the nearest hospital, their hearts pounding with fear and adrenaline.
As they arrived at the hospital, they were met by a group of police officers, guns drawn. They were ordered to get off their bikes, and to put their hands up.
For a moment, they thought that this was it, that they were going to be arrested for what they had done. But then, the officer in charge spoke.
“Boys, I don’t know what happened here, but I do know that you did the right thing. You saved this man’s life, and for that, I thank you.”
Wyatt and Billy breathed a sigh of relief, tears welling up in their eyes. They had done something good, something that they knew that they would be proud of for the rest of their lives.
As they rode away from the hospital, they knew that their journey was not over yet. They still had a long way to go, and many more battles to fight.
But they were ready, more ready than they had ever been. They had learned that the cost of freedom was high, but that it was also worth it.
And so, they rode towards the horizon, their bikes humming beneath them, the wind in their hair. They didn’t know what lay ahead, but they knew that they were ready for it.
For they were free, truly and completely free, and nothing could ever take that away from them.
Some scenes from the movie Easy Rider written by A.I.
EXT. HIGHWAY – DAY
Wyatt and Billy, two hippie bikers, ride their motorcycles down a long, open highway. They’re in their late twenties, dressed in denim jackets and leather boots, with long hair flowing in the wind.
(over the sound of the engines)
Man, this is what it’s all about. Freedom on the open road.
Yeah, until we get busted for selling drugs.
Come on, have a little faith. We’ll find a buyer down in New Orleans.
Well, let’s hope it’s not another dead end like last time.
They ride on, passing by small towns and big cities alike. The scenery changes from lush forests to barren deserts, but their determination never wavers.
EXT. DINER – DAY
Wyatt and Billy pull up to a small diner on the side of the road. They park their bikes and walk inside.
Welcome to Charlie’s Diner. What can I get you boys?
How about two coffees and a slice of pie?
The waitress brings over their order, as well as a plate of bacon and eggs.
Thanks, ma’am. This looks delicious.
You boys ain’t from around here, are you?
Nope, just passing through.
Well, you best watch your backs. Them locals don’t take kindly to your type.
Wyatt and Billy exchange a knowing glance, but remain unfazed.
Thanks for the warning. We’ll be on our way soon.
They finish their meal and pay the check, then head back outside to continue their journey.
EXT. HIGHWAY – DAY
Wyatt and Billy ride on, as the sun begins to set in the distance. The sky turns orange and pink, casting a warm glow over the landscape.
Would you look at that view.
Yeah, it’s something alright.
As they ride on, they come across a group of people gathered around a campfire on the side of the road. They pull over to check it out.
EXT. CAMPSITE – DAY
Wyatt and Billy approach the group, who welcome them with open arms.
Hey there. Mind if we join ya?
Of course, brother. Come on over and sit a spell.
They sit down and begin chatting with the group, sharing stories of their journey and learning about their way of life.
Logline: Two hippie bikers embark on a journey across America, encountering a series of people and places that challenge their beliefs and test their limits.
– Wyatt (early 30s): A laid-back biker with a deep sense of idealism and an unwavering commitment to living life on his own terms.
– Billy (mid-20s): Wyatt’s sidekick and protégé, a free-spirited young man who is eager to learn from Wyatt’s wisdom and experience.
– The Farmer (late 60s): A friendly patriarch who welcomes Wyatt and Billy into his home for a warm meal and conversation.
– The Farmer’s Family: A group of conservative, small-town people who are suspicious of Wyatt and Billy’s liberal beliefs.
EXT. COUNTRYSIDE – DAY
Wyatt and Billy are riding their motorcycles through a beautiful landscape, enjoying the scenery and the freedom of the open road. They come across a farmhouse and decide to stop and rest for a while.
INT. FARMHOUSE – DAY
Wyatt and Billy are greeted by The Farmer, a kind old man who invites them into his home for a meal.
Y’all look like you’ve been on the road for a while. Where are you headed?
We’re on our way to New Orleans. We’re selling some stuff down there.
I see. Well, you’re welcome to stay here for a while. My wife and kids would love to meet you.
This is great, man. I feel like we’re part of a real American family.
As they sit down to eat, The Farmer’s Family enters the room. They eye Wyatt and Billy warily, their faces twisted in suspicion.
THE FARMER’S WIFE
(to The Farmer)
Who are these boys, Henry? Have you even asked them what they’re selling in New Orleans?
We’re just selling some marijuana. We don’t mean any harm.
THE FARMER’S SON
Marijuana! That’s illegal! You’re nothing but a bunch of hippie criminals!
Wyatt and Billy exchange a glance, realizing that they are not welcome in this household. Nevertheless, they soldier on and try to keep the conversation light.
(to The Farmer)
This is really delicious food, Mr. Farmer. Did you grow it all yourself?
No, I didn’t. The world has changed a lot since I was your age. People are too busy chasing after money to care about the important things in life, like family and community.
That’s why we’re doing what we’re doing. We want to live life on our own terms, without any interference from the government or the establishment.
I hear you, son. I may not agree with everything you believe in, but I respect your right to have your own opinions. That’s what this country is all about.
Wyatt and Billy finish their meal and bid farewell to The Farmer and his family. As they get back on their motorcycles and continue their journey, they can’t help but feel a sense of sadness at the cultural divide that separates them from the rest of America.
Scene 3: Into the Wild
EXT. COUNTRYSIDE – DAY
Wyatt and Billy ride their motorcycles through a picturesque countryside. They stop by a stream to take a break.
What do you think, should we keep going or find a place to camp out for the night?
Let’s camp out, man. I could do with a break.
Alright, let’s find a spot.
They ride further into the wilderness until they come across a clearing where a group of people are gathered.
INT. WYATT AND BILLY’S TENT – NIGHT
Wyatt and Billy are sitting by the fire, smoking a joint. They are joined by a young woman named JADE and a man named JIMMY.
(talking about the commune)
We live off the land, man. It’s a beautiful way of life.
We grow our own food, make our own clothes. We don’t need anything else.
That sounds amazing.
(takes a hit from the joint)
I could get used to this.
You’re welcome to stay for as long as you like.
INT. COMMUNE DINING AREA – DAY
Wyatt and Billy are sitting with the group, eating a meal. They are amazed by the simplicity of the communal lifestyle.
(raises his glass)
To living off the land.
(to the group)
Thanks for having us. We’ve never experienced anything like this before.
That’s what we’re here for, man. To share our way of life.
Suddenly, a group of hunters arrive at the commune, looking for their prey. The group becomes tense, but Wyatt and Billy stand their ground and confront the hunters.
You can’t just come in here and start shooting things. This is a peaceful community.
Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t realize we were intruding on your hippie utopia.
You may not understand our way of life, but we don’t need violence to solve our problems.
The hunters eventually leave, and the group is left reeling from the tense encounter.
INT. WYATT AND BILLY’S TENT – NIGHT
Wyatt and Billy sit together, contemplating the events of the day.
(shaking his head)
I can’t believe those guys.
We showed them, man. We showed them that we won’t back down.
It’s funny, we came here to escape the prejudices of society, but they still managed to find us.
We can’t control how people treat us, but we can control how we respond.
They sit together in the silence of the wilderness, contemplating the lessons they’ve learned.
FADE TO BLACK.
EXT. COUNTRY ROAD – DAY
Wyatt and Billy are riding their motorcycles down a winding country road, enjoying the warm sunshine and open road. Suddenly, a group of pickup trucks pulls up beside them, filled with rednecks who start yelling insults and throwing beer cans.
What is this, a circus? You boys lost or something?
Wyatt and Billy ignore the insults and try to ride away, but the rednecks chase after them, revving their engines and swerving dangerously close to the bikers.
Hey, pretty boy! You need a haircut!
Billy flips the rednecks the bird, but as they round a bend in the road, the rednecks pull up ahead and block their path.
Time to teach these hippies a lesson!
Wyatt and Billy dismount their bikes and face off against the rednecks, fists clenched and adrenaline pumping.
You want a fight, you got it!
The rednecks charge at them, but Wyatt and Billy are faster and stronger than they look. They dodge and weave, landing punches and kicks that send the rednecks reeling.
Come on, boys, is that all you got?
But just as they think they’ve won, the rednecks pull out guns and aim them at Wyatt and Billy.
You’re gonna pay for disrespecting us, you damn hippies!
Wyatt and Billy freeze, realizing they may have made a grave miscalculation. But before the rednecks can pull the trigger, sirens blare in the distance, and a police car pulls up alongside them.
What the hell is going on here?
The rednecks drop their guns and make a run for it, leaving Wyatt and Billy standing there, shaken but alive.
We gotta get out of here. This is not a good place for us.
Billy nods, and they hop back on their bikes, revving their engines and speeding off down the road.
Scene 5: An Unlikely Partnership
INT. DINER – DAY
Wyatt and Billy sit at the counter, sipping on coffee. Their conversation is interrupted when an unkempt man enters the diner and stumbles towards them.
Hey there, fellas. Mind if I take a seat?
Wyatt and Billy exchange a glance, but motion for him to sit down.
What brings you here?
I’m a lawyer. Name’s George Hanson. I got kicked out of my hotel and I’m looking for a ride to New Orleans.
New Orleans, huh? What for?
(Slurring his words)
Mardi Gras, of course.
Wyatt and Billy hesitate, but eventually agree to let him join them.
INT. MOTORCYCLE – DAY
Wyatt and Billy ride their motorcycles as the drunken lawyer struggles to keep up on his bike. They ride in silence until George finally speaks up.
So what do you guys do for a living?
