Short Film Screenplay

By Dale Foster

Closing Time - One-Page Screenplay

Closing Time - Award


How can a man make sense of something so illogical? The answer was always a question - Why? It was a woman, of course. Not just any woman. A woman whose beauty makes men gasp when she enters a room, and keeps them entranced as she glides across the floor, triggering a primal male impulse that renders them unable to turn away, either out of attraction or fear. Her body entices them to believe for a moment that true unabated sensuality does exist, and everything else is second-rate. He knew the consequences of failure, of one false step. He thought he could handle it. He was wrong.
